Earlier in the week, 50 Cent made mention of his cousin and fellow rapper Continental Five during an interview and stated that Continental Five was trying to emulate his past lifestyle in his music and revealed that he’s not a fan of his cousin’s records “because he has never been through the things he’s talking about.” Continental Five recently responded to Fifty’s comments in a video interview with Forbez DVD and also explained his side of the story. According to the rapper, the lifestyle he raps about is one he lives with every day and even suffers from paranoia due to the “beef” 50 Cent involves himself in. “Whatever stories you hear about this nigga, I deal with it on an everyday basis,” Continental explained. “I deal with that shit. So, when he’s gone and doing the rap shit and he’s starting the beef and he’s igniting all that, I’m still here…I’ve been paranoid. I don’t be out like that because—I’m worried about if a nigga would try to do it. None of the beef that I’m gripped up for or be running around with is not mines. I’m not outside starting trouble. This is somebody else’s problems I inherited.”
The rapper went on to address 50 Cent directly as he shot down comments made in regards to what Fifty believes was his desire to be a gangster rapper. Continental Five also called out 50 Cent for causing issues that he’ll never be forced to deal with. “So, to a nigga listening, nobody’s trying to be a gangster. I want to get the fuck away from this. I’m trying to do my thing,” said Continental. “So, when you see me rapping it’s not me rapping about trying to portray something. No nigga, this what’s gon’ get me to get the fuck out the situation because I’m still in that situation. So, while you’re in your bulletproof and you good and you somewhere else, the reality is I still gotta deal with the shit that comes with your issues.”
