First, 50 Cent slammed Kanye West's fashion sense. Now, he's revealed he is not a fan of "Yeezus."

"He’s obviously a talent within our culture and is one of the driving forces of it, but some of that shit is weird to me," 50 Cent told MTV, referring to West's most recent album. "That last record, to be honest, I’m not playing it right now. I still play 'Flashing Lights,' 'Gold Digger' and that whole ['College Dropout'] project. But some of the new stuff is so creative and feels like he’s trying to create a whole new sound. It sounds scrambled. ... Radio is going to play dance music, EDM. You got a lot of stuff happening in music culture that’s influencing a lot of R&B music to that tempo. It doesn’t feel like hip hop to me. It feels like a fusion of something else, like a weird combination of dance-music sounds and stuff."

50 Cent continued by saying he understands West's latest direction and "you don’t have to agree with everything an artist does." It appears most did agree, however. "Yeezus" arrived to effusive acclaim and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
