50 Cent aka Slim Fast, Drops 54 Pounds:  “I Was Starving”

50 Cent always finds a way to shock and awe. Most of the time it’s what comes out of his mouth that’s causing a ruckus. This afternoon, it was what his mouth looked like; more precisely - his entire mug.

The picture up top was posted on thisis50.com. He looks like he hasn’t had a meal in weeks. Considering the picture was taken in a kitchen, you’d think somebody would have tossed him a chicken leg, a plate of spaghetti, “Can a brother get a biscuit?”

50 Cent’s War Angel and Forever King: He’s Back!

Last month, 50 Cent was at Avenue in NY to debut his new fragrance “Power by 50 Cent.” Videogames, movies, vitamin enriched waters, clothing, it was the kind of brand extension gig I’ve come to expect from him. Unexpectedly, he has also restored my faith in hip-hop - at minimum it’s new music I can listen to in a loop. With Jay-Z’s “D.O.A.” leading the fight against the candy ass, mindless, meaningless, and downright fraudulent place hip-hop has been stuck in for a good minute, 50 Cent’s latest ‘free’ mixtapes War Angel and Forever King continue to speak on the subject.. Man, I can’t fit in with these n*ggas, man. N*ggas got mohawks.. and wearing skinny jeans, man. I think these n*ggas is..” You know the rest.

50 Cent to Donald Trump: He’s Crazy + “Get Up” Video(!)

Donald Trump is not a fan of 50 Cent’s new MTV show The Money and the Power”. In an interview with NY1, Donald Trump gave this quick analysis: “It was a copy of The Apprentice. It will fail because he’s not Trump.” Hey, I’m surprised Trump watched the show to even have an opinion. Did you? I’m going to suffer through the first episode tonight - “Choose Your Crew Wisely”

Of course, 50 Cent wasn’t going to take the Don’s criticism without a response..

50 Cent Speaks on Shaniqua Tompkins’ Bag Habit and Young Buck’s Bad Habits

Yesterday, 50 Cent was in Canada flossing a Colgate smile for MuchOnDemand. It’s not a GQ look he’s going for. In an interview filmed in a hotel room, earlier that day. 50 explained the clean look.. “I had to cut my hair, my facial hair for the last couple scenes in the movie [Microwave Park] I’m doing with Val Kilmer and Sharon stone. I be feeling like I’m ten when I ain’t got no facial hair.”

Right after 50 said that, he paused and stumbled, “I don’t know what else to say.” But have you ever known 50 to have nibblets on his tongue?

Young Buck Gives 50 Cent a Call: I Know I Got Out of Line

If you’ve been keeping up with rap beefs, you know Young Buck has been going at 50 Cent.
Well now 50 has fired back, by releasing audio of Young Buck asking back into G-Unit - at the least a little money for back taxes he owes to the IRS.

Ask is probably the kind, word. What starts out as a simple explanation/I’m so very sorry for the misunderstandings and slick talk, turns into a lil breakdown.
Young Buck starts talking about the money he owes and not being able to get shows to pay it off.. and then a *sniff*.. a word.. and another *weird sniff.*

50 Cent and G-Unit Get Stuck in an Elevator - Uh, Ok

50 Cent recently toured Africa, where he had the chance to meet Nelson Mandela’s grandson, gave out $20 bills to a mob of kids, and what was labeled by MTV as the ‘highlight’ of the trip.. got stuck in an elevator.

50 Cent explaining how he got stuck in an elevator

Honestly I would have never had posted this, but the fear and seriousness on 50’s face, as he talks about something as simple as being trapped in an elevator, elevates it to sad comedy.

50 Cent Shoots Back at Alicia Keys: I Don’t Like You No More!

In a wide-ranging interview on rhapsody.com, 50 Cent was asked what he thought of Alicia Key’s comments about gangsta rap. Leave it to 50 to make it about himself..

What did you think of Alicia Keys’ comments regarding gangsta rap in Blender?
50 Cent:“I don’t like Alicia Keys no more.”

She clarified the comments, though.
50 Cent:“If she thinks what they consider to be gangsta music is made to bring black people down then I think my shit falls into that category. I don’t like people who don’t like me. I don’t like her then because that’s what provides the life for me… “
