For the most part, following his same-sex relationship admission, Frank Ocean has received nothing but love from those in the music industry.
But to the occasional hater or misguided critic, such as Lil Scrappy, 50 Cent has a message: You’re a complete moron!
“Anyone that has an issue with Frank Ocean is an idiot,” 50 Cent tells MTV UK. “I think Frank Ocean is a talented artist, I think he’s created material that made me know his name, that impressed me, with things he said on a song like ‘Novacane.’”
Fiddy does believe Ocean came out with this information for “marketing” purposes, but heMore >

If you had said in the 1980’s that the hip hop genre would produce some of the richest recording artists and producers in the world then you would have been laughed at. Back then, the genre was seen as an outlet for the lower income groups and minorities to express themselves. Today, however, this genre has grown by leaps and bounds and its influence can be seen not only in the music industry but in fashion, games and has spurned a few reality television shows.
People admire them and many of us would like to be them, the successful hip hop artists of today rake in millions in record sales,More >
Unhappy with the way Interscope Records has been handling his new album, 50 Cent has canceled the upcoming release, claiming execs “dropped the ball.”
“Man I’m not releasing a album,” 50 wrote on his Twitter page Wednesday. “I can’t believe interscope is this f–ked up right now. I apologize to all my fans.”
He proceeded to elaborate on his future, with or without the label.
“I will work with other artist on there projects but I will not put out another album,” he said. “They dropped the ball with me one time to many.”
50 Tweeted that he instead would put out “Psycho,” the latest single byMore >
NBC recently brought Chris Brown on its “Today” show, which attracted a record crowd of 18,000 people. The free show’s immense success upset FOX News and it criticized NBC for featuring Brown and highlighted 2009’s ‘Rihanna’ incident to hurl some dirt over the R&B superstar.
This fresh attempt to tarnish Breezy’s image hasn’t gone down well with 50 Cent, who has now come to his friend’s verbal rescue.
The outspoken rapper logged in on his Twitter account yesterday and wrote: “I just saw a clip on FOX news Hating on NBC for having chris brown on unbelievable. I’m never watching that again. HeMore >
Once considered a major hip-hop artist for Jay-Z and Damon Dash’s Roc-A-Fella Records, things went from bad to worse for Beanie Sigel when the label founders went their separate ways, leaving Beans in no man’s land.
There was no joy for the Philly-born rapper in his personal life either, as shortly after the Roc-A-Fella split in 2004, he was found guilty of federal weapons charges and jailed for a year. Upon his release, G-Unit Records founder 50 Cent offered him a deal with his company and all Sigel needed to get his career back on track was for Jay-Z to release him from his Def JamMore >
While Game’s ‘The R.E.D. Album’ was being considered a major thing itself, the attachment of Dr. Dre’s name to it, develops the potential of it turning into a headlining event. As if it wasn’t enough, the rapper out of Compton added Pharrell Williams to the production lineup and that explains why he is so excited in the buildup to his fourth studio album’s August 23 release.
In a quick word with MTV News on the shoot of his ‘Pot of Gold’, Game said, “This album is the most incredible album of my career. First, I’m back with Dr. Dre, which is a bonus and dope for me. Second,More >
Rhode Island’s most famous DJ and rap’s biggest gangsta, together at last.
Pauly D is close to joining forces with G-Unit, 50 Cent’s label, as 50 desperately wants to sign the Jersey Shore star and has offered a three-album deal.
In a sign of the apocalypse – but not one you can really get upset about ’cause c’mon, who doesn’t love Pauly D – the two sides are nearing a contract.
The Jersey Shore pimp/DJ met with Fiddy and his people in NYC last week, where they discussed the lucrative record deal and a Pauly D merchandise line.
Specifically, Pauly D-brand headphones, obviously.
We know that he’s been in bed with Chelsea Handler, but the true nature of 50 Cent’s relationship with the comedienne has never been clearly defined.
Are they dating? Were they dating? Were they just friends? Did he wanna be more than just friends only to be shot down? It’s all very unclear.
In a recent interview with Vibe, Fiddy sort of clarified things. Okay, not at all. But he does admit that Chelsea Handler is a pretty awesome gal.
Is it love? Friendship? Whatever it is, 50′s got a thing for her.
“Chelsea is confident. I think confidence is the sexiest thing about a person,” theMore >
We suppose you can give 50 Cent credit for trying to lighten the mood, but it was still a little soon for Japanese earthquake/Tsunami humor, most likely.
While countless celebrities Tweeted their thoughts and prayers to the victims, the rapper attempted some online stand-up comedy, with mixed results.
Some of 50′s ill-advised Twitter tsunami one-liners …
- “Its all good Till b*tches see there christian louboutins floating down da street shit gone get crazy.”
- “Look this is very serious people I had to evacuate all my hoe’s from LA,Hawaii and Japan. I had to do it. Lol”
- “Wave will hit 8am
(HMG Celebrity News) – When you’re romantically involved with someone who isn’t very anxious to admit to others you are a couple, heartache usually follows. UsMagazine is reporting that rumored couple Chelsea Handler, 35, dumped 50 Cent just before the holidays, leaving the 35-year-old rapper “heartbroken.” Their source said 50 Cent tried to win her back and, “spent Christmas sending her gifts, but she sent them back. She put a note on one that said, ‘I can buy my own gifts.’” Still Fiddy doesn’t seem like the sort to mope around for too long. And either Chelsea has moved on veryMore >
Chelsea Handler may have Tweeted a photo of herself in bed with 50 Cent, but the two are definitely not a couple, according to the rapper-turned-actor.
When Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos asked 50 to set the dating rumor straight at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, he did just that.
And he said the two are not involved romantically.
“No, you could’ve asked Chelsea,” he said. “She made that visible for everyone.”
Probed again by Maria, who mentioned the late night host and the rapper’s closeness of late, Mr. Cent laughed and said, “We’re just good friends.”
So why hasMore >
Yes, you read both parts of the above headline correctly.
50 Cent made a fortune from rapping, but that doesn’t mean he’s content to rest on his laurels and Tweet photos of himself with stacks of cash all day.
Okay, well he does do that a fair amount But our point is that 50, a.k.a. Curtis Jackson, is proving quite the businessman in addition to entertainer.
MAKIN’ BANK: Chelsea Handler must be attracted to more than his rap skills.
50 Cent recently Tweeted about a penny stock company he’s invested in … one that’s up 290 percent since he pitched the stock tip to 3.8 millionMore >
