50 Cent Holds Up "R.I.P Meek Mill" Shirt At Oakland Concert

Screen King Immortal: 10 Times 50 Cent Was Name-Dropped In Film & TV
For a while there, in the mid-2000s, 50 Cent was the most visible hip hop star in the country. To this day, he's the only rapper that my 86-year-old grandma can name. Such was his prominence that if you were writing a script for a television show or movie and needed shorthand for "a gangster rapper who everyone knows," odds are you'd pick him. Perfectly fitting the bill for the street-affiliated, unfuckwithable image popularized by '90s legends Tupac and Biggie, Fif also had a dash of showmanship that made him a little less intimidating to the general public.

#TBT: 50 Cent
You may know 50 Cent from a variety of movies. You may know him for his ventures in the businesses of boxing, energy drinks, or clothing. But if you're like us, you know him for his early 2000s rap bangers. When Get Rich Or Die Tryin' hit the shelves of music stores in 2003, it seemed as if hip-hop had a new king. For a brief period of time, it did. Tracks like "In Da Club," and "21 Questions" were number one hits, and they helped to propel the album to the number one spot as well. 50 was king, no doubt.
Kidd Kidd Arrested During XXL Freshman Concert In NYC
Well this is unfortunate. G-Unit member Kidd Kidd was arrested and taken into custody Tuesday night before the XXL Freshmen concert in New York City. The details as for why he was arrested are still unknown, but filling in his place to perform on his behalf was 50 Cent (who was supposed to be his special guest) and the rest of the entire G-Unit family. Footage captured by a fan (see below) shows Kidd Kidd literally getting put into cuffs and taken away by undercover cops.
10 Best Hip-Hop Crews Of All Time
The hip hop crew is an essential part of success. Whether big or small, every rapper has an entourage. Sometimes it's full of rappers, and other times it's just his buddies from back in the day, nonetheless, weak links in a crew can water down the crew as a whole-- something we took into consideration when crafting this list. You have the multimedia approach that Odd Future takes, and also the full-on lyrical assault that Wu-Tang Clan makes. Both are great crews, but who would comprise a list of the best rap crews of all time?
50 Cent Says Summer Jam Security Didn't Want To Let G-Unit In
Hot 97 Summer Jam is always full of surprises, and one of the biggest this year was G-Unit's crash of Chris Brown's set. The last people we were expecting Breezy to bring out were 50 and the gang, but nevertheless, they came through with classic Get Rich Or Die Tryin' Records Like "What Up Gangsta" and "Many Men".
A Brief History Of The Game's Beefs
Today, The Game became the first major rapper to chime in on the controversy between Lil Wayne and Young Thug. He had to choose Blood over Blood, and, unsurprisingly, chose Carter over Barter, and warned Thugga not to step foot anywhere in the Golden State.
Who Had The Better Verse: Fabolous Vs. Lloyd Banks
New York has always had a strong lineage of lyrical rappers. The Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Rakim, and Jay Z cultivated New York Rap with their lyrical candor and unblemished wordplay. While some tried to follow the blueprint of these rap aficionados, many failed. Despite there being a dearth of lyrical rappers representing NY, Fabolous and Lloyd Banks have undoubtedly left their marks. Neither is loud and boisterous, but each pack huge punches within their arsenal. When both men collide on a record, all you hear are #bars, making it pretty difficult to gauge who out-rapped the other.

Joe Budden soon quoted 50's tweet, following with "They petty lol". Joe was apparently referencing the quote at the end of the trailer, "It only starts a war if they know you did it," but 50 initially took Joe's tweet as a diss, and quickly responded with, "what you say bitch!!"
Charts Don’t Lie: March 15
This week we’re seeing a new entry with G-Unit’s The Beast Is G-Unit EP hitting the charts. Although it moved under 20k opening week, we doubt the Unit is too upset. 50 Cent had mentioned in a previous interview that the whole reason they kicked off their reunion with EPs was to relieve some of the pressure of dropping an album, and it not doing numbers—basically, it’s easier to start with EPs and work their way towards that album that’ll have a big opening week.
