Teamwork Thursday. It's all about putting in some teamwork today and what better way to start things off than watching Nicki Minaj leave her team for good? Uh-oh? Is Chris Brown in need of some help, especially after those neighbors with the kids started hounding him? Suge Knight to the rescue? One artist he should consider calling up is 50 Cent because the mega millionaire can't understand how his album sales don't equal the same amount in awards. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. I'm Leavin'

There's no reason to panic, Nicki Minaj is not leaving her Young Money team but instead the friends and enemy she made while at "American Idol." After all of the rumors went wild for weeks and weeks, it's official, Nicki is ready to move on to bigger things. Us Magazine has more:

Another seat at the American Idol judges' table will soon be up for grabs. On the heels of Randy Jackson's announcement that he's leaving the show after 12 seasons -- and amid rumors that producers are firing the remaining three panelists -- Us Weekly hears that Nicki Minaj will not return to the competition come fall. "It's safe to say she isn't coming back to Idol," an insider tells Us, adding that the "Roman Holiday" rapper will be focusing on her next album, touring, and endorsements. "She's okay with it. She had a great time but was only going to do one season anyway." (Us Magazine)

Even though this is yet another "insider," the overall mood has been that the experiment of Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey did not go over very well. Maybe if the beef had gotten more serious or maybe if they never beefed at all, things would have turned out differently. What's next for Nicki? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Knight & Shining Armor

Is Chris Brown in need of some serious help? So much that he would have to call up Suge Knight for assistance? It looks like Chris either bumped into the Death Row Records former owner or else they have something going on. Illseed has the inside:

ALERT!!!! THIS IS AN UNIVERSAL INTERGALATIC ILLSEED.COM EXCLUSIVE! Very simply - CHRIS BROWN AND SUGE KNIGHT WERE SEEN TOGETHER - HANGING OUT!!!! What are they scheming!? Is Suge "managing" him now like he managed Katt Williams! THIS IS AN UNIVERSAL INTERGALATIC ILLSEED.COM EXCLUSIVE!!!!!!!!!! (Illseed)

Could this just be dumb luck or is there something really brewing between Knight and Chris? Suge could be a great look for Chris if he needs someone to convince neighbors his goblin paintings are not bothering anyone. Is there a chance Chris and Suge are going to be doing business together? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Numbers Don't Lie

50 Cent could retire right now and have more money than he probably ever imagined. He continues to invest into things outside of music but when you look at all of the success he has had with the albums he's put out, you have to wonder why they have not been honored with Grammy Awards, BMI Awards, BET Awards and so on. Hard Knock TV has his take on the issue:

"Within music culture for you to be connected to a company or corporation meant you wasn't being an artist...That wasn't even supposed to happen. When you watch the awards shows you'll notice cause my trophy case don't match the sales. But hey, Kanye get the trophies. I'll get the check." (Hard Knock TV)

Does 50 make a good point? He's talked about this for many years but as he nears his 40's and it seems more and more evident that his interest is outside of the music industry with Street King, boxing, movies and so on. Are there any awards he was really cheated on or did they all deserve to lose? If you think about it, Nas has yet to win a Grammy after all these years too. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
