50 Cent is taking credit for Eminem’s no diss track response to Nick Cannon’s recent musical assault.
The uproar started after Eminem launched insults at Cannon’s ex-wife Mariah Carey in his verse on Fat Joe and Dre’s track “Lord Above,” which led Cannon to respond with a series of diss tracks in December (19).
Eminem responded by calling the actor and TV host a “bougie f**k” on Twitter but decided not to put anything on wax.
Now 50 Cent, born Curtis Jackson, claims Eminem backed off largely due to his intervention.
“I told him don’t even say nothing to him,” 50 tells The Wrap. “The (Cannon) record is terrible.”
He added: “You can’t argue with a fool. When you understand that a person is not registering even when they’re losing, then the argument goes forever. So you should just stop.”
Carey began feuding with Eminem after he claimed he once had a relationship with her – which she has always denied.
In 2009, she released the hit Obsessed, about a man who claims to be having a relationship with her, and he fired back with the track The Warning later that year.
