50 Cent Compares Bobby Shmurda To Trinidad Jame$, Says He 'Needs Work'
50 Cent isn't one to bite his tongue, as we've seen with the Floyd Mayweather ordeal, and he recently offered up his opinion on buzzing rapper Bobby Shmurda.
During an upcoming G-Unit reunion special on SiriusXM, Fif weighed in on a range of topics including some of hip-hop's new talent, according to AllHipHop.
Bobby Shmurda first created a buzz for himself back in March when his visual for the track "Hot N***a" hit YouTube and since then, the young Brooklyn emcee has been receiving love from just about everyone including Beyonce and Jay Z. However, fellow New York rapper 50 Cent doesn't share their sentiments.
While talking with SiriusXM, he compared Shmurda to the recently independent Trinidad Jame$ saying, "I think he needs work. The artist needs work. It's like the Trinidad James thing. When a guy doesn't actually have song structure. (Banks: "It's not like he knew it was going to happen.") Nah, he just did the dance. Then when I looked at it, it felt like Diddy. It felt like [Micheal Jackson] a little bit in that "Remember The Time" video."
Fif's comments may be fueled by the fact that "Hot N***a" jacked the beat originally used for G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks' "Jackpot."
Just last month, Shmurda signed a deal with Epic Records.
Label executive Sha Money XL broke the news on his social media accounts saying, "Deal is done @bobby_shmurda #EPIC no one does the underdogs better then me. Brooklyn this 1 is for you."
Though he has been featured on a number of recently released tracks including Uncle Murda's "Body Dance," Bobby Shmurda has yet to release a follow up to the track that made him an internet sensation.
