Just when you think 50 Cent is solely focused on television, he jumps back in his petty bag. Daphne Joy, his child’s mother, has responded to a wisecrack he made speculating she is Diddy’s new flame.

As spotted on Complex the G-Unit Records founder is back to doing the most on social media. On Tuesday, Sept. 28 he posted a photo of him and his son Sire, wearing matching yellow sunglasses looking askew. “oh sh*t, that’s your mommy over there with Puffy. LOL😆😆😆 Remember what i told you the other day, these b!tche’s be crazy. SMH” his caption read.

Naturally the post quickly went viral and landed on Daphne Joy’s radar and it seemed like she didn’t take kindly to the joke. “Please stop doing this to me. I never bother you and I’m an outstanding mother to our son. Can we please just focus on that. Please,” she wrote in the comments section. 50’s jab seems to be a direct response to her being spotted at Diddy’s iHeartRadio Music Festival performance on Saturday, Sept. 24.

She went into further detail in a separate post on why she finds the allegations to be messy. “I hate speaking about my private life on social media. But I feel it needs to be addressed,” she wrote. “I’m so tired of my narrative being what it is. I was in a two-year relationship 10+ years ago, and out of the relationship, God blessed me with a beautiful, healthy baby boy. Although my child’s father and I parted ways, I shifted my focus on my son’s well-being emotionally, spiritually, and everything in between.”

50 dated model Daphne Joy and had his second son, Sire Jackson, with her, on Sept. 1, 2012. Diddy has yet to comment on the matter.

Coolio, a veteran West Coast rapper who found fame in the 1990s, has reportedly died of unknown causes. As the story is still developing, many on social media are offering up tributes for the West Coast artist as the news continues to develop.

Coolio, real name Artis Leon Ivey Jr., was a member of the West Coast collective, WC and the Maad Circle, consisting of lead rapper WC, Big Gee, and DJ Crazy Toones, Coolio’s brother, who passed away from a heart attack in 2017 at the age of 45.

According to TMZ, Coolio passed away Wednesday (September 28) while visiting a friend of his per the account of his manager. After entering a restroom at the home, Ivey was later found laying on the floor unresponsive.

Coolio was born August 1, 1963, in Monessen, Pa., according to a Wikipedia entry, and took up residence in Compton, Calif. After a stint at Compton Community College, he eventually began his rap career in the late 1980s and then joined WC and the Maad Circle before breaking out on his own as a solo act

Coolio was a beloved figure known for his signature braids and outsized personality. His biggest hit was “Gangsta’s Paradise,” which was featured in the film Dangerous Minds and also netted him a Grammy Award. Another big hit for Coolio was the G-Funk classic “Fantastic Voyage,” released in 1994 via Tommy Boy Records.

Throughout the mid-1990s and much of the early 2000s, Coolio found a niche as an actor appearing in several movie and television roles, and he also provided the theme song to the Nickelodeon series, Kenan & Kel. As an actor, Coolio notched over 100 credits along with other achievements. He also recently performed at the Riot Fest in Chicago, Ill. alongside Ice Cube and others.

Rest Powerfully in peace in that Gangsta’s Paradise, Coolio.

Safaree Is STRAIIIIGGHHTTTT Getting Clowned On Twitter After Hitting Himself With A Chair 

Safaree Clowned On Twitter After Epic Chair Fail On LHHATL

Source: @PhotosByBeanz/ Safaree

Safaree tried to make a scene on a recent episode of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta but, in the process, became the butt of the joke.

Nicki Minaj and Erica Mena’s ex made a fool of himself on the latest episode of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. In a scene featuring himself, Rich Dollaz, Scrappy Mendeecees, Kirk Frost, and some other guy, forgive us, it’s been a while since we tuned in, Safaree had Twitter in stitches for an epic fail involving himself and a chair he tried to throw in frustration.

Spotted on Complex, the reality star got BIG MAD after arguing with his fellow LHHATL co-stars about his co-parenting situation with Erica Mena. In the scene, Safaree can be seen “playing cards” before losing his cool because they wouldn’t let up on the case.

Safaree gets up in frustration, throws the chair, and instead of launching ahead of himself, it hilariously hits him in the back of his head.

Is Safaree The Daddy?

Per XXL, Safaree lost his cool after he wondered if he was the father of one of the children he had with Erica Mena. “I’m like, why the baby ain’t got my goatee yet,” Safaree joked. “Where his muscles at? You know what I’m saying?”

Mendeecees Harris followed that up by joking that Rich Dollaz could possibly be the child’s father because he doesn’t have a goatee.

Nicki Minaj’s “ghostwriter” and Erica Mena welcomed their second child shortly after the couple filed for divorce. Mena even went as far as to allege that Safaree was not present for the birth of the seed. Safaree denied being a “deadbeat” dad.

