Soak up some game from 50 Cent discussing some real shit.

Entrepreneur and legendary Queens rapper, 50 Cent finally made his way to the Hot 97 Morning Show. Obviously there to promote his forthcoming Animal Ambition album as well as the upcoming Starz TV series, Power, Fiddy was questioned the state of NY hip-hop. Following his run 10 years ago with Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and The Massacre (both of which went Diamond worldwide), 50 explained his entrance into the game being blackballed and other artists not working with him initially forcing him to distance himself from the rest of the game.

That would segue into another elephant in the room regarding his current stance with Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks revealing he wanted the pair to use his momentum to build their own careers. Although he didn’t have anything bad to say about the two personally, he opened up about his childhood friend Yayo still appearing in music videos that were recently shot after Tony’s social media comments about the state of G-Unit. 50 would go onto also discuss Summer Jam and why its significant for him to still be part of the biggest hip-hop event of the year; especially this year with Nas touching the same stage.

Continue after the jump, to soak up more game from Fif discussing the infamous plane ride with him and Ja Rule, comparing his beef with Rick Ross to Nas and JAY Z, and a few uncomfortable discussions with street life that Hot 97 wasn’t ready for.

5 Things We Learned From Pharrell’s Interview With Oprah

Oprah Prime, Pharrell Williams

Pharrell started to elevate his position as one of the most influential artists in the industry while creating some of the hottest tracks of 2013. The high was carried over into 2014, making his way to Saturday Night Live, as well as the Oscars where he was nominated for “Best Original Song” and donned the infamous Buffalo hat. He also got the cover of Billboard and GQ, dropped one of the most positive albums of the year with G I R L featuring the worldwide, self-produced hit “Happy.” The man who doesn’t seem to age, has also found a way to make timeless music.

Recently, the Virginia native sat down with Oprah for an extremely intimate and in-depth interview that found him revealing knowledge that’s not only pertinent to the innovative music he creates, but genuine to life situations that everyone can relate to. Pharrell’s music has given us a tremendous amount of enjoyment and inspiration, so it comes as no surprise that he was able to teach us a thing or two in his latest interview.

If you haven’t watched Skateboard P on Oprah Prime, check out what we soaked up and learned from him during his conversation, because he dropped gems.

Sofia Vergara for Women’s Health Magazine

sofiavergaraBTS
Raw, no pull out.

We might be taking it really far back with this one, but Latino folks around our age might remember catching Sofia Vergara on Fuera De Serie every Saturday on Univision. Who knows, maybe we were the only ones watching? Younger Sofia was looking GOOD AS HELL in those days, though. The show centered around Sofia and Fernando Fiore traveling to the most exotic locations and soaking up the culture there. Why would we miss Sofia Vergara and that body when she was in bikinis half the time?

Not much has changed since then and she’s still looking bad, gracing the cover of May’s Women’s Health Magazine. We actually saw it at the store and couldn’t help but to peek and see what’s good. We know most of you recognize her as Gloria from Modern Family, but she’ll always be that young hot Colombian to us.

Check out photos and behind-the-scenes footage from her spread below.

Donald Trump Is Apparently Very Serious About Buying The Buffalo Bills

vince

Donald Trump has always been a fan of sports, hence the picture above of him enjoying WrestleMania 23, but it appears now he wants to that that love to the next level. In a statement released, Trump said “I’m going to give it my best shot,” when he was asked about the prospect of buying the Buffalo Bills. Trump said that he is very interested in the prospect of owning the Bills, and reassured fans that he was not looking to move the team. So far the rumored destinations of cities the Bills to be moved to were Los Angeles and Toronto. Toronto would actually make the most since, as it would be an easy transition, and would also serve as the first Canadian NFL team.

If you recall, back in the 80′s Trump owned an USFL team, and was one of the major reasons why the league was successful. Because of that and other factors, if Trump were to make a bid for the Bills, it seems like other NFL owners would be ok with it. We will continue to update this story as it progresses.

Click image to watch Mack Wilds “Henny (Remix)” music video

If you gave Mack Wilds‘ album New York: A Love Story a spin, you would undoubtedly have heard the influence of the ’90s throughout the GRAMMY Award nominated project. For “Henny,” he took original production from Havoc on “Burn” and put that R&B twist to it, smoothing it out for the new age. For the remix, he went vintage Bad Boy with the vibe, plus got some NY Hip-Hop legends to join him for the remix. Brooklyn, The Bronx and Queens are all in the building. Oh yeah, Staten Island too. We see you Mack.

Pour some of that Hennessy on the rocks and let this one slap out.

Click image to watch “The Drop” film trailer

Originally titled Animal Rescue, Michaël R. Roskam’s upcoming crime-drama The Drop could be one of the standouts this year in terms of writing, with Dennis Lehane taking charge of the storyline, who has worked on television shows such as The Wire and Boardwalk Empire and movies like Shuttler Island and Gone Baby Gone.

Taking place in Brooklyn, the cast includes the familiar names of Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace, with the film being James Gandolfini’s last appearance on screen after passing away last year. The plot centers around an area of criminals and mostly the events that a bartender and his cousin get themselves into, following a robbery gone askew and the trials that they must encounter afterwards.

The film will be available in theaters on September 19th.

Doc Rivers’ “Face-to-Face” ESPN Interview

dca
Doc Rivers looking to turn the city of Los Angeles around with potential NBA title this June.

Before the NBA season began, we picked the Los Angeles Clippers to win the Western Conference this May. While the team struggled early on with finding themselves collectively, a new coach and added role players; they’ve went on to have the 3rd best overall record in a very competitive conference. Los Angeles also still has a chance to finish ahead of the Oklahoma City Thunder if they win their final two back-to-back games, due to having a better overall conference record (season series 2-2). ESPN’s Hannah Storm made her way over to Doc River’s Los Angeles pad, where the two took an initial brief tour of his house.

Arriving in Los Angeles, Doc’s first agenda was hiding the Lakers banners to motivate the team in having their own. In comparison to his tenure in Boston, Rivers reveals giving complete trust to Chris Paul’s on-court decision making, learning from past experiences. Things closed out with Doc having an initial questionable impression on Blake Griffin’s work ethic, seeing him in various commercials and media appearances every week. Upon arriving in SoCal, Doc soon gained an immediate respect for Blake seeing him in the practice gym every day of the summer, which has enabled him to be part of the discussions this year with LeBron James and Kevin Durant for league MVP candidacy. Continue below to watch more of the conversation.
