50 Cent is now downplaying his infamous feud with rapper Rick Ross. 50 says that the whole thing was just a case of Ross looking to make a name for himself via 50, and that it's no different than any other hip hop battle.
But 50 says he never took the insults they traded back-and-forth too personally.
"He says it started because I looked at him the wrong way," Fif recalled of an incident on the red carpet for the 2009 BET Awards. "That just means he wanted to compete, he wanted to move up, he wanted to create an awareness for himself, and he did it."
"This is why they changed the terminology from 'battling' to 'beefing,'" he added. "It was always that battling was a part of the culture; they didn't do that until Tupac and Biggie Smalls' situation," he said. "That's when it became taboo to actually mention an artist's name."
