Over the weekend, one of my loyal readers emailed me audio of Power 105′s The Breakfast Club poking fun at boxer Floyd Mayweather’s alleged illiteracy. It wasn’t easy ignoring the trending topic of 50 Cent’s ignorant public humiliation of Mayweather on social media platform Twitter.com. But I managed to ignore it — until I received emails from loyal readers who gave me a different perspective on the ignorance.
For instance, did you know that nearly half of all black people can’t read? The irony is that half of the people who laughed at Mayweather can’t read above a 4th grade level themselves.
Fading rapper 50 Cent performed live on Good Morning America this morning to promote Animal Ambition, his first album in five years. He was joined on stage by R&B singers Trey Songz and Joe (not pictured).
Washed up rapper 50 Cent threw out the ceremonial first pitch at a recent NY Mets game. Fiddy received tips on how to throw prior to taking the mound. But his first pitch ended up missing the mark wide to the outside. It can’t be that hard to throw a ball in the vicinity of home plate, can it?
The deadbeat dad offered up a lame excuse for his girly pitch: “That was Curtis Jackson. I don’t even like when he comes around,” he joked. “50 Cent is the best. Curtis Jackson – I don’t even know what’s the matter with him.”
Watch the hijinks after the break.
Prize fighter Floyd Mayweather, Jr. attended a pre-Halloween party thrown by socialite Daphne Joy, left, at the Supperclub in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Rapper 50 Cent took a plea deal in a much-publicized domestic violence case involving Daphne. He was sentenced to 3 years’ probation with 30 days’ community service. 50 Cent was charged with kicking and punching the mother-of-one and damaging property. The reason for the violence was never fully explained, but insiders whisper that Fiddy became enraged when he found out he was not the father of Daphne’s child. 50 reportedly paid generous child support and rent for a luxury condo for Daphne and her kid. Also in attendance at the party was rapper Jim Jones.
Volatile rapper 50 Cent is due in court today to answer to a domestic abuse charge. Fiddy was arrested in June and charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend and trashing her Toluca Lake condo. Fortunately for loose change, he has one less thing to worry about: he is not the father of his ex-girlfriend’s son.
Radar Online has obtained chilling text messages that rapper 50 Cent sent to his 16-year-old son Marquise in the weeks before he was charged with assaulting his youngest son’s mother.
Apparently 50 Cent was outraged after the lad failed to open the door during a custody visit in Atlanta. The shocking text messages reveal the dysfunctional nature of communications between the mentally unbalanced rapper and his son.
