50 Cent: Irv Gotti’s Indictment A Sad Situation

50 Cent weighed in on the charges filed against Irv Gotti yesterday, telling AllHipHop.com: “I think it’s sad [about] Irv Gotti’s situation. He’s the guy who allowed his blessings to turn into something negative. After establishing himself in the music business, he tried to become something he never had the heart to be in his neighborhood. That’s where “Gotti’ came from. He was DJ Irv ahead of that. Anybody that’s in the street is trying to get out. You can’t blame anyone but Irv.”

The Associated Press reports The Inc.’s Irv Gotti surrendered yesterday to federal authorities to face money-laundering charges.

Is Fat Joe Dissin 50 Cent?

By now I’m sure all you hip hop heads heard Fat Joe’s track ‘Victim’. So I am going to pose the question that is on everyone’s mind. who is he getting at! References made in the lyrics describes someone being shot (50 Cent was shot nine times), someone snitching (50 Cent was accused of reporting that the music label known now as The Inc was illegaly laundering drug money), also Fat Joe uses Irv Gotti sentence stating that “victims get shot/killers pulls the trigger.” although no names were mentionned, these sublinimal shot matches closely 50 Cent’s profile but what did it for me is after [Joe] says, “victims get shot/killers pulls the trigger.” Right after he says 9 times out of 10, now keep in mind 50 Cent was shot 9 times.
