In a recent interview with Craig Davis, urban promotions director at Capitol Records, 50 Cent is now signed to Capitol/EMI along with Lloyd Banks.
“We got a really great roster…we just signed the 50 Cent deal over [at Capitol]….50 felt he needed to get out of the Interscope machine. He wanted to do a new change. So he got his release from there. We’re in negotiations with him, the deal just got signed very recently…and um, we got 50 Cent on our label. I think we’re gonna probably have Lloyd Banks as the first cut, and then 50’s gonna come out later on….”
According to rapper Fabolous twitter page, Def Jam Records will be releasing his mixtape, There Is No Competition 2: The Funeral Service as an EP this August. An EP is an Extended Play, which contains a CD of new music more than just one single, but is too short to quality as a LP/Album. An EP usually has between 4-8 tracks. Fab is in the studio working on a few new tracks.
Voluptuous vixen Esther Baxter knows how to make a little oil go a long way. To show her support for victims of the Gulf oil spill, Joe Budden‘s special lady (along with model friend Sabrina Athena) slicked herself up from head to toe, as her son frolicked around the set. No Johnson & Johnson, here, folks. Just 100% real, glycerol-happy oil. Check out these behind-the-shoot photos. Holler at Google images for those other ones…
Esther Baxter may have the looks of a vixen but her assets measure up to much more than just 34DDD-24-40. After taking a hiatus in 2007 from the hip-hop music video and men’s magazine circuit, the Miami native is now looking to make her mark on the big screen. With ambitions of being taken seriously as a thespian, Baxter recently completed three films including a forthcoming melodramatic comedy alongside Meagan Good appropriately titled Video Girl. During a recent PSA photo for the devastating BP oil spill, VIBE pulled the young mother aside to get the goods on her involvement in the fight against BP, her transition into becoming an actress and, of course, her rumored relationship with rapper Joe Budden.
