50 Cent is still not happy about losing the Best New Artist award to Evanescence back at the 2004 GRAMMYs.

The "In Da Club" rapper recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame where he delivered an almost 8-minute long speech. 50 was joined by Dr. Dre and Eminem, who also gave a speech about the rapper.

One of the funny moments of 50's speech was when he commented about losing the GRAMMY. "You got the largest debut hip hop album [but] you don’t got no Best New Artist trophy...The Best New Artist, they gave that s*** to Evanescence."

He went on to say, "can you find f****** Evanescence? I ain’t seen Evanescence since that night since that night they gave them the trophy." It's important to note how he was laughing as he said it to clearly indicate it was a joke and nothing malicious.
