50 Cent has a few words of advice for Nas in the new issue of XXL: put down the book. When asked, "What percentage of MCs in hip-hop do you think are actually intelligent?" 50 replied: "You have different kinds of people. You have people that are extremely book-smart that lack common sense, so they don't know what's going to affect their audience. ... For instance, Nas is a really smart guy. He reads books constantly. We were around him on the Nastradamus tour. He was almost weirder than me 'cause we would go to breakfast and he'd be there reading a book. Conceptually, I think that's what made him drift away from what his initial audience enjoys from him and why he's not hot right now." In the interview, 50 also insisted Jim Jones should be running Dipset — he's "a more credible artist than Cam'ron is," 50 said — revealed that he's been trying to hook up with M.O.P. and admitted that he doesn't eat cookies because he's looking after his weight. ...

just because you sell millions dont make you nice, wheres the power of the dollar 50 cent he was hot man, now in days it doesnt take much to be considered hot or sell records, listen and watch he came in the game with his own style and continues to do what he wants not what the audience. Now thats a true mc, all of nas's albums are hot. To remember in a competition you are only as good as your competition and now him is tarnished.

Am I the only one reading this who doesnt take it as a diss?

He just said that Nas is one of the few rappers that's really smart. Sounds like a compliment to me.

He just basically said that him being all preachy and intelectual stuff made Nas lose the momentum that he use to have. He's really just saying that if anyone in general wants to sell rap records you have to dumb it down.
^^^one of the only people who understood besides myself. I agree wholeheartedly with what u just said.

50 is just trying to stir up some contraversy so people will buzz about his album. That's fu*kin weak 50 disses Nas because he reads? Nas probably will never make as much money as 50 but 50 will never have as much respect or street cred as Nas. Nas has already cemented himself as a hip hop legend, 50 just sold alot of records. When Nas is in his 50's he can still perform all the cuts off Illmatic and people will still go wild. Who know's if 50 is still going to be relevant 10 years from now?

50 Cent is an idiot, but thats just my opinion. To each his own. Nas wants to expand his mind, 50 wants to expand his wallet. So, let Nas read and let 50 make wack a.ss club songs and get rich. Then maybe BOTH can progress. As long as they are f!ghting each other, or even criticizing each other, they are just wasting their time. Stop focusing on what you dislike and just grow in the fields you do like. Life would be much greater if everyone stopped worrying and trying to prevent others from being themselves. You want to be rich? Go get rich, but dont affect others or prevent others. You want to be intelligent? Then go read and study, but dont try to take away the worldly and physical aspects of life, such as money and fame.

I know thats a far stretch but still, it would be nice.

:D
