Something tells us Kanye West is going to have something to say about this.

50 Cent is blasting the rapper's Yeezus album, saying it just "doesn't feel like hip hop," not long after he dissed Kanye's style earlier this month.

"He's obviously a talent within our culture and is one of the driving forces of it, but some of that sh*t is weird to me," 50 Cent told MTV about West's most recent album. "That last record, to be honest, I'm not playing it right now. I still play 'Flashing Lights,' 'Gold Digger' and that whole ['College Dropout'] project. But some of the new stuff is so creative and feels like he's trying to create a whole new sound. It sounds scrambled."

"Radio is going to play dance music, EDM," 50 went on. "You got a lot of stuff happening in music culture that's influencing a lot of R&B music to that tempo. It doesn't feel like hip hop to me. It feels like a fusion of something else, like a weird combination of dance-music sounds and stuff."

In spite of his own feelings about Yeezus, 50 cent said, "you don't have to agree with everything an artist does," adding, "I don't have a favorite artist, I have a favorite moment from artists. Like with Drake, there's songs he came out with and the timing was perfect for the record."

Just weeks ago, 50 told Power 105.1, "I ain't with it," when he was asked about Kanye's style, adding, "I asked it on a mix tape. N****s wear skinny jeans. I can't fit in...If you Google rapper in a dress, do you know how many will pop? Young Thug is the one that actually said, 'This is a dress'. The other one's will call it a kilt. What about that culture is making you choose to wear it for the evening?"
