50 Cent is releasing a book on “Playground,” inspired by his own experiences on the playground. Told from the perspective of a kid named “Butterball,” 50 hopes the book will help mediate playground conflict amongst kids. “The scenarios in the book are written from the perspective of a child that is being a bully and not dealing with their emotions properly.” While some critics of the book say that the language is too rough for teens and children, 50 Cent believes the book will help bullies understand what is motivating the need to bully other kids.
J Cole, who recently finished up the last portion of a North American tour, recently released his video for the the song “Lost Ones.” The video covers the heavily debated political issue of pro-choice and pro-life political policies and is a video that is three years old.

Despite the success of his current project, J Cole recently told Hot 106’s “Rise & Grind” morning radio show that he has songs that didn’t make The Sideline Story and that he will have an album coming out at the end of June.
