NEWS: 50 Cent Allegedly Halting Fire Investigation And More In “The Roundup”

50 Cent likes to get in the middle of trouble and start beef. But Fif reportedly doesn’t like to get in the middle of an investigation. Authorites are alleging that the G-Unit boss has not met with fire officials to discuss the burning of his Long Island Mansion. The home was occupied by the mother of his son and others, but no one was hurt during the blaze. Officials claim they’ve made several attempts to contact the rapper through his lawyers but to no avail. “We interview every owner of every structure that goes on fire,” an official said. [SOHH]

Looks like its been a tough year for JD. The hip-hop mogul’s girlfriend, Janet Jackson, had her most recent album flop, his latest artists 9th Ward is struggling to breakthrough, and now his latest business venture, Cafe Dupri, is set to shut down. “The economy has changed dramatically and people just aren’t eating out as much anymore,” Dupri explained. [AHH]

Murs is taking his album pretty serious. The Cali backpacker will appear at the Democratic National Convention to promote his latest LP, Murs for President. The DNC runs through the tail end of August and Murs’ album arrives in stores September 30.

    I remember a couple yrs ago in 2006, Janet Jackson had a flop CD, he blame it on the record co. saying they didnt promote her enough. now who is he going to blame it on. it cant be Jay-Z, I guess like the sayin goes
    blame it on the rain. Janet was alright yrs ago. but now people want a different beat. them thrillers day are over. Janet was good, once upon a time.

    hahah. 239allday, i gotta say. The food was pretty good. The chicken and waffles had that come back appeal. His spot is tucked away on a side block, i think that is the real issue.

    That’s the thing; JD’s soft..he hasn’t had a hot track in like 8 years. I mean; back in the day; Michael Bivens was a considered a brilliant mogal…but the times changed. JD lasted WAYYY longer than most mogal’s do..he should consider himself lucky.
