Bret Hartman/CBSPeople are still buzzing about Kanye West‘s reaction to Beck beating out Beyonce for Album of the Year during Sunday’s Grammy Awards. Now, 50 Cent has weighed in.
The rapper explained why Beck, not Beyonce, was more worthy of the coveted trophy. “He produced the record, wrote the record,” 50 Cent says of the alternative rocker in an interview with People. “There’s 11 producers on Beyonce’s album. Kanye being a producer and a writer should see that. But we get jaded.”
50’s stance comes on the heels of Kanye’s friend, John Legend, expressing a similar sentiment. “Beck is indeed a true artist’s artist. He’s a multi-instrumentalist, a creative and unique singer-songwriter whose music I have bought and enjoyed over the years,” Legend writes on Instagram. “While his win may have been a surprise to many, it’s not because he’s not a great artist deserving of recognition. All of the other nominated artists, including Beyonce, are incredible in their own right, and arguments could be made for any of them deserving to win.”
