50 Cent last addressed Nick Cannon last month, when he called the entertainer “legendary corny.”

Nick Cannon has an idea for why his beef with Eminem and 50 Cent is currently at a standstill.

During a recent appearance on 99 Jamz’s Afternoon Get Down radio show, Cannon offered an update on his beef with Em and 50. The last person of the two to speak on Cannon was 50, who referred to the entertainer as “legendary corny” during an appearance on The Breakfast Club back in February.

“I don’t know. I feel, like, at this point, we had a lot of fun with it during the last season of Wild ‘n Out, and we get back to it— you know, the jokes ain’t ever gonna stop,” Cannon said. “I’mma match your energy wherever you at. I didn’t start it, he came at me. I just swing heavy.”

From there, Cannon spoke on how people advised him not to respond to Em’s diss at him on Fat Joe’s “Lord Above,” the 2019 track that found the Detroit rapper touching on Cannon’s marriage to Mariah Carey. Em’s feature included the following lines: “I know me and Mariah didn’t end on a high note / But that other dude’s whipped, that pussy got him neutered. Tried to tell him this chick’s a nut job before he got his jewels clipped.”

“That’s the thing. Everybody was saying, ‘You better not say nothing,’ and I’m like, ‘Why not, nobody’s scared of him,'” Cannon said. He also spoke on 50’s involvement, who had previously said he advised Em not to respond to Cannon.

“Even with 50, ain’t nobody scared of 50 either. I’m like, ‘Let’s go!’ You know, I match energy,” Cannon said, before adding: “It might have gotten a little too intense for them. But [Eminem is] still welcome to come on my show whenever he wants to get down.”

Eminem hasn’t offered any recent responses to Cannon, but he has discussed why he did and didn’t like making 8 Mile in a recent interview.
