Rapper superstar 50 Cent has changed his perception of Alicia Keys after reading about her infamous "Gangsta rap" remark saying that it wasn't a "bright comment."
The R&B songstress has been quoted by Blender magazine as saying, "Gangsta rap was so over-sloganized during that time."
Her comment had made such a buzz that the 27-year-old "Fallin" singer released a statement explaining that she had been "misinterpreted."
She had said, "Anyone who knows me and my character, knows that I am not a conspiracy theorist or, by implication, a racist. My comments about 'gangsta rap' were in no way trying to suggest that the government is responsible for creating this genre of rap music.
"The recent implications about me are too radical and too dramatic a departure from whom I have continually demonstrated myself to be."
But 50 Cent isn't buying her explanation saying his opinion of the singer has been changed after that.
He tells The Showbuzz, "I don't like Alicia Keys no more though... the same reason why I said that I don't like Oprah Winfrey."
"I'm prejudice[d]. I don't like people who don't like me. If you don't like the content that I write because of my experiences; I am being who I am when I am writing it. I fall into that 'label' as far as you considering artists creating 'Gangsta music,' we fall into that."
"If she don't like that, [then] I don't like that classical music s*** she be doing. At some point she's playing some s*** that don't relate to me. We listen to it and try to figure out why people actually enjoy it. I am trying to enjoy it. That statement changes my perception of Alicia Keys totally."
"But the magazine is standing behind it, which means they probably have a tape of her in conversation saying it. It's just not really a bright comment anyway."
