Rick Ross Questions Charlamagne Tha God’s “Diabolical Genius” Label for 50 Cent

On a recent episode of The Brilliant Idiots podcast, Charlamagne Tha God hailed 50 Cent as a “diabolical genius” for his business acumen and ability to create drama. He pointed to 50 Cent’s ongoing social media attacks on Diddy and highlighted a recent social media post the G-Unit mogul made in the aftermath of Diddy stepping down as the chairman of Revolt amid the sexual assault allegations recently brought against him.

In the post, 50 Cent wrote: “I’ll buy [Revolt] from you, playboy, for the low because you know Cadillac and AT&T gonna pull out. I’ll give you a few dollars for it now! Sell it to me, then we can be friends.”

Elaborating on why he found this move particularly shrewd, Charlamagne told co-host Andrew Schultz: “I’ma tell you why 50 is literally a diabolical genius […] [He’s] telling people who the sponsors are so if they wanna harass Cadillac and AT&T, that’ll happen […] don’t f*** with Fif.”

Rick Ross, who has a long history of beef with 50 Cent took issue with Charlamagne’s characterization of his rival, arguing that true “diabolical geniuses” are making significant moves in the business world, not just generating headlines through feuds and social media antics.


“Me thinking the way I think of Charlamagne he would know better than that,” Rick Ross said on Instagram Live. “A diabolical genius doesn’t file foreclosure, doesn’t file bankruptcy. A diabolical genius from our next generation of young bosses they buying Delta [Airlines], they buying the Miami Heat, they making big boy moves.”

Rick Ross emphasized that while creating buzz and drama can be entertaining, it doesn’t equate to the level of strategic thinking and financial success that true “diabolical geniuses” exhibit.

“Cracking jokes on somebody don’t make you diabolical,” he continued. “Cause if that’s what made you diabolical I would be diabolical for calling DJ Envy [gibberish]. That shit ain’t diabolical, N**** just having a little fun. Get to the money. Get money make you diabolical, that’s what make you diabolical.”

Ross’s comments come after 50 Cent recently mocked the album sales for his and Meek Mill’s new collaborative album, Too Good To Be True, which sold 31,000 units in its first week.

In a tweet accompanying a short recap of his London tour stop, 50 Cent lightheartedly quipped, “Oh No 31,009 [laughing emoji] you might want to spend some quiet time to strategize and reevaluate.” The video humorously featured an edited version of Rick Ross’ Maybach Music intro, featuring a female voice asking “what is this?” as the album sales figures appear on the screen, followed by the female voice’s laughter.

Meanwhile, Ross already hinted that he and 50 Cent will never settle their differences.
