50 Cent Receives Letter From Big Meech Approving A Black Mafia Family TV Show

50 Cent Asks Crowd To Name Diddy's Last Single
Seemingly higher than sex and making money on 50 Cent's list of the joys of life is throwing shade at Diddy. Last night, during an appearance at a nightclub in Arizona, he asked the crowd to name Diddy's most recent single in order to prove his irrelevance. “Name his last fucking single,” 50 says, with no immediate response. “The last single off his last album. Do anybody in here know what the last fuckin single was? The DJ don’t know. Google this shit, man.”

Rack City: 10 Hip Hop Sex Tape Scandals

In contrast with the first few months of 2015, when it seemed like our Top Tracks lists were just the same Kanye and Drake tracks rising and falling with each ensuing week, the past few editions have been utter chaos, with the #1 spot changing every week. Staying power is proving difficult to achieve in an increasingly crowded summer playing field-- Beyoncé and Birdman's chart-toppers from two and one week ago, respectively, are nowhere to be found this week, although a few of the lower-ranking tracks stuck it out.

Top Tracks: May 2 - May 8
With VIEWS out in the world and disappointing the majority of those who heard it, there's now a new music void that many rushed to fill this past week as summer rapidly approaches. Desiigner's "Panda" and Drizzy's "One Dance" are still frontrunners for the "song of the summer" title, but there's plenty of time for new entries to rise and compete with them.
