But whose fault is that?

Pink hair don't care on this new contagious track.
Remember when that remix circulated of a recycled Nicki verse tacked on to Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair"? Well, a collaboration has actually happened this time, as the Nickster joins Will and Jada's youngest on the former's new track, "Fireball".
The G-Unit General's new book stabs at social responsibility
While 50 Cent hasn't managed to release a new album in about two years (or a good one in about four) he’s still kept quite busy being a rich guy.

While his second album, “Future History,” may not be a huge expansion on his formula, Derulo’s fans should be pleased with the results and everyone will still have something upbeat to listen to while they try on sneakers.
