Scarface Arrested at 2015 BET Hip-Hop Awards on Unpaid Child Support Charges

042315MusicScarface

Damn. Sometimes if you know you got to pay, you have to figure the best thing to do is not show up at a high profile event if you owe.

Boombox.com reports that Scarface’s honorary tribute at the 2015 BET Hip-Hop Awards ended on a sour note after the rap legend was reportedly arrested backstage after receiving his prestigious I Am Hip-Hop Award on Friday (Oct. 9).

According to photographer/blogger Freddy-O, the Houston rhymer was leaving the stage when reportedly 10 sheriffs approached ‘Face and subsequently arrested him. Insiders informed the blogger that Scarface was taken into custody for an outstanding warrant in the State of Texas for unpaid child support. Freddy-O writes:

Scarface was so concerned about accepting his award and not disappointing his fans he risked being arrested. Snoop was back stage when Scarface was arrested and was upset that; the great moment ended on a sour note. The incident resulted in the show being delayed.”

As we previously reported, Scarface received the coveted I Am Hip-Hop Award for his venerable career in rap music. Fellow rapper Ludacris presented the honor to the former Geto Boys rhymer who delivered a very short acceptance speech. “I’m not (expletive) without y’all,” he said while raising the award in the air before walking off.

Reps for Scarface had no comment on the matter. According to AllHipHop.com, the veteran rapper was in great spirits before he accepted his award and there was no indication that something was awry.

Hopefully, Scarface has rectify his situation and is out of police custody. This is not how a rap legend should go out at a hip-hop awards show.

In the meantime, the 2015 BET Hip-Hop Awards will air on BET on Oct. 13 at 8PM ET. To check out photos from the event, head over to BET.com.

50 Cent Blames Empire’s Rating Drop on ‘Too Much Gay Stuff’

empire_50_cent_gay_stuff

50 Cent is back to his old antics again with starting beef, only this time it’s with Lee Daniel’s hit show Empire!

Huffingtonpost reports that viewership for the second episode of this season of “Empire” was down 2.3 million people — 18 percent — and 50 Cent thinks he knows why.

The rapper took to Instagram to blame it on all the “gay stuff.” Ugh.

More precisely, 50 Cent posted a screengrab of a post from Industry on Blast’s Instagram account that was captioned, “There are 3 million less [sic] viewers who tuned into last night’s Empire episode!!!! did you watch it? We could not take the extra gay stuff or celebrity stuff last night!!!!”

For the few non-“Empire”-watchers out there: One of the lead characters on the show, Jamal Lyons, played by Jussie Smollett, is an openly gay musician who was tapped to be the CEO of Empire Entertainment at the end of Season 1. The Season 2 premiere also featured a plotline about an effort to use female sex appeal to convince a lesbian investor, played by Marisa Tomei, to invest in a new music company.

Despite the drop, the ratings for the second episode of “Empire” in the coveted 18-49 demo were still good enough to handily beat every other scripted show on TV last week.

Viewership for the Fox show is also about four times higher than that of the top-rated episode of “Power,” the drama that 50 Cent produces for Starz. It wouldn’t be a stretch to connect 50 Cent’s insensitive social media commentary on “Empire” to the rivalry between the two shows, both of which feature mostly black casts.

50 Cent, for his part, recanted his Instagram comments — sort of. He took down the original post and put up, in its stead, the following photo:

 

The photo was captioned, “It must be a slow news week, they’re gonna say 50 said Empire lost 3 million views because of to much gay shit. He only said cookie call me, but the fucking kid is fucking up the show. Now every one is waiting for POWER, I told him to lay low.”

50 Cent’s defense seems to be that he wasn’t the one who wrote the original caption talking about the “gay stuff” — he just reposted it! But his sincerity is undercut by his reference to Jamal as “the fucking kid […] fucking up the show.” Not to mention the fact that his Instagram profile lacks the crucial social media disclaimer “Reposts ≠ endorsements”!

But website Oh No They Didn’t proved otherwise regarding her tally.

After going over the ratings stats on Brazilian website Contém POP posters on ONTD revealed

“Looking into the detailed report of the event ratings, we can see the number is completely false.”

“With 2.1 points higher than the second place Adam Lambert and Queen, the report says. 1 rating point is equivalent to 67.000 people watching. This means Rihanna only had 502,000 people watching.”

On this week’s past episode of Empire, Taraji P. Henson’s character Cookie made a comment about Jennifer Lopez’s singing ability, and it was not kindly.

“Ain’t nothing wrong with a couple of JLos…as long as they can really sing.”

Last night  Lee Daniels apologized to Jennifer

Empire creator  Lee Daniels apologized for Cookie’s line on the show…and even offered her a guest starring role on FOX’s hit show.
