1. 50 Cent apologizes for doubting Megan Thee Stallion

In a rare occurrence, 50 Cent is apologizing for comments he made about Megan Thee Stallion. During a radio interview with REAL 92.3’s Big Boy, the Queens rapper admitted he needed to apologize to the Houston rapper because he was caught up in inaccurate social media reports about what happened. “I’m gonna apologize to Megan Thee Stallion,” 50 told Big Boy. “I said some things, and it was because… On social media, I posted things that — when she was with Gayle [King] — she said, ‘Were you intimate with Tory Lanez?’ And she said, ‘What?’ and it was like, ‘No.’ And I was like, ‘Ah, she lying.’ At that point I knew she was lying, it wouldn’t be no reason for them to be around each other. From that, it felt like she was lying, to me.”

Additionally, he said the reason he “should apologize to her,” is “because when I heard the [jail] phone conversation [between Lanez and Meg’s former best friend Kelsey Harris] … That made me feel like, ‘Oh s**t, now I know what happened.’ I’m sure that was probably what swayed people in court too.”

Last month, 50 Cent shared a meme on Instagram comparing Megan to Jussie Smollett, captioning the post: “Damn I’m confused all this sh– going around I don’t know what to think LOL.”

4. American rapper Meek Mill apologizes for shooting music video inside Ghana’s presidential villa

Meek Mill spent part of his December in Ghana, where he headlined the Afronation concert. For the American rapper, it was a time to connect with his African roots, a desire he had previously shared on Twitter. During his time in Ghana, Meek Mill visited the presidential villa where he met with the Ghanaian president, Nana Akufo-Addo. During his visit, Meek Mill shot some scenes inside the presidential palace, and these scenes were featured in his promotional video. The video drew criticism from Ghanaians who shared their displeasure on Twitter, where they described his actions as disrespectful.

The American rapper has taken to his Twitter account to apologize to the people of Ghana for any displeasure his action might have caused. According to him, his action was inspired by his desire to appreciate the culture. “My apologies to the people if any disrespect! We still gonna push to make the connection between black people in America and Africa … what I’m trying to do is more than a video and you should see coming soon! My apologies to the office also!” The tweets read. Meek Mill also deleted the video and explained that he hopes to continue uniting African Americans and Africans through his music.
