B.I.G. news in the hip-hop world: 50 Cent has a beef with someone. So, he took to Twitter to protest the latest, gravest event hurting the hip-hop community with a petition. Diddy’s exploitation of the Notorious B.I.G. [via Rap Radar/The Daily Swarm]:
Enough is enough, Biggie’s name should never have become Diddy’s Black Card. Just check out his latest video “The Ghost of Christopher Wallace” http://www.bit.ly/jay-diddy Let Diddy know to let B.I.G. rest in peace. When was the last time Diddy really was “biggin up his brother,” not biggin up his bank?
In the words of one Rap Radar commenter, “50 must have a new album coming out…”
Yes, 50’s “twitition” is either a desperate ploy for attention, or a sign that he’s been hiding under a rock for quite some time… which would again imply why he’s trying his best to get people to listen to him.
There’s no question Diddy’s nabbed a fair share of his fame using Biggie’s name. But that’s been happening since Diddy dropped his first record under the name “Puff Daddy” back in ’97. Names have changed, but his love, infatuation and constant use of B.I.G. for his own benefit has largely stayed the same.
Society has, by and large, continued on with this fact in tact. But now we can rest safe because 50 Cent is on the case. I hope 50 will continue to create important, world-changing petitions that point out the obvious and most likely will result in nothing. A little more than 24 hours later, 1,129 people have signed the petition. If you’ve got a few seconds to whittle away, check out the petition here.
