50 Cent to Alicia Keys: “I donít give a fuck if you can classically play the piano.”

posted by on April 21 at 15:52 PM

For the three of you following the Alicia Keys drama (her saying shit about gangsta rap and then taking it back… a week before her tour kicks off), 50 Cent is now speaking out against the Grammy-winning pianist. Via eonline.com (of all places):

Alicia recently defended her gansta rap quotes in Blender magazine, but apparently the explanation was not enough for Fiddy, who had some major dissing to do.

“I donít like Alicia Keys no more…If she thinks what they consider [to be] gangsta music is [made] to bring black people down, then I think my s—t falls into that category. I donít like people who donít like me.”

And from the sound of it, the rapper isn’t a fan of her music, either.

“I donít think that [her] classical s—t is cool. I donít give a f—k if you can classically play the piano. I havenít been classically trained, because my upbringing, nobody put me in front of a piano at that time…I could f—king care less about the s—t. So she donít like the music that embodies the harsh realities because theyíre not her realities. She hasnít been subjected to the same things.”

didn't he also say he was a businessman so his music had nothing to do with "art" but was instead for his bankroll? what a cry baby.

How aggressively anti-intellectual. Oops, I mean how "real" and "gritty" and "honest."

Weird... 50 is overreacting?! That's new and different! 50 is the most emotionally underdeveloped little bitch in the game. He cuts off anyone who he perceives as a threat to his weak self-esteem. How many people are left in G-Unit?
