50 Cent’s Empire Beef, A Complete Guide

On Sunday, Vivica A. Fox visited Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live and social media went crazy after her remarks about the 50 Cent Vibe cover.  The two began discussing Vivica Fox’s Empire role leading to questions about 50 Cent blaming the Empire TV show’s rating drop on the “gay stuff” on the show.

Cohen asked Vivica, “What were your thoughts when 50 Cent blamed the season ratings dip on ‘gay stuff’?”

Is 50 Cent Gay
Vivica responded, “First of all, you know the pot called the kettle black is all I’m saying.” Vivica had the world wondering: Is 50 Cent gay? Cohen then asked the 51-year-old actress if she meant 50 Cent was gay and she answered “he’s not.”

Vivica Fox then added, “I’ll just never forget there was a Vibe cover with him and Souja Boy that made me go, ‘hmmm’ he looked like a booty snatcher on that one to me.”

When Fox commented on the 50 Cent Vibe cover she was actually referring to the 50 Cent and Soulja Boy XXL cover, which featured 50 wearing a white mask with his arm on Soulja Boy’s shoulder.  50 Cent and Soulja Boy are rather close on the magazine’s cover.

You gotta love social media:

50 Cent Dies Trying
So there’s more 50 Cent, Empire beef.  The Vivica Fox, 50 Cent beef marks yet another instance of 50 feuding with stars of the Empire TV show.


With the public waiting on Vivica to round up the cast of Empire to clap back at 50, lets do a rundown of the history of 50 Cent v. Empire.

50 Cent Responds to Cookie
50 Cent posted a video response to Cookie’s comments.  He posted a video montage dedicated to Cookie stating, “I can’t believe Cookie would say some shit like that about me. Thirsty, me? Thirsty? Come on. You stupid.”

“Man, me and Cookie go way back, you know I hit that!”

Similar to the way he created beef with Kanye West in order to catapult himself to the top of hip-hop, we are certain 50 Cent will continue to manufacture beef with Empire to promote Power.

Ain’t About the Money Empire Soundtrack


If you know I got no shame
Aint about the money its about the power no shame
Aint about the money its about the power you know I got no shame
Aint about the money its about the power no shame
Aint about the money its about the power

Think about it think about it
Aint no need to think about it
Get that Money keep that money
No they not the same thing
Money cant be anybody
This somebody that nobody
When it comes to power
Circle super smaller names hey

Money make em do it coz of what you give to em
Power make em do it coz you told them to do it
Money make you fly power never die dont know why
Money cant be lost power never need an alibi
Love the good in the champagne
Power in my pride power in my last days

Said if I dont know nothin I know this paper
Bigger than the world steppin over skyscrappers
If I dont know nothin one thing I know
Power over money man thats just how it goes

If you know I got no shame
Aint about the money its about the power no shame
Aint about the money its about the power you know I got no shame
Aint about the money its about the power no shame
Aint about the money its about the power

When Im in your presence you can feel the power
Even if this company was built from powder
Girls kissin on the couch women in the shower
Surround myself with kings you can keep the cowards
Everytime I reminisce Im rappin different bitches
Blood is thicker than water but B.S is the thickest
Let the chain round my neck tell my life story
Born into the money but would die for glory

Get ready for the takeover that face lip and makeover
that case that I break open that great fifth like Beethoven
If you wanna get it papi I can be in the team
34 in a rocket cuz Hakeems the Dream
Get it they dont get it

Oooh were makin moves youre only doin
what my power let you do
You see that money aint everybodys thing
when it comes to power can only be one king

Said if I don”t know nothin I know this paper
Bigger than the world steppin over skyscrappers
If I dont know nothin one thing I know
Power over money man thats just how it goes

If you know I got no shame
Aint about the money its about the power no shame
Aint about the money its about the power you know I got no shame
Aint about the money its about the power no shame
Aint about the money its about the power

Lyrics

Life is like a big merry-go-round,
You’re up and then down,
Going in circles trying to get to where you are.
Everybody’s been counting you out,
But where are they now?
Sitting in the same old place,
Just faces in the crowd.
We all make mistakes,
You might fall on your face,
But you gotta get up
[Chorus]
I’d rather stand tall
Than live on my knees,
‘Cause I am a conqueror,
And I won’t accept defeat
Try telling me no,
One thing about me
Is I am a conqueror,
I am a conqueror
Ooh oh
Got a vision that no one else sees,
Lot of dirty work, roll up your sleeves,
Remember there’s a war out there,
So come prepared to fight
You never know where the road leads you,
Not everyone’s gonna believe you,
And even though they’re wrong, don’t prove them right.
[Chorus]
I’d rather stand tall tall
Than live on my knees can’t live on my knees
‘Cause I am a conqueror
And I won’t accept defeat
Try telling me no no
One thing about me one thing about me
Is I am a conqueror,
I am a conqueror
Ooh oh Ooh oh
I am a conqueror
We all make mistakes,
You might fall on your face,
But you gotta get up
We all make mistakes,
You might fall on your face,
Don’t ever give up
[Chorus]
I’d rather stand tall oooh
Than live on my knees can’t live on my knees
‘Cause I am a conqueror I am a conqueror
And I won’t accept defeat And I won’t accept defeat
Try telling me no try telling me no
One thing about me one thing about me
Is I am a conqueror is I am a conqueror
I am a conqueror
Ooh oh Ooh oh
I am a conqueror
We all make mistakes,
You might fall on your face,
But I am a conqueror oh ooh
