Check out the 10 most revealing things from 50 Cent's recent interviews.

On Eminem
“I put him in a space I put my grandparents at..someone who took care of me when I couldn’t take care of myself.”

On Jay-Z
“Jay-Z can write anything, look how long he’s been going for.”

On famine
"Since I did the SK Project and I partner with the United Nations world food program, I got a lot of different feedback from people online. Through social networks and through the Twitter. I read the comments and see 'em saying 'People hungry here Fif.' You're doing things on a worldwide level because the music's taking you places that you didn't even expect to go. You see how famine is effecting Africa and how many people-- the numbers are huge."

On gay marriage
“I think everyone should be happy. I think a fool is going to go against same sex marriage at this point. The President…look how long it took him to say he was for same sex marriages. You understand? I’m up for it. If everyone else is for it, then hey, to each his own. I don’t have personal feelings towards it because I’m not involved in that lifestyle. I want people to be happy. It makes for everything to be better.”

On heterosexual organizations
“So in process, we need organizations for straight men. We do. We need organizations for straight men in the case you’ve been on the elevator and somebody decides they want to grab your little buns. Times are changing. Those organizations are set up for at one point they were being attacked for those choices. Now its completely different. Obviously [homosexuality] is more socially accepted."

On Lloyd Banks
“There’s a point where artists need to go and develop on their own and I think he reached that point. He should executive produce his own project. He been picking his own music. Now it’s time for them to find that manager, those outside people who can completely focus on their projects and take them to that next level.”

On Game
“They looking at me saying, ‘You’ve done a lot, but what have you done for me lately?’ So they damn sure don’t care about what he doing.”

On Mase
“[Diddy] picked up Mase, I thought he was gonna come back and see me with the paper later. He asked me for $2 million. Jimmy [Iovine] like, ‘Mase ain’t worth $2 million with $2 million in his pocket.’ Jimmy like, ‘Look, I wanna see this thing happen. Let’s make this thing happen and I’ll give up my profit.’ I’ve never heard him say that ever. I think [Puff] had an issue with losing Mase to me.”

On the fans
"To me, hip-hop consumers are like crackheads. They gonna cop from whoever got some good sh*t and as long as you got something that can get them high momentarily, they're happy with you and then they're gonna look for whoever else."

On competition
"It's always 10 in the top 10. So whenever you feel like you're bigger than the actual artform itself, you're in for a rude awakening."

Russell Wilson Buys Amazon Stock For Select Teammates

Russell Wilson recently made history as the National Football League's (NFL) highest paid player. To celebrate this wealth, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback purchased Amazon stock worth $12,000 apiece for 13 of the team's offensive linesmen, TMZ reports.

The premise behind the gesture is to help set the players on a lucrative path post-NFL. "We all have dreams of what we can build and accomplish off the field," he wrote in a memo. "One important lesson I have learned thus far in my career: The memories on the field will last forever, but we have to constantly prepare for life after football."

In the letter that was sent to his teammates, Wilson said he was indecisive on what to give them as a sign of his appreciation for their protection on the field. "Some were flashy, some were cool, but I wanted to give you something that had a lasting impact," he said. "Something that would affect the lives of you, your family, and your children." According to CNBC, each linesmen's stock could be worth $270,000 in the next 10 years if Amazon's shares continue to result in a return of 2,200 percent.

Earlier this month, Wilson signed a $140 million contract. He'll suit up with the Seahawks for the next four years. The re-signing follows a previous four-year agreement the 30-year-old athlete made with the team.

Obama Boulevard Reveal In Los Angeles To Take Place In May

The city of Los Angeles will shine a bit brighter with the unveiling of Obama Boulevard next month.

On Tuesday (April 23), Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson announced the event to reveal the street named after the 44th president of the United States for May 4. Wesson proposed the name change in 2017 in honor of Barack Obama who famously held one of his first presidential campaign rallies at Rancho Cienega Park on Rodeo Road. The area already has streets named after former presidents, such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

The event will kick off with a street festival at noon with local vendors and performances by Doug E. Fresh, Yo-Yo, BJ the Chicago Kid, Battlecat, Kurrupt and more. In a sentimental manner, the ceremony location will take place in the area Obama Boulevard intersects with Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.

“I’m thrilled that Los Angeles will be home to Obama Boulevard,” said Council President Wesson. “Our history is important and this is one way that we will ensure that America’s 44th President’s legacy is shared for generations to come for Angelenos and visitors alike.”

Obama Boulevard will replace Rodeo Boulevard, a 3.5-mile street that runs from “The Heart of Screenland” better known as Culver City, to Mid-City Los Angeles. The area is considered to be a predominately African-American neighborhood with communities like Baldwin Hills and the location of the legendary Dorsey High School.

You can cop tickets for the free event here.

Attendees must enter their ZIP code and there is a six-ticket limit per household.

Teacher Arrested For Hiring A Hitman To Kill The Child He Allegedly Molested

A St. Louis teacher accused of molesting a then 7-year-old boy reportedly hired a hitman to kill the child and family.

According to Newsweek, Deonte Taylor worked as a teacher's assistant at Lusher Elementary School in 2015 when he allegedly removed the boy from the class, took him to an empty classroom engaging the child in oral sex. Although the boy's family reported the incident to local authorities at the time, Taylor wasn't arrested.

Between 2015 to 2018, Taylor worked toward his teacher's license and became a fifth-grade teacher at Walnut Grove Elementary school in the Ferguson-Florissant School District, and since he wasn't charged he was able to teach.

"Mr. Taylor went through the same process that all of our teaching candidates go through. Everyone goes through a criminal background check, sexual abuse registry background check and there was nothing that showed up on that," Ferguson-Florissant School District spokesperson Kevin Hampton told KSDK.

In November 2018, however, Taylor was arrested after DNA evidence proved his sample matched the DNA evidence of the victim.

Taylor, 36, faces three charges of statutory-sodomy.

While in jail awaiting trial, Taylor reportedly hired someone to kill the boy, now 10 and his family. He convinced his 66-year-old boyfriend Michael Johnson, to pay the hitman to carry out the fatal deed, which he did. However, the hitman turned an informant and exposed the plan to authorities.

Along with his charges stemming from child molestation, Taylor now faces two counts of conspiracy to commit murder and two counts of attempting to tamper with a victim in a felony prosecution. Johnson faces the same charges.

Both men appeared in a St. Louis court last week and pled not guilty. They're being held in jail without bond.
