Anytime I hear 50 Cent’s “In Da Club,” I am immediately taken back to freshmen year of high school. To say that this was my jam would be a severe understatement. So of course, I was thrilled to hear that Elle Varner sampled the popular 2003 track on her new single, “Birthday,” which features the Queens rapper.
On the sultry track, which has been released just in time for summer, Elle teases her man, who just celebrated a birthday, about the extra special loving that she has in store for him. The 26-year-old let’s him know that from now on, she’ll be servicing him as if it’s his birthday, everyday.
I know you love it, when I, spoil you, baby
So I’ma treat you like it’s your birthday every day
It’s your day, your day; you can have it your way
Then the next day, then the next day, then the next day after that
The song is pretty self-explanatory, but Elle tells Billboard:
“Imagine if your lover treated you like everyday was your birthday! We captured that fun and sexy vibe on this record. You can certainly add this one to your go-to collection of ‘Birthday’ classics.”
I’ll admit that I wasn’t too sure about the track at first, but by the second listen, I was hooked. I’ll be adding this one to my summer playlist. “Birthday” is the first single from Elle’s upcoming album, 4 Letter Word.
Listen to “Birthday” below. Let us know if you’re passing or playing.
50 Cent’s had a lot of major achievements in his life, but for every million-dollar money-making idea he executes, there’s always some messiness that seems to overshadow his business savvy. And he’s over it.
We chatted with the rapper and entrepreneur at a press junket for the hit series “Power,” which returns to Starz tomorrow night, and he spoke on his rocky relationship with his oldest son and how frustrating it is that whenever he does something with his younger son people always bring up the problems he’s had with Marquise. We sort of understand why…but we get where 50’s coming from too. Check out all he had to say in the video above and weigh in in the comments section.
Adding to his CV, 50 Cent is getting into underwear. Yep, the hip-hop mogul has inked a deal for his own line of men’s underwear. Called FRIGO RevolutionWear, it’s a high-end line of undergarments. And for the venture, 50 partnered with Carmelo Anthony, Derek Jeter, and Timbaland, reports TMZ. These are not Fruit Of The Looms. The underwear and T-shirts cost $100 each, and will hit stores this summer.
The brand was actually founded by Mathias Ingvarsson in 2013, but in December 2014 they company made a multi-million deal with 50, who bragged about the deal on Instagram. At the time, 50 posted that the deal was for $78 million.
To promote the line, 50 has appeared in an advertising campaign that recently debuted on billboards nationwide. He posted on of the adverting campaign shots on his Instagram, and in them the 39-year-old rapper shows off his impressive physique.
This is becoming a hot mess. According to a Florida woman, hip-hop mogul 50 Cent invaded her privacy by posting a video on the Internet of her having sex with her boyfriend. But 50 is shifting the blame to fellow rapper Rick Ross, saying it was actually Ross who posted the clip.
Lastonia Leviston is suing, but 50 tried to get out of a state trial by filing a federal bankruptcy petition for his boxing promotion company. A federal judge however isn’t having it, and recently refused to let the music entrepreneur skip out of the trial over the video.
“Judge Katherine Failla separated the two cases at the request of a young Florida mother who accuses the rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, of humiliating her and invading her privacy by posting a video on the Internet of her having sex with a boyfriend,” reports The New York Daily News.
Leviston, 36, says Jackson posted the video in 2009 to taunt his rival, Ross, because Ross is the father of her child. The post got four million views. A jury was to be selected earlier this week in state court, but this was postponed due to 50 Cent abruptly filing bankruptcy for SMS Promotions, just one of 50’s companies.
While SMS may be in trouble, 50 Cent is far from broke. He reportedly netted $100 million in the sale of shares in VitaminWater.
According to Leviston’s lawyer, jury selection should begin next week.
You might remember when 50 Cent and Rick Ross had beef resulting in a lot of madness including a character called “Pimpin Curly” and a sex tape starring Rick Ross’s child’s mother.
TMZ reports that 50 Cent is now filing a lawsuit against Rick Ross. 50 Cent says that Rick Ross or a member of his entourage is actually responsible for the tape’s initial release. 50 says he merely posted a link to it. He also refers to an interview Rick Ross did with a radio station a day before the footage was leaked on-line in which the “Diced Pineapples” rapper said he was going to release a sex tape.
Lastonia Leviston, the woman who appears in the tape, brought a lawsuit against 50 Cent in 2010 for releasing the video which currently has millions of views. Leviston says the embarrassment over the video’s release which features her having sex with her ex-boyfriend Maurice Murray left her so distraught she even contemplated suicide. Leviston says Murray gave 50 Cent’s camp the tape since he too had issues with Ross and wanted retaliation.
Legal documents state that if 50 Cent loses in his case with Leviston, Ross should cover the judgement because he is truly the guilty party.
Previous efforts failed to have the case of Leviston against 50 Cent dropped and the trial is scheduled to begin in June.
Tonight your chocolate dreams will come true on screen as Robert Ri’chard, Tyson Beckford, Darren Dewitt Henson, and more fine brothers of brown hue take it all off in the film being pegged as a Black “Magic Mike,” “Chocolate City.” The film stars more fine men than a little bit alongside Vivica Fox, who plays Ri’chard’s on-screen mama, so when she came by the office with her movie son and Henson we had to ask her how she handled being around all that chocolate on set.
More than that, we got a little personal with Miss Fox and delved into her dating life — past and present — whether she still has plans to adopt, and what she thinks about archnemesis Kenya Moore’s latest relationship flub. We don’t want to give it all away here, but just know the words “toxic trick” were used and the level of shade was unprecedented. Check out the video above and let us know what you think.
