VIDEO: 50 Cent, G-Unit, Akon & Ne-Yo – Velvet Villains Festival | Behind The Scenes


ThisIs50 takes you behind the scenes on a recent G-Unit trip to Turkey for the Velvet Villains Festival.  Akon and Ne-Yo also showed up to hit the stage alongside 50 cent, Precious Paris, Tony Yayo and Kidd Kidd at the overseas event.  See what it’s like for Fif and company as they take shots of Patron on a private jet, interact with fans and live the lavish life all the way on the other side of the world.

Tony Yayo – Girlfriend Ft. Twista


Tony Yayo is still kickin’ around and links up with Chicago emcee Twista for his new single “Girlfriend” off his upcoming Godfather of The Ghetto mixtape. The new song finds an auto-tuned Yayo rappin’ dropping honest bars about his overwhelming love for the cash rather than a relationship and his commitment to the hustle.  Twista follows suit and rides the beat on point in familiar high speed fashion.

AUDIO: Gunplay speaks out about BET Hip Hop awards fight

Gunplay calls into Power 105’s Breakfast Club to speak on the altercation at the BET hip hop awards. Lets just say his description of the way it played out in comparison to what the visuals show is very different.

CLICK HERE to see video of TMZ catching up with 50 Cent who appeared to be unfazed by the altercation as he landed in New York following the BET Hip Hop Awards Show in Atlanta.

VIDEO: Gunplay gets jumped at BET Hip-Hop Awards by 50 Cent & G-Unit affiliates

From what the video appears to show is 50 Cent and his camp backstage walking somewhere when all the sudden the fight breaks out.  Tossed like a rag doll is MMG signee Gunplay.  From what the audio at the end of the video states a man can be heard saying that Gunplay was to blame for the attack because of trying to sneak attack 50 Cent and run.  

I can’t lie I feel bad for the guy but you have to wonder if this is normal behavior for someone of his background?  At an award show you try and fight 50 Cent when he’s with all this security? It just doesn’t make any sense.  In fact, that has to be common sense.  Then again this is behavior from a guy who openly admitted to having drug problems.  This also raises concerns if the between G-Unit and MMG is once again a priority in 50 and Ross’ agenda.  Check out the clip below.  

Almost forgot…what do you think of Tony Yayo possibly being one of the best if not the best hype man of all time?  In concert this man is on point with 50 Cent bar for bar and knows how to play his position.  Top it off, he springs into action and says the same ad-libs (provides authenticity) that he does on the track.  I’ll be honest, it was my favorite part of the video.
