So DJ Green Lantern is back in business with Curtis... after that incident that popped off a few years ago, prompting Green to step down as Shady Record's official DJ.
What was that incident? For those who don't know or who have forgotten-- which I've almost forgotten myself-- I'll refresh, in short: During the 50 vs. Jadakiss/Fat Joe "beef," Jadakiss had Green Lantern on speakerphone in front of a video camera as Green proceeded to candidly co-sign him. This was unbeknownst to Green Lantern himself, of course, who later found out after the tape was released and decided to step down as Shady Records DJ. Jadakiss was definitely wrong for that, and on Green Lantern's 2006 hit comeback mixtape Alive on Arrival, Kiss can be heard apologizing: "For the record, look at this man... Green Lantern, I'm sorry."
Sorry hasn't cut it, as I have yet to see a Jadakiss appearance on a Green Lantern tape.
Now, the wounds have healed and 50 Cent and Green have reconciled or whatever you wanna call it. Some say that's good money, but I think it's bullsh*t. After a diminishing recording career, and a loss of interest from his own hood-- and collectively, his entire hometown-- 50 Cent needs all the New York support he can get. First came Kim, now comes Green. Others may not see it. But I see it. Fif needs help. What other way to win back a significant amount of your New York fans by joining forces with other respected artists? Who's next? Jadakiss himself? But after riding high on his arrogance and pulling the cards of just about every New York City rapper, 50's amends with Green and Lil Kim might be the only beef he can squash. Why didn't you think about this years ago, when you began alienating everyone? You didn't think your little reign would last forever, did you?
Yeah. You did.
You may have guap, but nobody wants to f*ck with you.
Green Lantern might be one of the hottest mixtape DJs there are in New York City at the moment. What other way to penetrate the streets than by "squashing beef" with a street-accessible outlet?
Needless to say, G-Unit mixtapes have been replaced with Lil Whoopi joints--and it hurts to say it. But I prayed for G-Unit's downfall and I got it... although not quite the way I had envisioned.
Soon we'll all be shocked when we see Fat Joe smiling in the camera alongside Curt. Then we'll all laugh when 50 tries to make amends with Nas-- but gets the cold shoulder. Then will come Ja Rule-- Curt will offer to help him come back. See, everyone? Curt is about unity. Isn't that nice. Let's go buy his next album! Or better yet, the upcoming G-Unit album, called Cancel Easter.
Go ahead and admit it. You're trying to buddy up to save your ass. I see you, Curtis.
