Earlier this year, 50 publicly taunted Jay and accused him of subliminal dissing practices.
"It's the competitive nature of the art form," Fif explained about his relationship with Jay. "It's still there, he still competes too. He just does it so subliminal that people don't read it. To me, it's a softer way to do it. A safer way to do it because no one directly feels offended by it...Why not just say it? I don't feel the [disses]. You gotta at least let the [diss be noticeable.] A guy that's that subtle, how do you really take offense to those activities? You know, I get really disrespectful, I don't mind. And then it's like, we can go to the other space and it can really go down." (Power 105.1)
The two rap stars later patched things up at Jay-Z and Eminem's New York City Yankee Stadium concert in September.
"We got a chance to kick it for a minute," 50 said referencing Jay. "I know people were interested in what that conversation was like. But they can ask Jay-Z. I take people's actions as if it's genuinely how they feel. I can only use what I saw you do as if that's what you meant. I can't understand what your motivation was prior to that." (MTV)
While Dr. Dre is currently working on his Detox album, Em's Recovery has remained on the sales chart since last summer.

Attempted Murder Charges Reinstated Against Trill Ent bosses

 Attempted murder charges have been reinstated against the managers of Hip-Hop label Trill Entertainment, home to rappers like Lil Boosie, Webbie and others.

The Louisiana Supreme Court issued the ruling yesterday (December 22nd) in relation to the shooting of local rapper Bruce "Beelow" Moore in 2005.

According to sources, Below was shot in the face at point blank range, for allegedly bootlegging artists on the Trill Entertainment label.

Two managers of the imprint, which was founded by the late rapper Pimp C., are accused of shooting Below in front of his record store Shop Smart Music and Fashion on July 4th.

Marcus Roach and Melvin Vernell Jr. have both been hit with attempted murder and armed robbery charges over the shooting.

The pair were originally charged in September of 2005, but they were dismissed in 2006, because prosecutors waited too long to to try the men on the charges.

Yesterday, a Baton Rouge court reversed the 2006 decision to dismiss the original charges against the men.

“We thought that’s the way the court should rule," said District Attorney Hillar Moore III, who is also leading the investigation into Lil Boosie, who is accused of 1st degree murder in a separate case.

Both Vernell and Roach maintain their innocence in the shooting and have vowed to take the case to the Supreme Court.

A Manhattan grand jury has indicted hapless Harlem-born rapper "G-Dep for the 1993 murder that he inadvertently confessed to earlier this month.
The P-Diddy protégé has now gone from being a free man -- once unsought in the cold-case shooting -- to a no-bail defendant facing a maximum possible prison term of 25 years to life.
"He was making amends," said G-Dep's lawyer, Michael Alperstein, explaining his client's confession to the fatal shooting.
Alperstein said the rapper's admission was prompted by a 12-step narcotics program.
Last week, G-Dep -- whose real name is Trevell Coleman -- was catapulted to a fame that he never enjoyed in hip-hop after confessing to a cold-case shooting, only to be shocked to learn that his alleged victim had died.
