50 Goes In On Fat Joe…Again
50’s going in on his arch nemesis Fat Joe…again. 50 has beef with everybody, but he must really feel some type of way about Fat Joe because he is relentless.
If your still wondering what I’m talking about, then you haven’t been to thisis50.com yet. Well 50 and his goons put up a banner that looks to be promoting Fat Joe’s new album “J.O.S.E. II”, but if you look at the fine print it says:
“WITH 8,800 COPIES SOLD JOE SHOWS NO SIGNS OF STOPPING.”-Rolling Stone
Also if you look real close at Joey’s face, you’ll notice a little photoshop in there with the tear.
“J.O.S.E. II” is Fat Joe’s 9th Studio album and even Fat Joe himself admitted that most fans didn’t even realize he had an album coming out until 50 Cent started announcing it. Fat Joe even thanked 50 Cent for the free promotion, calling 50 “his biggest fan.” Well Joe’s “biggest fan” had this to say regarding his favorite artist:
“A Bad man kicks you while you’re down…Well I’m the worst, I’ma kick Fat Joe in the Head”- 50 Cent
I used to like Fat Joe, but I’m going to have to agree with 50 on this one, only 8,800 copies first week? Apparently Joey isn’t so crack anymore.
Busta Has To Pay 75k For Punch
A hearing was held in Brooklyn yesterday for rapper Busta Rhymes. The hearing is stemming from a 2003 incident where the rapper and his bodyguard assaulted a man at a SUNY Albany concert. Busta was ordered to pay the man $75,000 in damages.
The victim, Alex Duncan, was doused with water, hit with bottles and then sucker punched by Busta. He testified yesterday that he suffered nightmares and psychological after effects of the Sept. 13th, 2003 attack during a break in the concert.
Duncan, who is a 32 year old recently laid off school groundskeeper, says:
“It’s all right. I wanted something to come out of it. I don’t even go to parties anymore, because there’s always someone asking, ‘What happened to that Busta Rhymes case?’ “
Duncan’s lawyer, Ronald Hart, had requested $500,000 of the hearing officer, Luigi Marano, but only received the 75k.
Who’s Going On Tour With Lady Gaga?
