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.
Mary J. Blige is basically handling the entire movie soundtrack for the upcoming "Think Like A Man Too" film, thus almost making it a new LP for the r'n'b singer. We've received three original records thus far, including one yesterday titled "See That Boy Again" featuring Pharrell.
Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum will return this summer in the sequel to the comedy "21 Jump Street," "22 Jump Street." For the upcoming film, Angel Haze and Ludacris connect for the soundtrack's title track. If that collabo was surprising enough, then listen to the very EDM production these two are rapping over. Hmmm.
Mary J. Blige may just be the film industry's favorite R&B diva. On top of appearing as herself in HBO's industry-based series Entourage, Blige has contributed to more than 50 soundtracks over the course of her 15 year career.
We've known a film for Yeezus has been in the works for a minute now. In February we got confirmation from the author of "American Pyscho", Bret Easton Ellis, that he'd been working on writing a film with 'Ye, and that was soon followed up with an official trailer for the film was released via Kanye's website.

As we reported on at the beginning of March, Keyshia Cole and Iggy Azalea were spotted in the studio re-making the classic Biggie track "Mo Money, Mo Problems" which samples Diana Ross. Word of this incited quite a bit of backlash from HNHH commenters, and now the full song has come to light, titled "I'm Coming Out."
50 Cent stays busy in multiple lanes. When he's not working on music for Animal Ambition and possibly Street King Immortal, he's kept himself busy with roles in TV production, and motion pictures as well.
Ever since Lil Boosie's surprise return on March 5th, we've seen a big influx of Boosie-related content to the site, whether it be news about Boosie, new tracks or a video of his first freestyle in the car ride home from jail. Today, we keep that content coming with another Boosie interview.
Over the years many rappers have ventured into acting and usually watching them act on the big screen is excruciating or downright funny. But sometimes there are rare gems where that rapper surprises you and goes beyond expectations to show off a stellar performance.
