If you’re wanting a more brutal battle than anything happening on the football field this Thanksgiving Day, look no further: 50 Cent and Rick Ross are both dropping new mixtapes the same time! The legendary rivals are going at it again!
50 Cent and Rick Ross have been sworn enemies for nearly six years, and it doesn’t seem like they’ll be making amends this holiday season. Both 50 and Rick are about to drop new mixtapes on November 26 — that’s right, Thanksgiving Day! Their rivalry is about to freshen up; guess they won’t be passing turkey around the same table, then?
Brace yourselves: the rivalry between Rick and 50 is going to get very intense, very fast! Unlike a lot of their past beefs, though, this fight is just going to be about music, plain and simple. Fiddy is releasing The Kanan Tape on the same day that Rick drops Renzel Remixes. The Kanan Tape is named after 50’s character on Power, will include eight tracks, as he stated in October. While promoting the tape, he also let everyone know that he had been working on the show, “making sure season 3 is the best s–t you have seen on TV.” Is this going to be the best s–t we’ve ever heard?
Renzel Remixes is just a preview of Rick’s new album, Black Market, which drops on December 4. The mixtape has some amazing remixes coming our way; think Adele and 2Pac, great stuff like his interpretation of “Starin Thru My Rearview.” Diehard 50 and Rick fans will probably be dedicated to their dude, but the rest of us can have the best of both worlds! If you can’t wait until Thanksgiving, CLICK HERE to satisfy your craving for some old Rick Ross tunes!
Their feud has extended far beyond music, getting personal and nasty with every turn. They traded blows in 2009 when 50 allegedly made threats against DJ Khaled‘s mom, after a site promoting Rick & Khaled’s music reportedly posted an offensive image of his son. Not good! The feud picked up full steam in July 2015 again when 50 declared bankruptcy; Rick gleefully rubbed it in his face. “Get rich or die tryin’ and now you bankrupt,” he said.
