Power

50 Cent’s Power will kick off its second season this summer. Watch the trailer to catch up on what’s happened thus far and what to expect for the upcoming season.

GUnit_NahImTalkingBout

G-Unit drops their first official video since their Summer Jam reunion with “Nah I’m Talking Bout.” Far as visuals, there’s nothing fancy. The most important thing is the crew seems genuinely happy to be back together, so we can at least be assured the music won’t be contrived.

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL — Promoter 50 Cent and former world champion Yuriorkis Gamboa held an open workout today at Iron Mike Productions’ gym for the latter’s June 28 challenge to WBO lightweight titlist Terence Crawford. This will be the biggest test thus far in both men’s lightweight campaigns. After the workout, Gamboa gave some insight into his strategy and future plans should he get by Crawford.

The bout will air on HBO “Boxing After Dark” at 10 p.m. live from Century Link Center in Omaha, Nebraska.

 

GAMBOA

Coming from Cuba, the guys were technical and had size, and I fought them a lot. Me, I’ve perfected my strategy to fighting these type of fighters.

I think this will be a counter-vs-counter match.”

Objective is to get him to the middle range where I can use my speed.

Logic says to carry a little more weight as you get older, so I’m comfortable fighting at this weight.

The training camp is going perfect.

How are you preparing in this training camp?

General conditioning and working on specific objectives as we draw closer to the fight.

 

Working with Floyd Sr?

We worked on defense and counter punching.  I know I tend to put my hands down and we worked on that.

 

Strategy vs Crawford

The game plan is to attack from the start, be on the defensive, and develop the fight from there.

 

Why did you go fight Crawford in his hometown?

At this point, we have nothing to lose. We fight whenever, where ever.

 

Prediction

We will have a great fight and I’ll give you the best of me every time I fight.  We will win.

 

Working with 50?

It’s been two years up to this point it has been a great opportunity.  I’m aware that other promoters have not made it easy for 50 to complete his two bout agreement.

 

What’s next?

After this fight, sitting with SMS and looking for a fight with Garcia or someone of that stature.

The objective for the fight

The first objective is not only to win the championship, it’s to give SMS Promotions a better advantage.  I feel they have left them [SMS Promotions] on the side and not given them fights because they don’t them to have a champion.

 

Regarding his career

We have had a great career, of course, nothing is perfect. We have the right to make mistakes like humans but this is a great opportunity to show the people that Gamboa, ‘The Hurricane of Guantanamo’ is here.

 

His state of fighting activity and inactivity

Are you worried about that going into the ring with Crawford? “I’m not worried about that one bit.  I’m not only active when a fight presents itself.  For me inactivity is when you are not training at all but I’m always training.

 

50 CENT

Gamboa has been with me from the beginning. I got the opportunity to see his talents early on.  He’s here in Miami training hard and this is going to be a great fight.

 

Malefiftycent

50 Cent was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to premier the trailer for his new Disney film Malefiftycent. Straight comedy with that outfit.

GUnit_NahImTalkingBout

It didn’t take long for the reformed G Unit to hit hard with some new street music. Considering it’s been roughly five years since their last work together, the foursome appropriately come with teh correct energy on this one. You can download the track for free HERE.

Nas_50Cent_SummerJam2014

50 Cent promised to “levitate” Hot 97’s Summer Jam with a special surprise and lived up to his promise with an official G Unit reunion. 50 Cent hit the stage at the end of Nas’ set, marking the first time those former close friends have shared a stage in well over a decade. While Game was noticeably absent, it was a feel good moment for NY Hip Hop to finally see some unity (Fabolous also performs). Unfortunately, the night couldn’t be completely drama-free, as 50’s crew reportedly jumped Slowbucks (a brief scuffle can be seen around the 11:00 mark). We’ll see if this reunion was a one-night thing, or if new music is forthcoming. Either way, this was good promo for 50 Cent’s Animal Ambition album dropping tomorrow (June 3).
