According to Floyd, 50 Cent will walk to the ring with Floyd and perform prior to his championship bout with Miguel Cotto at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

According to Floyd, he and 50 Cent have a bond that goes beyond music – the pair are also planning a business venture together that could lead to 50 Cent promoting fights.
“We may even let him fight on Pay-Per-view one time, we don’t what the future holds, but he is getting involved with boxing.
During an interview with ESNewsReporting, Floyd’s close friend 50 Cent discussed the boxing champ’s impact on the sport of boxing.
“I think he’s the Muhammad Ali of our time,” 50 Cent said. “I think he’s the Muhammad Ali of our generation. The difference is the actual messaging points.
“In that period of time, Muhammad Ali was part of a huge movement that actually socially made him someone different,” 50 continued. “Without those issues going on, it’s tough for anyone to be near comparison to him. But Hip-Hop culture is now Pop culture. It’s so broad that there’s not anyone who’s not a part of the culture now. If you watch the artists and how many people he is relevant to and compare it to that, he [Floyd Mayweather] actually is boxing right now.”

Young Jeezy finally received a well-deserved nod from President Obama at the White House Correspondants Dinner Saturday night.
After being asked what would happen a second term, the president joked to the glee of the audience in attendance.
“In my first term, I sang Al Green; in my second term, I’m going with Young Jeezy,” the president quipped.
“My President” was the fourth single from Young Jeezy’s third album, The Recession. The album was recorded the day Barack Obama was confirmed as the Democratic presidential nominee.
The song also features Nas.
In 2008, Jeezy told MTV that he never expected to be recognized by the president.
“I’m a street cat 100 percent, but there’s certain things I had to distance myself between too if I wanna lead the way for the rest of us, if I wanna spit that game back to the ‘hood,” Jeezy said. ” … I don’t expect Obama to come send me a thank-you letter for the song. I feel like he did his thing, and I did what I could to help.”

The evidence is piling up against William Balfour in the murders of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and 7 year old nephew but testimony from two witnesses, including Jennifer Hudson’s former boyfriend James Payton and her own sister Julia, may end up helping the defense…
From CBS Chicago
James Payton, who grew up in Englewood and has known both the Hudsons and Balfour for 20 years, said he stopped by the Hudson home almost every day.
In the month of the murders, Payton saw Balfour outside an apartment building across the street from the Hudson’s house 30 to 40 times.
He said, about a week before the murders, he saw Balfour selling drugs outside the building.
However, Payton also testified that Jason Hudson occasionally sold drugs, which might bolster the defense’s claim that the Hudsons were killed over Jason’s drug dealings, and that Balfour had nothing to do with the killings.
Payton, who said he used to date Jennifer Hudson, is at least the second witness to testify Jason Hudson sold drugs. Julia Hudson also admitted her brother was a drug dealer.
