50 Cent’s House On Fire

Posted in Dope! News with tags on May 30, 2008 by simplydope

These are actual images of 50 Cent‘s house burning to the ground. The fire broke out around 5 a.m Friday morning sending 6 people including 50’s ex Shaniqua Tompkins and his son Marquise to the hospital to treat smoke inhalation.

According to the Dix Hill Fire Department, they do believe that the fire is “definitely suspicious”, and also said that:

“I would say there is a strong possibility that it is suspicious because of the rapid movement of the fire, the volume of the fire that we had upon arrival, and the intensity. When I arrived — and I got there early — the whole first floor and second floor was engulfed, and the home was totally gutted.

“Let’s put it this way,” he continued, “this wasn’t your ordinary fire.”

50 Cent was in Louisiana shooting a film but he released a statement:

“Informed this morning while filming a new motion picture on location in Louisiana, [50 Cent] expressed deep concern over this fire at his property. He is extremely thankful that everyone including his son, Marquise, escaped the burning house safely. He is confident that authorities will be conducting a thorough investigation of the incident and is eager to review their findings.”

All this comes 2 months after 50 went to court to evict Shaniqua Tompkins or to pay $4,500 in rent. Lets pray that this isn’t no Left-Eye mess and Shaniqua, tried to burn down the house cause she was mad, lets just pray it isn’t.

Here are some images of the house before it was burned:

DAMN.

Dope! News: 50 Cent & T.I. Land MTV Reality Shows

Posted in Dope! News with tags , on May 29, 2008 by simplydope

Well it looks like T.I. and 50 will be joining the likes of The Hills and The Real World. That’s right, according to Billboard.com, T.I. and 50 have landed separate reality shows.

Rapper T.I. is turning his legal woes into an eight-episode MTV documentary series. Ish Entertainment will follow the hip-hop star while he performs more than 1,000 hours of community service before starting a one-year prison sentence on weapons charges next spring, according an Atlantic spokesperson.

Cameras have already been shooting for his show and it is scheduled to air after he enters prison in 2009

50 Cent is also coming to MTV with his new reality show. His will be a blend between Ultimate Hustler and The Apprentice:

The untitled 50 Cent project is an elimination reality show following 16 contestants as they compete to learn and master the skills that took 50 Cent from the streets to corporate America. The rapper will whittle down the contestants each week, with one winning a full scholarship to an undergraduate or graduate business program.

I’m glad that the grand prize isn’t money but instead an education. Thats a nice twist.

Dope! News: Kanye, T.I. & 50 Cent Respond to MTV’s 2008 Hottest MC’s In The Game List

Posted in Dope! News with tags , , on May 27, 2008 by simplydope

Well its about time. MTV caught up with three of the MC’s on the 2008 anual edition of the ‘Hottest MC’s In The Game’ List. Heres some of their reactions:

Kanye West:

“They talk about the [Hottest] MC list,” a sweat-soaked West told the audience at the United Center. “I don’t know if y’all heard about this. But I brought the Grammys home for y’all. And now I brought that #1 spot home for y’all. ‘Cause every time I rhyme, I rhyme for y’all. Everything I do, I do for y’all. Chi-Town in this b—h. Chi-Town on the map. Chi-Town King of rap, and Lupe got my back.”

T.I.:

“I didn’t take it personally, you know,” Tip told radio host Ed Lover last week while visiting the personality’s New York radio show. “I think it had a lot to do with the fact that when they was putting the list together, I didn’t have any music out. At the time when they was judging how hot people were, I was on house arrest.”I ain’t trippin’,” Tip added. “They gonna have to do another list. Jeezy is the homie. Everybody else on the list is the homie. I tip my hat and salute everybody else who made the list. I was just with [Andre 3000] last night. He was like, ‘I appreciate it. I appreciate still being acknowledged, you know.’ “

50 Cent:

“I shouldn’t even be on that list,” 50 said. “To be honest, I shouldn’t even be categorized with them [other MCs on the list]. It doesn’t even matter. Look at the people who are actually creating the list. None of them have made a hit record or [borne] the pressure of doing it.”

50 suggested that MTV News get some MCs to help make up the next Hot List.

“Not necessarily the artists now,” he said. “Artists who have previously created hit records, that understand the art form. You got a bunch of people who, because they interviewed rappers, they feel that they know. Because they read XXL or The Source. They don’t understand.”

Me and 50 agree with each other……I don’t think he should be on the list either LOL. Well at least 50 didn’t start screaming “F@#$ MTV” like he did last year. But I do agree that older veterans in the game should be incorporated like he said. T.I. seemed to appreciate being on the list along with Andre 3000. While Kanye was Kanye who could expect less?

Simply Dope! Presents: The New G-Unit!

Posted in Dope! News with tags , , , on April 7, 2008 by simplydope

The New Unit

According to AllHipHop.com Young Buck has officially left G-Unit! We all saw this coming from the way they have been arguing lately to the way that Buck was barely on the Return of the Body Snachers mixtape. But 50 is now making it official that he will no longer be apart of the group, but he still will record for the label.

“You can look at it and see that’s Game [former G-Unit rapper] all the way. I was giving him a chance, giving him the benefit of the doubt [to remain with the group]. You can take this as an official notice right here – pretty much you can say: Young Buck is no longer in the group G-Unit, but signed to G-Unit [Records] as a solo artist,” 50 Cent told DJ Envy, a co-host on the Hot 97 Morning Show with Miss Jones.

Well we all know 50 Cent ain’t stupid! He is not bout to let him get up off the label so he still will be making money off of him. SMH at these rappers being “owned” by other rappers! Its a damn shame
