Some call him 50 Cent, others call him “Fiddy,” others call him Curtis Jackson, and some people even know him as Boo Boo. But by any name, he is a true success story, rising out of a life hustling on the streets of South Jamaica, Queens to become a hip-hop superstar, millionaire mogul, actor, producer, philanthropist, and author.

It wasn’t until after a near-death experience that things really started to explode for 50 Cent. Curtis tells us how he built his multi-million dollar empire, despite his humble beginnings and feuds with A-list celebrities.

How many of you have experienced “the awkward wave”? When you think someone is waving at you, so you wave back, only to realize they’re waving at the person behind you? All of us, right? Los Angeles-based writer, director, and comedic actress Issa Rae has made a name for herself turning uncomfortable moments like that into a funny and fearless web series, “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl.” We are already huge fans and that’s why we are featuring her on a new segment called, “One to Watch.” We’re hoping to introduce you to the next big thing and right now we’ve got our eyes on Issa Rae.

Issa finds her best material in awkward moments. So we were very happy when she decided to feature Katie in an exchange that can only be described as awkward.
