Ebro and 50 Cent

50 Cent took to Instagram on Friday to call out Hot 97 program director Ebro Darden, after he accused the hip-hop mogul of destroying the New York Rap scene.

On IG, Fif posted a photo of Ebro, along with the caption: "This Guy said I destroyed New York HipHop because I didn't work with New York artist to cover up he was the program director that wouldn't play there records. sMH."

In response, Ebron took to Hot 97 airwaves to explain his position, citing 50 Cent's feud with Ja Rule as the culprit behind the diminishing NY hip-hop scene. "When 50 and Ja didn’t want to work together and people was affiliated on this side and people was on that side, it made other people from other places not also want to do music with those artists," Ebro said, "because they didn’t want no problems."

"He wanted to throw up a conversation on his Instagram about how I said his beef with Ja and that whole thing divided New York in a way that crippled New York forever," he says. "50 and I have had this discussion face-to-face. He don't like it, but then he wants to say I'm covering for the fact that I don't support New York artists. Well, I'm here for the flames."

50 Cent returned with another post after Ebro's show, blaming him and radio, yet again, for NY's downfall.

"I saw your response," 50 Cent writes. "Truth is you wouldn't know a hit,if it hit your ass in the head. Radio is all messed up, New artist have to break on line. I know you can't see it but you don't mean sh*t anymore. Buy the time you support records there already working fool. Name one new Artist or song out of New York you broke.
