50 Cent comments on the careers of Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, and Diddy on the Breakfast Club.
50 Cent was the guest on today's edition of the Breakfast Club, and as always he had some controversial remarks to make during his appearance. The rapper spoke of his former G-Unit collaborators Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo, who he likened to spoiled milk, as well as Diddy (or Puff Daddy as he's now calling himself again), who he compared to Milli Vanilli.
“Some people, they’re like milk,” said Fif of Yayo and Banks. "They have an expiration date and no matter what you do, they’ll spoil after a while.”
He then elaborated on his feelings about Yayo, who he revealed was purposely edited out of many of the scenes of the "Hold On" video. “I’ve done a lot for him to the point that being personable with people they’ll feel like that homeboy code, guy code type of energy,” he said. "They’ll be like, ‘You know what? You got it so you should give it to me,’ versus what makes sense. If you don’t sustain your value in the marketplace, I got to pay you the market rate.”
50 then went in on Diddy, talking about the rapper's tendency to have his lyrics written for him. “Puff is an excellent entertainer, not an artist,” he said. "He can say [his lyrics]. He didn’t write it. He’s not going to convince any of us that he wrote it. It was a part of his actual marketing. ‘Don’t worry ‘bout if I write rhymes. I write checks.’ For me, I look at it and I go, ‘OK. But now you can’t tell us that you singing the song like that, ‘cause that’s why we got rid of Milli Vanilli.’ We cross the lines, it get really interesting. We said that wasn’t cool. Now we’re saying it’s cool.”
