50 Cent has been going and back with his record label, Interscope Records, for a while now about his upcoming album, Black Magic. On Wednesday, he went off against Interscope on Twitter announcing that he will not be putting out another album due to conflicts with the record company and their slow movement on his project:
Man I’m not releasing a album I can’t believe interscope is this f*cked up right now. I apologize to all my fans. I will work with other artist on there projects but I will not put out another album. They dropped the ball with me one time to many.
After his Twitter tantrum, 50 and Interscope supposedly resolved their issues. 50 told MTV, “By the time we got to go sit down with Jimmy Iovine, we talked a little bit and then I ended up having to go see Dr. Dre because we had the little issue. We sat down, we cleared that up, me and Dre, and then we said, ‘Let’s just get back to the music and do what we do.’”
But the issues rose to the surface again Wednesday, possibly spurred on by the release of Fiddy’s track, “I’m On It,” which was leaked by the record company. He then threatened to leak Dr. Dre’s new single, “Psycho”.
When I first learned that Samuel L. Jackson was narrating a children’s book, all I could think about was Dave Chappelle’s impersonation of him from “The Chappelle Show” with Sam Jackson’s beer, and I thought I’d pass, but that was until I actually gave it a chance and it’s extremely hilarious!
This sounds like something my parents would actually say to me when I was a child.

Despite the harsh criticism from critics about the latest movie from Warner Bros., The Green Lantern, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Even though I thought a movie catered to comic book lovers was a little too mushy with all the lovey dovey between Hal Jordan played by Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, it was still pretty okay.
I don’t know how I missed this from the preview trailers, but Angela Bassett and Michael Clarke Duncan were also a part of the cast. Angela played the part of Dr. Amanda Waller, former congressional aide and Michael Clark Duncan did voice over work for the character, Kilowog.
Angela Basset never ceases to amaze me and I am so glad that she is one of those actresses that can bounce back and forth between urban entertainment movies to mainstream movies.
Beyonce is still having the best year ever! King B, or whatever it is she calls herself nowadays, was amongst 178 artists and executives invited from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to join the ranks of Oscar voters.
The Academy selected their invitees based on those whom have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures. Those who accept the invitation will be the only additions in 2011 to the Academy’s roster of members.
“These individuals are among the best filmmakers working in the industry today,” said Academy President Tom Sherak. “Their talent and creativity have entertained moviegoers around the world, and I welcome each of them to our ranks.”
