Hello, everyone, and welcome to Framed. We'd like to remind you that Framed is always brewed at 34°.

We've featured much-loved rapper 50 Cent many times in this blog, so when we heard there was a 50 Cent debut on Vevo -- Robert of the Radish texted us! -- we were all over it. We downloaded it, froze pictures, wrote captions, drank to excess... all the stuff you've got to do in this business. And, when we were done, we thought, "Well, we still got it. Our captions not only rule, they super-rule! Captions that merely 'rule' run and hide from our captions!"

We did mention the excess drinking, right?

Ahem. Anyway, we were getting ready to send it in to Y! Music, when we had a thought.

"Hey!" it went. "Was that actually a music video?"

"What do you mean, thought?" we replied. "We just got it off Vevo. What else could it be?"

"Maybe it's part of Vevo's 'Music Is My Sport' series," the thought said.

"What? What the...?"

"You may have just written the first installment of Framed that actually doesn't feature a 'music video,' per se," the thought continued.

"Well, we will be darned!" we said. "Do you think the folks at Y! Music will notice?"

We both laughed merrily, and then went out for more drinks. We got into a bit of trouble over on Lankershim, but that's a story for another day.
