Little Bit of Interesting News (50 Cent and Ja Rule)
50 Cent was pulled over by police in harlem yesterday, but this traffic stop went much more smoothly than the one he had earlier this year.
A crowd gathered as police ticketed 50 Cent, aka Curtis Jackson, for making a wrong turn.
Back in September, 50 Cent was pulled over in a Lamborghini in New York City for making an unsafe lane change, and was also cited for driving with an expired license. Looks like 50 caught a break this time.
Ja Rule Plays Santa in his Old Neighborhood
Ja Rule came home to his old neighborhood and brought toys and games for kids in Jamaica, Queens, yesterday.
"I'm trying to spread some holiday cheer, baby," said Ja Rule. "I came to play Santa today. This is my 'hood. This is where I'm from."
The recipients were students at the Amistad Early Childhood Education Center on 164th Place in Jamaica.
"It was wonderful," said second-grader Clyde Quallis, 7. "I'm so glad Ja Rule came to Amistad. I thank him very much for the present."
Ja Rule made the donation on behalf of LIFE Camp Inc., an organization he co-founded to improve the academic and social behavior of at-risk youth.
"I think it's very nice that he came to the community and that he didn't forget where he came from. I like that," said Ellis, a city education worker.
"It's wonderful that he, a celebrity, can inspire them to do good work," said Janilee Yanny, program director for Amistad.
"He does a lot of positive things, and people don't know that," Salt 'n Pepa member Cheryl (Salt) James said of Ja Rule.
