Everyone knows Queens rapper 50 cent is known to have no holds barred when it comes to speaking his mind on matters. During an interview with Baltimore’s 92Q Jams, the crafty businessman applauded business mogul, P Diddy’s savvy and ability to stay relevant in today’s music scene.
However, he did have some choice words for Puff’s latest track ‘Big Homie’ featuring French Montana and Rick Ross, calling it ‘garbage’. In the interview he went on to elaborate;
“If the guy doesn’t have significant savvy with the actual business or with the actual culture he’ll be out of here,” said 50 Cent when asked about artist expiration dates. “You’ll see Jay around as long as he’s been around. What he’s on like 11 albums? Puff’s still out there. He don’t even need a record. Cause he don’t got one. Like you know Puffy ain’t got no music that you wanna hear. That ‘Big Homie’ shit is garbage. I’mma keep it all the way real with you. Because the guy says ‘Don’t worry about if I write my rhymes, I write checks.’ And then sings to you.”
50 cent also discussed upcoming album Animal Ambition, which he described as being about prosperity. Or more so the follow up, or the second part of his journey following his debut album, Get Rich Or Die Trying. What do you think, is 50 right? Are the streets really not feeling the ‘Big Homie’ record, or is 50 just being salty?
Well we all know that Queens rapper 50 cent has the golden touch when it comes to making money with all his business ventures. However, odds were not in the business man’s favor when his three year court battle with Bradenton earphone manufacturer led to an unfavorable verdict for the kid.
According to sources, the ‘I Get Money’ rapper has been ordered to pay Sleek Audio nearly $4.5 million in attorney fees and $11.7 million in damages in connection with a failed partnership for the company who was originally enlisted to produce 50′s headphones.
Allegedly, 50 AKA Curtis Jackson, stole the designs of Sleek Audio, who he initially requested to do the mock up and conceptualize the look of the headphones. According to court records, Jackson bypassed Sleek, and ended up partnering with a different manufacturer, ultimately using a similar design to Sleek’s original mock up.
Damn 50, tough break. We know you’re good for it though.

Now that a restraining order has been granted to The Game’s ex-fiancee Tiffney Cambridge, details of what allegedly happened the evening of the violent altercation which resulted in Tiffney’s nose being broken are coming to light.
According to TMZ
Tiffney claims Game refused to let her leave … telling the children that if Mommy called police, both Mommy and Daddy would go to jail. He eventually let Tiffney and the kids go, and the next day Tiffney was treated for a broken nose at the hospital.
The court document also mentioned that during the physical altercation the fight got so violent, a table broke, injuring both kids. Tiffney says their 3-year-old daughter yelled for help because her leg was bleeding … and Game got even more enraged when Cambridge went to help her.
This sounds like a real nightmare. Hopefully the two can can come to some middle ground so that they are able to co parent for the sake of the kids!

Model, fashion designer and budding actress, Blessing Patrick, is fast making a place for herself as one of Nollywood’s new talents.
In a recent interview with the actress, she pointed out that despite the fast lane at which the entertainment industry is growing, the challenges faced are majorly with the movie directors.
“One of the challenges was that everybody wants to be an actor or an actress so there are lots of people struggling in the industry. It has to do with knowing someone in there who can make things work for you. It’s quite unlike those days when people went for auditions and got the Jobs.
The major challenge now is that if you are not connected, you will hardly get roles unless you give them what they (directors and producers) want.”
“The directors we have these days are not ready to make and discover stars; all they want is to promote people that are loyal to them.”

Few days ago Nollywood actress and “hot”star Afrocandy took to her social media pages to solicit for funds to enable her pay her daughter’s school fees, she has revealed to Nigerian Tribune her reasons for begging for the funds. Here’s what she said:
“Actually, my daughter got a scholarship from the Ivy League universities that accepted her, but we were preparing, her school mates that were supposed to go to the same school opted out because they said the school is too expensive and didn’t get scholarship. So, because of that, my daughter said she did not want to go there alone because it’s far from where we live and more of a white neighborhood.
That was when it dawned on me.Yes, we opted for one of the schools that also accepted her, but the only thing is I have to foot the bills before I am able to get my money – that’s if I will ever get it.
The whole thing crushed my plans. I know most people will abuse me, but I count on the support from my fans. Lots of them have been calling in, sending messages, telling me they are worried about my situation. Even though some of them cannot afford to help me, it brings tears to my eyes to see that I’m still loved by so many.
That means the world to me. Some of them have even been sending in money through Paypal and bank account. Is that not something? So, I don’t bother about the people laughing at me.”
