50 Cent has heightened the anticipation for his upcoming one-night only This Is 50 Festival by confirming Dipset, D-Block, Maino and more emcees being billed to appear.
In a video trailer for the event, Fif jokingly revealed a few rumored rappers who will support the G-Unit leader's Governor's Island, New York City show.
"Hey, what's up, it's your boy 50 Cent right here," he said in a video. "It's going down October 3rd, Governor's Island. It's gonna be mad people there. It's gonna be -- they didn't let me do Summer Jam so I'm doing my own Summer Jam. You know what I'm saying? I don't wanna say Maino's gonna be there, I don't wanna Uncle Murda is gonna be there, I don't wanna say Cory Gunz, I don't wanna say Ron Browz, none of that. I don't wanna say Dipset, I don't wanna say D-Block, I don't wanna say none of that. I just wanna keep it real low-key like and just let you know you need to be on Governor's Island October 3rd."

Dipset's Juelz Santana recently spoke with SOHH about missing out on attending 50's canceled Family Day event last month in Queens, New York.
"Oh yeah, I was definitely going out there," Santana revealed. "I was trying to come out there on four wheelers. Shout-out to the whole Shadyville, shout-out to the whole Hollis, 40 Projects -- everybody, I don't even wanna start saying names because I might forget. Shout-out to everybody in Queens you know, I f*ck around out there. I got a lot of peoples out there. One of my artists is from out there, Depp, you already know, it's Harlem all day.I was definitely going to be out there on four wheelers. I was gonna pop off on the four wheeler in the middle of the crowd. Like 'what up, what up, what up!'" (SOHH)
Cam'ron recently turned down 50 Cent's offer to appear at the event and said their differences could be publicly squashed in Harlem, New York.
"I'm not going to no show in Queens," Killa said in an interview. "I don't know how true it is -- a few of my people, associates, said he was trying to reach out. But I ain't going to no concert in Queens. Come up to Harlem Week. We could sit down and have the roundtable meeting if you really wanna be serious. Or meet anywhere -- we can meet in Benihana's if you wanna be serious. It don't matter. I'm not squashing a problem we had in Queens at your event. That's the same way he got other artists to come to his shows, whether they was down with Dipset or D-Block or Terror Squad, or whatever the case may be. It ain't no real beef, but we ain't gonna squash what we had at a Queens event. We'll meet halfway -- Triborough Bridge. (MTV)
