50 Cent has a reminder for Jim Jones. Less than 24 hours after the two Hip Hop heavyweights exchanged words on Instagram, the For Life producer responded to the Dipset rapper’s post and pointed out he had Jones’ back during his beef with Cam’ron.
On Thursday (April 2), Fiddy shared a screenshot of Jones’ caption and wrote, “I learn something new everyday. See i looked out for this guy when he needed help. I made a call to get him his deal [with Koch] but people forget. being a good judge of character is detrimental to success and people change so you have to watch them. if you stay on point you will peep the change.”
When Jones and Cam were beefing in 2007, 50 Cent dropped a video for a diss track called “Funeral Music” and laid out how Dipset should be organized.
“Dipset, Cam, stay up, I’m not gonna destroy Dipset/Just gotta make changes,” he raps. “From now on, Jimmy’s the boss of Dipset/And Juelz is the capo, he’s gone/Cam’s demoted to soldier, we like Jimmy better anyway/Ballin’, come on, man/What’s the last Cam joint you liked?/Computers computin’, boogity, boobity, he’s gone/Cameron, you better learn how to talk to me, oh.”
Toward the end of the clip, a sketch of Cam with a pistol to his head pops up with “50 CENT” written on the gun and the words, “In loving Memory of the Career of Cameron ‘Cam’Ron’ Giles. 2-4-76 – 2-9-2007 (12:01 AM).”
Around the same time, 50 Cent told radio host Angie Martinez, “Koch is the graveyard. That’s where you go when the majors don’t want you any more.” Despite 50’s negative comments about the label, Jones sold more than 400,000 copies of Hustler’s P.O.M.E., his third project with the imprint.
“Jimmy did something that’s phenomenal,” 50 said at the time.
50 insinuated Jones was an informant in the Tekashi 6ix9ine racketeering case earlier this week after learning the embattled rapper could possibly get out of prison early due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Get Rich or Die Tryin’ OG wrote in an Instagram post, “Now individual 1 ya gonna have to tell everybody how you were on tape in court on the phone coaching Mel, to super duper violate shorty but the Feds never picked you up and the charges were Rico & conspiracy Confidential informant.”
“Individual 1” is a reference to Jones. During 6ix9ine’s October 2019 trial, a recording was played in court of Jones allegedly saying, “[Tekashi] not a gang member no more. He was never a gang member. They going to have to violate shorty because shorty is on some bullshit,” leading 50 to essentially call him a snitch.
