No Cents Sued For ‘Magic Stick’

Posted by Bossip Staff


50 Cent and Lil Kim are the target of a multi-million dollar lawsuit for not sending checks to the producer of the ‘Magic Stick':

“It was one of the hottest tracks on that album, and I didn’t collect my royalties,” Evans told the Associated Press. According to 50 Cent’s lawyer Theodore Sedlmayr, the issue is an accounting issue, because Evans used a sample in “Magic Stick.”

Before Kim’s plastic surgery, this producer probably may have accepted a Fu*kin for tracks arrangement.


No Cents Turn to Be a Crybaby: If Ye’ Gets Jay-Z, Let Me Bring Eminem

Posted by Bossip Staff


No Cents is saying he may not do a BET show again because they didn’t tell him that Ye’ was going to bring out Jay-Z to perform on 106th and Park:

50 says he felt “upstaged” by West’s TV collaboration with Jay-Z, stating he could have countered the duet if he been informed about it ahead of time. Angry 50 says, “Every time I do a show, the plans change. Now, either I’m going to know exactly what I’m doing on the show or I’m not going to go. “If I knew I could’ve brought a special guest, I would’ve brought Eminem.”

No one is checkin’ for Eminem right now, he can’t save you from getting owned. Ciara, TimberFAKE, nothing is working. Poor thang.

As Bossip exclusively reported, industry execs expect Ye’ to have the biggest first week album sales since Ye’s Late Registration in 2005. We are talking 900K- Platinum in a week.


Excuses, Excuses

Posted By Bossip Staff


It only took a day after the release of “Curtis” and “Graduation” for No Cents to start with the whining and excuses. In an interview with Hot 97 he blamed his label for his second place status in record sales.

Via Allhiphop.com:

“To be honest the process of selling this record hasn’t been fun. I’m happy with the performance, but I’m not happy with the set up. We had conference calls and after we created this plan, nobody actually had a plan.”

50 Cent also issued a warning to Def Jam, claiming he would release a new album every time the label had a big release. “Hypothetically, if I came in under Kanye West, I would release a new album every time Def Jam had a priority. I would release a record verses every one of their top priorities”.

He also said that he was finished with Interscope after the release of his next album, which will fulfill his contractual obligations to the label. “It was the label,” 50 Cent said. “They’re dropping the ball all over the place. I’ll release my next album and then I’m a free agent.”

Next album??? I thought he was retiring if his record sales didn’t measure up to Kanye’s. What a gaylord.

Industry Source-Ye Will Outsell 50 Cent 2:1

Posted by Bossip Staff


Highly placed industry sources tell Bossip that Ye will own No Cents this week and it has nothing to do with DefJam buying their own albums as 50 Cent has claimed. “It’s not even close” says one source.

A Bossip spy went to a Best Buy to pick up Ye’s album today and was told:

“SOLD OUT!, we have 50 cent though’

Word is Kanye West will be performing at the Emmy’s this weekend, will go platinum his first week, and may have the best-selling album this year.


Where Is Her Stylist??

What in Sam’s Lil Bo Peep Hell? Lil Mama hit up the VMA’s red carpet looking like a baby in drag. This is the biggest red carpet f*ck up since Lil Kim’s left breast and zip on weave a few years ago. R. Kelly’s the only one getting off on this look. SMH.

1 Cent Prefers Herpes Over Ciara

Posted by Bossip Staff


1 Cent has been using Ciara for some good album publicity but he got a chance to get what he really wanted, some Hollyweird herpes. He was spotted chillin’ with Paris Hilton at his album release party at Body English at the Hard Rock in Vegas all night.

Ciara was at 1 Cent’s party but got dissed for Herpes Hilton!


Which One Would You Hit??

We must ask, Which One Would You Hit??

Tony Yayo Has a Witness Who Swears He Didn’t Beat Up Lil’ Henchman

Posted by Bossip Staff


A lawyer for G-Unit’s Tony Yayo states there is a solid witness who “swears” he is not guilty for the March 20th assault of a 14 year-old kid. If you missed this back in March here is a recap:

Yayo, whose real name is Marvin Bernard, was charged in March with assault, harassment and endangering the welfare of a child, all misdemeanors. He was accused of hitting the teen, James Rosemond. The boy is the son of Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond, recording executive and manager of a Yayo rival rapper, The Game. The boy accused Yayo of hitting him with his hand, “causing (his) face to strike the door of a building,” which caused him “to have a headache, an earache, and caused substantial pain to (his) face.”

Okay, so having the witness is fine and dandy, but even if Yayo wasn’t the one who punched and slapped that little boy, it’s obvious that someone from the G-Unit camp did. SMH.



1 Cent Vs. Ye: The Real Rolling Stone

Posted by Bossip Staff


We got a few laughs off of the spoof Rolling Stone cover but here’s the real deal. Rolling Stone does a side by side comparison of the two to see how they stacked up. According to Rolling Stone, 50 fell into writer’s block while making “Curtis” and had to move back into his Queens hood to get out songs like “Straight To The Bank” and “Amusement Park”.

He still had problems creating buzz around his singles so he did what he knows how to do best: Started some fake-ass beef with Ye’.

Stuntin For Publicity Continues

Posted by Bossip Staff


With September 11th right around the corner, the fake beef between 1 cent and Kanye becomes entertaining. The two are to be on the cover of Rolling Stone together, and this is the “spoof” cover that Bugs Monkey is carrying around. I’m just waiting for them to say that you can make your own 50 or Kanye stuffed bear at “Build-A-Bear” at your local mall. Click here to listen to Ye’s entire album before it drops.

1 Cent: I am Like a Gorilla

Posted by Bossip Staff


1 Cent is trying to lower expectations for his album sales and he still can’t keep Kanye West out his mouth. He spoke to San Diego’s 93.3 yesterday :

“Its not possible for Kanye to beat me, I don’t know why I said that. Its like the teddy bear vs. the gorilla. Def Jam [West’s label] is going to buy about 200,000 of Kanye’s records. Kanye sucks, I’m going to be honest, he sounds like a robot, he has a robot record.”

Is he saying DefJam is the only label that buys albums? SMH. We don’t think that the song with TimberFAKE is going to save his record sales.

Pictures like this are not going to help either. He does get a few points for honesty, the Gorilla comparison was on point.

Does He Look Like a Homo Thug????

Our staff over here thinks this picture is comedy. 07′ is shaping up as the year of the fake publicity game. The fake Kanye beef, Ciara, what’s next????

Do you fall for this fake stuff and the publicity tricks? Is 1 Cent looking at Lloyd Banks in the audience?

Screamfest went down last night in New York and looks like it was quite the spectacle. Yung Joc freakin girls while making it rain on stage, Ciara sliding on poles, TI, Joe Camel, 1 cent, Diddy, Kanye and more…
