Recently released rapper Shyne is continuing his attack on 50 Cent and G-Unit with his latest track, There Will Be Blood. The song comes less than a week after the Belizean-bred rapper released a freestyle over Alicia Keys’ single Unthinkable on which he dedicated a one line diss to Fif, and finds him insinuating that 50 works with the feds and referring to G-Unit members as “chipmunks.”
“The champ is here and not a minute too quickly, like Mike, I’m back to the city to drop 50. Upon my return, I empty the cartridge, got fat while I was gone, now I’ma send you where God is,” raps Shyne. “Ah-hem, let me clear my throat — when you talk to the Feds, spell my name with a ‘y’/I hate rats and chumps, you guys ain’t gorillas, you’re fucking chipmunks/FYI, I’m the king of the jungle.”
The beef, which started more than six years ago, is reportedly a result of a failed business deal between the two. While Shyne was incarcerated, Fif was trying to recruit him into G-Unit, but Shyne instead chose to establish his own label under the Def Jam Island Records label. Shortly afterwards, 50 started sending shots Shyne’s way during interviews and most notably during a freestyle on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 radio show. Shyne responded via the track For The Record, which was featured on his Godfather Buried Alive album, and Fif subsequently released Piggy Bank.
The war between the two had died down until recently, when Shyne began releasing freestyles. 50 has yet to respond.
