If anyone knows a good beef when he sees one, it’s 50 Cent.
Fiddy literally laughs at Meek on stage, while likening his beef with Drake to “a schoolyard fight.” Check out the clip from his concert in Sweden above.
You can’t hustle Prodigy.
The Mobb Deep rapper was paying attention to the deal he signed back in the ’90s and now claims Universal Music – then, BMG – cheated him out of over $50K that he made from his solo career.
According to the docs … Prodigy and Mobb Deep’s other member Havoc entered into a contract with Universal Music back in 1995, when it was still BMG. Under the contract, the rap duo handed over half of all profits from future albums and songs, but Prodigy says the deal did NOT cover music he made outside the group.
Prodigy says the label’s continued to skim 50% of royalties from his solo projects, and songs he wrote for other artists. In all he’s lost $57,489, according to the suit.
Idris Elba continues to broaden his horizons.
The hunky Beasts of No Nation actor will join Madonna on part of her Rebel Heart tour. Idris is not only an actor, he raps, DJs, and produces music, and we’re betting he’ll do one hell of a job opening for Madge. He will help out during Madonna’s Tuesday stop at Berlin’s Mercedes-Benz Arena.
Big Driis x Madge? We’re there.
Madonna isn’t the only music queen doing her thing in 2015.
Mariah Carey is putting her mic down for a second to focus on her acting career – sort of. Vulture reports that the mom to two will join Warner Bros.’ LEGO Batman movie as the voice of Commissioner Gordon…or Gotham’s Mayor.
She joins Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, and Zach Galifianakis, among others. Deadline wrote early Monday morning that Carey was going to voice the character of Commissioner Gordon, but THR has since said otherwise, noting she’ll actually take a turn as Gotham’s mayor. The city’s political leader has taken on different forms over the years — most recently as Richard Kind’s corrupt mob-puppet Aubrey James in Fox’s Gotham.
Whichever project Mariah’s voice touches turns to gold.
It’s a dark, dank Tuesday, but this should brighten things up.
Finding Dory is coming to a theater near you on June 17th of next year, and we’ve got a super cute trailer to enjoy in the meantime.
Ellen DeGeneres — who voices the character of Dory — first shared the clip Tuesday on her talk show’s video page. It begins with Dory talking and swimming in her sleep, waking up Nemo and Marlin (Albert Brooks) in the process. When she wakes up, she remembers something (“That’s not possible, is it?” she asks) that sets her on a mission to find her family.
Check out the clip just above.
