50 Cent already making his presence felt in Texas after moving from the Tri-State area.
50 Cent seems to be fitting in well with his new home state, having finally decided to cut the cord on New York and moving to Texas. A week after making the announcement, the hip hop legend and movie producer shared his latest achievement on Saturday, a win in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, where his Le Chemin du Roi champagne was named Grand Champion in the International Wine Competition.
The artist shared his excitement with ABC 13 news. “When they told me I won, I almost fainted. I was really excited,” 50 said. “I am very proud of this.”
Two couples, Demetra and Frank Jones and Leticia and Stephen Trauber, jointly purchased the rapper’s wine for $160,000. He shared the details on his Instagram official account, which included a true Texas-style trophy- a large saddle with Reverse Grand Champion Best Of Show 2021 etched on the side near the Rodeo Houston logo.
The rapper said, “They told me everybody who’s somebody in Houston is at the @rodeohouston,” he wrote. “I won reserve grand champion best in show. #lecheminduroi.”

The rapper also shared his experience getting accustomed to the culture of his new home after he lost out on a bid for a wine. “Man there are some people in Texas that got a lot of money,” he wrote. “I bid $175,000 for a bottle of wine and i still lost.”
The rapper recently moved to Texas and shared over the past week that he is now a resident of Houston. He said he would explain to his fans later about his move, but his signal “#greenlightgang” is definitely a hint as to the real purpose of the artist’s move, as we know has everything to do with his latest contract with Starz for Black Mafia Family production.
50 Cent told Snoop Dogg that the set of “BMF” is a smoke free zone.
Snoop Dogg is a West Coast legend who has built his career on his smooth-talking style and his embrace of marijuana culture. It’s rare that you see Snoop without a blunt in hand, so it makes sense that the “Gin and Juice” rapper was caught off guard when someone tried to interrupt his smoke session. 50 Cent took to Instagram this week to share the moment he attempted to talk Snoop into putting out his weed while on the set of his upcoming show, BMF.
The picture showed Snoop in full makeup for his character role on the show, looking at a masked Fifty like he was crazy. “This is how @snoopdogg looked at me when I told him he can’t smoke weed on set,” Fif captioned the post. “He said f**k you talking about 50 it’s legal. LOL”.
Fifty may have just been looking out for the comfort of the cast and crew, some of whom might prefer not to get a second-hand high during work hours. Snoop, on the other hand, knows his worth and is probably betting he won’t get kicked off set for refusing to put out his blunt. The picture also revealed some behind-the-scenes details about BMF, showing Snoop in a vintage afro, old-school sunglasses, and flashy gold chains.
Snoop is reportedly playing a pastor and spiritual advisor in Black Mafia Family which tells the true story of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and his brother Terry “Southwest T” Flenory and their bigtime drug trafficking operation. The show is being filmed in Detroit and Atlanta and features several familiar faces, including La La Anthony.
Although he may be under the influence at all times, Snoop has already proven his acting chops several times over, including in his recent role alongside Matthew McConaughey in The Beach Bum. The rap icon received many positive reviews for his work in the film, although critics noted that the character was very similar to Snoop’s real-life personality. Now that he is cast as a pastor in BMF, fans may get a chance to see a more dynamic performance from the D.O. double G.

50 Cent says he’s not about to get into a fight with Diddy for dating his baby mama, Daphne Joy.
For years there have been rumors of a possible rift between two of hip hop’s biggest megastars, 50 Cent and Sean “Diddy” Combs. The rumors may have started circulating over allegations that Diddy owed the Black Mafia Family for some of his success. There have also been talks of a possible rift over Vodka brands. Whatever the case may be, both have stated they have no issues despite the rumors circulating in the media.
It seems a new topic has emerged to throw gossip-mongers into another tizzy about Fifty and Diddy’s relationship. This time the subject is none other than one of Fifty’s former flames Daphne Joy, who also happen to share a son with Fifty. Earlier this week, paparazzi shots surfaced online of Daphne and Diddy cozying up together.
This, of course, sparked rumors of another possible cause for an alleged rift between both rappers. However, the G-Unit rapper took to social media to “clear the air.” He posted one of the photos with Diddy and Daphne with the caption: “Nah me and puff fight over business sh*t, If he like the girl he like the girl ? I don’t give a f***. #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi.”

Fans and followers also threw in their bit, letting their opinions known on the comments he made. Some praised him for his stance, while others poked fun about the entire situation.
Fifty and Daphne seem to have a good relationship and even recently spent the holiday with her and their son.
