View Full Version : 50 Cent No Longer An Alicia Keys Fan

Despite repeated explanations that her recent comments about gangsta rap were taken out of context, Alicia Keys has been criticized and dismissed by self-proclaimed gangsta rapper 50 Cent.

In an interview with Blender magazine, Keys was quoted as saying, "Gangsta rap was a ploy to convince black people to kill each other." The Grammy-winner has since released a statement claiming her words were "misrepresented."

"The point that I was trying to make was that the term was over-sloganized by some of the media causing reactions that were not always positive," Keys said in her statement. "Many of the 'gangsta rap' lyrics articulate the problems of the artists' experiences and I think all of us, including our leaders, could be doing more to address these problems including drugs, gang violence, crime, and other related social issues."

50 Cent isn't buying her clarification, telling the media outlet Showbuzz that in his eyes, she is now in the same category as Oprah Winfrey, an outspoken critic of gangsta rap.

"I don't like people who don't like me ... that statement changes my perception of Alicia Keys totally. It's just not really a bright comment," said 50.
