Recently released rapper Shyne is continuing his attack on 50 Cent and G-Unit with his latest track, There Will Be Blood. The song comes less than a week after the Belizean-bred rapper released a freestyle over Alicia Keys’ single Unthinkable on which he dedicated a one line diss to Fif, and finds him insinuating that 50 works with the feds and referring to G-Unit members as “chipmunks.”
“The champ is here and not a minute too quickly, like Mike, I’m back to the city to drop 50. Upon my return, I empty the cartridge, got fat while I was gone, now I’ma send you where God is,” raps Shyne. “Ah-hem, let me clear my throat — when you talk to the Feds, spell my name with a ‘y’/I hate rats and chumps, you guys ain’t gorillas, you’re fucking chipmunks/FYI, I’m the king of the jungle.”
The beef, which started more than six years ago, is reportedly a result of a failed business deal between the two. While Shyne was incarcerated, Fif was trying to recruit him into G-Unit, but Shyne instead chose to establish his own label under the Def Jam Island Records label. Shortly afterwards, 50 started sending shots Shyne’s way during interviews and most notably during a freestyle on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 radio show. Shyne responded via the track For The Record, which was featured on his Godfather Buried Alive album, and Fif subsequently released Piggy Bank.
The war between the two had died down until recently, when Shyne began releasing freestyles. 50 has yet to respond.
Canadian pop idol Justin Bieber debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. pop album chart Wednesday, becoming the youngest solo male artist to achieve this feat since Stevie Wonder in 1963.
Bieber, 16, sold 283,000 copies of his second album “My World 2.0″ during the week ended March 28, according to tracking firm Nielsen SoundScan. Wonder, 13 at the time, spent one week at No. 1 with “Little Stevie Wonder/The 12 Year Old Genius.” As the title suggests, he recorded it when he was 12.
Bieber’s first set, “My World,” jumped five places to a new high of No. 5 with 50,000 copies. The album debuted at No. 6 last November, and has sold 1.1 million copies to date.
Rapper 50 Cent was the last artist to place two albums in the top five that weren’t concurrently released. In April 2003, he debuted at No. 2 with the CD/DVD combo “The New Breed” and was at No. 5 with “Get Rich Or Die Tryin.’”
Bieber’s new album also debuted at No. 1 in Canada.
Monica debuted at No. 2 on the current U.S. chart after “Still Standing” sold 184,000 copies. It’s the R&B singer’s second-highest sales week and charting album, surpassed only by the 186,000-unit start for her chart-topping 2003 effort “After the Storm.”
The continuing saga of the “Now That’s What I Call Music!” series extended its Billboard 200 chart dominance as the 33rd volume arrived at No. 3 with 135,000. The 21-track collection features Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles like Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok” and Owl City’s “Fireflies.” With the “Now” franchise’s latest spin-off, the Christian-leaning “Now That’s What I Call Faith” debuting at No. 143, the “Now” brand has racked up an impressive 56 charting albums since it launched in 1998.
The final new arrival in the top 10 belonged to She & Him with its second album, fittingly titled “Volume Two.” It started at No. 6 with 47,000. That trumps the peak and best sales week of the duo’s first set, “Volume One,” which topped out at No. 71. (Its best sales frame — 10,000 — came a week earlier when it debuted on the list at No. 81.)
Last week’s No. 1, Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now,” slipped to No. 4 with 78,000, while Ludacris’ “Battle of the Sexes” fell four to No. 7 with 45,000, two weeks after it debuted at No. 1. Lady Gaga’s “The Fame” fell three to No. 8 with 41,000, Marvin Sapp’s “Here I Am” slid seven to No. 9 with 39,000, and the Black Eyed Peas’ “The E.N.D.” was off two to No. 10 with 34,000.
Overall album sales totaled 6.03 million units, up 6.5% compared to the previous week, and down 11% compared to the comparable sales week of 2009. Year-to-date album sales stand at 75.1 million, down 8% compared to the same total at this point last year (81.9 million).
As the rap career of Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson continues to slowly fizzle into obscurity, the rapper continues to leave his footprints in the movie industry as he is making the transition into also becoming an actor.
Alongside Randall Emmett, Jackson has begun work on his next film, titled “Things Fall Apart”, which was produced and stars the rapper/actor.
The script was penned by 50 and Brian Miller and will be directed by Mario Van Peebles.
Unlike the films “Before I Self Destruct”, “Get Rich Or Die Tryin” or most other films associated with Jackson, this one won’t provide as much focus on the aspect of violence as Jackson will star as a football running back.
Known for his own personal tragedies in life, 50′s character will face his trials in life during his senior year in college.
