Rapper/producer 50 Cent – known for his displays of online pranks, punks and protracted social media mess – has another target in his sights. Fellow rapper French Montana has started to fight back in a fight that has gotten dirty, very quickly. French responded by posting a picture of what appears to be 50 Cent, kissing the rapper who discovered him and put him on – Eminem.
This “beef” all started because 50 Cent’s Power was about to return to the airwaves for its final season, so 50 Cent called out French Montana for apparently buying a $1 million+ used 2008 Bugatti.
But really, the drama started last year during Tekashi 69’s trial and the online discussion of how he turned state’s witness to protect himself. French Montana photoshopped a picture of 50 Cent with Tekashi’s tattoos, changing the “69” to “59,” and it has stuck with fans of his when referring to 50 Cent (even in this current incarnation of their “beef”).
After the car post, French Montana responded with a post of his own. French accused 50 Cent himself of allegedly promising to buy cars from Manhattan Motors, driving them and then returning them without actually purchasing them.
“YOU GOT A LAWSUIT WITH MANHATTAN MOTORS FOR RETURNING ALL THEM CARS YOU TOLD THEM YOU WAS BUYING AND THAT’S BIG FACTS 🐀,” French Montana wrote in the post. However, there’s no documentation on this as of yet, so these might not in fact be “big facts.”
This war of wallets and words then escalated, with 50 Cent claiming to even have the loan paperwork for Montana’s overly-expensive, older model Bugatti – alluding to the fact that the interest rate is probably very…high.
“🤭I just got the papers don’t ever in ya life play with me🤔 he got a f****g 60 month loan on a 08 🤦♂ n*gga it will be 2025 when you out that car. 👀 POWER in 3 days.”
It’s the “POWER in 3 days” parts that makes one wonder if this is all an orchestrated attempt at bringing more attention back on the rapper to promote his shows.
Part 2 of 50 Cent’s video posts features audio of him talking with someone who continues to make claims about French Montana’s car, the features it does and doesn’t have – and 50 Cent finds another chance to get a good dig in on French.
“😳you playing my old CD again hun! 😆💿 POWER returns in 3 days”
Another mention of Power.
Well, that’s what has led us to our current stalemate and stand-off. French Montana dropped a nuclear bomb (or tossed a firecracker, if this picture is edited) of 50 Cent apparently kissing his mentor and benefactor Eminem on the mouth – in front of an awkward DJ Kay Slay, a noted New York radio DJ at the time.

In the end, there were multiples of people providing proof that the photo of 50 Cent kissing Eminem was doctored. The user offers up that the post was taken from a Media Takeout photo from who knows when.
In the photo, 50 Cent is seen kissing an unknown woman some even surmised may have been singer Nicole Scherzinger – definitely NOT Eminem, however. Lastly, there’s also a purported screenshot of French Montana asking a user to delete their post that also debunked French’s claims.
One might be led to believe that French, in fact, didn’t have “big facts.”
