Justin Timberlake & Timbaland Might Make A Country Album
Justin Timberlake and Timbaland have been working together since the former's debut album Justified, but by the time FutureSex/LoveSounds dropped, it was clear that they were an inseparable creative force.

Outkast Turned Down An Opportunity To Perform At The 2004 Super Bowl
The New England Patriots narrowly defeated the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl XXXVIII, but no one remembers that.

The "wardrobe malfunction" could have been prevented, if Outkast had accepted the NFL's invitation to perform at that year's Super Bowl.
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.

Charts Don’t Lie: December 1
Eminem found his way back to #1 on the Billboard 200, after spending a week at #2. The rapper sold the same amount that some rappers do opening week (if not more) and he's in his third week on shelves with MMLP2. Em's standard for success has undoubtedly been raised higher than the average rapper, so if we were to compare those sales to that of Yo Gotti's opening week for I Am, you may not seem too impressed. But nonetheless, Yo Gotti did well for himself, selling more than any of his past releases, with 47,469 copies, and debuting at #7.
