Jason Bourne is back! After taking a hiatus from the series, Matt Damon reprises his role as one of the most deadly men in the world. When fans last saw Jason, he’d finally discovered who he was and his amnesia cleared up. “I remember everything.” But remembering isn’t enough.

“Cash Money Records for the 9-9 and the year 2000!” Those words are about as legendary and iconic as a rap opening can get. Word has it that co-owners Bryan “Baby” Williams and Slim are working on a script about one of Hip-Hop’s most legendary labels. “Birdman credited Dr. Dre and Ice Cube’s work on Straight Outta Compton for getting the project off the ground. “For them to do that and to make it trendsetting, they opened doors for us, and I think that what we have is way more special because we’re in modern times.””

Kelly Ripa has not been a very happy camper since news broke that Michael Strahan would be leaving their show for Good Morning America. She hasn’t been seen on the show since, but people haven’t blown a lid because they’re sure she will be back. Kelly makes a little less than $15 million a year but her lifestyle has, allegedly, ensured there’s nothing to worry about. “As one source put it, “She makes a lot of money, but she spends a lot of money, and so does he.”
