50 Cent starts petition against Diddy

Ah, rapper beefs. When’s the last time we had a really good one of those? Eminem vs. Nick Cannon doesn’t count, and neither does 50 Cent vs. Kanye. Maybe it was 50 Cent vs. Ja Rule. Man, 50 Cent picks a lot of fights, doesn’t he? But who doesn’t miss the gangsta era just a little bit, honestly?

50 Cent has started a little something with a survivor of that era, the ex-Biggie sidekick formerly known as Puffy. And as usual in 2010, the beef has been launched through Twitter. According to HipHopDX, 50 has begun a petition blasting the Bad Boy CEO over exploiting his fallen friend The Notorious B.I.G. The full text reads:

Enough is enough, Biggie’s name should never have become Diddy’s Black Card. Just check out his latest video “The Ghost of Christopher Wallace” http://www.bit.ly/jay-diddy Let Diddy know to let B.I.G. rest in peace. When was the last time Diddy really was “biggin up his brother,” not biggin up his bank?

The petition is called “R.I.P. Biggie – Stop @iamDiddy” and has garnered 1,204 signatures so far. If that doesn’t seem like a lot, it’s probably because people figured out by 1999 that Diddy was going to milk this for all it was worth. Where’s the petition to stop releasing bastardized versions of 2Pac recordings?

In case you’re curious, Jay Electronica’s song “The Ghost of Christopher Wallace” is streaming below.
