I've Ignored It Long Enough: 50 Cent vs. Rick Ross

Now if you don't know, Rick Ross an 50 Cent are currently engaging in Hip Hop battle. The beef apparently stems from 50 Cent giving Ross a dirty look at the 2008 BET Awards. Rick Ross threw the first shot when he mentioned 50's son's mother in his song "Mafia Music". Then 50 responded with a song entitled "Officer Ricky (Go Ahead And Try Me)". Rick Ross, seeming unamused gave 50 Cent 48 hours to do something better. 50 then responded with a shocking action by flying Ross' son's mother, Tia Kemp, (who Rick Ross is on horrible terms with and is writing a tell all book about him) to New York for an interview and shopping spree. He also exposed that Rick Ross has another child by a call girl by the name of Brooke. He has also released cartoons mocking his correctional officer past which have included jabs at DJ Khaled, Fat Joe, Foxy Brown, even Chris Brown and Rihanna. 50 also turned an attempted diss into a joke by starting the "Pimpin Curly" skits in response to Rick Ross saying that they call 50 Curly in the south. A heavy blow came when 50 Cent put out the song "Tia Told Me" which even eluded to the fact that he and Ross son's mother had even been intimate. Ross has responded by releasing more diss tracks "Push Em Over A Ledge", "Kiss My Pinky Ring Curly" and "Don't Count The Boss Out" but they have not garnered the same buzz as 50's efforts. I'm a fan of both their music but this battle is looking pretty one sided right now especially with 50 Cent using as a constant attack mechanism, Ross definitely has to come harder.
