50 Cent Is Still Pretty Good At Embarrassing Other Rappers
While 50 Cent's sneering, self-righteous, conniving persona basically keeps him from making good music at all these days, he's still perfectly suited to go in on another rapper. And so: "Officer Ricky (Go Head, Try Me)." Making fun of Rick Ross for being a correctional officer is a little 2008, maybe, but then again, Ross supposedly started it. As always, 50 has a gift for the charmingly obvious (Ja Rule's terrible rap career was self-evidently wretched long before Curtis pointed it out, then ended it): "Every other word out your mouth's 'bout a bird/Like you sling cocaine, and this is absurd." And you know, it is. Next up, supposedly, Lil Wayne--but I think that guy's flying a little high for a 50 Cent ad lib to make much of a dent. [Via Nah Right]
