50 Cent Confronts Steve Stoute At New York Knicks Game [Details]
Rucuss staffMarch 3, 2014
If you make negative comments about 50 Cent than prepare to be dealt with.
Brand expert Steve Stoute was caught on the losing end of an encounter with 50 over the weekend. During Friday night’s New York Knicks game, 50 Cent confronted Stoute about his comments he made during an interview with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez .
Stoute discussed who he felt were the top influential rappers and Jay Z, Dr. Dre, Diddy and Kanye West all made his list. Unfortunately, 50 Cent, who recently left Interscope for an indie label, did not.
When asked why the slight, Stoute had plenty to say about 50.
“He hasn’t had a hit in a really long time,” he told Martinez. “He has not made anything musically that’s changed in a very long time. I feel like he’s always gearing up for something that never happens. Hopefully, now that he’s independent and there’s no record company to blame, his aggressive content will get on the air.”
When Martinez tried to make a case for 50 by listing his business ventures and deals, Steve continued his case for not putting him on the list.
“I think that he’s trying to get back,” Stoute said. “But those guys… music is a great platform. If you’re an entrepreneur, you have… you’re currently active making music, you’re currently active touching people with albums, it makes it much easier to venture into business deals that will become successful using the music to parlay to get it done.”
Stoute continued, “And without having music that’s meaningful over the last, probably the last great song he’s made was “I Get Money”? Right? You know how long ago…? Kanye’s put out three albums, four albums since then.”
After Stoute’s comments, Martinez warned Stoute that 50 might put him in a song now. The brand expert replied, “Great! Hopefully IT GETS on the radio!”
50 Cent, who is currently on probation for domestic violence, and Stoute’s history dates back to 2000. Stoute was head of Columbia Records Urban department and he dropped 50 from the label after he got shot nine times that year.
During an interview with Funkmaster Flex, 50 made it clear that he didn’t like Stoute because of it. Nor did he like his business practices.
“That’s why I don’t like Steve Stoute,” 50 said. “I still don’t like him!”
