"He puts together witty phrases and he's a great talent as a producer, but I still don't know who Kanye West is when I listen to him," 50 said recently in Miami. "By listening to the record, I don't know who he is all I know he's been in a car accident, that's what I know."
"I feel like Kanye West is successful because of me," he said. "After 50 Cent, [hip-hop fans] was looking for something non-confrontational, and they went after first thing that came along. That was Kanye West, and his record took off."
Can somebody please shoot 50 in the mouth so that he'll shut up. Ok, I'm just kidding, I wouldn't wish harm on anyone. But I do wish 50 Cent would just shut up. Why does he feel he has to comment on what's going on with everybody. First he commented on Nelly's jewelry, then Diddy's name change, now he's saying he is responsible for Kanye's success. If anybody other than Kanye is responsible for Kanye's success, it would be Jay-Z. Kanye is successful because he makes good music. Period.
