50 Cent has vowed to stop feuding following the tragic death of Kobe Bryant.

The 44-year-old rapper, real name Curtis James Jackson III, took to social media Monday after Kobe died age 41 in a helicopter crash Sunday along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others.

He posted: ‘i feel like i have to achieve what i want in life now after this. i have to focus, i’m not arguing with anyone anymore I’ll deal with it another way if there’s a problem.’

New approach: 50 Cent, shown last week in Miami Beach, Florida, has vowed to end his feuding following the tragic death of Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant

The Power star included a short video clip of him and Kobe embracing on court during a January 2014 game between the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

Extra host Billy Bush, 48, spoke with 50 on Wednesday about his tribute to Kobe. 

‘I’m just not going to argue with people anymore. …Those arguments were part of the competitive nature of hip-hop culture, just being competitive we would go back and say things back and forth,’ 50 said.

He added: ‘I’m just not going to argue. …I got a new way to respond, I’m like, ”Brother, why is my inner peace interrupting your demons?”’

The rapper also recalled his encounters with Kobe while reflecting on the photo with Lakers star in New York City.

‘I met him a few times, that was in Madison Square Garden. I was sitting right next to Meryl Streep. He came across, said, ”What’s up?” and said, ”Come back after, like at halftime”.’

He added: ‘It was Meryl’s first game. …I was like, ”You want to come back?” Took her with me.’

The G Unit star described Kobe as, ‘The nicest guy. …His aura was really bright.’

50 notoriously took to Instagram in April 2019 to detail a $1 million dispute with producer Randall Emmett, 48, that escalated to an online feud with Randall’s girlfriend Lala Kent, 30.

The rapper made Randall a viral laughing stock after he shared grabs of messages between the two where the producer told 50 that he was having a health crisis and headed to an emergency room, adding, ‘I’m sorry fofty.’

50 also has a long-running feud with talk show host Wendy Williams, 55, that has been going on for years.
