    How New Generation Hip-Hop Values Saved Rick Ross's Career from 50 Cent
    One of the most emblematic beefs in hip-hop history has been the never-ending grudge between 50 Cent and Rick Ross.
    While rap beefs are traditionally characterized by savage diss tracks, the heat between the two heavyweights highlighted a whole new dimension of rap beefs.
    From disrespectful taunts and clowning on social media to bringing the families of both rappers into the crosshairs, both artists showed how other means of disrespect can be as effective as diss tracks.
    This can be seen in the several career-threatening secrets that both artists released on each other, with the situation even escalating into legal action.
    However, the rivalry has equally produced several acid-laced diss tracks such as "Mafia Music" by Rick Ross and "Officer Ricky" by 50 Cent.
    Of all the secrets revealed by both artists, the biggest was the confirmation by 50 Cent that Rick Ross is a former corrections officer.
    This information will ordinarily not be harmful to most rappers.
    However, for Rick Ross, this meant that his gangsta, drug-pushing, crime boss persona and all of his lyrics were fake.
    This kind of revelation should be enough to destroy the credibility and career of a rapper like Rick Ross who has built his whole empire on the image of a rich crime boss.
    Imagine this! If in the late 90's it was proven that Snoop Dogg was not the real-life gangsta he was known to be, that was have meant the certain end of Snoop's career.
    Well, hip-hop is in a different place from where it was in the 90's and 2000's.
    The rise of trap music and other blended genres of hip-hop music has lowered the standards and expectations of most hip-hop lovers.
    Values like rappers' authenticity and lyrical content just don't matter anymore.
    Most hip-hop lovers don't care if its fake or real, original or borrowed.
    This is why the biggest rappers of today make their hits by either repeating the same words throughout the entire track or talking about experiences they know nothing about.
    That's how Rick Ross and many other rappers survived and continued thriving even after being exposed as fakes.
    However, if the Rick Ross vs. 50 Cent beef happened in the late 90s or early 2000s, it is highly unlikely Rick Ross's credibility and career would have survived.
    The Miami rapper also handled the situation in the worst possible way, making mistakes that could have helped destroy his credibility and career even faster.
    This video lists 5 of them.

I just unsubscribed to this channel. Until I get an apology for wanting entertainment in my ears I'm not going to like or subscribe. An apology for saying that wanting a rapper to be educated or anything positive in his life is considered a low value. I don't give a fuck if a police officer decides to rap. That shouldn't be seen as a low value. Why does rapper have to be BLACK, HETEROSEXUAL, AND A GHETTO UNEDUCATED CRIMINAL? Everything else accepted means the standards were lowered? You could've said the changed or "NEW VALUES" but I understand you a conservative and wanna make America great again.... So I'm butthurt. Lemme smoke this joint and I'll subcribe again. U just fucked up my high, that's all.

50 ain't never hurt nobody career the feds took murder inc down not 50 and shady. They went hard on em lyrically but that ain't hurting nobody career. 50 also beefed with Game Fat Joe nas jadakiss and camron and it didn't affect their careers. 50 ain't ending no careers never have never will the only careers he hurt was the ones he started with young buck yayo and banks he held them back and they couldn't feature with any artist cuz 50 might be beefing with the Artist the next day.

Your whole narrative is full of holes and got it mixed up. Rick Ross wasn't saved by the new generation, he enabled the new generation. There's a very significant time gap in between his expose and the rise of mumble rappers. You failed to mention that this whole time, Rick Ross in spite of his fake past, was still relevant in the game and posting big numbers sales wise. That in turn is what led to the explosion of fake rappers today. So, no, the new generation didn't save his career.

I DON’T HAVE CONCRETE PROOF BUT -50 WAS FINGER POPPING MASE AND PASSED HIM ON TO DIDDY -P DIDDY, JAMIE FOXX AND JAY Z WERE AT JAMIE FOXX’s HOUSE AND OBVIOUSLY TOLD HIM THAT HE HAD TO BEND OVER TO GET SOMEWHERE IN THEIR WORLD -BIRDMAN DID LIL WAYNE AND LIL WAYNE GOT CAUGHT ADMITTING THAT ON VIDEO FOOTAGE AND I SAW THE VIDEO MYSELF!!!

The whole about this video is funny because he did indeed get exposed for being a CO but Miami wouldve been put him out there for not havin a street background. Trick Daddy did that because Rozay ran with the crew(boobie boys) who allegedly was responsible for killin his older brother, Hollywood, who was Trinas boyfriend. Plenty of niggas done had legal situations n still ran the street.. I know niggas in the military who was touchin bricks. Now kingpin vs breakin down a few blocks, to me is wo different ppl.. All these niggas exaggerate.. Hell 50 himself wasnt kingpin but he had a block pumpin for him.. Being a CO dont automatically discredit a nigga. Go to Rozay page n he got real pictures with real Miami street legends before he started rapping.. Not sayin that i condone him lying but it automatically make u a fraud.Plus Fif didnt do nuthin about him, Game, Kiss, or Fat Joe. He only ruined one nigga n that was Ja Rule musically. In my opinion, they both real niggas they both just live by a different set of rules.

Because all rappers who disagreed with Rick Ross, their song's, albums ect could be classed as a confession. Eminem saved 50 cent from that with his song criminal but this beef would then serve as evidence that 50 cent is a drug dealing pimp... who needs evidence when you have a confession, unless 50 Cent's also a fake in which case what was his problem? unless 50 cent himself is actually collaborating with 'Officer Ricky' to further his career 😂the moral to this story - if real gangsters made real songs they would be in jail.

Hip hop doesn’t belong to the streets anymore. Hip hop is now pop and belongs to the suburbs. They don’t care if what you talk about is real or not, they don’t care if you was really with the shit. They just wanna hear ignorant shit and don’t care if its true or not. Thats exactly the reason why hip hop is not meant to be suburban and pop. If you make a music genre go pop, it always turns out shitty because the artists start coming for the money instead of coming for the love of the art. Its just a cash milking cow for these new rappers. Thats why they never show love to the oldschool or talk about some real shit.
