Much has been made of the feud between 50 Cent and Officer Ricky. Most have categorized their rivalry as being beef, but the G-Unit boss sees it differently, choosing to instead categorize it as battling.
In a recent interview with MTV, Fif reiterated that he doesn't wish death on the Miami rapper, but does question the motivation behind him starting the rivalry to begin with.
"When you look back at that entire scenario you say, 'what was the motivation of it, like where did it start?' He says it started because I looked at him the wrong way. That just means he wanted to compete, he wanted to move up, he wanted to create an awareness for himself... and he did it," 50 said. "This is why they changed the terminology from battling to beefing. Battling was always a part of the culture. They didn't do that until the 2Pac and Biggie situations. That's when it became taboo to actually mention an artist's name."
