The recurring ‘Masters of Ceremony’ rap show next happens in NYC on November 3 at Barclays Center with a stacked lineup including 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, The LOX, T-Pain, Jeezy, Fabolous, Beanie Sigel and Freeway. Tickets are on sale now.
50 Cent also appears at the Funk Flex Anniversary Party at Highline Ballroom on Saturday (9/30) with Rotimi (tickets), and he’s got some other stuff going on too. Tonight (9/27), his new sketch comedy show 50 Central premieres on BET at 10:30 PM Eastern. “Technically it’s a variety show, but it has a lot of different things in it,” 50 told ABC News. “It feels like a talent search, almost, and showcasing a lot of new talent from different people and different categories and stuff like that.”
There’s also a new 42-minute video of 50 being interviewed by Hot 97 and Beats 1 DJ Ebro Darden, and they discuss tons of stuff, from Trump to Jay-Z’s new album to the death of New York hip hop (he goes back and forth with Ebro over the last point, with both 50 and Ebro blaming each other for said death). You can watch that video below.
As for the other artists on the ‘Masters of Ceremony’ bill: Busta Rhymes is featured on the great new Rapsody album. The LOX (aka Jadakiss, Styles P, and Sheek Louch) have been active all year since the release of their first album in 16 years. T-Pain will also be in NYC on his acoustic tour with support from Smino. Jeezy recently dropped a new track with Lil Durk and Future that you can hear below.
