On this week’s “Street Soldiers,” host Lisa Evers discusses the beef between G-Unit and Murder Inc with an exclusive interview with 50 Cent. The show also examines hip-hop rap wars. How does the beef go from being on mixtapes and CDs to violence? Is it the artist or the entourage? What part does the media and mixtapes play in encouraging the beef? Street Soldier’s host, Lisa Evers will play excerpts of her exclusive interview with 50 Cent discussing the beef between the rival camps in Sunday’s show titled, “Rap Wars – On Or Off The Record” which was taped nearly 15 minutes before the shooting at the Jersey City Double Tree Hotel.
Contrary to news reports, Tone Capone, producer of “Street Soldiers,” says “The incident did not happen on September 10th as reported by the media. It happened on Monday, September 8th, less than 15 minutes after our exclusive Street Soldiers interview was taped. “The tunnel from the city to Jersey City is right by Hot 97’s offices and he mentioned that he was heading to the hotel in Jersey City. He just left the station and nearly 15 minutes later it happened.” 50 Cent, G-Unit, and entourage were shot at after pulling into the parking lot of Jersey City’s Doubletree Hotel. Although there have been several violent confrontations between the two camps leading to members of each crew being murdered or seriously injured, it has not yet been determined whether the shooting was related to their bitter rivalry. On the show will be Muhammad El Alba of the Jersey City Police Department, and hip-hop artist Cuban Linx and Triple Seis.
