50cent-1

Rapper/entrepreneur 50 Cent has promised to put an end to French Montana’s career. “I’ll put him completely out of business,” 50 said of Montana. In an interview with Peter Parker, 50 Cent said that French Montana was the “new Ja Rule” for “running his mouth prematurely” and trying to “compete” with him. “He’s really not ready to compete on any level with me,” 50 said. Earlier in his career, 50 had a notable feud with Ja Rule. The dispute seemed to have a negative impact on Ja Rule’s career while actually helping 50 Cent’s career.

Ja Rule Is Going To Prison

ja rule585x320

Multiplatinum-selling rapper Ja Rule is set to go to prison, but he’s leaving fans with an album on the way.

The rapper-actor – whose gravelly voice, thuggish tough talk and duets with R&B divas made him one of rap’s stars in the early 2000s – is set to be sentenced Wednesday to two years in a New York prison.

“My last day out,” he tweeted Tuesday afternoon, adding that he was spending it at the movies with his family.

Ja Rule, 35, pleaded guilty in December to attempted criminal possession of a weapon, resolving a nearly 4-year-old case.

Police said they found a loaded .40-caliber semiautomatic gun in a rear door of his $250,000-plus Maybach sports car, which they’d said they’d stopped for speeding as he left a star-laden concert at Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre on July 22, 2007. Rap superstar Lil Wayne was arrested separately after headlining the same show. He later pleaded guilty to the same charge, spending about eight months in a city jail last year.

“Laws are laws,” Ja Rule said Monday on “Good Day New York,” which airs on New York’s Fox 5 TV station. “There’s nothing I could really do but own up to the situation.”

“You know, I try not to regret anything I do in life, because you go through life and you do things, and you man up to them. You own them,” he added.

Born Jeffrey Atkins, Ja Rule emerged as a hardcore rapper in the late 1990s but then became known for his collaborations with female pop singers, including Jennifer Lopez and Ashanti. He scored a best rap album Grammy Award nomination in 2002 with “Pain Is Love.” He also has appeared in movies, including the 2001 film “The Fast and the Furious” and 2003′s “Scary Movie 3.”


He’s recently been wrapping up a new album, “Pain Is Love 2,” but he told “Good Day New York” he’s also been trying to prepare himself mentally for prison. He lives in Upper Saddle River, N.J., with his wife and three children.

Meanwhile, he also pleaded guilty in a New Jersey federal court in March to failing to pay taxes on more than $3 million in income. He faces up to three years in prison in that case, though his lawyers are expected to try to arrange for his sentences to be served at the same time.

Ja Rule had some previous brushes with the law, including pleading guilty to assault for punching someone at a Toronto nightclub in 2004. He was fined $1,200.

He recently told TMZ.com he plans to keep busy behind bars by writing a book, getting his GED and possibly taking up the guitar.

“I’m gonna try to make good of my time while I’m inside,” he said.

His expected sentence will make him the latest in a long line of rappers to do time. Hip-hop stars including Tupac Shakur, Lil’ Kim, Foxy Brown, Shyne, Mystikal, Gucci Mane and T.I. have been in jail or prison for periods ranging from months to years.

Under state prison policies, Ja Rule might be able to shave up to six months off his sentence by meeting requirements for good behavior and other standards.

50 Cent Leaving Aftermath Records? [Video Included]

Posted: Friday – February 12, 2010

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.

Actor Patrick Swayze Dead At 57; Influenced Hip-Hop

Posted: Thursday – September 17, 2009

Patrick Swayze has died from complications due to advanced pancreatic cancer at the age of 57.

According to his publicist Annett Wolf, the actor died at home with his family by his side. Swayze fought his cancer for 20 months, after being diagnosed with the terminal illness in January of 2008.

Swayze courageously continued to work on his final television series “The Beast,” which he filmed while undergoing chemotherapy treatment.

The actor, who starred in movies such as The Outsiders, Red Dawn and Road House, is also a part of Hip-Hop history.

His last name has become synonymous with “leaving” or to “disappear” [IE: “I am Swayze”], in Hip-Hop slang, coined after his starring role in the movie “Ghost.”

After landing a #1 single with his track “She’s Like the Wind” from the hit soundtrack Dirty Dancing, Swayze wanted to return to recording music and was experimenting with “rap rhythms as an emotional undercurrent for ballads.”

Additionally, Swayze made a cameo appearance as an FBI agent in a video for Ja Rule’s single “Murder Reigns” from Ja Rule’s The Last Temptation album.
