"A couple of days after G-Unit dropped their Elephant in the Sand mixtape [two weeks ago], I got the call from 50 [Cent] and he was like, 'Drama, what up? It's time to do this G-Unit/ Aphilliates Gangsta Grillz.' He's really going heavy on the ThisIs50.com Web site, and he was saying basically it's time to get G-Unit hot in the South. What better way to do that than to do a Gangsta Grillz? Not only from a South aspect but from a quality street-music aspect. Me and Whoo Kid talked the other day, Fif and G-Unit are getting songs together, [my artists] Willie The Kid and La The Darkman are getting some songs together. I reached out to the King and told him it's a special project; I need him to get busy. We're gonna go in."
Das Ganze soll im April 2008 kostenlos über thisis50.com erscheinen.
Fabolous hingegen hat sich Jay Z als Vorbild genommen und plant ein Konzeptalbum zu veröffentlichen.
?I?mma put a theme together and just go off of that theme,? he said. ?Sometimes producers get lost trying to figure out what they think is the best type of sh? for Fab. [They say,] ?I got this commercial joint for you.? So what I?m doing now, I seen a movie I want to theme the album after. Even take certain lines, different scenes out of the movie and make music behind that. At the same time, I can have the producer check the movie out, and he?ll have something he can take away from the movie and come back with some joints. I wanted to try that this time.?
Weil sonst nicht viel geht heute gibt's es mal nen Classic. Ol Dirty Bastard beschwert sich bei der Grammy Verleihung 1998, dass der Wu-Tang Clan nicht für das beste Rapalbum ausgezeichnet worden ist, sondern P. Diddy.
Im Internet kursiert ein Interview, in dem Young Buck angeblich gesagt hat, dass er von G-Unit Records noch einiges an Kohle bekommen würde. Daraufhin hat Sha Money XL bei allhiphop folgendes zu gesagt:
I, as Buck?s manager and as former President of G-Unit Records want to make it clear: that is false. Young Buck has cleared over $10 million dollars working under 50 Cent?s and my guidance.We don?t know if a writer waited two months on the interview to stir up some new drama or just took his words wrong, but Buck is waving the G-Unit flag strong.
Fat Joe ruft ein paar Kumpels an (u.a. The Game und DJ Khaled) und zieht ein wenig über Curtis her. Gerüchten zufolge hat sich sein neues Album in der ersten Woche 33.000mal verkauft.
P. Diddy und Jimmy Rosemond haben auf den neuen Artikel über die damalige 2Pac Schießerei reagiert und vehement bestritten darin verwickelt zu sein.
"This story is beyond ridiculous and is completely false. Neither Biggie nor I had any knowledge of any attack before, during, or after it happened. It is a complete lie to suggest that there was any involvement by Biggie or myself. I am shocked that the Los Angeles Times would be so irresponsible as to publish such a baseless and completely untrue story."
"In the past 14 years, I have not even been questioned by law enforcement with regard to the assault of Tupac Shakur, let alone brought up on charges. Chuck Phillips, the writer who in the past has falsely claimed that the Notorious Biggie Smalls was in Las Vegas when Tupac was murdered and that Biggie supplied the gun that killed Tupac ? only to be proven wrong as Biggie was in New Jersey recuperating from a car accident, has reached a new low by employing fourth-hand information from desperate jailhouse informants along with ancient FBI reports to create this fabrication. I simply ask for all Rap fans and fans of Tupac to analyze this fiction for what it is along with Phillips? motives behind it. I am baffled as to why the LA Times would print this on its website when a simple and fair investigation would reveal that the allegations are false. I am currently consulting with my attorneys about my legal rights regarding this libelous piece of garbage."
