Will you be drinking 50 Cent’s “juice” for a good cause??
50 Cent is making good on his promise to help feed one billion children. The Hip Hop mogul has teamed up with Pure Growth Partners to launch Street King, an energy shot that will supply a child in need with a meal for every shot purchased (via HHNM).
The shot will launch in September and be availale in Orange Mango and Grape flavors. For $2.49 to $2.99, the shot contains 100 percent natural flavors, no artifical colors and caffeine derived from coffee beans. Each shot has no calories, carbohydrates or sugar, and is fortified with gingko biloba and vitamins.
“50 Cent and I share a common vision: to address the world’s problems through smart and sustainable business models,” Clarke said in a statement. “With the rampant starvation in Africa and hunger afflicting children worldwide, we need socially responsible businesses that affect real change now more than ever. And Street King can set the bar for future generations to come.”
“I’m inspired by [Clarke’s] vision and innovative approaches to tackling serious issues,” added Fif in a statement. “It’s our mission with Street King to really change children’s lives around the world,” Jackson said in a statement.”
As admirable as this whole project is, we can’t help but feel that Fif is just reaching for a way to stay relevant. Yes, there are many hungry children in the world that could use this money, but Curtis Jackson the do-gooder is a far cry from the bullet-proof thug ninja that we used to know…
