50 Cent Says He Retired Jay-Z During His Prime Years

50 Cent says he was the reason why Jay-Z threw in the towel from 2003-2006 and he says the numbers don’t lie.

50 Cent was speaking during his appearance on Sirius XM’s Town Hall event earlier this week when he made the comments.

This is what 50 Cent said:

“Where was Jay Z from 2003 to 2006?” 50 Cent questioned. “I sold 23 million records from 2003 to 2006. He stopped making music. He said ‘I quit. We’ll get back to what we got later. I quit. Timeout. I’ll come back to play later.’ When he signed that Beyonce contract he was like ‘men lie, women lie, numbers don’t.”

50 Cent also said that he was the reason why Jay-Z did the mega hit single “Big Pimpin” with UGK back in 2000 around the time he got shot.

The full interview with Sirius XM will debut on March 31st on the station’s website.
