50 Cent Praised Kevin Durant For Making Millions Of Coinbase Investment

50 Cent is proud of Kevin Durant for making some serious bucks off his investment in Coinbase.

With digital currency exchange, Coinbase going public on Wednesday (April 15), a round of multimillionaires and billionaires are being created. The latest is Brooklyn Nets star player Kevin Durant who scored big through his investment company, Thirty Five Ventures. The company invested in Coinbase in 2017 and is now reaping the rewards after Coinbase’s stock closed at $328 on its first day of trading.

As a result, Thirty Five Ventures is now valued at an insane $86 billion. Durant’s initial contribution to his company is said to be around $250,000 to $1 million. However, information about how much he would be collecting is not immediately available, but Yahoo reported that he put $250,000 in 2017, his investment would amount to $13.5 million.

Meanwhile, rapper 50 Cent is celebrating Durant’s business success. “86 what! BILLION, KD up like a mother ***er,” 50 Cent said in an Instagram post as he shared the news. “I love to see my people win.”

Nas, 50 Cent’s former rival, also raked in big bucks after the Coinbase stocks jumped up. Nas’ profit comes through the investment company Queensbridge Venture Partners which invested $25 million in 2013. At that time, the value of the cryptocurrency exchange was valued at $143 million.

On the other hand, Anthony Saleh, co-founder of Queensbridge Venture Partners, said the investment firm made early stage investments of amounts between $100,000 and $500,000.

At the time the firm got its stake in Coinbase, the share price was $1.00676, and Queensbridge owns around 99,329 or 496,642 shares on the low and high end, respectively. An analysis by CoinDesk suggests that Nas and his firm would bring in somewhere between $34.76 million and $173.8 million at $350 a share.

Gucci Mane Artist Ralo To Plead Guilty To Marijuana Trafficking Charges

Ralo, who is signed to Gucci Mane’s 1071 Records, is among 13 other people charged for marijuana trafficking in 2018 and has been behind bars since.

The artist is preparing to plead guilty to at least one charge in his criminal conspiracy case, according to VladTV. This means that Ralo, who pleaded not guilty in May 2018, is now changing his not guilty plea to a guilty plea.

The court has been informed of the artist’s intentions after a document was filed on Tuesday, April 13. Judge Alan Baverman acknowledged that the court is aware that Ralo “intends to enter a guilty plea in this case.” However, a date for hearing to enter the new plea has not been officially given.

The young rapper is charged with conspiring to distribute 100 kilos of marijuana worth millions of dollars. On conviction, he faces up to 40 years in prison.

The rapper was unable to secure bail and has been in jail since being arrested after prosecutors were successful in getting the judge to deny Ralo’s $250,000 bond by arguing that there was significant evidence he’d continued to set up drug deals from his jail cell, using code words and an Apple watch.

Evidence from his Apple watch was said to be very incriminating. It seems that the rapper’s latest move follows on the heel of developments with his co-conspirators who were jointly charged. Weeks ago, Ralo posted on his official Instagram account that the persons he was charged with have thrown him under the bus to secure plea deals for reduced sentences for themselves.

“IDK HOW TO WRITE OR SAY THIS BUT IMA JUST GET IT OFF MY CHEST. I BEEN DEALING WITH A BATTLE WITHIN MYSELF. KNOWIN THAT MY MANS AN THEM THREW ME UNDER BUS TO GET THEM A TIME CUT,” he said. “I SUFFER NIGHT AN DAY FROM THAT PAIN, IN ORDER FOR ME TO FEEL BETTER IM TRYING TO PUT IT IN ME TO FORGIVE THEM AN I BEG YAWL TO FORGIVE THEM AS WELL. I WANNA PUT ALL THIS POLICE AS SHIT BEHIND ME AN MOVE FORWARD IN LIFE, FORGIVE DOONKI WILD, ALL THE OTHERS AN BEGG THAT THEY DONT SAY MY NAME TO THEM FOLKS AGAIN. LET THEM FOLKS LIVE THEY LIFE IN PEACE PLZ BRO. #FREERALO,” the post ended.

Meanwhile, it seems that the rapper is also banking on clemency from President Joe Biden for a pardon based on the fact that it is a marijuana offense and the substance is being legalized across the country.

Lil Nas X Faces Backlash Over Alleged Video Of His Mother Begging On The Streets

Lil Nas X is getting some negative press after a fan shared a video alleging that his mother is begging for money on the streets of Atlanta. His fans have called him out for allegedly refusing to help his mother, who, from all indications, seems to be homeless.

It’s no secret that Lil Nas X and his mother have a strained relationship. In the past, he has acknowledged that she has an addiction problem.

“She’s an addict so we don’t have the closest relationship. Even trying to get her better- things didn’t quite work out. But there’s still love,” he said in 2020. His fans apparently don’t seem to think he is showing that “love” he speaks of, as apart from posting the video, the fan captioned the post. “This is @lilnasx mom holding a feed me sign.”

