My brother Jay works for Uni records. Recently he organized an in-store appearance (in Boston) for rapper 50 Cent. Jay said he was quite impressed with him as a person. Apparently at the store he gave a very compelling talk about his life and experiences. Both Jay's experience and my seeing an interview that 50 Cent gave recently (again very impressive) makes me question the validity of reports I hear about his current involvement with gangs, guns, and shootings.
50 cent also happens to be my neighbor. He lives in Mike Tyson's old house up on the mountain here in my town, Farmington, CT. Okay, I call him my neighbor even though I have never actually met him. ('Neighbor' is really about locale anyway, not relationship. And I'm sure there are many neighbors that you've never met either... so stop snickering.) Now since 50 Cent doesn't even know me, I, of course, was not invited to the huge party that he recently threw at his house on the hill. Celebrities and artists alike came to celebrate the debut of his new album. Reports said that Missy Elliot attended, who I think is a brilliant artist and producer. MTV was there as well to film the festivities, which will be featured on an upcoming special about his new album.
