Rapper 50 Cent Signs a Major Deal with Pepsi


Your Black World reports.

The rapper 50 Cent has signed a major deal with Pepsi to distribute his energy drink.   The rapper’s drink, called “Street King,” was created to raise funds to feed hungry children in African (and also to make a profit, we’re sure). 

The rapper tweeted about the deal this week:  "I did a deal with pepsi to distribute streetking its gonna be every were (sic) buy a bottle a feed some one in need."

50 Cent has been highly entrepreneurial over the years.  In 2008, he created a line of condoms called “Magic Stick,” and in 2007, he sold his stake in a vitamin water company co-owned with Glaceau (Formula 50), earning over $100 million after taxes.

The rapper became famous after the 2003 release of his hit album, “Get Rich or Die Tryin,” and then followed up with “The Massacre” in 2005.  He also made a movie called “Get Rich or Die Tryin” alongside Terrence Howard in 2005.
