Rapper 50 Cent has grown a bit weary of Diddy name-dropping the Notorious B.I.G.
Ever since his death 13 years ago, Biggie's memory has come hand-in-hand with Diddy’s frequent dedications to his former colleague. From past odes like “I’ll Be Missing You” to more recent tracks like Jay Electronica’s “The Ghost of Christopher Wallace,” Diddy's bond with the slain rapper is never far from the public's awareness.
It's a habit that 50 Cent has found distasteful, and he's called Diddy out via an online petition. “Enough is enough,” 50 Cent said. “Biggie’s name should never have become Diddy’s Black Card.”
The message also comes with a link where Twitter followers can sign and plead their allegiance to 50’s cause, which seems intent on exposing Diddy for exploiting Biggie’s memory for his own gain.
“Let Diddy know to let B.I.G. rest in peace,” the rapper added. “When was the last time Diddy really was 'biggin up his brother,' not biggin up his bank?”
Wow. What do you think - does 50 Cent have a point?
