Last summer, rapper Juicy J announced via Twitter that he was going to award "...a 50K scholarship to the best chick that can twerk." Despite the huge response from fans, Juicy insists that twerking was not an actual requirement to win. "50K is a lot of money and I don't want to waste it on some chick twerkin' her ass," he says. "Next time I send a Tweet out about a scholarship take it serious and read the words!"
He awarded the money to Zaire Holmes, a 19-year-old mother and student at the State College of Florida who did read all of the rules and explained in a video (which she did not twerk in) why she deserved the money. "A lot of people thought you had to twerk, but you actually had to read the rules," explains Holmes. "I'm a biology major so the scholarship would be able to cover all of my lab expenses."
Looks like Coolio is trading in his Gangsta's Paradise for an electric range. The 90s rapper has put 123 of his songs up for auction on Royalty Exchange to help fund his cookbook series Cooking With Coolio, the first of which was released back in 2009. He also plans to invest in an online cooking series, and if it is anything like his 2008 YouTube project, we can't wait to check it out.
