50 Cent claims Game's no certified gangsta, talks fight with Game & Eminem...
50 Cent recently took more shots at Game's street credibility. In recent reports, Chuck Taylor revealed that he kept an AK-47 in his house. However, Fiddy believes that the former G-Unit member only flaunts his weaponry to toughen up his image. "He does that to make people think he's a gangster but he's not. I don't say things like that because law enforcement might be reading, but I'm well protected," the Queens rapper recently told FHM Magazine. 50 also mentioned that his security was willing to terminate anyone who poses a threat to him. When asked who would win a fight between him, Eminem and Game, Fiddy told FHM, "Me. Of course I would win. And if I lost, people would come back afterwards and shoot them."

50 Cent sues Game's manager
A lawsuit filed by rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson may put the brakes on an edition of The Infamous Times, a popular biographical DVD series that explores the seedier side of street life.
In a lawsuit filed yesterday (May 31), Jackson alleges that three video production companies used footage from a free interview he conducted with Jimmy "Henchmen" Rosemond's Czar Entertainment.
"This lawsuit has no merit," Rosemond told AllHipHop.com. "50 Cent agreed to do the interview and he knew this DVD was coming."
Kon Artis talks new label, new artists, new music...
After collecting platinum plaques with D-12 and contributing singles to Xzibit, 50 Cent and G-Unit, Denaun "Kon Artist" Porter is launching his Runyon Ave. imprint � making him a player to watch in 2005.
Denaun may have blew up airwaves and sold out stadiums as a member of D12, but his production work is what first got him solo notoriety. After working under Dr. Dre for months, the Detroit multi-threat (Denaun raps, produces and sings) hit it big with Xzibit's "Multiply," 50 Cent's "P.I.M.P." and G-Unit's "Stunt 101."
"I've been doing it since �92, but I didn't take it serious. I wasn't trying to be a producer. When my first record came out, I was under Dre at the time. He saw that in me early when he was just listening to beats. I would give him beats, songs, all kind of sh!t and I was like, �Let me just do my beat and leave.' But he put me in the studio with people and was like, �Nah, produce some sh!t,'" Porter, who produced Eminem's 1995 LP, Infinite, told SOHH.com. "He kept me in there and kept that belief in me and just threw me out there to the wolves. Jay-Z and all these people would see me out there with Dre, but didn't know. They probably thought I was just working on a song, but all that time I was getting my sh!t up."
WJLB 97 Radio Station from the D, the host just reported the final single for "Encore" will be "Crazy In Love" which features Heart from the song "Crazy On You". Expect a video coming out in July to end the year for the latest album from Eminem.

Yayo hints at new G-Unit signees, covers new XXL with 50 Cent
In recent weeks, rumors began spreading that G-Unit was courting M.O.P., Guerrilla Black, Lil' Scrappy, Mobb Deep and Three Six Mafia.
The First Family even confirmed the reports and added that they were open to screaming 'M.O.P.-Unit' given the opportunity. Meanwhile Guerrilla Black was heard shouting G-Unit in a recent track. As for Scrappy, reports are increasingly stating that his sophomore release might drop via a joint venture between Lil Jon's BME imprint and G-Unit Records. The rumors were further fueled by Scrappy's cameo in 50's 'Candy Shop' video and Lil's Jon slot alongside 50 and Eminem on the upcoming 'Anger Management 3' tour.
Triumph squashes Eminem beef for Ass Like That -- then reignites it
For a two-foot-tall hand puppet, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog sure has a lot of enemies. He's permanently banned from the Westminster Kennel Club, has feuded with the animal-rights group PETA, and � most prominently � engaged in a rather heated war of words with Eminem.
And as such, it was probably a bit of a shock to anyone who tuned in to 'TRL' last Thursday and saw the stogie-smoking pooch canoodling with Eminem (as only a puppet and a man can) in the video for 'Ass Like That,' the rapper's brand-new, booty-obsessed video.
