2. The Kid’s Got Game
We never had a chance to really see 50 Cent playing basketball but could his son be destined for a college hoops career and possibly an NBA future? Bossip is all over it:
50 Cent’s Son Marquise Jackson is a 5’9 senior point guard at St John’s Military Academy. This weekend Marquise showed that he could knock down threes and run a team. The son of the famous rapper scored 20 points against number 1 ranked prep school in the country Brewster Academy and shot 75% from the field. (Bossip)
Does he really have skills or was this just a lucky game? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. She Speaks
On a more serious note, the mother of slain teen Michael Brown has spoken out following yesterday’s shocking verdict of no charges being made against the shooter. The Daily Beast is on it:
In the wake of the St. Louis County grand jury decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, the central tragedy of the case—the death of a young man—has often gone overlooked as the violence and the unrest and the politics have taken center stage.
For a while, this video bucks the trend, as the focus is on the teen’s death and a mother’s grief as she addresses a crowd of protesters near the Ferguson police station. Soon, though, voices from off camera begin shouting for retribution, not justice, chanting “Burn this b**** down.” (The Daily Beast)
