50 Cent was a guest on an episode of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live yesterday (June 18). While on the show, 50 Cent participated in a segment titled “Plead The Fifth.” He was asked three questions and was allowed to plead the fifth to one but that was not an issue because he answered all three questions.
In one of three questions, 50 was asked who he thinks is the “most overrated Hip Hop star of all time.” 50 always ready to answer a question had no problem answering.
“Overrated?” 50 said. “Jay Z. He would say he’s overrated. ‘Rather be overrated than underpaid.'”
In his response, 50 Cent is most likely referencing Jay Z’s verse on Kanye West’s “So Appalled.” On the track, Jay says, “I went from the favorite to the most hated, But would you rather be underpaid or overrated?”
