It’s been a month since 50 Cent was part of the best feel-good story of the cryptocurrency boom. Following reports that the hip-hop star had earned about $7.8 million worth of bitcoin from sales of an otherwise forgotten album, he seemed to confirm the news on Instagram. But when pressed in bankruptcy court, Fiddy…
50 Cent has a way of pulling money out of thin air by making prescient early investments. Though he hasn’t been doing so great lately, he’s still got some tricks up his sleeve. It turns out he accepted Bitcoin payments for his 2014 album Animal Ambition and never cashed them out. Suddenly, he’s richer than he…
The rapper/actor also known as Curtis Jackson may be cooking up an action show that sounds a whole lot like Luke Cage, but his four-year-old son wanted his daddy to turn into a DC Comics hero for his birthday party. So Fiddy became Cyborg. Cue the white noise blasters.
Rapper turned TV producer Curtis Jackson, a.k.a. 50 Cent, has got a new superhero TV show coming to Starz. It’s called Tomorrow, Today and it stars a hero that sounds almost exactly like Luke Cage, but is definitely not Luke Cage, since Netflix is premiering an actual Luke Cage TV series in just a couple of months.
Sensors are everywhere—in our phones, watches, and shoes. And now our earphones, too. The SMS BioSport heart rate-sensing earbuds aim to be the audio companion of choice for all you marathon runners, mountain bikers, and other hardcore athlete types who need to know your beats per minute on a daily basis.
Off the 2007 album Curtis, this song is an oldie, but a goodie. Since we met with 50 Cent last week as he was hawking his #SMSAUDIO headphones at CES, and the song says freaking tech-nol-o-gy in the title, well there's your tech peg, nerds.
I became aware of 50 Cent's favorite Instagram hashtag before the headphones they're promoting. A snapshot of a statue orgy? #SMSAudio. A picture of Claire Huxtable? #SMSAudio. Everything #SMSAudio, all of the time. Curtis Jackson knows a thing or two about social engagement.
Dr. Dre decided to endorse expensive headphones. Despite not being that great, they're becoming sidewalk ubiquitous. Ergo, 50 Cent (aka Curtis Jackson, aka known purveyor of rap and B-movies and Vitamin Water), isn't going to be left out. We chatted with Curtis about his new cans, Twitter, and women.
If you won't listen to headphones unblessed by a rapper's licensing deal—and neither Dre nor Ludacris are good enough for you—look to 50 Cent. The former rapper turned Vitamin Water kingpin's newest headphone is here.
It's been ages since I've mentioned Dre and 50 Cent in the same breath, but 50's new SYNC headphones remind me that he was once one of his proteges. These cans are pretty much his answer to the Beats by Dre headphones.
Does the world really need another URL shortener? One backed by Lady Gaga, 50 Cent and Pepsi, at that? One that's run by a CEO described almost entirely by the fact that he lives on New York's hipster-laden LES (Lower-East Side)?
The Terminator saga continues to swagger through pop culture, like an indestructible time-traveling robot. Here's the new CD cover for Before I Self Destruct by 50 Cent. What do you think: Is he a better Terminator than Summer Glau?
Recording artist and bling connoisseur 50 Cent—aka Puffy— has released a new MP3 Watch through his recording label G-Unit. The watch is available in 256MB and 512MB with prices beginning at $486. Besides the name, nothing makes this MP3 watch any special worth the inflated price tag. I also assure you that Fiddy…
