50 Cent is weighing in on the Beck-Beyonce Grammy controversy, arguing on behalf of Beck who took home the award for Album of the Year. Beyonce’s friend Kanye West was outraged over the her loss, telling E! News that Beck should have handed his award over to the King Bey.
Speaking to People about the drama, 50 says Kanye is crazy to think Beck shouldn’t have won the category. “[Beck] produced his record, wrote the record—there’s eleven producers on Beyoncé’s album. Kanye being a producer and a writer should see that.”
Fiddy adds, “I felt that I deserved Best New Artist for my first album—it’s the largest debut in rap with 13 million records sold and when’s the last time you ever saw Evanescence? Crickets, crickets. It’s just the way it is.”
50 does have a point?
