50 drops off his latest single tonight that will likely land on the upcoming Street King Immortal album. Take a listen to “9 Shots” below.
50 Cent appeared in court yesterday in New York to testify in a lawsuit about a sex tape he allegedly posted online of Rick Ross’ former girlfriend, Lastonia Leviston. After filing for bankruptcy last week, Curtis Jackson testified that he is not as wealthy as he appears to be. Forbes estimated the rapper’s fortune to be about $155 million in May but Jackson’s lawyer said in court Tuesday that his client’s worth is $4.4 million.
According to New York Daily News, 50 Cent explained in court that while his social-media accounts may be filled with flashy photos, “I take the jewelry and the cars back to the stores.” So it seems the flashy lifestyle of 50 Cent is all an act which will make it a problem to pay Leviston the $5 million for making the sex tape public.
According to the Wall Street Journal, 50 Cent has officially filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The petition 50 and his lawyer filed said that his assets and debt were within the $10 million to $50 million range. The file for bankruptcy came just three days after 50 was ordered to pay $5 million to Lastonia Leviston (Rick Ross’ baby momma) for leaking a sex tape of her and her boyfriend.
However this does not mean Fifty is broke as a statement was released:
The filing allows Mr. Jackson to reorganize his financial affairs, as he addresses various professional liabilities and takes steps to position the future of his various business interests,” says William A. Brewer III, partner at Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors, and counsel to Mr. Jackson, in a statement to Billboard. “Mr. Jackson’s business interests will continue unaffected in the ordinary course during the pendency of the chapter 11 case. This filing for personal bankruptcy protection permits Mr. Jackson to continue his involvement with various business interests and continue his work as an entertainer, while he pursues an orderly reorganization of his financial affairs.
After giving us a visual for “Doo Doo” yesterday, Troy Ave returns with the latest single from his upcoming album, Major Without A Deal. Take a listen to the 50 Cent-assisted “Bang Bang” after the jump and purchase a copy over at iTunes.
50 Cent is back with a new single that includes some extra help from 2 Chainz, Jeremih and T.I. called “Get Low” that is going to have to hold us over until Street King Immortal finally drops.
Young Buck recently dropped his Before The Beast project but that doesn’t stop him from giving us another new track. This time he links with 50 Cent and Troy Ave to create “Drug Money”, which can be heard below.
Young Buck and his G-Unit comrades give us a visual for the latest single from the crew, “Bring My Bottles.” Watch it after the jump and let’s hope that The Beast Is G-Unit comes sooner than later.
Buck, 50 and Yayo team up to bring us a new joint named “Bring My Bottles” and produced by Swiff D. Young Buck has been dropping some heat lately.
Take a listen after the jump.
