50 Cent Did Not ‘Plead The Fifth,’ Calls Jay Z The ‘Most Overrated Rapper’

By: Val Powell - June 23, 2014

Rapper 50 Cent made a guest appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live hosted by Andy Cohen. In one of the segments, the rapper was asked to play “Plead the Fifth,” where he was asked three questions, but could only plead the fifth to one.

Cohen’s first question was “What is it like to be yelled at in the face by Beyonce?” 50 Cent said that it’s not really bad and Beyonce’s breath doesn’t smell. However, he said that he just has to keep his cool, hinting at the way Jay Z behaved when he was attacked by Beyonce’s sister Solange in an elevator last month.

According to 50 Cent, about a month ago he was confronted by Beyonce after she saw him talking to Jay Z, as Beyonce thought that 50 Cent was having a negative interaction with her husband.

For the next question, Cohen asked what sex was like with Kim Kardashian. 50 Cent said that he never slept with her and the dating rumors about them came when he posted a picture of himself with Kardashian at the MTV Awards in Australia.

For the last question, Cohen asked “Who is the most overrated hip-hop star of all time?” 50 Cent answered Jay Z and justified his reply by quoting a line from Jay Z’s song “So Appalled” and said, “He would say he was overrated, Rather be overrated than underpaid.”

50 Cent and Jay Z’s friendly rivalry dates back 15 years. In his 1999 single “How To Rob”, 50 Cent mentions Jay Z and other rappers’ by name, explaining how he would go about robbing each of them. Jay Z answered back with a line from “I’m Hot” by rapping “I’m about a dollar, what the f**k is 50 Cents?”

In an interview with MTV UK in 2011, 50 Cent said that he is not necessarily friends with Jay Z and they “Use each other. Repeatedly. For energy.”

    Not a good idea for celebrities to start a verbal war with other celebrities online….fan backlash can be fierce!!! However, I 100% agree with 50 cent both Beyoncé and Jay Z are very overrated. The media builds people up just like they are doing with those annoying Kardashians. The media writes stories and act like it is the public who wants to see what they are wearing, where they eat, what they are doing every second of the day when in reality most people could care less. If you look online you would think Kanye is huge, however, I was at Bonnaroo and he was laughed at and booed through his whole performance. Kanye kept screaming where is the press and being a total douche. Then the next morning somebody spray painted a wall “We all have Twitter, WE ARE THE PRESS!” Lol. What a joke. What you see from the media and the way it really is are two totally different things.