In a Twitter post he shared last year, he wrote, “I don’t want a Treat for being with my kids but don’t act like I’m not with my kids becuz y’all don’t see it,” he wrote on Twitter last year. “My kids live in a mansion, and that’s because of me! I’m with them all the time!

You can peep the hilarious Twitter reactions to the scene in the gallery below.

Pusha T Links Up With Arby’s To Drop New McDonald’s Diss Track ‘Rib Roast’

If we’ve learned anything about Pusha T it’s that he wants all the smoke whether it’s out in these streets or all up in the kitchen, and McDonald’s ’bout to find out they done pissed off the wrong one.

Continuing to beef with Ronald McDonald and the Mickey D’s crew via Arby‘s (hella random), Pusha T has released a new diss track against the burger franchise and he’s cooking them with all the spices he has in his pantry. Taking aim at the hugely popular McRib sandwich (it really does have a cult following), Pusha let off bars against Arby’s competition while praising Arby’s Rib Roast joint saying, “They call me when it’s time to do damage / When the quality ain’t up to my standards / That McRib falls below average, replaced by the country-style Arby’s Rib Sandwich (Wooo!)…”

Looks like Pusha T is still lowkey tight The Clipse never got their justdo over creating McDonald’s “I’m Lovin’ It” campaign jingle back in the day.

According to Hypebeast, Arby’s is looking to knock McDonalds and any other franchise out the box as they look to total fast-food restaurant domination.

We are on a mission to call out weak sandwiches of questionable quality, and there is no other product that can compare to our REAL Country-Style Rib Sandwich or is worthy of Pusha T’s praise,” Jim Taylor, President of Arby’s, said in a statement. “We’ve spent years perfecting the intricate smoked rib flavors and are proud to have Pusha remind people why Arby’s has the meats – and smokes the competition.”

“Rap Album of the year. Sandwich of the year. Simple as that — we both give you quality straight from the kitchen!” King Push added. “I love the work I’ve been doing with Arby’s — this time around we have to chef up something different and give everyone quality country inspired merch to go along with the rib sandwich.”

Aside from the diss track, new merchandise featuring Arby’s menu items has dropped and includes a custom Pusha T T-shirt, a jacket with Arby’s Ten Gallon Hat logo, a sandwich bolo tie, a trucker hat and bandana.

Only thing left to wonder now is if McDonalds “takes it there” and hires Drake to clap back at Arby’s for being so disrespectful. Now that’ll be some wild and unexpected beef to throw on the grill.

Check out Pusha T clapping at McDonald’s below and let us know your thoughts on this hilarious situation.

50 Cent Series ‘Hip Hop Homicides’ To Debut In November

A new series that will explore the epidemic of violence that has attached itself to Hip-Hop is set to hit the airwaves in November, with 50 Cent and Mona Scott-Young as executive producers.
The new series, Hip-Hop Homicides, announced its premiere date on Wednesday (Sept. 28), in a press release. The series will air on WeTV, with Van Lathan as the host. 50 Cent will be an executive producer through his G-Unit Film and Television company, and Scott-Young will do the same through her Monami Productions along with Stephanie R. Gayle and Michael Lang. Both companies will be working in tandem with Lionsgate Television, who will physically distribute the series.

The first episode will focus on the life and tragic death of Pop Smoke, who was gunned down in a “robbery gone wrong” with unresolved factors while staying at an upscale residence in Hollywood Hills, California in 2021. 50 Cent will be an active part of that episode by sitting down for an interview, discussing his connection with the Brooklyn rapper as his mentor.

“G-Unit Film and Television has thrived by telling real stories. As I continue to grow my current slate, premium non-scripted programming will be a major focus. Hip-Hop loves things that are damaged. This series will shed light on the artists that didn’t make it through the struggle,” 50 Cent said in a statement regarding the series in January.

“50 and I created this show in response to the disturbing number of murders in Hip-Hop. With this boots-on-the-ground investigative series, we will look to closely examine and explore leads surrounding these cases with the hope of finally providing loved ones with answers,” Scott-Young said when the series was first announced. Vanessa Satten and Anthony Wilson will also serve as executive producers.

Hip-Hop Homicides will air on Thursday, Nov. 3 on WeTV at 9 p.m. then air every Monday afterward. The episodes will also be available on the ALLBLK streaming service after their WeTV premiere. Future episodes will feature insight from other notable figures in Hip-Hop which include Juvenile, Vic Mensa, Mannie Fresh, and French Montana among others.

Hugh Jackman To Return As Wolverine In ‘Deadpool 3’ 

Hugh Jackman Announces Broadway To Oz concert tour in Australia

It’s finally happening!

After years of teasing a possible Deadpool and Wolverine crossover film, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds shocked comic book fans yesterday, (Sept. 27) when he announced that Hugh Jackman would be reprising his role as Logan/Wolverine in the third installment of Deadpool. In a comedic video posted on his official Twitter page, Ryan Reynolds informed his fans that he was “working hard” on Deadpool 3 but ultimately came up with “nothing.”

