Rapper 50 CENT has vowed to continue putting out mixtapes for free, despite his label boss and close pal EMINEM advising him to stop doing so. The Candy Shop hitmaker has released three mixtapes in the last six months, and recently let fans download his latest freestyles on The Elephant In The Room mixtape from his website free of charge. But Shady Records CEO Eminem doesn't approve of 50's marketing methods. 50 tells, "They think I'm crazy. Sometimes (Eminem) misses why I put it out. He goes, 'Why did you put it out?' "But I can't be as hot as I'm gonna be if I don't play around. I gotta spar before I go fight the champ. That's my concept of it. If I don't go out and make material and lock in (get fans' response to his music), I'm not gonna make the best possible material for the next (official) project."


EMINEM's mother is facing legal action over the revenue from her memoirs about the rap superstar, after a man purporting to have helped put the book together accused her of cutting him out of the profits.
Neal Alpert alleges Debbie Nelson was under contract with him in November 2005, when she agreed to pen My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem: Setting The Record Straight On My Life As Eminem's Mother, under his guidance as her manager and agent. Eminem's real name is Marshall Mathers III.
But, in legal papers filed in an Oakland County Circuit Court this week (begs07Apr08), Alpert claims she went behind his back and wrote the book with co-author Annette Witheridge and publisher Watson, Little, Ltd. - effectively cutting him out of a deal which would have seen him receive 25 per cent of the book's total earnings.
The book, which hit store shelves in the U.K. last year (07), has sold more than 100,000 copies to date, but Alpert claims he has yet to receive a pay cheque for his work.
And he is now suing for breach of contract.
Alpert's lawyer, Drew Norton, says, "As her agent, he was entitled to a percentage of profits but hasn't seen a dime."

Luxury condo

The Palms Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada recently opened the tower doors to the Palms Place and its first luxury condo residents, reports the Las Vegas Business Press.

Among the buyers of some of these suites include Eminem, wrestler Hulk Hogan, and singer Jessica Simpson.

The local paper said that the first residents of Palms Place were scheduled to move into their luxury condos last week.


The Palms Place is a 599-unit tower that boasts a mix of 600-square-foot studio units and 1,200-square-foot one-bedroom suites, while the more exclusive clients own penthouses -- 21 in all -- on the top four floors.

The condos are non-gaming towers, and include amenities, such as restaurants and the spa, which will open during the next few months.

Fighting fit

Slim Shady fans will be relieved to discover he’s back in the studio, working out and getting together his new album after a health scare at the beginning of this year.

Eminem was pictured over Christmas looking ill and overweight as he struggled against a mystery virus. Even his long-lost mum came out saying she was worried for him (although she was promoting a book about him at the time).

Slim Shady fans will be relieved to discover he’s back in the studio, working out and getting together his new album after a health scare at the beginning of this year.

Eminem was pictured over Christmas looking ill and overweight as he struggled against a mystery virus. Even his long-lost mum came out saying she was worried for him (although she was promoting a book about him at the time).

The rapper suffered from pneumonia but sources close to the star say he is fighting back and recording new tracks with big studio pal Dr Dre.

An insider told the New York Post: ‘He has been cutting new tracks with Dr. Dre. They still have a ways to go, but so far it's really good.’

One of his reps confirms he is also fighting the flab: ‘He's always in the studio and has worked with a trainer before.’

The end of last year was a tricky time for the wonder boy of rap. Ill health and a tell-all biography from his mum, followed by news she was very ill too caused considerable strain.

Hip hop music

Hip hop music is a style of popular music. It is usually composed of two elements: rapping (also known as emceeing) and DJing. When combined with breakdancing and graffiti art, these are the four components of hip hop, a cultural movement which began in New York City in the 1970s, predominantly by African Americans and Latinos. The term rap music is sometimes used synonymously with hip hop music, though it is also used to refer specifically to the practice of rapping.

Typically, hip hop music consists of one or more rappers who chant semi-autobiographic tales, often relating to a fictionalized counterpart, in an intensely rhythmic lyrical form, making abundant use of techniques like assonance, alliteration, and rhyme. Though rap may be performed a cappella, it is more common for the rapper(s) to be accompanied by a DJ or a live band providing an appropriate beat. This beat is often from the percussion of a different song, usually rock, funk, or soul, and is sometimes sampled. In addition to the beat, other sounds are often sampled, synthesized, or performed. Though rap is usually an integral component of hip hop music, instrumental and non-rap Electro acts such as Planet Patrol are also defined as hip hop music groups.

Hip hop arose in New York City when DJs began isolating the percussion break from funk or disco songs. The role of the emcee (MC) arose to introduce the DJ and the music, and to keep the audience excited. The MCs began by speaking between songs, giving exhortations to dance, greetings to audience members, jokes and anecdotes. Eventually, this practice came to be more stylized, and was known as rapping. By 1979, hip hop had become a commercially recorded music genre, and began to enter the American mainstream. It also began its spread across the world. In the 1990s, a form called gangsta rap became a major part of American music, causing significant controversy over lyrics which were perceived as promoting violence, promiscuity, drug use and misogyny. Nevertheless, by the beginning of the 2000s, hip hop was a staple of popular music charts and was being performed in many styles across the world.
