Money Jay the newest soldier on Akon's Konvict Music label

When Money Jay boasts that he's "strapped up like the military," on his hit single "Death Row," he isn't just saying that to be saying it. As the newest soldier on Akon's Konvict Music label, he is more than equipped to declare war on anybody standing in his path to rap dominance.

Born Tysen Bolden in the Bronx, New York, Money Jay moved to Decatur, Georgia at the age of two. His stay-at-home mother and truck driver father sought solace in the South, hoping to raise their family in a safer and slower environment. But trouble knows no borders.

3GM Interviews Charice, aka Sunshine from the hit series Glee!

3GM Interviews Charice, aka Sunshine from the hit series Glee!

Last week Filipino recording star Charice, who plays foreign exchange student Sunshine Corazon brought the noise did the dang thang on her return to “Glee”.

Sunshine, joined the glee club in the season two premiere, after Rachel, threatened during a "Telephone" diva-off, sent her to a crack den at the end of the second-season premiere.

3GM along with everyone else can’t decide if she really is a spy. But we do know that the girl can sing.
"I'm such a better singer than anyone else," Sunshine declares. "I'm all alone at the top."
When you make comments like that you better be able to back it up and Sunshine (Charice) does.
 

Despite how busy she is on set filming Glee, Charice was kind enough to answer a few questions for your favorite girls on the mic...and no we are not singers!
