2. The underdog mentality 50 Cent will have now as a result of the beef will be reflected in the music he makes from here on out.
Like we said in Reason #1, we don't ever expect to see the 2002 version of 50 Cent again. It's just not possible. But we love to hear 50 Cent go in on a street record and, unfortunately, he doesn't do it often enough. In an underdog role, though, you can expect Fif to make plenty of street records that don't cater to the mainstream audience that Interscope wants him to cater to. And even if it only lasts for awhile, it'll be good to hear 50 making the kinds of records that he wants to make again without worrying about what his label thinks.

3. The rift gives 50 Cent the perfect opportunity to release a mixtape.
Know what we haven't heard in awhile? A 50 Cent mixtape. And it's a shame, too, because he basically invented the modern-day mixtape scene. That said, now would be the perfect time for him to hit the studio and crank out a new 'tape alongside his G-Unit cronies Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo. What better way to get back at your label than to release an album full of free music, Fif? The clock is ticking, though, so we'd advise you to get started ASAP.

4. Whether it is or not, this feels like a real beef, and 50 Cent does his best work when he's involved in a war of words with someone.
50 Cent has strived off beef ever since he released his "How To Rob" record. Talking about other artists and doing battle with them on records and through the press has helped 50 throughout his career. But a lot of the beefs he's been involved in recently just don't feel like beefs. They feel like 50 hating on artists who are doing better than him. His beef with Interscope feels like it's real and makes it feel like the label is really messing around with his livelihood, which should force 50 to call their bluff and take them to task for not promoting him properly. If he uses that to his advantage, this could be his biggest beef yet.

5. If nothing else, this beef will get 50 Cent's face plastered across the front of a bunch of magazines.
Much like his former G-Unit comrade Game, 50 Cent is the master of the publicity stunt. So even if this beef with Interscope doesn't help his career in any of the other ways we've mentioned, we fully expect him to let it play out in the press by doing interviews and hopping on the front of magazine covers in order to let the world know why he feels he's being mistreated. It's a smart move on 50's part and a great way to keep people talking about him. And when it inevitably happens, we're sure Interscope will be more than willing to be more supportive of his next album. Once again, everyone wins when 50 Cent beefs. So, should we really be all that surprised to see him doing it again?
