50 Wins, Worldstarhiphop Loses

Man, this is circulating around the internet like crazy. Apparently, according to HipHopDX and Complex, 50 Cent has shut down Worldstarhiphop.com. Back in 2009, 50 Cent and WSHH had beef. Per the video below, 50 claims that Rick Ross was paying WSHH to attack 50. 50 filed a lawsuit against WSHH claiming copyright infringement. On a show here in Atlanta with Greg Street, 50 claimed that he would tie WSHH in litigation so long they wouldn’t be able to afford a Subway. And those joints are 5 dollars. Lol. Two years later, and the site appears to be offline.

“I got a lawsuit against WorldStar for utilizing my likeness,” 50 Cent said. “A lot of people thought that was my site because they saw my face on the cover of an infringement with iRobot for a long time. They should really be nice to me, because I have lawyers and retainers. I pay them so much anyway that we’ll just go back and forth in court until you can’t afford a Subway sandwich.”

Here are tweets from 50 Cent:

“I don’t know why people underestimate me. I just shut down WORLDSTAR for future advertising contact thisis50.com suckers lol”

“I predict 2 more web sites will shut down this week. Take a guess who they are. I’m sick of the hate I’m to strong.”

WorldStarHipHop has been under scrutiny from HipHopDX and others for stream ripping. Stream ripping is a process of taking video from other sites video players and using it as their own. Interesting. I just tried to access the website. It seems like they are suffering from a DoS attack instead of total shut down.

From comments I’m reading, while WSHH was a popular site, they were known for a negative view of hip-hop and the African American culture. A lot of people are applauding 50 Cent for his actions. Let’s see how long this lasts and how long WSHH stays offline.
