50 Cent doesn’t like Alicia anymore

Monday, April 21st, 2008

50 Cent has hit back at Alicia for criticizing gangsta rap - insisting her comments were “not really bright”.

Keys courted controversy by voicing her opinions on the hip-hop subgenre, telling U.S. magazine Blender, “Gangsta rap was a ploy to convince black people to kill each other.”

And her comments have enraged rapper 50 Cent - real name Curtis Jackson - whose music is said to fall into the gangsta rap category.
He tells TMZ.com, “I don’t like people who don’t like me … that statement changes my perception of Alicia Keys totally. It’s just not really a bright comment …”
Keys has since retracted the statement, insisting her words were taken out of context.

AK calls radio to clarify conspiracy theorist comments

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

Alicia Keys, Blender Shoot

Despite Blender magazine publishing quotes from Alicia making her sound like a conspiracy theorist, Alicia says she absolutely is not one and called up 2 radio shows to clear things up. Alicia called up Ryan Seacrest on KISSFM (click here for audio clip) and wants people to know that:

- She’s a very positive person.
- Her only aim is to uplift people and spread love.
- She’s not a conspiracy theorist.
- The government didn’t create gangsta rap, just the term. And, she thinks they could have done more at the time to do something about the problems the rappers were talking about.
- She doesn’t know who killed Biggie and 2pac, but she thinks the media sensationalized their deaths and their rivalry.

Alicia also called a second radio station and she spoke to them for quite a while and made it very clear how she feels. Click here to listen to the interview.

Alicia graces the new issue of Blender magazine, and in the magazine she reveals her conspiracy theories regarding ‘Gangsta rap,’ and the Black Panthers.

“‘Gangsta rap’ was a ploy to convince black people to kill each other,” Alicia says. “‘Gangsta rap’ didn’t exist.”

The 27-year old, who wears a gold AK-47 pendant around her neck to “symbolize strength, power and killing ‘em dead,” also has a few theories about the bi-coastal feud between slain rap legends Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., saying she believes it was fueled by “the government and the media, to stop another great black leader from existing.”
