25 Collaborations 50 Cent Should Consider

Earlier this week, 50 Cent dropped his new DJ Drama-hosted mixtape, The Lost Tape. Like he’s done on his mixtapes for years, Fif brought along some of his G-Unit cohorts for the party, as Kidd Kidd and Precious Paris—in addition to artists like Eminem, Snoop Dogg, 2 Chainz, Jeremih and Robbie Nova—make appearances. Throughout his career, Fif has surely collaborated with some heavyweights—from Dr. Dre to Mary J. Blige to Justin Timberlake. But he hasn't always been the quickest to put himself out there for collaborations with some of the game's biggest names. Here, XXL offers 25 collaborations that 50 hasn't done yet that he should consider. —XXL Staff

Who is Kaeun That Will Join After School?

As news of Kahi’s graduation from After School has been revealed, much attention has been on who the new girl Kaeun is.

Kaeun, who was chosen as the new student of After School in April, is now 17 years old. After School’s agency Pledis Entertainment revealed, “Out of the artists in our agency, Kaeun has the most powerful dancing skills with very attractive singing skills as well.” With a baby face and a superior body, she has been known as After School’s ‘Bagel Girl.’

Also, she spent her middle school years in Japan, so she also is fluent in Japanese. K-Pop fans have mentioned that another reason Kaeun was added to aid in After School’s Japanese promotions.

After School is the only known idol group in Korea to have the graduation process. Kahi is the second member to graduate after Bekah, who graduated last July. The newly changed nine member group After School will be making a comeback through their new album on June 21.


after school's bagel girl they say. can we discuss how ridiculous is the fact that kahi apparently won't be part of their next comeback and won’t be able to properly say goodbye to the fandom and how scary is that they are saying their activities will be as a rebranded/new after school.

CL talks about Sandara's "100 takes of kisses" with Lee Minho

2NE1 leader CL expressed her honest thoughts on Sandara Park and Lee Min Ho‘s famous kiss scene from 2009.
CL and Lee Dong Wook who were filming an advertisement for CASS Beer sat down for an interview on the June 6th broadcast of SBS ‘One Night Of TV Entertainment‘.
Ahead of CL, fellow member Sandara Park (Dara) and actor Lee Min Ho had been selected as models to endorse the famous brand of beer.
Dara and Lee Min Ho reportedly had to film their kiss scene over 100 times, and CL had her doubts about whether or not that many takes were really necessary.
“I was on set to cheer her on,” CL said. She evoked laughter by adding, “I did not understand why they needed to film for that long. They seemed to go out of their way to drag it out.”
Lee Dong Wook was then asked about the level of skinship with CL in their own CF, and the actor looked disappointed as he said, “We didn’t even touch hands.”

Leeteuk talks about the arguments between Super Junior members on Strong Heart

On the most recent episode of SBS “Strong Heart,” Secret‘s Sunhwa confessed in tears that she had felt left out by fellow members from time to time. Upon Sunhwa’s confession, Super Junior‘s Lee Teuk started talking about teamwork among idol groups. He said, “Sometimes, members of idol groups get into arguments and fights due to misunderstandings. We have gotten into fist fights. There’s been a time when we got into arguments during meals and just flipped the dinner table out of frustration and anger.”
Lee Teuk then started talking about the most recent fight the members of Super Junior had. He explained, “Recently, we got into an argument after winning the ‘Mutizen Song’ from SBS ‘Inkigayo.’ We had to go film KBS ‘Let’s Go! Dream Team‘ after ‘Inkigayo,’ so we were headed to the filming set. On our way there, we didn’t talk to each other and some of us even took a separate car to get there.”
Eun Hyuk added, “When we got there, we couldn’t work as a team. Everyone was eliminated in the beginning. I was the last person to run the obstacle course and when I won the first place, I thought about my Super Junior members and started tearing up. They were all I could think of.” Eun Kyuk admitted that this experience brought him and the rest of Super Junior closer together.
Lee Teuk concluded with a little tip for all the other idol groups to remain together and thrive for success together, “To be honest, I can be a little harsh on my members. But my belief is that, no one should keep their concerns and complaints to themselves in a team. Everyone has to be able to talk about their inner most feelings to keep a team together.”
