WHAT's HOT!? What did you MISS this week in MUSIC/ENTERTAINMENT??? Let's run down the 5 BIG things we are talking about this week!!
5. 50 Cent's SON makes his RAP debut--DISSES his SUPERSTAR DAD!!
Remember back in 50 Cent's EARLY days, his oldest son, Marquise was ALWAYS in his videos and the two seemed to have a GOOD relationship...that is until he grew up. As he got older an
and 50's relationship with his mom SOURED even more, the two have been ESTRANGED. Well, Marquise is a young adult now and has embarked on is OWN rap career. In his DEBUT to the game, he takes a few shots at his CELEBRITY DAD!
On the 14th anniversary of his father’s debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’, 50 Cent’s first-born son Marquise Jackson unleashes his own intro to the rap world with “Different,” premiering exclusively on Rap-Up.
“That’s the first song that I ever, ever made,” Jackson tells Rap-Up. “[It’s] my first complete song with a hook and verses and everything. It was more or less me just venting, me getting a lot of frustrations, a lot of feelings out. People say they can hear the hunger inside the track and that’s what I was feeling at the moment.”
Inspired by Dr. Dre’s Eminem and Xzibit-assisted “What’s the Difference” single off 2001, the confessional track also addresses Marquise’s fractured relationship with his dad. “Lost my pops, he’s still alive,” raps Jackson.
TAKE a LISTEN!
Well he is about as good as his father at his age....TAKE IT FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH....
4. Nicki Minaj and Gucci Mane SQUASH their BEEF!
IT may seem like ANCIENT HISTORY, but Nicki Minaj and Gucci Mane did have a BEEF. REMEMBER WAY BACK when Nicki was first getting her start, she had ties to Gucci and Waka Flocka's BRICK SQUAD in ATL. Once Nicki met Wayne, the rest was HISTORY and she BLEW UP, while Gucci would be IN AND OUT of jail and Waka....well WAKA kinda just fell off a bit... NONETHELESS the two [Gucci and Nicki] exchanged some WORDS on social media and their 'BEEF' formed. Gucci may have been a LITTLE salty about Nicki's SUCCESS so he had this to say once upon a time:
In 2013, Gucci dissed Nicki, on Twitter. “Me and waka fuck nikki minaj dats nothing,” tweeted Gucci. “Tell. Her intervention my dick in her throat I moved dat bitch to atl. Bitch u was sleepin n d car. Bitch. I pulled dat bitch off wayne bus.”
Minaj clapped back: “May God strike me dead if I ever had sex wit that man. Lmfaoooooooooo. Ni**a da way ya #ugliness is set up #BubbaGump #crackhead.”
Four years later all seems FORGIVEN and the TWO have mended the fence so to speak...
On Wednesday (FEB. 8th) the two were seen on INSTAGRAM posing together in a show of SOLIDARITY...
“Salute and much respect to @nickiminaj,” Gucci wrote...
Maybe a POSSIBLE collab is in the works??? The two have made FIRE MUSIC together and BOTH are working on ALBUMS now... WE SHALL SEE...
