The 38-year-old has spent the last 12 years operating under Shady Records/Aftermath and Interscope, where he sold over 30 million albums, and garnered an impressive 13 Billboard Music Awards, 6 World Music Awards, 4 BET Awards, and 3 American Music Awards.

Dominic Pandiscia, President of Caroline, commented:

“We are thrilled to welcome 50 Cent and G-Unit to our family. 50 is simply one of the most accomplished


MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Last Vegas’

Film: Last Vegas
Starring: Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro
Directed by: Jon Turteltaub

Walking into a movie like Last Vegas you usually have a preconceived notion of what you’re about to see. In this case, you’ve probably seen the posters or trailer(s) and realized the plot is similar to The Hangover, only this time the leads are all eligible for AARP cards. That is true, to an extent, but once you get past the predictability of the plot there is a lot more to love than initially meets the eye.…

The video keeps us locked in a breathtaking view of 50′s enormous crib, complete with models, an extravagant view, and too many pools. This house has everything you need to be happy forever.

STREAM: 50 Cent – “We Up” (Updated Version)

50 Cent‘s collaboration with Kendrick Lamar has already been on the web since February, but today we have an updated version of “We Up” that features two verses by Curtis instead of the original version’s sole verse and a guest spot by Kidd Kidd.

As of now, the only news we have on a release date for fif’s upcoming sixth studio album, Street King Immortal, is that it will be releasing this spring.

Follow the jump for a listen of the track.…

50 Cent 2013

STREAM: 50 Cent – “We Up (Feat. Kendrick Lamar & Kidd Kidd)”

The single we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. 50 Cent’s collaboration with Kidd Kidd and Kendrick Lamar has arrived.

We caught a bit of the song with a teaser for the music video (which is still under wraps) a few weeks ago. The clip was a generous 2 minutes long, but it lacked the features boasted in the song’s title.

Kendrick Lamar takes up a venomous verse about a minute in while Kidd Kidd rattles off a few bars a minute after that, separated by an acceptable chorus from 50 Cent.

You can hear the tune after the …

VIDEO PREVIEW: 50 Cent, Kidd Kidd & Kendrick Lamar – “We Up”

This morning we get a special sneak peek into the visuals for 50 Cent, Kidd Kidd and Kendrick Lamar’s song “We Up.”

Coming into the picture with nothing more than a white background and a beautiful girl on his arm, 50 seems to be aiming towards the less-is-more approach for this particular video. We find this clip is nothing like his other videos, which depict Curtis killing, harming, or seriously endangering people’s lives. This feels more laid back.

50 Cent is currently gearing up to promote his spring release of Street King Immortal and what better way to start the …


STREAM: 50 Cent Featuring Snoop Dogg And Young Jeezy – “Major Distribution”

50 Cent teamed up with two other hip-hop heavyweights (Snoop Dogg and Young Jeezy) to release his latest track “Major Distribution” earlier tonight on DJ Enuff’s Hot 97 show. This song, along with his previously released single, “My Life”, will be featured on 50′s fifth full length release, Street King Immortal in early 2013.

Ma$e Jumps From Bad Boy Records, To Land At G.O.O.D. Music?

It looks like the former pastor isn’t a bad boy anymore.

Rapper Ma$e revealed in an interview with MTV’s RapFix Live that he was no longer affiliated with Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Bad Boy Records after spending 16 years on their roster.

“Yeah, the other day [Combs] let me out of it,” said Ma$e of Diddy’s decision to let him out of his contract, reportedly only a few days prior to the interview. “So big shout-outs to Diddy, I guess he woke up feeling good and he wanted to do something good.”

Ma$e also expounded on some of the other twists …


STREAM/DOWNLOAD: Chief Keef Ft 50 Cent & Wiz Khalifa – “Hate Bein Sober”

Holy. Shit.

One of the most anticipated tracks off Chief Keef’s upcoming major label debut has finally arrived online. “Hate Bein Sober” pairs the “Love Sosa” rapper with industry heavyweights Wiz Khalifa and 50 Cent against another undeniably heavy beat from Young Chop. I hate to say Keef takes a backseat to guests on his own song, but I think that may be the case. You can stream, download, and enjoy “Hate Bein Sober” after the jump.

What I want to know is: Where was this song when UTG’s Ignorant Anthems of 2012 was released? We may need a deluxe …


50 Cent Claims He Will “Put French Montana Out Of Business”

The Fall has brought to light a lot of feuds in the world of hip hop. We spoke briefly a few weeks back about Gucci and Jeezy, then it was Meek and Cassidy, and now it seems everyone is turning their gossip-loving attention to a rivalry between 50 Cent and French Montana. I’m not exactly sure what the full story is between these two music heavyweights, but speaking with radio last night, 50 was quoted as saying he would “put French Montana out of business.” You can stream the interview, which includes insight into the video for “My Life,” after …


VIDEO TRAILER: 50 Cent Ft. Eminem & Adam Levine – “My Life”

By looking at the headline you can certainly tell that 50 Cent’s next single “My Life” isn’t messing around. 50 released a thirty-four second trailer for his music video “My Life” this morning, which features none other than Eminem and Adam Levine. Did we mention that there will be a live performance during the hit television show The Voice later on tonight? There will be.

The single is due to drop at midnight through iTunes so be ready to go grab that when it drops. A link to purchase the song can be found right here. Click through to …
