Following his recent signing to EMI Records, 50 Cent is hoping to rebuild his G-Unit empire, piece by piece. Clearly, 50 Cent and G-Unit Records is the biggest name EMI has had since the days of MC Hammer. Now the biggest fish in the pond again, 50 Cent wants things to go his way or he will raise hell. It has been no secret that 50 Cent is to Mims’ biggest fan.
In 2007, many people felt as if Mims could become the next big thing out of New York City. His movement was compared to 50 Cent’s from a few years earlier. When 50 Cent was asked about the comparisons, he said Mims would not make it. Months later, multiple websites reported news about Mims talking reckless about 50 Cent.
Right before 50 Cent addressed the issue, Mims came out to quickly retract his statement. This did a lot to bolster 50 Cent’s confidence as the top dog in the game. But, Mims was labeled a punk by many hip hop websites. While Mims often says he is a big fan of 50 Cent, he is known to associate with Fat Joe and Rick Ross.
By now, it is no secret about 50 Cent despising both rappers with a passion. Early in his career, 50 Cent said anyone who associated with his rivals were dissing him. In 2009, when Mims allowed Rick Ross to remix his “Life as a Star” track, 50 Cent issued a warning to Mims. Despite the warning, Mims continued to do what he does.
50 Cent is still likely watching and will probably do what he can to get Mims off the label. A new album from 50 Cent is expected to be released before the end of this year.
