(RIP) to "Mazaradi Fox" Green, a former G-Unit affiliate who was gunned down in Queens, New York on Friday (January 3, 2014). Rapper Mazaradi Fox, who was friends with hip hop's 50 Cent was gunned down in Queens by a masked shooter on Saturday.

In 2009, Fox pumped two .25-caliber bullets into Queens gangbanger Rashawn Carter, authorities said. The victim survived the shooting. Charged with attempted murder, Fox was later convicted of attempted assault and sent to prison.

Fox was murdered Friday afternoon in Jamaica, Queens, by a lone gunman at 134th Ave. and Farmers Blvd. No arrests were made in the slaying of the 42-year-old career criminal, who was released from prison on Dec. 20.

Fox was riding shotgun alongside his girlfriend when the shooter rolled up to his white Nissan SUV and began spraying the vehicle with bullets, cops said.

The girlfriend, who was driving, suffered a graze wound to the neck, while a 21-year-old male passenger was critically injured with bullet wounds to the neck and shoulder.

Mazi was a real stand up dude, an official street cat and family man. May he rest in peace and God bless his family, friends and associates.

"50 Cent was in his New York studio and was saddened when he heard the news. He sends his condolences to Mazaradi's family," said a rep for 50-Cent.

 Final Interview

"Sooooooooouuuuul Train" producer "Don Cornelius" gives an interview to "HipHollywood" and it might of been one of his last, as he talks about celebrating the 40th anniversary of "Soul Train" and the unexpected impact it had on the industry.

On February 1, 2012 after a divorce and suffering from an illness "Don Cornelius" took his life with a gun shot to the head.

"Soul Train" began in Chicago in 1970 but aired nationally from 1971 to 2006, showcasing artists such as Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and Barry White.

"Cornelius" stepped down as host of the hit show in 1993.

It was credited with helping to tear down racial barriers, bringing black music into the cultural mainstream and showcasing soul and funk to a national audience.


A remembrance to celebrate "Don's" life is being planned for February 17, but the place and guests have yet to be confirmed. In the meantime, his son Tony looks forward to creating a foundation in his father's name to help others who are struggling. "There are quite a few kids that are committing suicide," he spilled. "Many times out of tragedy comes help."

1/2 of the "Bay Area's" female MC group "Conscious Daughters", "Special One" was found dead in her apartment on December 10, 20011.

"Special One" was discovered in her apartment by Carla "CMG" Green, the other half of "Conscious Daughters". Her cause of death is still unknown.

The duo dropped three studio albums: "Ear to the Street" (1993), "Gamers" (1996) and "The Nutcracker Suite" (2009) and were pioneers not only as female mc's in the "Bay", but as rappers in the "Bay".

Born "Karryl Smith", "Special One" achieved world wide and "Bay Area" fame in 1993, when the group's debut reached No. 126 on the Billboard 200. The singles "Something To Ride To" (Fonky Expedition) and "We Roll Deep" were both hits, and the "Daughters" earned big credit for mixing street attitude with female empowerment.


"Special One" and "CMG" had been prepping songs for a fourth "Concious Daughters" album with a deal inked and distribution deal with Sony Red.



I hope "Special One" got some verses down, that can be used, and I hope the album is still album to be released as a tribute to her.

Our thoughts and our prayers go out to "Special Ones" family and friends, and thank you for being a rap pioneer for women and the "Bay".
