Once, Rick Ross and 50 Cent were operating in one of the hip hop’s most legendary rap beef that lasted for years. Mostly, when it all started depends on who you ask, but many agree that things started gripping between the two sometime in 2008. The next year, the rappers traded disses in a lyrical battle before Fif interviewed the mother of Ross’s child. There were clearly scathing interviews, terrible images and videos were published on social media, and members associated with their entourages reportedly got into a scuffle. Ross was also sued by Fifty for sampling “In Da Club, ” a case which was tossed out of court by a judge.

It’s been a years since these {two|2|a couple of} have taken public jabs at each other, and Rozay hoping to end beefs between his friends (a la Lil Wayne and Pusha T), he said he’s not opposed to collaborating with 50 Cent… if Fif was still hot like he was back in the day.

“Honestly, I’m a businessman,” Ross told Big Boy’s Neighborhood. “If 50 Cent still had value, I may have been done it, but not being funny. Not on no…he ain’t that dude no more.”

He added, “We was ridin’ through L.A. smokin’ to “Hate It or Love It” yesterday…that sh*t was dope. Salute to Cool & Dre, that’s Miami who did the production. Game, 50 Cent, that was dope. If he was still making music like that, of course. One of my dogs could hit me, Drake could hit me,” Ross continued. “And say Rozay, I got 50 on the record. If he was still dope like he was eight years ago, Rozay’ll lace that ’cause I’m on fire. It don’t matter who on the record.”

Complex caught up with 50 Cent to see what he had to say about Ross’s remarks. “I don’t know what his value is to music culture at this moment,” he said adding, “I never made music with him. I don’t have interest in making music with him…A lot of these guys, even when you make reference to music culture and stuff like that, they’re one-trick ponies, so they’re going to be gone. In hip hop, they say it’s not what have you done, what have you done for me lately, right? So you could get next to the guys that got momentum and try and survive based on that. But, it’s not a lot going on there.”
