Many of Hip-Hop’s biggest stars have been giving back during this holiday season, spreading love to those in need.

Three of them, Fetty Wap, T.I., and 50 Cent, had events servicing their community, and people were smiling ear-to-ear in gratitude.

Fetty Wap, a New Jersey native, hosted his giveaway on Tuesday, November 22nd, in Patterson, NJ, providing the community with bags full of must-haves for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, according to CBS.

The “Trap Queen” artist partnered with Colleges Achieve School, led by Dr. Gemar Mills to help about 500 family members. Fetty Wap was not in attendance because he is currently in prison for dealing kilos of cocaine, but his family members came out in proxy.

On the same day, T.I. hosted his 17th Annual Turkey Giveaway to hundreds in Northwest Atlanta, KWCH reports. This charitable effort did more than give away birds, but also provided bags (branded by Humana, the partner) of meal essentials.

“I can’t say how much this event means because I know now people in this area deserve to have a happy holiday,” Tip said. “They deserve to eat with their families and be at peace, just like everyone else does. So whatever we can do to provide that for them it brings me, my wife, my children the utmost honor.”

Queens native and new Houston transplant 50 Cent hooked up with the Houston Rockets’ Clutch City Foundation to help the underserved and vulnerable through his G-Unity Foundation.

The meal included a turkey and food items donated by the G-Unity Foundation, Kroger, and Spec’s. In total, Fif blessed 1,000 people.

In addition to the food, guests received a ticket voucher to an upcoming Rockets home game, Click 2 Houston stated.

While not a rapper, Usher, another Atlanta hero, hosted a holiday giveback on Wednesday, November 23rd, at the Freedom Village Family Service Center in Sandy Springs, GA.

Like the artists, we hope all have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.

Eminem, 50 Cent & Dr. Dre Reunite On ‘Curtain Call 2’ Collab ‘Is This Love (’09)’

Eminem, 50 Cent and Dr. Dre have reunited on an unearthed song called “Is This Love (’09),” from Slim Shady’s newly-released compilation album Curtain Call 2.

As the title suggests, the track was originally recorded in 2009 — the same year Eminem made his post-Encore comeback with Relapse — and finds the close-knit trio connecting for a playful song about romantic and sexual infatuation.

“Girl, I’m diggin’ your whole MO/Give me a go, you’re throwin’ innuendo/Keep sendin’ me smoke signals/Everything’s movin’, spinning in slow M-O-T-I-O-N,” Em raps over bouncy production from Dr. Dre, Mark Batson and Trevor Lawrence Jr.

50 Cent, meanwhile, channels his inner Slim Shady with a rapid-fire, acronym-riddled verse full of shock value. Judging by at least one lyric, 50 recorded his rhymes much later than ’09.

“I kill a bitch with a potato peeler for the skrilla/I’m finna skin a sinner, dick robbed like Bruce Jenner,” he spits, referencing Caitlyn Jenner’s 2015 gender transition.

“Is This Love (’09)” is one of three new songs on Curtain Call 2 alongside “From the D 2 the LBC” featuring Snoop Dogg and the CeeLo Green-assisted “The King and I,” which also appears on the Elvis soundtrack.

Curtain Call 2‘s primary purpose, though, is serving as a highlight reel of Eminem’s decorated catalog since the release of his first greatest hits album, Curtain Call: The Hits, in 2005.
