Rock Group Nice Peter Explains Song '50 Cent Is A Pussy'

 As the feuds in Hip-Hop seem to be at an all-time high, rock band Nice Peter is currently raising eyebrows because of choice words aimed at superstar rapper 50 Cent in their new song, “50 Cent is a Pussyy.”

In the lighthearted single, the rock band takes jabs at 50 Cent with lyrics like, “Straight from the streets to the limousine, started off with just his bullet holes and a big dream/ hooked up with Eminem and Dr. Dre, now he’s gotta his own fucking video game. Yeah, bitchh what, I’m calling you out/ you’re about as gangster as the chick from No Doubt.”

Consisting of lead singer and acoustic guitarist Pete Shukoff and drummer Kristen Regester, the two-piece band from Chicago insists that their new song shouldn’t be taken too seriously.

“The point of the song was just that, I think I was listening to an interview about him and he had just come out with a CD, a movie and a video game all at the same time,” Shukoff said in an exclusive interview. “I think the thing that bothers me about 50 Cent is that I don’t think he is necessarily a positive image...[but] it’s a funny line between being serious and not being serious. ”

Ironically, Nice Peter is taking the same marketing approach that 50 Cent used for his debut album Power of the Dollar, which featured the funny, but abrasive single "How To Rob."

50 Cent's song, which was intended to be a lighthearted record, focused on stealing jewelry and money from various rappers and celebrities.

As a group, Nice Peter has toured internationally, performing various commentary songs with titles like "The Bush Song," "Fuck Guitar Center," "Cell Phones," "Spanglish" and "Tru Gangster."

“We try and poke fun of things and maybe say some things and have some opinions,” Shukoff said. “I mean what I say in the song, but I don’t necessarily think 50 Cent is a pussy. I think if I met up with him in a bar, he’d take me out pretty quickly.”

Shukoff, 27, was trained at the famed Improv Olympic (iO) in Chicago. iO alumni include Mike Myers, Chris Farley, Vince Vaughn, Andy Dick and other famous comedians.

He said the feedback the group has received from "50 Cent is a Pussy" has been positive.

Nice Peter is currently working on a yet untitled LP, which is scheduled to hit store sometime next year.