Are you going to see “Chocolate City” tonight?
Celebrity relationships operate a lot like trends–in one day and so far out the next. (Just ask Big Sean and Ariana Grande.) In fact, it’s rare for the public to take a particular interest in any relationship for more than 15 minutes if it isn’t Jay and Bey or Kimye.
But one new relationship that has people talking is Ciara’s current romance with Russell Wilson. Fans of her music or not, some women are interested in seeing how that courtship will play out. It isn’t because the pair are especially cute together or because their union – singer falls for athlete – is unique. Nope. Interests lie in whether or not this new relationship of sorts will last. You can blame this newfound concern on CiCi’s track record with dreamboat boos who, unsurprisingly, turned out to be nightmares in front of the world.
Yes, Ciara has fallen for a few princes who ultimately turned back into frogs. There was Shad Moss, then known as Lil Bow Wow, a relationship that could be placed in the puppy love department. Following Moss was 50 Cent, who comes with a laundry list of eccentric antics that can often be too much for even his Instagram followers to handle. Then there was NBA star Amar’e Stoudemire, who eventually went back to his ex, whom he went on to marry. Rounding out the bunch is Future, who allegedly cheated on the star. Despite Future now being a part of her past, she shares a beautiful baby boy with him.
It is perhaps all of these train wrecks that keep us watching Ciara’s love life play out with baited breath, hoping it will all work out. Not only is Ciara a sweet and positive person who deserves good luck in love, but who can’t relate to her story of falling for Mr. Wrong? There is no rulebook for dating, falling in love, or keeping a happy home, so we do the best we can and learn lessons along the way. Instead of dwelling on previous love mishaps, the “I Bet” singer seemingly mends her broken heart and moves on – quicker than many may expect.
Breakups can leave a girl feeling stuck and wanting to take a break from men. But one thing we could learn from the CiCi is that it’s ok to keep trying. You don’t have to put love on the back burner because it’s been an uphill battle.
Will Russell Wilson be Ciara’s knight in shining armor, the man to deliver unconditional love (and stay faithful)? Well, it’s way too early to tell. Their appearance at the White House dinner and even his good luck tweet to the singer, as she prepared for her tour, aren’t enough information to provide the answer. But still, his actions so far show that he’s not afraid to let people know how he feels about her. (And that he’s sprung.) Considering that CiCi has always been the one doing the gushing about the guys in her life, it’s safe to say that they’re off to a great start.
It’s probably safe to assume that 50 Cent and his son Marquise Jackson have not made amends—and you’d better not ask him about it unless you don’t mind being berated by the Queens rapper. Recently, the 39-year-old shared a photo of himself kissing his adorable 2-year-old son, Sire Jackson, but things quickly went left when a commenter asked about Marquise.
“My little guy is getting big so fast. I feel like I’m gonna blink and he’s gonna pull off in one of my cars. Lol,” 50 captioned the photo.
“What about your first born?” the fan questioned.
“Why only angry Black b-tches got something to say about my other son he grown. What you want to give him some p-ssy? Google him.”
His response quickly sparked a debate between black women and black men, some of whom claimed that the the commenters inquiry is precisely why “Black dudes end up with white chicks.”
As you may recall, 50 has been on the outs with Marquise for years now. He has publicly blamed his ex, Shaniqua Tompkins, for turning their son against him. Two summers ago, he even threatened to write Marquise out of his will.
“I broke up with his dad when Marquise was 10 1/2,” Shaniqua said last year after 50 missed Marquise’s graduation. “So he’s been with his dad from birth till then. He loves his dad. He misses his dad. So of course it hurts. He used to cry about it. He used to really get down in his spirit. But I think when a person does stupid sh-t all the time, it starts to lose its impact.”
Clearly, this is still a sore subject for 50, but it still doesn’t explain why that made this woman an “angry Black b-tch” for asking about his son.
A video 50 cent released six years ago, is finally coming back around to bite him in the ass.
According to the New York Daily News, the rapper will appear in court in June for posting footage of Rick Ross’ baby mother having sex on YouTube. Lastonia Leviston, sued 50 for emotional distress in 2010 after he posted the video. The video, which showcases Leviston having sex with her ex-boyfriend, Maurice Murray, gained more than 3.2 million views.
According to court papers, Murray gave Jackson the tape in 2009 after Jackson, 39, recognized Leviston as former girlfriend of the rapper’s rival, Rick Ross. She is also the mother of Ross’ child.
Move over 50, there’s a new star in the family.
The son of rapper 50 Cent has just inked a pretty big modeling contract. He may be only two years old, but Sire has landed a modeling deal, according to his father, who broke the news during a radio interview with Angie Martinez on Power 105.1.
The contract is reportedly worth $700,000.
“He’s got a [modeling] deal now with Kidz Safe,” 50 Cent said. “It’s an audio company. They paid him a big payment too: $700,000.” (Video below.)
“He’s super cute, you gotta pay for it,” 50 joked.
Here are some new images of Sire on the runway at a Isabella Couture Kids show during LA Fashion Week. And look at proud poppa in the front row.
But Sire, the rapper’s son with ex-girlfriend Daphne Joy, won’t be able to go on a spending spree anytime soon (not that a two year old could). Fitty says he’s doing the financially wise thing and will put Sire’s paycheck into a trust that he can’t access until he turns 18 in 2031.
Sire will have a little competition from dad. The rapper and entrepreneur is also due to shoot an underwear ad soon.