Under his Cheetah Vision Films banner, the film is set to have production handled under the imprint. Cheetah Vision recently wrapped up “The Gun” which stars Jackson and Val Kilmer.
Clearly becoming more enthusiastic about making film, Jackson spoke with Daily Variety on the process in comparison to making a record.
“You have 90 minutes and 120 pages, compared with three minutes for a song,” Jackson noted. “I’ve become very passionate about making films.”
With films such as “Righteous Kill” and “Home Of The Brave” under his belt in supporting roles and upcoming roles in “Twelve” and “Jekyll and Hyde”, Jackson is surely inching his way out of music and submerging himself behind the silver screen.
As it was reported earlier, rapper Game made the announcement that everything had truly come full circle as he was now rolling with Dr. Dre once again and joined the team of Aftermath Records once again.
Apparently, there are rumors swirling that Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson isn’t sitting too well with having his enemy on the same label as him and has stated that he will not stay on the label now that the West Coast rapper is back.
It’s even been taken as far as saying that he won’t even work with Dre while Game is signed back to the team.
Now, for the record, 50 hasn’t seemed to be in a pleasant relationship with the producer for some time as the years have progressed. On Before I Self Destruct, the rapper pointed out the fact that Dre didn’t do anything when Game betrayed G-Unit on “So Disrespectful”.
It can also be noted that Dre started working with Ashanti, which was once his enemy due to her allegiance with Ja Rule.
Adding more politics, Jackson had already made the statement that he was ready to leave Interscope due to the shady business that he’s had to deal with during his music career. Yayo made that statement that himself and Banks were now free agents, so why not just round it out and lead the G-Unit movement on an independent route?
It seems that may have been true in his sentiments off of his last album because it seems now like the walls are caving in from all sides with no way out. There is, however, nothing wrong with going back to step 1 and starting from scratch.
It’s funny how perception does a full tailspin as a person becomes progressively famous. As an artist continues to get the embrace of the mainstream, especially those in Hip Hop , questions begin to arise as to how they were able to claim that success and there is even speculation that is business being dealt with evils.
Since “D’Evils,” Jay-Z has been heavily scrutinized by many that feel as though he looks at himself as God and as a member of a secret society that is trying to usher in a new world order.
Churches have been the venue for preachers to find “hidden message” within his music such as “Luficer” where he allegedly proclaims, ‘Murder, murder, Jesus, Jesus.
The most recent attack is from a young youth pastor that made the claim that “Empire State of Mind” was telling people that they cannot depend on Jesus to save them.
Even the visual for “Run This Town” was interpreted by some as his imagery for the world once a new order is finally established, if it’s not already in the process.
50 Cent recently spoke with Rolling Stone and made the statement that Jay-Z only looks for his own best interests and has a mentality as though he’s above everyone else.
“He has a king complex, he thinks he’s fucking Jesus, you know what I mean? This J-Hova shit.”
Usually known for his subliminal shots instead of attacking a problem head on, the rapper has finally taken the direct approach to the latest to make the statement that he goes against God.
Back in 2006, hoping to finally dead the allegation, the rapper conducted an interview with radio host Egypt on New York’s Power 105.1 to address the allegations that have been made against him.
At the time, a man known as Craig Lewis of EX Ministries developed a DVD titled, The Truth Behind Hip Hop, labeling Jay as a culprit in working with the devil.
“He should be arrested, seriously. My position is not unlike anyone else who ascends to the top of their field. That comes with the game. But that’s crazy. That might be the craziest one I’ve had.”
Although not a man to find his way into the church to praise, he adds that he still maintains a relationship with God no matter what his particular opinion is on religion.
“Nah, I’m more spiritual that [having] organized religion. I have a personal relationship with God…I believe in karma, I believe in cause and effect…but religion, I have my opinions about religion.”
From throwing up the diamond signs, “symbolizing” pyramids to secret handshakes between himself and Nas to rumors of him being a Freemason, the rapper has been the poster child to what some would perceive as being a hidden evil consuming the Hip Hop world.
People feeling that he has the ability to fire Charlamagne Tha God and keep Chris Brown from performing are all indications of the fact that some look at Hov as having the power to have complete control over what goes on in music.
Jay-Z doesn’t stand alone as being under fire of devil worship as rappers such as Snoop Dogg, Bone Thugs and DMX have allegedly negotiated with the force of darkness in order to make it in the music world.
Religion, an aspect of life meant to instill some sense of hope and a desire for a better life has been heavily misconstrued as time had progressed. How can a person find belief in something when others are so quick to shun the idea of individual beliefs and opinions?
Condemning an artist’s success to embracing evil is what causes such a separation throughout the country and the world.
Lack of understanding and an unwillingness to comprehend difference is a weak trait to have an feed to others
