New Jersey's pineappleCITI says 50 Cent jacked her beat.
While 50 Cent's been a household name for over a decade at this point, the rapper's been making waves with ventures aside from music. However, with the success of his television efforts, it seems like he's been reshifting some of his focus towards music again. Last week, he dropped off the Jeremih assisted "Still Think Im Nothing." Prior to that, he built anticipation in the hip hop community after teasing a collaboration with Gucci Mane for "On Something." The official version of the song has yet to surface but he's already facing some backlash for it.
Earlier today, pineappleCITI, a New Jersey rapper, accused 50 Cent of robbing the beat for her song "Rose Colored" for his upcoming single "On Something." The rapper says that 50 Cent and his engineer first inquired about getting the beat for "Rose Colored" last year. She says that she sent them the beat for the song but shortly after doing so, 50 and his engineer cut off communication with her. In addition to that, she said that this morning she woke up to a block from 50 Cent on Instagram.
"Last year when 50 Cent’s engineer, Ky Miller, reached out to me and said 50 wanted to get on my ‘Rose Colored’ song, I was super, super excited, you know what I mean? I’m definitely a 50 Cent fan. Ky Miller told me to send the instrumental to him, which I did. And I heard nothing back," she said. After her fans told her that one of 50's latest tracks sounded like her joint "Rose Colored," she was in disbelief. She tried to reach out to 50 Cent and Ky Miller but was ignored and opted to making the issue a public matter.https://twitter.com/_/status/932632896149495809
After going public about the matter, she says 50 Cent's engineer finally reached out to her.
"But as soon as I made that post a couple of days ago, Ky Miller decided to call me back," she said, "He told me that 50 said he would give me 12 bars on his song ‘On Something,’ which to me, I wasn’t too sure about. Like I said, I still just want 50 Cent to call me. Like I said, 50, I got all love for you, bro. But I just feel like it’s a respect thing.”
