WorldStarHIpHop is back online. According to several sources, federal authorities shut down the popular urban website, WorldStarHipHop.com. WorldStar is known for showing rap videos, footage of rappers engaging in ignorant behavior, fights, newsclips and the occasional sex tape. Reports are that they were shut down by Homeland Security.
Federal authorities have already shut down the sites, OnSmash and Rap Godfathers, last year as well as several torrent sites. Rapper 50 Cent has claimed that he is responsible on Twitter:
I put worldstar to bed, you don’t believe try me I will shut your sh*t down. Lol
I don’t know why people underestimate me. I just shut down WORLDSTAR for future advertising contact thisis50.com suckers lol.
According to HotSpot Atl, Q from WorldStarHipHop is claiming that it was server issues rather than federal authorities or 50 Cent that shut down WorldStarHipHop.
