Participating in a Reddit AMA earlier this afternoon (June 3), 50 Cent answered user-submitted questions on the bulletin board based site. The Ask Me Anything session included questions on the rapper’s recently botched first pitch at a Mets game, his career’s biggest regrets, and the strategy behind his recent Animal Ambition release.
Asked about throwing the first pitch at the Mets vs. Pirates game last week, 50 attributed the mistake to a masturbation related injury.
Lecrae said via Twitter today (June 3) that his new album is slated to drop in August and that it will be titled Anomaly.
The rapper posted a picture with a piece of notebook paper that said, “My name is Lecrae and my new album Anomaly drops August 2014.”
Towards the end of Wiz Khalifa’s recent interview with New York City radio station Hot 97, the Pittsburgh rapper made a big reveal about the remix to his record, “We Dem Boyz.” According to Wiz, the remixed version of the Detail-produced record will feature Nas.
While speaking on the guest appearance from the Queensbridge lyricist, Wiz revealed that he chose Nas because he wants his generation to see the qualities Nas boasted in his early years and throughout his career.
50 Cent is either a master marketer, a compassionate man or an odd mixture of both. Last night (June 1st), hours after releasing their first song together in years, G-Unit confirmed that a new album is in the works.
At the after-party for the screening of the 50 Cent-executive produced show Power, all of the members of G-Unit confirmed that their past differences are behind them and they are currently working on a new album. In the interview with XXL, Yayo explained how their brotherly connection made it easier for the group members to reconcile:
A fight reportedly took place on stage during 50 Cent's Summer Jam 2014 performance.
The fight reportedly involved Slowbucks. XXL reports that Slow was upset that security guards didn't allow him to be on stage during 50 Cent's performance.
Some people were shocked when Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant tweeted out a picture of what was perceived to be the cover art for Lil Wayne’s upcoming album Tha Carter V. Wayne spoke with ESPN to talk about how the All-Star and the rap star connected to make that promotional tactic happen.
“My homey Cortez [Bryant] came up with it: What do you think about Kobe tweeting the album art? I’m like, what do I think? That’d be dope,” said Wayne. “So I had the homey hit him up simple procedure: Hey, can you tweet this? And he did. It wasn’t planned or paid. I only went to the homeys as a favor for a friend.”
As part of his year-long celebration of the 20th anniversary of Illmatic, Nas hit the stage at Summer Jam 2014. He blessed the crowed with tracks from his debut LP like “N. Y. State of Mind,” “Life’s A B***h,” and “Represent.”
The Queensbridge representative also shared his time with two Maybach Music Group affiliates. Meek Mill and French Montana came out to perform “Dreams and Nightmares,” “Ain’t Worried Nothing,” and more.
Lil Wayne is slated to drop what he proclaims is his final album later this year and in anticipation of the release, Wayne has been promoting the project differently than past efforts. Talking with ESPN recently, Weezy spoke about using athletes to promote the album, as Kobe Bryant recently tweeted the album cover art.
“‘Carter V Season’ was all Kobe," Lil Wayne said when asked about Kobe Bryant's contribution. "He came up with it. I saw that and thought, 'That’s dope as hell,' so that’s what we’re calling the [album] campaign. I thanked him. Then we thought about Floyd.”
ith his Animal Ambition set for release next week, 50 Cent stopped by The Breakfast Club yesterday for a final leg of promotion.
Speaking with the Power 105.1 show, 50 detailed his plans for his independent label following his next two albums.
With plans to release his sophomore album this summer, Meek Mill spoke with HipHopSince1987 on location in North Philadelphia about the release.
Asked about the motivation behind the title Dreams Worth More Than Money, Meek said that it represents his current stance in the industry.
