Over the past weekend I had the opportunity to kick it with the legendary Ice Cube and homie Mike Bigga formally Killer Mike, as they performed at the SOLD-OUT Center Stage Saturday night. The place was explosive as they hit the scene.

Mike Bigga definitely got the crowd going for the highly anticipated Ice Cube debut. I have to admit this is my first time seeing Ice Cube so I was super excited, and I have to say his fans go extra hard for him.

SerenaWilliam-todayshows

Great news to tell yall about Serena Williams. Williams says that her recent blood clots discovered in her lungs was “the scariest moment in my life” but she’s OK . The 13-time Grand Slam champion said on NBC’s “Today” show Wednesday that she hopes to return to tennis this summer after recovering from a recent pulmonary embolism followed by a hematoma.

Williams spoke from Los Angeles, saying she hasn’t left the house much since going to the hospital on Feb. 18 when she said she “couldn’t breathe.” Williams said she had a CT scan of her lungs and they “found several blood clots.” Her treatment involved self-injecting blood thinners. As a result, she developed a hematoma in her stomach that grew to the size of “a grapefruit” and it was surgically removed.

50centmovie_preview-1

Do yall remember when 50 Cent lost all that weight and look like he was dying, for a movie role? Well, the homie Necolebitchie is reporting that the unofficial trailer for that very film, Things Fall Apart, directed by and starring Mario Van Peebles, as well as Lynn Whitfield and Ray Liotta, has been released after it’s premiere this weekend at the Miami International Film Festival.

In the movie, Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson plays University of Michigan football player Deon Barnes, an NFL hopeful whose career plans are deferred by a cancer diagnosis. 50 reportedly dropped close to 60 pounds for the role, and when photos were released months ago of the dramatic weight loss, the emaciated 50 Cent was the ridicule of jokes from the public.

Here’s the trailer tell me what you think? READ MORE
