50 Cent never lets up on the throttle when it comes to trolling his opponents. This time, Fif took aim at Benzino, a longtime enemy of Shady Records, regarding his sexual preferences.
On Wednesday, April 13, 50 Cent took to his infamous Instagram account with a short, seemingly homophobic post that blasted both Benzino and former G-Unit member Young Buck over their ties to transgender women in one fell swoop.
In the caption of the post, the New York MC wrote, “Young Buck, Benzino embrace who you are but don’t pat anyone when they score a basket fool. Lol. Hahaha, no for real! Punk.”
The social media post was accompanied by a video clip of an alleged phone call between Benzino and transgender model Shauna Brooks, in which a voice believed to be ‘Zino’s’ can be heard complimenting the transgender woman’s appearance and discuss their sexual preferences. He also seems to address his own assumptions that being involved in the transgender community would look bad on him.
“I’m adapting to this type of work,” Benzino reportedly told the model. “But who I was before, I’m this, like, alpha male, you know what I’m saying? I’m that nigga. Now yeah, I say, this shit is all new to me and I’m trying to be open witty about it. But then I’m like, wow that crazy thing because she looks like, I mean, the way they made you look.
He continued, “And it’s not even like I said, ‘So let me go see some other Trans people now. I didn’t even watch that. I didn’t even do that. I like porn, but I don’t watch tranny porn. I don’t watch gay porn, but that’s just me, you know what I’m sayin’? I’m old in my ways, I’m a 55 year old nigga, you know what I’m sayin’? It is what it is. They don’t think of me and what I might go through. It is not fair.
Then, about an hour after his initial post, the rapper-turned-TV executive went on to post another music video with more audio believed to be Benzino further explaining to Shauna Brooks that he wanted to avoid any public association with the community. transgender.
“You don’t look bad, I do,” Zino said apparently. “You could never look bad. Because, you see, in this world, you don’t do anything wrong. It would be wrong if I did. Can’t you put that in your head? You don’t look bad, Shauna You look like a fuckin’ chick Hey she’s just a chick and she’s trying to fuck a a***a I’m looking bad cause ‘What the hell what the fuck are you doing trying to fuck a transgender?'”
In response, Benzino clapped back with his own seemingly homophobic snaps aimed at 50 Cent regarding a storyline from Fif’s hit show. Power Book II: Ghost which features characters from the LGBTQ+ community.
“So @50cent wants to clown me for fucking with the trans community?” Benzino wrote on his IG Story on Wednesday, April 13. “Someone asks him why Able has gone gay as hell this season. Yo @50cent I heard you watch those Drew and Everett scenes every week.”
50 Cent’s trolling session on Wednesday April 13 appears to have been sparked by a recent episode of the It’s tricky with Raquel Harper podcast released Tuesday, April 12. During the interview, Young Buck not only addressed rumors that he was gay, but also claimed that his ongoing legal battle with his former boss at G-Unit had forced him into bankruptcy.
This latest news comes just a day after video footage of Benzino’s 2020 arrest for damaging a man’s car following an argument over “Zino’s ex-girlfriend Althea Eaton surfaced in line.
