A number of rappers mentioned on the song responded on record. The comments made towards the Wu-Tang Clan were responded to on the Ghostface Killah album Supreme Clientele on a skit called "Clyde Smith".
Jay Z also reacted to the comments in the track called It's Hot (Some Like It Hot), off the album Vol. 3: Life and Times of S. Carter: "Go against Jigga yo' ass is dense
I'm about a dollar, what the fuck is 50 Cents?"
In an interview, however, 50 Cent claims that Jay-Z told him he loved the song, and that Jay asked permission to respond before he did.
Sticky Fingaz responded to the diss with the track "Jackin' for Beats."
Big Pun responds to this track in the song "My Turn" from his 2000 album Yeeeah Baby, which was released posthumously. In the song, he states: “And to the 50 Cent Rapper, very funny -- get your nut off, 'cuz in real life, we all know I'd blow your m*therfucking head off...If I'm gonna write a song, it'll be about how I had to beat your m*thafuckin' ass. And that'll be the name of the m*therfucker: 'That's Why I Had To Beat Your M*therfucking Ass', featuring Tony Sunshine.”
Kurupt also responded to the track with "Callin Out Names":
“Now it's 50 mc's that ain't worth shit
Get ya ass kicked 50 times, beat to 10 cent"
Missy Elliott however responded in a humorous way, in the liner notes for her 2002 album Under Construction, on which 50 Cent appears: “I don't know you that well except when you told me to put them hot dogs down (haha). I got on the treadmill for you baby. Thanks for the remix! Love ya!”
