    The struggle is real. We've seen just about every celebrity, relevant and non-relevant, take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and go on to challenge their fellow celebrity friends to do the same. However, 50 Cent decided to stray from the pack and challenged his not-so friend Floyd Mayweather to read one page from a Harry Potter book without stopping and starting or fucking up. If Floyd accepted said challenge and was successful, Fif said he would donate $750k to a charity of his choice.

    I Am Music. The title of Lil Wayne’s 2008-2009 national tour needed no further explanation. Wayne, who had just released his Grammy Award-winning album Tha Carter III, had the rap game on lockdown. Using binoculars, it still would’ve been hard to see stragglers such as actor-turned-rapper Drizzy Drake in Wayne’s rearview. Drake, who hadn’t yet released his 2009 breakthrough mixtape So Far Gone, was still a no-name rapper to the greater half of the hip-hop community. Fast forward five years later, oh how the tables have turned.

    50 Cent is a proven business man, but his SMS Audio venture has not been able to compete with bigger headphone brands like Dr. Dre's Beats. However, Fif has stuck with it, and has recently announced that the company will be partnering with a major tech brand in the near future. His business partner, Brian Nohe explained the plans for the company to the Wall Street Journal. "We're working with a major technological company and soon to announce a very major new product," he said.

    Floyd Mayweather has had his share of beefs with hip-hop artists over the past few years (including a major riff with T.I. over the past few weeks), but perhaps no battle has lasted as long as that between him and G-Unit head honcho 50 Cent.

    50 Cent and Common aren't exactly two rappers whom you'd expect to collaborate, as Fif once had a much-publicized feud with Common's longtime pal Kanye West, and the subject matter that they rap about couldn't be more different. Though we don't yet know what their work together will entail, we do know that the pair have, in Fiddy's words, "BIG THINGS TO COME." Yesterday the G-Unit rapper posted an Instagram photo of him and Common and captioned it "Ran into COMMON we on the move BIG THINGS TO COME. #SMSAUDIO." Check it out below.

    50 Cent has taken a few opportunities to send shade Diddy's way over the last year, most recently calling him a "sucker" in a GQ interview. The rapper is not through with Puff, it seems, as a new Instagram video uploaded to his account finds him mocking his brand of Vodka, Ciroc, before addressing Diddy directly.

    "Go 'head and switch the style up/And if they hate, then let 'em hate and watch the money pile up" is quickly becoming less of a lyric from 50 Cent's "In Da Club" and more of a mantra that the entrepreneur lives his life by. If you take "style" to mean "profession," Fif's switched it up a lot, going from rapping to acting to advertising to, most recently, executive producing the Starz show "Power." It seems like he's taken a liking to the TV production life, as he just announced that he sold a show to Comedy Central.

    G-Unit only reunited at the beginning of the month, but they already have a number of new tracks under their belt. While 50 initially announced plans for an album from the group, speculation arose in light of the freestyles that a mixtape may too be in the works. Fif confirmed this rumor last week, and in a new interview with MTV has shared a few more details concerning the projects..

    We all know G-Unit is working on a new album for the fall, but could we be seeing a mixtape beforehand as well? According to Fif we are.  In a new interview with Jenny Boom Boom, 50 Cent spoke on several issues going on his life right now, but the one thing that stuck out in the interview was the information retaining the upcoming G-Unit album, and mixtape. Yes, mixtape. Around the 17:40 mark, Fif reveals that the G-Unit album is due out late November/early December and they are also working on a new mixtape which we assume will come out before that.

    Charts Don’t Lie: June 22
    Jun 22, 2014 at 11:51 AM
    This week we saw quite a few albums get pushed down thanks to new entries on the Billboard 200 that weren't strictly hip-hop. Jack White's Lazaretto took over the #1 spot, and various other albums, including a country record and "The Fault In Our Stars" movie soundtrack, rounded out the top 5. We won't spend too much time discussing those LPs as you likely have no interest in knowing where Miranda Lambert landed this week, however the hip-hop and r'n'b chart action was rather unexciting this week as well.

    50 Cent entered the Billboard 200 this week, with Animal Ambition moving more than the projected amount, although it's still not the numbers Fif used to do. It's independent numbers though, with a showing of 47,000 units. It will likely be quiet on the charts until we approach June 24th, when we've got multiple albums, including ones from Ab-Soul and Riff Raff, dropping. Until then, we'll have to just keep track on how Fif and friends are doing.

    50 Cent has some experience in film and television at this point. From his acting debut in Get Rich Or Die Tryin', to his executive production on new Starz crime drama, Power, Fif is finding his way into the film industry. It looks as though 50's new show isn't his only focus at the moment, as the rapper announced today that he'll be executive-producing a new film called B.M.F.

    50 Cent and Slowbucks have been entangled in some legal drama ever since Hot 97 Summer Jam went down, and Slowbucks lost his chain thanks to someone snatching it off his neck. That someone is allegedly a member of Fif's entourage (and reportedly the guy was arrested over the weekend).
