50 Cent took to Instagram to air out anybody unaware of Rakim’s power on the mic, as he shared a clip of the legendary New York rapper dropping a verse.
“If you don’t know who this is please don’t talk to me in life, please and thank you,” 50 wrote within the caption.
In the video, Rakim may be seen dropping bars mid-performance of the Eric B. and Rakim observe “Know The Ledge” whereas on NPR’s Tiny Desk series.
“Shells lay around on the battleground/Dead bodies are found throughout the town/Tried to put shame in my game to make a name/I’ma put it on a bullet, put it in your brain/Rip the block like a buckshot,” Rakim may be seen rapping within the video.
It isn’t the primary time 50 Cent has paid homage to Rakim. On The Game’s “Hate It or Love It,” 50 rapped, “My favorite rapper used to sing, ‘Check, check out my melody,’” in reference to Eric B. & Rakim’s Paid in Full observe “My Melody.”
However, 50 hasn’t been that targeted on rap-related outings as of late. He’s largely been absorbed in his TV and movie ventures, and just lately told Jalen Rose on his Renaissance Podcast that he thinks he and Nicki Minaj can be excellent for a rom-com.
“You know who would probably be fun to work with? Nicki Minaj would be fun to be in a romantic comedy with,” 50 said. “I kinda understand her a little bit more than the other people. When she’s being an asshole it’s because she’s telling you, ‘You’re not going to take advantage of me.’”
