January 24: 50 Cent “Shuts Down Worldstar” (2011)
January 24, 2011 – On This Date In Hip-Hop, 50 Cent shut down Worldstar – at least that’s what he claimed when the site was knocked offline. I mean, why wouldn’t he though, two years prior, Fif had sued the media giant for using is image in a banner ad without his permission (a lawsuit he would win in 2014).
The site’s owner, Q, would dial up Angie Martinez to reveal the real reason behind the site going offline. In true 50 fashion, the G-Uniter gets on a 3-way call with Q and Angie and the antics begin.
