    If you're on the East Coast like we are, you probably walked outside in the last few days and noticed something; it's fucking cold out. Where'd that come from? It feels like just yesterday we were riding around with our windows down bumping "Hot Nigga" remixes and enjoying our Summer.

    50 Cent has been through so much beef, you could probably dedicate a book to the fights he has picked.
