We all know 50 Cent fancies himself as an actor, but did he envision himself in clay form? That’s how the Queens rapper appeared as himself in Adult Swim’s cult classic, Robot Chicken, on Sunday’s episode, where he showed up at a rap battle to sign PaRappa The Rapper (the old PlayStation character) to G-Unit. Fif’s cameo ends with him handing PaRappa a $1 billion advance check, but later gets accidentally shot in a drive by. Funny stuff.
Wale may have put his love for Seinfeld on wax for his respective 2008 and 2010 releases, The Mixtape About Nothing and More About Nothing, but it looks like Jerry Seinfeld is contributing to the MMG rapper’s new project for real. In the video below, Jerry tells us how they connected at his show and asked him to work with him on a new project (which will be called Album About Nothing). Whether we’ll be hearing a full 16 from Mr. Seinfeld, or even if it’s just similar to Tina Fey’s (hilarious) appearance on Childish Gambino’s Royalty, we can’t wait to hear what comes of this.
Fuse‘s “intimate” interviews are always a source of knowledge—even if they are more unorthodox than most. Still promoting his new solo album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, Big Boi was the latest to sit-down with Fuse, where, among other topics, he revealed that he wanted to become a child psychologist had it not been for music (1:34min mark), and that his biggest regret in life was not spending enough time with his father before he passed.
General Patton also stopped by Huffington Post offices recently to once again address the possibility of an OutKast reunion, offer his thoughts on gun laws and explain why he voted for Libertarian Gary Johnson (whilst sharing an anecdote about being congratulated on Obama’s victory from a Caucasian lady).
A child psychologist is what I was gonna go to school for. It’s easier to mould a young mind than it is to repair a broken one, but I figure that doing music is a form of child psychology, ’cause kids listen to music and it teaches them lessons.
Where I stand at is on the second amendment, where the right to bear arms is not just for hunting and fishing and thing like that, but it’s the right of the American people, to have a means of defense against a tyrannical government. Sometimes you gotta have that back-up plan… I think people can have whatever they want to as long as they’re responsible.
(Golden Globes: Tina Fey basically says in the nicest way possible what we’re all thinking: “Taylor Swift, get off your back.” ; )
This isn’t really up for debate….the best thing about the Golden Globes last night was those two sassy broads up there, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. They showed the world how to be lovable and hilarious and hot, without all the gag-inducing faux-sincerity of Anne Hathaway, or twee angst of Lena Dunham, or gimmicky buffoonery of Sacha Baron Cohen, etc. In fact…the biggest problem with the awards were that they didn’t just have Tina and Amy in a skybox doing ongoing commentary through-out the entire show.
Highlights of the opening monologue included zingers against Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow’s megalomanic ex-husband James Cameron (Yes, the Titanic/Avatar director), against Quentin Tarantino, and Hollywood overall.
The other big hits of the night? Well besides Les Miz, Lena Dunham, Homeland, Jennifer Lawrence and Argo…were the moments when things went off script and got weird.
There was funny improv weirdness. And then there was the baffling but heartwarming coming-out-of-the-closet weirdness of Jodie Foster.
Watch the Top 3 Moments of the 2013 Golden Globes:
More Tina Fey and Amy Poehler goodness… Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig freestyling…
And the most talked about moment of the night, the Jodie Foster speech…
After the jump… (more…)

Basedgod help us. Kat Stacks was just released from a Louisiana immigration facility after her pending deportation was reversed. She was nearly sent back to her native Venezuela after being arrested with a firearm in Florida. Originally, she was deemed as having nothing to add to American Society, but on Wednesday an appeals board voted 2-1 to grant her appeal. And, she’s now in the hands of WSHH’s owner. Watch out rappers.
The appeals board said in its decision that it considered Herrera’s criminal history, and declared that her “Kat Stacks persona is disturbing and in no way a positive contribution to society.”But it concluded that “other compelling factors, particularly her long history of abuse, outweigh the negative factors.”
“And they have determined that as a matter of discretion, Andrea deserves a second chance,” said Herrera’s attorney, Mayra Jolie. via NBC

When will Weezy run out of room of his face? It looks like Wayne is still on his face tatt phase because he just another one inked onto his forehead. In honor of skateboard company Baker, the rapper-turned-skater got their “baked” logo tatted into his skin. What do you think?
Taking a break from promoting his sophomore album, Big Boi gets into the holiday spirit with Noisey by reciting the full version of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” The Outkast member cracks open the book and gets cozy in a comfy chair as he reads the Dr. Seuss classic. At one point, Big Boi adds his touch to the story by rapping portions of it.
You can purchase Big Boi’s Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors album on iTunes now.
