Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson movie

Get Rich or Die Tryin’ set to release

:::50 Cent finds a way to top the charts again:::

By: PJ Jackson Jr.

With the support by many, the movie, GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN hit stores this past week topping the charts for Curtis “50 cent” Jackson one more time. With no stranger to the chart topping hits Jackson’s gave the audience a chance to see his acting ability from start to finish.

Jackson along with a start studded cast was no slouch along side Oscar nominee, Terrence Howard and many more legends of the film industry.

Jackson actually showed may dynamics I his acting style. He told the tale of his story in a very plausible manner. From start to finish, the story line would continue on a consistent plain. This film was not difficult to follow. There were a few unrealistic things displayed in the movie but you can say to yourself, what movie doesn’t have a bit of fictions nature embedded into it?

Some say that the movie included soulless characters in monotones. This movie was not to be considered as a blockbuster but looking at the quality of the film it was a far reach to even be close to a block buster.

The average movie watcher can take this movie for what it is; a mediocre depiction of the drug rises and falls in the urban community.

On a lighter note one has to look closely, Jackson is no actor, he is a rapper. This attempt to capture a character that he also lived as was probably better then some of the actors we see on these second-rate evening programming

KHAO:

:::::The Grand Hustle Beat Maker

set to take the stage :::::

By: PJ Jackson Jr.

He makes your body move and the car thump; he keeps it gritty and keeps it smooth; the Grand Hustle Beat maker, KHAO, is no foreigner to the platinum acclaimed production credits of today’s hottest rappers.

KHAO is the new sound of the south, breaking the mold of the ole to familiar traditional bass beat patterns and unconventional string instruments. He has more to offer the industry as the newcomer for the south.

With production credits ranging from Ruben Studdard to Paul Wall, KHAO is best known for his production credits with the KING himself ,T.I. KHAO joined the Grand Hustle team more than five years ago producing beats under the Grand Hustle /Intaprize imprint. There is no question that KHAO is no phony to the southern movement; raised in the cusp of the south Montgomery, Alabama, KHAO had plenty of time to capture the sound of the new south.

Now with a album set to release in 2006,KHAO will now share with the world his music and vision he brought to you on Young Jeezy’s “Last of a Dying Breed”, T.I.’s album Urban Legend-Limelight and T.I’s album KING-Undertaker and Lil Kim’s NAKED TRUTH –I know you see me ; just to name a few.

This album release has been highly anticipated by the streets because of his association with the industries best rappers. KHAO, a mild mannered guy , has popped on the scene and has projects lined up with Trick Daddy, Governor, Ruben Studdard, Young Dro and Big Kuntry King just to round off the star studded cast

:::RUSSELL SIMMONS BACKTRACKS ON SEPARATION:::

Not appearing at all like a couple who just announced their separation, Russell Simmons, his wife Kimora Lee and their daughters Ming Lee, 6, and Aoki, 3, “woke up in the same bed” Monday, Russell revealed to the New York Daily News.

Three days earlier, the Def Jam founder had released a statement announcing the end of his seven-year marriage to the former model. On Tuesday, however, Simmons told the Daily News that he and his family woke up together at their Saddle River, N.J., mansion, and said there’s still “a possibility” they can save their marriage.

“On the day we made our announcement, I picked up my children from school and took them to see ‘Ice Age 2: The Meltdown’ with Kimora,” Simmons told the newspaper.

Simmons said he was also upset over press reports of their split “that made it look like we were unfaithful to each other. That’s not true. We know each other very well.”

Simmons said he told Kimora about his relationship with 23-year-old Dominican video vixen Denise Vasi, and added that the separation boils down to this: “I work with her 14 hours a day. The question is, do we want to be together 24 hours a day? We’re making a space and taking some time, but we’re best friends. We’re still going to have our media interests and our fashion interests. I am producing her reality show, and we’re raising our children together. From what the public sees, there’s absolutely no change.”

Simmons said their separation drama will be featured on her VH1 reality series, “The Kimora Lee Simmons Show,” and laughed: “I’m sure the producers want to get it on the show sooner rather than later.”

:::JANET SET TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE IN MAY:::

::::JANET JACKSON
IS BACK FOR ANOTHER ALBUM::::

After several years away from the spotlight (minus the naked butt bongo video leaked on the Internet late last year), Janet Jackson will return to the spotlight next month with the first single from her as-yet-untitled album.

According to Virgin Urban president Jermaine Dupri, also her boyfriend, the single is expected to arrive at U.S. radio in May, and the album will likely follow at the end of September.

Jackson’s new CD will be the first since 2004’s “Damita Jo,” which dropped in the midst of the fallout (pun intended) surrounding her Super Bowl halftime show. Her longtime production team Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis have contributed tracks to the new set as well.

“It’s a milestone year for us and for the collaboration,” Jam previously told Billboard.com. “It’ll be 20 years since the release of (Jackson’s 1986 album) ‘Control,’ so there’s definitely a little bit of a nod to that on the new album.”

Dupri also contributed tracks to the project, but tells Billboard that he won’t be a featured guest on any of the songs.

“But I don’t know if Jermaine Dupri the artist exists anymore. I’m not into that right now. It’s far on the back burner,” says J.D., who will also oversee the 2006 Virgin Urban releases of albums from Beenie Man, Sleepy Brown, Johnta Austin, Young Capone and Daz Dillinger. “It’s probably in the cards somewhere down the road. But it’s the last thing I’m thinking about right now.”
