Here is some of Young Buck’s response to 50 Cent’s allegations of his drug use and why he was kicked out of G-Unit in a track called “My Interview”:
“Damn right I’m sipping syrup, flipping birds to get what I deserve,” Buck raps in the opening verse. “And I hear the same things that you heard/ That ‘50 kicked him out’ or ‘Buck sniffs coke and he flips out’/ It’s too late, the whole world know what I be about/ Sh–, I do make mistakes like any other man/ Sh–, I recoup off an album, quicker than you can … Am I loyal? Dr. Dre can answer that for ya.”
What do you think about that?
Singer Omarion is no longer on Columbia Records. A source at the label confirmed that the Sony imprint decided to drop the former B2K lead singer. Omarion (real name: Omari Ishmael Grandberry) signed as a solo artist to Columbia Records after B2K broke up in December 2003. His boy band was actually signed to Sony’s Epic division. Omarion’s management and production company, The Ultimate Group (TUG) has a deal with that label and released Omarion’s good friend and business partner Marques Houston’s last two CDs through Motown.

Dipset member Freekey Zekey was nearly killed last night, when he was involved in a near fatal, three car pile-up accident last night (April 15) in New York.
The rapper was in Harlem, at a stop light on 115th and 1st Avenue, when a Chrysler 300 hit his 2007 White S550 Mercedes Benz from behind.
The impact of the collision sent Zeke and a friend in air, landing them into a parked Hummer, where a passenger was still inside.
While the rapper's Mercedes Benz was completely totaled, Zeke escaped with his life still intact.
The Harlem rapper says he spent the night at St. Luke’s Hospital for evaluation and has since been released with minor scrapes and bruises.
“I’m just happy to know that Zeke was not severely injured”, says Dipset member Juelz Santana in a statement.
The accident followed a night of Zeke recording new material for his sophomore album, which is expected to drop in the fall.

All-star forward Carmelo Anthony was arrested early Monday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence, hours after his worst game of the season. Police said the Denver Nuggets forward was pulled over for weaving and failing to dim his lights. Detective Sharon Hahn said Anthony failed a series of sobriety tests. He was charged with DUI, then taken to police headquarters before being released to a "sober responsible party," Hahn said. Anthony is due in court May 14. Mark Warkentien, the Nuggets' vice-president of basketball operations, said the team was aware of the situation but declined comment. Anthony apologized through his lawyer, Dan Recht. "Carmelo apologizes to his fans, the Denver community, his teammates and the Nuggets organization for the distraction this is causing them," He said Anthony consented to a blood test, but results won't be available for about two weeks. Last season, he was involved in a brawl at Madison Square Garden. Anthony, then the league's leading scorer, dropped the New York Knicks' Mardy Collins with a punch that cost him a 15-game suspension. In February, Anthony was ticketed in Arapahoe County for driving 25 mph over the posted speed limit. A hearing is set for next month in that speeding case.
