    50 Cent is hurling barbs at some of the biggest names in hip-hop, even as he continues to recruit rappers away from rival rosters. First LL Cool J hopped ship from Def Jam to sign with G-Unit, suggesting that label head honcho Jay-Z was too busy promoting himself to remember his commitment to other artists. Now rapper-turned-preacher-turned-rapper Mase is trying to make the jump from Diddy sideman to G-Unit, and complications with that deal have led to some harsh words from 50 Cent to the Bad Boy boss on a new mixtape.

    "Who shot Biggie Smalls?" raps Fiddy on one of the tracks featured on Hip-Hop Is Dead: G-Unit Radio Part 22. "[If] we don't get them, they gonna kill us all / Man, Puffy knows who hit that n---a man, that's n---a's soft / He's scared them boys from the west side gonna break him off."

    Later in the track, which lifts the instrumental track from Dead Prez's "Hip-Hop," 50 says that he's aware that his verses will likely get him uninvited to Diddy's parties in the Hamptons. "I don't give a f--k," he raps. "I don't wanna hang out with your punk ass, no way." There was once a happier time between the two rapper-moguls, as Diddy credited 50 Cent with setting hip-hop back on track with his debut album, Get Rich or Die Tryin'.

    Diddy hasn't issued a formal -- or lyrical -- response, preferring instead to steal 50's headline-making thunder with his own announcement: He and girlfriend Kim Porter are expecting twins. "Two more Combs," said Diddy. "World, you're in trouble now." Hear that, 50? You're looking outnumbered.
