There has been nothing but good news behind headlines regarding 50 Cent over the past couple of weeks. Within 24-hours of him telling Jimmy Kimmel that he played a part in getting the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor fight off of the ground, the hip-hop heavyweight was announcing that he’ll be dropping an album later this year. Now, with the buzz still resonating about Street King Immortal likely being his final solo recording, it appears 50 has bowed out of another one of his business ventures and is making off pretty well from his final transaction.

During Monday’s [July 17] airing of the Breakfast Club Rumor Report, Angela Yee reported that the G-Unit boss has sold his minority stake in Effen Vodka. Fif has held a stake in the Netherlands liquor company since 2014, when he purchased an undisclosed share from Sire Spirits LLC. No longer will he be the brand’s lead spokesperson, thus signifying the end of his competition with Diddy’s Ciroc business.

DJ Envy commented on the situation during Angela’s segment, revealing that 50 Cent pocketed a cool $60 million in the deal, which he confirmed on Instagram. The famed entertainer wrote in a post, “I got the bag, EFFEN Vodka Can you say 60M’s since they like counting my money DO THE MATH. Lol.”

2 Live Crew’s Fresh Kid Ice Dead

EXCLUSIVE

Fresh Kid Ice — founding member of 2 Live Crew, and a pioneer for Asian rappers, died in Miami … TMZ has learned.

Fresh Kid formed the legendary hip-hop crew with DJ Mr. Mixx and Amazing Vee in 1984, and hooked up with Luther Campbell later when they signed with his record label. According to the group’s manager he died at 7:50 AM Thursday in a Miami hospital … due to a medical condition.

Fresh Kid’s real name was Chris Wong Won … and he and the group became poster children for First Amendment Rights after their “As Nasty As They Wanna Be” album was the first to be labeled legally obscene by the government.

He and Campbell were arrested in 1990 after a live performance police deemed obscene and lewd.

Fresh Kid served in the U.S. Air Force for 4 years before getting into music. He went on to form his own label … Chinaman Records.

Nicki Minaj has been relatively quiet with her releases but has been making appearances on stage, as well as with her alleged “friend” as she describes him— Nas. Now, the Queens rapper has tweeted a baby emoji, which has sent fans into a frenzy trying to figure out if she is pregnant. Many fans responded to the tweet, asking if she was dropping the album instead of getting pregnant, while others were wondering if she was pregnant by Nas. Although a pregnancy has not been confirmed by Minaj or anyone from her team, she previously did not deny that she and Nas were involved to some extent. On Ellen, she noted that she and Nas had “sleepovers” but that they were “platonic.”

LL Cool J took to Twitter Sunday night (July 9) to ask fans, followers and anyone who may have a connection to his former co-star Maia Campbell for help. Video footage surfaced over the weekend of the actress high on drugs in Stone Mountain, Georgia.

The 39-year-old was seen missing a tooth while pumping gas and demanding crack. The former In The House actress also alleged to have been raped by a man she says thought he was Bill Cosby. The disheartening video below, which has garnered nearly 200,000 views, is said to have been leaked by Campbell’s supplier.

The Lip Sync Battle actor saw the video of his friend and like many viewed it as exploitative.

Instead of pulling out your phone and filming someone who’s obviously having trouble. Maybe lend a helping hand? A kind word? @MaiaCampbell

Campbell’s struggle with substance abuse has been a tumultuous one. While she has relapsed in the past, she’s also maintained sobriety. In 2012, Campbell sat with Iyanla Vanzant and spoke in depth about her bipolar disorder, as well as her rocky relationship with her mother who had passed away.

Article Image: Diddy: "I'm Not Expecting Trump To Come Save My People"

The New York Times got up with P. Diddy this past week for an exclusive interview in which they the publication got him to reflect on the typical Bad Boy Legacy/ shiny suits era/ all white parties legacy that precedes him. And just as usual came the questions on his politics, which in relative terms have followed him around nearly as prevalently as they do Russell Simmons in recent times. Only, the past year in politics has been anything but usual with the rise of Donald Trump to the seat of the Presidency.

The Times reporter drew Diddy into the topic of politics by recalling his heavy involvement in the Rock The Vote initiative of the mid-2000’s, during which his face was plastered everywhere, along with the slogan, “Vote or die.” The entertainer/executive/entrepreneur has since fallen back from promoting the ballot to the degree he did at the time, which he attributes to the failure of candidates to have earned his faith. “There was nobody I wanted to support. Nobody understands the state of emergency that’s going on in black America,” Diddy responded when asked why he was absent during the 2016 election cycle. “I just really got turned off by politics.”

Diddy was then asked the question that most usually stand on one of two sides on when they espouse either liking or disliking the 45th President. And leave it to Diddy to manage to find middle ground with his answer. “I’m not his enemy or nothing like that, but I’m not expecting Trump to come save my people,” he told the Times after confessing that it’s been awhile since the old acquaintances have gotten together for a round of golf.

Ever since Rob Kardashian’s very public social media meltdown on Wednesday, more than one public figure has weighed in with some advice for the 30-year-old. 50 Cent put up an Instagram post empathizing with Rob and telling him to take some time for himself, and now Snoop Dogg is sounding off with his own words of wisdom.

“I wanna dedicate this song to Rob,” says Snoop while listening to a tune in his car from musical duo Los Dos Primos. “It’s called ‘La Limpia.’ It’s when your d**k go limp behind some s**t your b**ch do.”

As the music plays, the band begins to sing in Spanish. Snoop then gives his own spin on translating what the singer is saying.

“You know what he’s saying? Go get you a white girl…She’ll do what you tell her,” he adds while laughing.