That’s when the shocker came. With Hugh Jackman walking into the scene in the background, Ryan asked “Hey Hugh, you wanna play Wolverine one more time?” to which Jackman plainly responded “Yeah. Sure, Ryan.”

And with that the internet went nuts.

Though there had been rumors that a Deadpool/Wolverine film would actually be a budding road trip kind of affair, we’re not sure that’s the plan for now. Also with Marvel Studios planning on having the next Deadpool film be his official introduction into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you have to wonder if that means that Jackman will continue playing Wolverine for the MCU or if this is just a one-off before he officially retires his adamantium claws.

That being said, many wonder how Jackman can return as Wolverine given what transpired at the end of 2017’s Logan which saw the death of Wolverine. Y’all have to remember, that particular film was set way into the future, so technically Wolverine is still alive and kicking. How Deadpool ends up in the MCU by the end of this film, is the real question.

Regardless of how things play out, the good news is that Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige has no plans on watering down the Deadpool franchise and keep the films in R-Rated territory going forward.

Check out Ryan Reynolds comedic announcement below and let us know if you’ll be patiently waiting for Deadpool 3 when it hits theaters in 2025.

‘Stranger Things’ Star Caleb McLaughlin Talks About Dealing With Racist Fans 

Stranger Things 4 x Creel House

When Stranger Things was released to Netflix in 2016, the sci-fi show had viewers in a chokehold. The series, which centered around young teens and their journey through a mysterious underworld, was an instant hit. But, for one star, even at 14 years old, he knew that his experience wasn’t the same as his co-stars.

Caleb McLaughlin plays Lucas Sinclair on the hit show and he told an audience at Heroes Comic Con Belgium that he experienced racism very early on. “It definitely took a toll on me as a younger kid,” he said. “My very first Comic-Con, some people didn’t stand in my line because I was Black. Some people told me, ‘Oh I didn’t want to be in your line because you were mean to Eleven [Millie Bobby Brown].’”

According to Variety, McLaughlin continued, “Even now some people don’t follow me or don’t support me because I’m Black. Sometimes overseas you feel the racism, you feel the bigotry. Sometimes it’s hard to talk about and for people to understand, but when I was younger it definitely affected me a lot.”

McLaughlin, who also appeared in The New Edition Story, also questioned why he was the least popular on social media garnering the least amount of followers on sites like Instagram and Twitter. 

The teenager is not the only Black star who has dealt with blatant racism for their media roles. This year, Black stars of House of the Dragon, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, and Star Wars, have all faced relentless racism, threats, harassment and abuse online. The height of online abuse against Black actors definitely came in recent weeks after the release of the trailer featuring Halle Bailey as The Little Mermaid

“My parents had to be like, ‘It’s a sad truth, but it’s because you’re the Black child on the show…’ Because I was born with this beautiful chocolate skin, I’m not loved,” he added. “But that’s why with my platform I want to spread positivity and love because I do not give hate back to people who give hate to me.”

‘Blade’ Director Bassam Tariq Steps Down As Executive Producer

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe got blindsided as the director of the much-anticipated Blade movie is stepping down from the project before filming.
According to reports, Bassam Tariq has stepped down as director of the movie with Oscar winner Mahershala Ali in the title role. Tariq confirmed the move in a statement released on Tuesday (Sept. 27).

“It’s been an honor working with the wonderful folks at Marvel. We were able to put together a killer cast and crew. Eager to see where the next director takes the film,” he wrote. “Due to continued shifts in our production schedule, Bassam is no longer moving forward as director of Blade but will remain an executive producer on the film,” Marvel said in a statement to the press. “We appreciate Bassam’s talent and all the work he’s done getting Blade to where it is.”

There was no further word from Marvel Studios on whom they were eying to take over the director’s chair, but sources close to the situation have confirmed that there is already a search underway. The move is still a surprise, as Blade has already gone through a few script rewrites, overseen by Beau DeMayo. DeMayo has previously worked on Netflix’s The Witcher, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, and another Marvel series, Moon Knight. The original script was written by Stacy Osei-Kuffour, who was a writer for the Watchmen series on HBO. Filming for Blade has been scheduled to begin in November in Atlanta, Georgia.

The sudden change in director isn’t the first time for Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios. Scott Derrickson, who previously helmed the first Doctor Strange movie, backed out of directing its sequel, Doctor Strange and The Multiverse of Madness, four months before shooting began. Sam Raimi took over afterward. Jon Watts, who was enlisted as director for Disney’s reboot of Fantastic Four, expected in November 2024, stepped down from the role over the summer.

Blade is scheduled for release on Nov. 3rd, 2023. In addition to Ali, the film will also star the veteran actor Delroy Lindo and Aaron Pierce.
