Five-year-old Albert is using his own version of the Ice Bucket Challenge to encourage people to become organ donors. <span class=

A 5-year-old boy from the United Kingdom needs a new heart and is using his own version of the Ice Bucket Challenge to get the word out.

Albert Tansey has a rare heart condition where he was born with an undeveloped left ventricle, according to the UK publication the Express. He is now in need of a heart transplant.

Deviating from the standard, nominate-donate-bucket format, Albert uses his own illness to call attention to the need for organ donors and encourage people to join the donor registry.

Because of his condition, it's not safe for Albert to be doused with freezing cold water, so he opts for confetti instead.

His video has gone viral with more than 408,000 shares on Facebook and several thousand views on YouTube.

It's no secret that the former Death Row CEO's fianances are constantly embroiled in drama and AllHipHop is claiming that Suge owed Abou "Bu" Thiam $250,000 and got fed up with waiting on that payment.

Bu is a well-known music industry executive who happens to be both Akon's brother as well as Chris Brown's manager. There isn't any concrete evidence of the latest allegations but once your name gets thrown into a rumor, it's generally hard removing the mud stains.
The incident in question occurred on August 24 right before the 2014 MTV VMAs. Knight has been slowly recovering from his injuries since then

The megastar rapper donned not one but two Maison Martin Margiela masks for his performance, which spliced classics from his early discography but was heavy on the Yeezus side (including two renditions of "Blood on the Leaves").
