After Beck won album of the year at the awards ceremony on Sunday, Kanye West claimed that he should have given his gong to Beyoncé and that doesn’t sit well with rapper, 50 Cent.

According to the ‘Window Shopper’ hitmaker, ‘Beck wrote and produced his own hits on Morning Phase while Beyonce needed plenty of help on her self-titled album.

‘[Beck] produced [his]ord, wrote the record – there’s 11 producers on Beyoncé’s album,’ 50 Cent said and added: ‘Kanye being a producer and writer should see that.’

As far as 50 Cent is concerned, he has been forced to lose graciously in the past, like when Evanescence beat him to the best new artist at the Grammys in 2004.

‘I felt I deserved Best New Artist for my first album. It’s the largest debut in rap with 13million records sold. When’s the last time you saw Evanescence?’ he asked rhetorically.

 West has since sheepishly back-pedalled on the incident, insisting he was ‘mis-worded’.

‘When I said ‘respect artistry’, it came off the wrong way, and that was a mis-wording on my part because Beck is one of the most respected artists,’ he said.
