Judge lets Eminems suit against Apple
A federal judge says Eminem's copyright infringement claims over use of one of his songs in a commercial for Apple Computer can go forward. Apple featured a 10-year-old singing Eminem's Oscar-winning song Lose Yourself in an ad on MTV for the computer company's iPod music player and iTunes music service. On Monday, U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor ruled that Eminem's publishing company's suit can proceed against several companies, including MTV parent company Viacom and advertising agency TBWA/Chiat/Day.
50 Cent apparently didnt jump into the crowd to fight
According to MTVs source, the crowd was very enthusiastic when 50 took the stage, and that there was a lot of water being thrown back and forth but 'not in a negative way.' Just like a rock show. 50 jumped into the crowd, not to fight but to get the crowd hyped, then jumped back onstage and continued the song ("Wanksta"). 50 was just beginning his next song when a fight occurred in the crowd. The show was then shut down.
AllHipHop reported, that a concert in Springfield, Massachusetts featuring 50 Cent Saturday morning spiraled out of control. After a performance at the Hippodrome, a large disturbance broke out, resulting in the arrest of two patrons. Reports said 50 Cent jumped from the stage and started fighting with two people after someone in the crowd threw water on him as he performed. 50's entourage of 15-20 people also hopped off the stage, shoving people in the crowd.
Two other patrons were sent to the hospital with head injuries from broken glass bottles. The fracas took police an hour to control and shortly afterwards, a shooting took place at Taylor and Dwight Streets that authorities say is related. Local reports said that the incident was being investigated and that charges could be filed against 50 Cent.
But according to DJ Whoo Kid, this report is only half true. More info later.

Young Buck - Video shoot
Yesterday afternoon brought a homecoming for a Nashville homeboy who has hit it big. Rapper Young Buck shot the first video for his major label debut album Straight Outta Cashville, with the help of a few famous friends.
South Nashville's tiny Claiborne Street � with its modest single-family homes � was the stage where nationally renowned, multi-platinum rapper 50 Cent and up-and-comer Lloyd Banks joined their associate Buck to film the video. Shot in a parking lot between a small church near the J.C. Napier Public Housing complex and a pastel green frame house, the video also has Buck rapping on top of a rental truck. The video features noted cameos from 50 Cent, Banks and noted hip-hop producer Daz.
The video shoot became a block party. But when 50 cent emerged on the set, clad in a garnet-and-gold baseball cap and white headband, the crowd went crazy. Young girls giggled into their cell phones. When Buck's bass-heavy single played over the loudspeaker, many of the kids bopped their heads along to the beat. (Source: Tennessean)
