Right now there is no hotter item online than the Nike Mag. The high top sneaker that was famously featured in Back To The Future Part II and only just made available now, has been put up for auction to raise money for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. While most auctions on eBay are currently sitting between $4000-$5000, UK rapper Tinie Tempah was the very first person to buy a pair. His price? $37,500! Tinie says he’s a huge fan of the movie and the exorbitant purchase was an impulse buy. “It was a total spur of the moment decision,” he told TMZ. “I was really touched in the moment by the presentation and next thing I knew I owned these iconic sneakers. I feel fortunate to be able to help.”
Master “Make ‘Em Say Ugh” P is looking to drop some pounds and help promote better health and fitness across the U.S. He will attempt to lose 40 pounds in the span of 90 days as part of Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign. He will travel across the country with his son Romeo and encourage fans to exercise every day, practice healthy eating habits and take vitamins and supplements. Other celebs taking part in the campaign include Paul Pierce, Justin Bieber, Ron Artest, Terry Miles, Meagan Good and Jason Derulo. (Via AllHipHop)
The 50 Cent movie where he lost all of that weight and looked terrifying is set to be released in 2012. Image Entertainment has acquired the rights to Things Fall Apart, the football drama co-written by Fiddy, which saw him lose 60 pounds for the role. Says the rapper about the film, “I hope people get a chance to get to see how excited I am about challenging myself in different ways. Because it’s not an action film—it’s a family drama—I was advised not to do it.” (Via HipHopDX)
Lil Wayne is no longer in the taxman’s bad books. Weezy paid off his $5.6 million IRS lien, which stems from both back taxes owed from the years of 2008 and 2009, and a penalty that was assessed 20 days after the rapper was released from a nine-month stint in prison on weapon possession charges.