Immediately fans started calling out the multi-platinum artiste and questioning the relationship with his mother. Aside from what has been relayed by Nas X, there is little known about the relationship with his mom. The 22-year-old rapper’s troubles began weeks before when he unveiled his brand new satan shoes, laced with blood. Fans questioned the need for blood. Meanwhile, Nike filed for a stop order of the controversial footwear.

The drama continued with the release of his latest number-one single, “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name).” Fans lashed out at Lil Nas X for his satanic symbols, which included him performing a lap dance on “the devil.”

Nas X has not yet responded to the recent claims about the relationship with his mom.

Roisin Murphy – Sinking Feeling Lyrics

Deep in quick sand
You dive in the shallow end
You break your neck and
You?re never ever gonna get up again

The glass house that you lived in
Is deep in the quickening
Angels might call by
But fools they rush in

Bring some peace to your mind
For today is a new day

Here in my hand
Time is just sand
Fine lines of love and hate
There on your face

But I look at this way
In the next seven days
In the next, in the next
It might just change

How can I write the story that
Went and wrote itself down on paperback?

Called the fountain of know thyself
It?s a lonely book still upon the shelf

It?ll be all smiles and we?ll rise and ride
On the waves of a sinking feeling

Bring some peace to your mind
For today is a new day

Happy people don?t give into
Happy people don?t give into
That sinking feeling

It?ll be all smiles and we?ll rise and we?ll sail
It?ll be all smiles and we?ll rise and we?ll sail
On the waves

It?ll be all smiles and we?ll rise and we?ll sail
On the waves of a sinking feeling

Lil Snupe’s Dad Big Snupe Blast Jay-Z, Meek Mill For Conditions Of Son’s Gravesite

Lil Snupe’s dad, who was recently released from prison, is angry after visiting his son’s gravesite.

It’s been almost eight years since young rapper Lil Snupe died, and his father Big Snupe has seen his grave for the first time. But Big Snupe, who had been incarcerated at the time of his son’s death, was not pleased with the gravesite his son received.

Lil Snupe, who was often described as a promising young rapper, died in 2013 after he was shot twice in the chest following an argument that ensued over a video game while in his friends’ apartment. He was only 18 at the time of his death.

Some days later, 36-year-old Tony Holden turned himself in to the police and was charged with first-degree murder, armed robbery, and illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. About one month later, another suspect, Edrick O. Stewart, was also arrested and charged.

On Monday (April 12), Lil Snupe’s father, whose correct name is Charlie Brown, documented his first visit to his son’s grave on Instagram. Brown, who served 20 years in prison, shows the journey to the gravesite with flowers in hand, telling followers that he had anticipated this visit as he was not able to grieve properly since his son’s death.

“I been holding this sh*t right here since 2013….Held this sh*t eight years in the pen. I had to hold it in,” he said.

A post shared by Charlie Brown (@bigsnupe318)

His anticipation was met with disappointment when he arrived at the gravesite, arguing that Lil Snupe deserves a proper gravestone.

“This ni**a ain’t got no muthafu**in’ headstone on this sh*t. God d*mn. I never thought I’d come see my muthafu**in’ son and he’d have no muthafu**in’ headstone.”

He proceeded to call out Meek Mill and his record label, Dream Chasers (to which Lil Snupe was signed), and also Jay-Z for allowing his son to be buried like that.

“There should be a monument up to this ni**a’s shit. Man, what the f*ck went on? Did Meek Mill see him get put in the ground? Was Meek Mill around here to see him get put in the ground? He wasn’t around here to see him put in the ground? But he came and seen him in the casket?”

He continued: “He was affiliated with Roc Nation. JAY-Z, I see you f*ck with godd*mn your kids to the fullest. You love Blue Ivy and them. I love Lil Snupe. Don’t get it twisted … Ain’t been no rappers down here that was f***ing with Lil Snupe? One of them ni**as in the rap game? One of them major ass n***s? Y’all dudes say y’all solid, man. … Snupe wouldn’t have did y’all like that, bruh.”

There has so far been no response to Brown’s complaints from any of the rappers.

Shaneil Muir Looks To Koffee As The Blueprint For Dancehall Success

Shaneil Muir is hungry for success, and she is looking to reggae music’s prize, Koffee, for inspiration.

The “Yamabella” singer made her appearance on TVJ’s ER with host, Anthony Miller where she answered questions about her position on her journey to success and where she desires to be. Shaneil Muir hails Koffee for her success at such a young age and see the young lyricist as the blueprint for success in dancehall in this era.

“Koffee has won a Grammy at a tender age. When I look at that and see how young she is and how talented she is to be in that position and to be rewarded for such hard work that she has done. I’m like I need to know what’s going on behind that business right there. What is it that can push me and help to grow myself, grow my craft.”

