50 Cent Threatens to Hire Shooters on Rick Ross

Posted: November 30, 2009

As Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson lets the gas tank leak and adds fuel to the fire with Beanie Sigel and Jay-Z, the rapper also has to fight his own battles as his issues with Rick Ross and Triple Cs are far from being a memory.

Recently, Rick Ross spoke on the sales of 50 Cent’s latest offering, Before I Self Destruct, which sold close to 160,000 copies in its first week. After viewing what appear to be disappointing numbers for an artist with such a caliber as 50, Ross proclaimed that he was able to bury the G-Unit general.

Never willing to let any punch slip through, Jackson revealed news through an interview with DJ Whoo Kid about how Ross tried to take a play from his book when he contacted Tia and tried to find a means to get at 50′s baby’s mother.

“They actually, indirectly, tried to contact my son’s mom. They would have only shown up somewhere for me to have them shot at that point.”

The rapper continued to flex his muscle by stating that the rap game doesn’t take away from his past and the fact that he could quickly slip back into the mentality that raised him when he was without a deal and did not have the fame and fortune that he rests on now.

“Then we gonna stop rappin and start doing the shit. If they think that ain’t real, then they should try it. That’s just that. I tell them, constantly, don’t expect me not to go where I come from. That’s gonna be nice and comfy for me so you gonna have to figure out how to adjust your shit. My car is already bulletproof. Everything is already in order for that.”

He also added that with all of the heat coming his way, he finds it interesting how everyone is fully aware of where he rests his head at, but nobody bothers to come knock at the door and come in.

“While we getting ready to go through those circumstances, and I don’t live in Connecticut, that’s just the house, and that one got motion sensors and cameras all kind of sh*t, so go ahead. Why everybody got my address and ain’t nobody stopping by? Get busy then. I done said everything that I can think of.”

Referring to himself as a Hip Hop president, Jackson stated that there are consequences for all actions and that every shot fired will be fired back.

“I’m like Obama. The president gotta kiss hands and shake babies. You can kill the president. It’s hard to get away with it. So I use my resources. I ain’t even worried about it, it’s too late for that.”

As the page turns, the story only gets better between 50 Cent and all of his enemies in the rap world. Hopefully things can remain on wax and the chapters will only be told through a story and not spill out onto the streets.



50 Cent Settles Out Of Court With Taco Bell

Posted: Tuesday – November 24, 2009

50 Cent has settled his legal battle with fast food chain Taco Bell after accusing the company of using his name in an advertising campaign without his permission.

The In Da Club hit-maker, real name Curtis Jackson, filed suit against company bosses in July, 2008, alleging the promo was “diluting the value of his good name” by using it in conjunction with their 79-89-99 Cent Why Pay More campaign. He claimed the ad campaign suggested he was endorsing the franchise. Taco Bell executives even offered to make a $10,000 donation to a charity of 50 Cent’s choice if he agreed to change his name for one day.

In an open letter published a month before 50 Cent took Taco Bell to court, bosses stipulated he must visit one of the chain’s restaurants and rap his order at the drive-thru window – using a new moniker: 79 Cent, 89 Cent or 99 Cent.

Nevertheless, 50 Cent was not amused by the marketing ploy and took legal action against Taco Bell, seeking $1 million in damages.

However, the dispute has now been settled out of court, according to Bloomberg.

Results of the financial deal remain confidential, but the rapper’s lawyer, Peter Raymond, declared on Monday that “both parties are satisfied” with the outcome.

Yesterday (November 2), rapper Rick Ross released a remixed version of 50 Cent’s Baby By Me song featuring Ne-Yo. On the song, Ross alludes to the fire that burned down 50 Cent’s baby mama’s house rapping, “Have a baby by me baby, the realest n*gga ’round. He’ll huff and puff and burn your house down.”

The verse continues with Ross saying, “I ball like Lebron James, I’m Dwayne Wade laughing in my driveway, funny everybody paid/ Standing tall, we in the club it’s like we on that. I catch your homie slippin’, I hope they know I’m on that/ Teflon Don, baby, Al Capone back, Boss/ John Gotti poppin’ Prozac. I’m a fly n*gga, I’m a Guy Fischer. This is for my hungry n*ggas/ But now we eat a lot/ Once Again, GGG-G-Unot!”

The release of Ross’ remix to Baby By Me coincides with the unveiling of the video for the official version of the song, and comes days after, 50 Cent took several shots at Rick Ross’ group, Triple C’s. 50 called the rap group, Triple Cheese and asserted that the only way they would sell over 10,000 copies is if they purchased some albums themselves.

50 Cent, Fab Vs. T-Pain, Lil Wayne, Speech DeBelle

Posted: Wednesday – September 9, 2009

Rapper 50 Cent has set off speculation that a name change could be coming after the release of his fourth major album, Before I Self Destruct. 50 sent a cryptic message on his Twitter.com page, stating “50 Cent is a person I created, soon it will be time to destroy him and become somebody else.” 50 Cent took his name from Kelvin “50 Cent” Martin, a notorious “stick-up kid” who hailed from Brooklyn, New York and was the subject of the documentary Infamous Times: The Original 50 Cent. In related news, 50 Cent’s book The 50th Law with author Robert Greene, landed in stores yesterday (September 8).

Fabolous recently took to Twitter.com, where he fired off a series of Tweets attacking superstar producer T-Pain. Fabolous mistakenly replied to a Tweet sent from a phony T-Pain Twitter account that stated “f**k Jay-Z and Fabolous too.” In addition to defending his own honor, Fabolous took up for fellow Brooklynite Jay-Z, who was dissed by T-Pain just days earlier in Las Vegas. Yesterday, a trending topic on the site was the “hash tag” “#tpainbetter.” That was followed by a number of insults, including #tpain better not meet me in Brooklyn” and..#tpainbetter audition to be a California Raisin….“He’s done. stop singin in the fan… that aint talent we can all do that.” When Fabolous found out the Tweet was from a fake account he stated: “thats jus a taste of what u’ll get if u f**k wit me via twitter, Back to my Twitter chillin.” T-Pain has yet to respond to Fabolous’ rant.

Lil’ Wayne’s 2008-2009 North American tour schedule grossed over $42 million dollars, making it the most lucrative Hip-Hop tour ever tracked by industry trade magazine, Billboard. Lil Wayne headlined 78 arena’s or amphitheater concerts from December 2008 to September 2009, drawing over 804,000 fans. Wayne’s $42 million topped Jay-Z’s 2008 tour with Mary J. Blige, which raked in $34.6 million off of 28 shows.

Rapper Speech DeBelle beat out 11 acts to win the esteemed Mercury Prize for her album Speech Therapy. The rapper, who hails from south London, won the Mercury Prize for releasing what critics felt was the best album in the past year. In addition to added exposure as a new artist, Speech DeBelle won £20,000. “I feel so good. It feels better than I imagined. My family’s here. My friends are here. I’m from south London – I don’t get emotional – I’m emotional. This proves if you believe in something and you think you can do it, you can achieve it,” Speech DeBelle said.
