50 Cent, Timbaland & Wyclef Named In Steroid Probe

After the world of baseball was rocked by revelations that top athletes had been using performance-enhancing steroids, a new article in the Albany Times Union claims that various musicians may have also been the recipients of steroids and human growth hormones. The New York paper received documents from Congress’ ongoing steroid investigation that indicate that hip-hop stars like 50 Cent, Timbaland and Wyclef—along with other high profile celebrities like Mary J. Blige and Tyler Perry—may have been among tens of thousands of people who may have received the controversial substances.

The documents claim that the stars, who sometimes used fictitious names, were shipped prescribed human growth hormone or steroids at hotels, studios, homes, a Manhattan fitness club and the office of a Long Island chiropractor named Michael Diamond. The paper claims that the lure of such hormonal drugs is their supposed anti-aging effects, which have never been proven. Law enforcement officials say that they have no evidence that the customers of such drugs have broken any laws, and that they will be targeting the clinics, doctors and pharmacists who prescribed them instead.

    fuck football or even fleshing out the baseball probe, these fucks go from the mitchell report to hip hop?? WHAT THE FUCK!?

  • Young Deuce aka Princinnati

    Not suprised but I’m wondering why they went from sports to music. ANd how the hell is Mary J. Blige involved in steroids? 50 and Timbo makes sense but Mary? That doesn’t make sense. I’m watchin these dudes so when/if I get on I’m just gonna go and do things i’m legally paid to do. Then take my BLACK ass home. So then I can’t get caught up in shit. Come on 50. You know there’s a microscope on you. Why not just get in the gym like a normal dude. Greedy ass nigga.

    Hopefully Steroids will improve their Hip Hop skillz and somebody will come out with some dope shit.

    I can’t remember the last “hip hop classic” album thats dropped. Can you?

  • stoneyisland

    No Busta? No Dr. Dre? come on, we all know 50 is on the juice, NO human front teeth grow that damn big without HGH or steriods:)

  • Yessir

    WHAT DA FUCK? This is not sports. I don’t see how they have an advantage over their competitors in music by taking steriods. The MEDIA is always trying to make people look bad.

  • champ26

    this is some bullshit Congress just cant get enough….first the music is to direspectful….second it has a negative influence on america’s youth…..third it’s too violent and it make “BLACK” people do violent things…now this fucking steroids performance enhancers…saying it is helping the artist look young…do these fat suit wearing fucks know that black people age slow when we take care of ourselves but now we cant do that now because no cop got killed listening to a rap song…FUCK THESE FAT SUIT WEARING BITCHES…they need worry about bringing home the troops from iraq…and stop worrying about steroids

  • kdizzle

    Man, I think this sounds like a smear campaign. I mean none of these cats are atheletes and honestly it’s not that hard to get in shape if you want to. Atheletes take steroids to give them and edge over the competition, not so they can look good. I guess black folks can’t really be healthy though. I mean that would be selling out right? I mean it’s impossible for a BLACK person in the rap game to not smoke or drink heavily, or god forbid, work out without using drugs! We need drugs for everything right..? To function, speak in complete sentences, to look like were in shape? I’m saying Don’t believe these things until there’s real proof. For all we know it’s just another way to disenfranchise hip hop.

  • XXL

    LEST WE FORGET….LIL BOW WOW AND OMARION WERE ALSO INCLUDED IN THE LIST…..OTHER D-LIST RAPPERS LIKE GUCCI MANE AND YEAH WE HEARD THATS WHY JAY-Z GAT A FAT LIP….REMEMBER KEEP IT ON THE DOWNLO

  • Rednose pit bull

    he man,this is a hip hop site,thats why there was only black names,if you go to the ufc website,they only talk about the white people useing,if you go to yahoo news,they talk about blacks and whites…
    The person that wrote this article is a reporter for xxl,so they write the article how they want to word it,so if there arent white name mentioned,its because the xxl reported did bring it up,but they have brought it up every were else..
    all you guys know how to do is blame everything on cops and race,when the trth to the matter is they are doing thi shit on there own,no white person made them take drugs,no white person made them carry guns(ti) no cop made them do it either..if u break the law,and u get caught,then its ur wn fault,no one elses,dont hate on other people because they arent stupid enough to not get caught…and there are tons of white people getting busted for steroids every day,way more then blacks,so one article on blacks useing too has not a fucking thing to do with race…..
    and google the use of steroids with singers,youll see how it helps them with there voice and stff,so steroids DO affect the singing and in 50 cents case,the mumbleing..ahah

    • big fitz

      hey, redneck pit bull, when u say, “you guys,” who u talkin bout? black guys? that would not surprize me. another cracker ashamed of the blatant sytemic racism towards people of colour by his race.blaming the victim. cause we all know that cops and authorities dont focus more on black crime. we all know that dont we?

  • DirtDogggy

    WTF, this is a surprise ? let me tell you first hand 90% of pro athletes and stars have used juice for the last mutherfucking 15 or more years, so the games have always been even on the playing field, only a couple guys get called out but there will be a snitch shortly that tells all, watch. Besides what about prescription meds, the fucking government and corporates make billions so no one does anything but they are a million times worse than steroids and kill people every day plus alcohol and ciggaretss. It’s time the government and media got there priorities straight, this is just faggot ass gossip that means fuck all and doesn’t help anyone.

  • WOW

    niggas stay losing…

  • DTRIP

    not suprised…but don’t really care…it don’t make them rap better…if it was something about a ghostwriting scandal I would care but about this I don’t…LEAVE HIP HOP/RAP ARTISTS ALONE!!…LMAO…This DOES seem like some sort of desperate snuff out for Hip Hop from the goverment…LLLAAAAMMME

  • champ26

    Some are missing the point….If some of you dont know SOME WHITE PEOPLE NOT ALL have targeted the hip-hop generation alot more than they should…You tell where it says it is illegal to take steroids as an entertainer and I tell you are full of shit…Steroids or performance enhancers do not make you sing better or produce a song better or give you ideas for song better…It helps you perform better in working out and play sports…In case some people didn’t know that….Now the black and white thing its not an issue….I am not taking shots at the reporter or editor…I am taking at the people who decided to bring this to the media…Am I defending all black people no if you fucked up then you fucked up take your punishment and bounce back from it no matter what your skin color is

  • DTRIP

    DJ Pooh and Snoop are also on the list…LMAO