The 21-year-old Koffee, whose real name is Mikayla Simpson, won the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 2019, making her the youngest person and only woman to be awarded in this category. The “Rapture” singer has also managed to snag some big-name collaborations with the likes of John Legend, Gunna, Buju Banton, Govana, as well as connecting with The African Giant Burna Boy. Her success has resulted in a boom in endorsement deals from the likes of Malta, MasterCard, and Calvin Klein.

Shaneil Muir, on the other hand, recently started to make waves in the music industry, as the singer rose to popularity in 2019 following her hit single “Yamabella.” Still, this was not her first time on the music scene. In 2016, Muir entered the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall talent show and was one of the finalists. Still, her recent fame/success is still new to her as she continues to climb the ranks in the dancehall space. During her interview with Miller, she expressed that she is careful not to spoil a good thing.

“Obviously this is a new environment for me. I’ve never been at this place. I’ve never been in this position,” she explained.

The “The Pain” singer revealed that she is looking forward to collaborating with many different talents and also releasing new singles for herself, and fans are excited to see what the artiste is coming with next.

Shaneil Muir was one of the breakout artists in 2020.

And I hope that you find it, all that you need

I hope that they hold you until the end
You can have America

But all of our time chasing America
Though she never had a home for me
All of our time chasing a dream
Hmm-hmm, hmm-hmm
A dream that meant nothing to me

Grupo Diez 4tro – En El Refuego Lyrics

[Letra de “En El Refuego”]

En este mundo frío, vivido lo prohibido
También ando en lo mío soy de feria ando bien al tiro
Por que ya no me quieren ver vivo y cuido lo que es mío
Ya saben los del 4 como defiendo el mercado

Ya van tres veces lo han intentado y nunca lo han lograron
Tumbarme el ganado sigo firme y no me rajo a balazos me correteado y logre yo escaparlos
No piensan que es un juego ando recio en el refuego
Y con mi raza navegando

Sacramento paseando, Las Vegas ruleteando
En el casino por un rato gasto pacas sin pensarlo
Y sigo generando puritos benjamines para seguir con este bussines
Tengo casas en la esquina, esconden de la fina
Y la tienen bien lista por si quieren de la chiva
Ando pilas con mi clica y sé que voy arriba

[Interludio]
Saludos a la raza que se burló mientras andaba
Yo a pata y sin nada
Puro Diez 4tro viejones

Un día me traicionaron, y mota me robaron

Pero logre cazarlos pura madre que se pelaron
Ya le habia dicho a su gente que no anden de corrientes
Y una bala pérdida vale mas que tu propia vida
Entre las noches ando atento cuidando el terreno
Con mi radio colgado y mi gallito bien forjado
Y una dama me alivia y siempre me acompaña
Mi amiga María Juana es la que me dio las ganancias
Pero cambiando de tema, tengo muchos problemas
Pero hacer la pela no es problema
Tengo mis maneras de mantenerme la quema
Conozco las materias
Cargo la nueva escuela y los pies siempre en la tierra
Mis lujos son exclusivos
Cargo puro brillo
Louis Vuitton preferido o de botas no importa el motivo
Brindo por mis amistades
Y mis amigos leales
Con esto me despido
Sin nombre y sin apellido para no hacer tanto ruido

[Outro]
Corridos, no chinganderas viejones
Puro Diez 4tro, ya se la saben

NLE Choppa Gives Soulja Boy His Flowers

NLE Choppa is giving Soulja Boy his flowers while he’s still alive.

Soulja Boy has been in the music industry for over a decade, and he is quite determined that he should be recognized for his contribution to his genre. So much so that he is known to have made quite a few bold statements highlighting just how much of a pioneer he is.

It seems his wish of being recognized for his contributions has not gone unnoticed. NLE Choppa has now taken to social media to show some appreciation to Drako.

He captioned his post; “Wanna take the time out my day to say I appreciate @souljaboy giving yo flowers while you are here not when you gone. LEGEND.” Soulja Boy responded to NLE Choppa tweeting, “Ni*** text me back lol. But yea thanks bro.”

Nigga text me back lol. But yea thanks bro https://t.co/UN41ZbTOQG

— Soulja Boy (Drako) (@souljaboy) April 8, 2021

According to Soulja, he was hand delivered the first-ever iPhone from Apple’s CEO while doing the “Crank Dat” video shoot. He once mentioned that he purchased a jet valued at $55 million for his birthday. He has credited himself with helping rapper Drake on his journey in music. He ensured the Toronto native did not forget this while being interviewed on The Breakfast Club a few years ago, and again after Drake hailed Bow Wow as one of his idols.

Soulja Boy is credited as being one of the first internet sensations to spread the hip hop culture through the use of social media platforms. The decision is still out on whether he was the one who birthed the viral dance challenge/craze with his video for “Crank Dat.”

Interestingly NLE Choppa is not the only one who has expressed appreciation of the work the “Kiss Me Through” the phone rapper has put in over the year. Other rappers have also reached out in the past to share similar sentiments also via social media.
