The Queen rapper is the subject of a new series of meme-inspired murals.
50 Cent appears to be feuding with an Australian street artist who took unexpected (and seemingly unwelcomed) inspiration from the rapper.
Taking to Instagram this week, the rapper aired out his frustration with the artist Lushsux and their new series of meme-inspired murals, each of which distorts the rapper’s face by removing a feature (hat brim, teeth) or stitching it onto the head of another celebrity (or dictator.) So far, the series includes pieces dubbed “Swifty Cent,” “The 40 Fif President,” and “Curtis Malone,” amongst others.
And though it’s unclear whether 50’s actually flattered by the artist’s sentiment (after showcasing the pieces across his own page,) the series has gained a fan in at least one Queens rapper. “[You’re] my new favorite artist,” wrote Ja Rule in a screen-captured message to the artist.
Scroll through the full series below along with 50 Cent’s responses. Head over to Lushsux’s Instagram account for all the memes, murals, and crossovers, you can bear.
