Rick Ross has offered to purchase 50 Cent’s G-Unit Records catalog for $2 million, as the pair continue to wage war in their ongoing feud.

Earlier this week, the Miami native took to his Instagram account and publicly made his bid to Fif and explained the rationale behind his “more than fair” offer. Ross, who says former G-Unit member Young Buck’s catalog has an estimated valuation of $725,000, also named Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo as artists whose publishing rights he’d purchase.

While the MMG leader said Lloyd Banks and Young Buck’s work with G-Unit are likely of similar value, he insinuated he doesn’t feel the same about Tony Yayo’s in the breakdown of his offer. “I can only assume that Lloyd Banks’ is worth about the same,” the 47-year-old said. “So I say let’s make it and keep it simple: throw Tony Yayo in there, I can give you $1.5 [million].”

Ross also declared his willingness to purchase the master recordings of G-Unit’s 2003 album Beg for Mercy, bringing his final offer to several figures. “So that’s $2 million dollars,” the hitmaker concluded. “I’m making a business offer to the diabolical genius.”

The pair’s latest back-and-forth comes amid comments made by Fif regarding Ross’ controversial lyrics on his 2013 single “U.O.E.N.O.” The Queens, N.Y. native argued that the song’s lyrics—which have been perceived to condone date rape—were inappropriate enough to warrant Ross losing various partnerships, as has been the case with Sean “Diddy” Combs in light of multiple sexual assault allegations.

Combs—whose friendship and working relationship with Rozay is well-documented—has also garnered criticism from 50. The rapper has continuously taunted Diddy amid his alleged connection to Tupac Shakur murder suspect Keefe D and the ongoing controversy surrounding him.
