For The Record: 50 Cent, DJ Whoo Kid, Barack Obama, Plain White T’s, Korn & More

50 Cent

Some people give their friends books or cool framed photos to remember them by. 50 Cent? He gives new BFFs like "Streets of Fire" co-star Val Kilmer a $100,000 cherry 1965 Chevy Impala. Fif, call us, we gotta hang out!

In related 50 Cent news, the NYPD said they don’t know anything about it, but according to a post on 50 Cent’s site, his DJ, Whoo Kid, was arrested for driving without a license on Thursday while tooling around the city in Fif’s $300,000, chrome-plated Lamborghini. We said earlier today that the G-Unit General is a good friend to have, but even we wouldn’t let someone take out this kind of ride without a license.

A Hillary Clinton endorsement? Not bad. Jimmy Carter, Walter Mondale, they're okay. But Bob Dylan? Senator Obama, the times they are officially a-changin'.

The Plain White T's are bunking in a big house in Malibu, California, recording the follow-up to their breakthrough Every Second Counts album. The still-untitled CD is slated for a September 16 release. Also, the band's massive hit, "Hey There Delilah," just became the fourth song in history, and the first rock tune, to top the 3 million mark in paid digital downloads.

Seems like Korn fans are getting their bondage pants in a bunch over rumors that singer Jonathan Davis might be working with English producer Guy Sigsworth (Björk, Britney Spears, Alanis Morissette) on his solo debut. Um, did they already forget that the band worked with the Matrix (Avril Lavigne, Hillary Duff) a few years ago?

Speaking of Korn, former guitarist, Brian "Head" Welch, is slated to release his solo debut, Save Me From Myself, on September 9.

Remember that Bobby Brown memoir that was going to include all kinds of juicy stories about the singer's tumultuous marriage to Whitney Houston? Well, it may not be coming out after all.

One day after his song "Black President" landed all over the Internet, Nas has flooded cyberspace again with his untitled album's first official single, "Hero." The track was produced by Polow Da Don. Nas' LP has been pushed back from July 1 to July 15.
