50 Cent gets charitable

Like we said yesterday, rappers often don't get a very good press; mostly this is their own fault, complaining about 'bitches' and casually lobbing homophobic abuse about the place, but every now and again you get some nice touches form the hip-hop community. Yesterday it was The Game, today it's 50 Cent.

The once-upon-a-rapper, who hasn't released anything worth listening to for at least five or six years, is releasing a new drink, the profits of which he hopes will feed a billion African children. It's sounds pretty implausible, but a nice thought nonetheless. Fiddy is putting out his Street King drink in the USA this week, and proceeds from the sale of every drink will go to help provide food for African children – he's even working with the Pure Growth Partners on the subject. Here he is talking about it.
