Wait, There’s More
Prior to the album’s release last week, 50 Cent publicly aired out people attached to the new LP. Specifically, the New York rapper targeted fashion designer Virgil Abloh over since-scrapped cover art.

Before You Go
Recently, 50 Cent didn’t hold back on dragging fellow New York rapper Don Q into his current feud with DJ Clue all over an alleged lack of support for Pop’s music. 50 appeared to threaten Q just over his affiliation with the popular radio personality.
“@donqhbtl he gotta get 👊popped in da mouth, i wish i knew yall was right there, @djclue i should have the little homies go f*ck up your party’s till they won’t even book you in the city.” -50 Cent’s Instagram
