50 Cent came to the defense of controversial young rapper Chief Keef. During an appearance on the Ryan Cameron show, 50 tried to see Keef’s side of his Twitter feud with Lupe Fiasco.
“The things that Lupe said about Chief Keef, I don’t think he said it about him,” Fif said in the interview. “I think he said it about the actual element, the environment. But there’s no way you don’t personalize when a person is saying, you, talking about you. So when he responds by saying he’s going to smack him or whatever it’s because you keep attacking me and I’m sitting here and you attacking me and what am I supposed to do? [This is] from his perspective and Chicago had 158 homicides this summer. 38 of them were teens. They got to go through an investigation to make sure that was actually someone affiliated with Chief Keef. You can’t just put that on him ’cause the boy made a diss song and he’s out there. He’s out there and active and you saw all those guns the boy had in that [recently pulled Pitchfork] video.”
