This past Friday, May 11th, famed rapper 50 Cent showed his support of hunger relief at City Harvest's Food Rescue Facility in NYC. He was joined by his audio company SMS Audio. The company recently partnered with Feeding America, where each purchase on SMSAudio.com in the US provides over 200 meals to hungry Americans. The rapper volunteered with City Harvest in Long Island City to bring attention to the difficulty many Americans face putting food on the table. In addition to helping pack fresh produce for City Harvest to distribute to local New York families, 50 Cent also toured the Food Rescue Facility with City Harvest director Jilly Stephens. Do as 50 does and get involved in charity! See below for some of City Harvest's upcoming events.
Hundreds of LED lit balloons marked the sky as we gazed over what had become our home over the past four days. It was the last show, the final push. We were running on fumes and anticipation after a weekend full of countless standout acts. This was the set we had been waiting for since we were fourteen, sneaking Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg CD’s into our sister’s Walkman to memorize every explicit detail of what would become so monumental so quickly. As we stood amongst the masses in complete disbelief, the entire weekend flashed before our eyes.
They say diamonds are a girl's best friend. The love for them has been imprinted in little girl's minds since Marilyn Monroe shimmied across a stage covered in them. Well, sorry men, but scientists have just discovered a diamond planet. So, if you were having trouble keeping up with the payments on that 1 carat, imagine what's going to happen when some oil heir buys the diamond planet for his mistress.
Reuters reports a the planet has been discovered some 4,000 light years away. The planet is about the size of Jupiter but 20 times more dense. The planet is apparently made of so much carbon that scientists calculate it must be crystalline --effectively making it diamond.
What started with Milli Vanilli has mouthed its way to Steve Angello.
Yes, we are talking about the great art of lip-synching.
But the little monger can't even be called finger-ing (...?), as Steve Angello makes no attempts to hide his utter disinterest behind the decks. (But hey, when the crowd is barricaded nearly 15 feet away behind a haze of smoke and stupor, what's the need for animated antics?) Steve smokes a cigarette, twist five knobs and half-heartedly pumps his palms in the air to pal Axwell's arguably awesome remix of Temper Trap's Sweet Disposition. After that, he turns his back to the crowd as he slicks his ponytail and tosses a drink, for his assistant to pick up. Cocky artist or tired professional?
It looks like the Cash Money army is growing bigger thanks to the label’s main recruiter, Birdman. He just recently cajoled Bow Wow to join the team and lured Dj Khaled and production duo Cool & Dre as well. Now, he’s after The Game.
According to Game, he will probably drop one more album with Interscope after his forthcoming LP, The R.E.D. Album, and then start a new agreement with Cash Money Records soon after.
The R.E.D. Album originally marked the ultimate return of the rapper, as he said he was going to retire after his third album. However, with this new information, it appears that it also signifies his departure, at least from ‘Scope Records.
Max B, who is currently doing 75 years in prison on robbery and murder charges, may be getting bail courtesy of G-unit.
The Harlem Rapper was a co-writer on J.Cole's popular song 'We Fly High,' and has also had affiliation with The Diplomats including rappers, Jim Jones and Cam'Ron. Before the release of Max's debut album, Vigilante Season, he was sentenced in Bergen County Jail for related charges, including 9 of the 11 counts in the ongoing trial. He was granted an appeal with a new trial and a new lawyer on March 19, 2010. There hasn't been word about the case or the rapper until yesterday, when a very close source to the artist revealed his possible break from the pen.
Rapper Fiddy Cent was pre-gaming for his birthday this weekend with new chick, Daphne Joy Navarez. The festivities were held at the Circus Circus Hotel in Vegas, with a lovely 'gangsta' cake. Five-o's best friend, Floyd Mayweather, attended to help celebrate the artists 36th Birthday. Happy Birfdaysesz, half a buck!
HMMM he can have his cake and eat it too ;) ...
If you too wanna get on Fiddy's level, let Joonbug fix you up with some Birthday treats...
Those who love websites with character limits like Twitter are already familiar with URL shorteners. These sites compress the amount of letters used to share a website or video link online and they’re free and available to anyone. Sites like TinyURL compress links against a no-frills backdrop quickly and with ease.
But celebrities like Lady Gaga and 50 Cent are pairing up to endorse a new URL shortening service with a little more flair and a little less redirecting from their own pages. Bre.ad bills itself as a personal billboard, since users can write a comment and upload a picture that will be seen by anyone who clicks their link before being redirected. They are already calling these little shout-outs "toasts", promoting it as a cool new way to share your favorite things with style. Sharing shortened links does become even easier since all the user has to do is type “bre.ad/” in front of any URL they’d like to share with friends and its kept personal in a way that made Myspace and Facebook fun for its users.
The only problem is that Twitter and Tweetdeck have already advanced far enough to shorten URLs into user-friendly hyperlinks. The service is going to heavily rely on celebrity backing and the appeal of making your friends see a custom piece of text and an image before being redirected to the intended site. With a giant corporation like Pepsi already backing the effort and big name celebrities already signing on, though, it might just be a success.
