50 cents Testifies His Lifestyle is Fake

50-cent

50 Cent appears in front of the Manhattan Supreme Court to convince the jury that he can’t pay $5 million to Lastonia Leviston.

Last week, 50 Cent shocked the hip hop world when he filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, later explaining that this was move was made out of a desire to “reorganize his financial affairs” than an actual lack of funds. Shortly afterward, we learned that this wouldn’t do anything to stall the ongoing case in which Lastonia Leviston has demanded $5 million from Fif for leaking her sex tape. 50 was at the Manhattan Supreme Court today for these proceedings, and confessed that many of his physical possessions were either rented or borrowed.

Page Six reports that he said that his Lamborghinis, Bentleys and Rolls Royces “were rented” and that he recycled his three gold chains by taking them to the jeweler and having him fashion new designs. “It’s like music videos,” he said, “you see all these fancy cars but everything goes back to the dealership.” Fif claims that he’s only worth $4.4 million, not the $155 mil that Forbes valued him at earlier this year.

What do you think? Is Fif really in financial trouble, or is he trying to get out of paying $5 million?

New Music Tuesday 

future

Rapper Future has released a NSFW track with rapper Drake. The Atlanta rapper and Haitian decedent, has teamed up with Drake on his new single “Where you at”. He recently performed in the Caribbean (USVI), and in his home town of Atlanta.

The new track is fast-paced, with a hollow jingling that is reminiscent of a bottle nearing empty, when you’re slurping the last few drops up. Is that just me? Future kills yet another hook. -Hot New Hip-hop

Jay Z Targeted by Extortionist Over Old Records

According to TMZ, hip-hop superstar Jay Z was targeted in an alleged mult-million dollar extortion plot by a former producer named Chauncey Mahan. Reportedly, Mahan contacted Live Nation last week and claimed he had master recordings from Jay Z and his associates from 1998 through 2002 — recordings that were allegedly assumed to be lost. According to reports, the recordings held an estimated value between $15 million and $20 million. Mahan told Live Nation he had the masters in a Northridge, Calif., storage facility. Jay Z has a partnership with Live Nation.

Mahan reportedly said that he planned to auction the tapes or let Live Nation have them for a $100,000 “storage fee.” The LAPD apprehended Mahan when the producer went to meet with someone supposedly representing Jay Z this past Friday. He was detained, brought in for questioning and the LAPD seized the recordings. A judge will determine ownership. Jay Z’s representatives have filed a grand larceny complaint with the NYPD. The LAPD is also investigating further into the extortion allegations.

Upon hearing about the plot, famed producer Just Blaze tweeted about Chauncey Mahan’s history with Jay Z and Roc-A-Fella Records.

“Chauncey stayed effing up. Big part of the reason Hip and I brought in Guru,” Blaze tweeted. “Ill never forget the day Chaunce stepped to Duro wanting to fight lol. This guy ruined every tape transfer for the Dynasty Album. Duro calls him out on it. He runs over to Soundtrack studios, comes in the room like ‘yo Duro I ain’t no b—-’ takes his jacket off. Me and Duro just looked at him. Blankest of stares.. And went back to work.”

Just Blaze revealed that several mistakes in the mixes on Roc-A-Fella tracks from the early 2000s were Mahan’s fault.
