50 Cent Plans to Feed 1 Billion Kids in Fight Against Hunger

While 50 Cent’s original plan was to feed 1 billion African children in five years, he’s revising it slightly. He thinks he can do it in two and a half years. Pretty impressive!

The rapper has a lot of fundraising irons in the fire to achieve this ambitious goal. First up is his Street King energy drink. He is donating proceeds from sales to the cause. The drink hit shelves this week and has already sold out in many stores nationwide. The high number of pre-orders of the beverage enabled 50 Cent to send the United Nations a check towards hunger programs.

But energy drinks alone won’t feed a billion kids, so 50 Cent is brainstorming all sorts of ways to put food on the table. He said he is in talks with Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Usher and Drake about the initiative.

The rapper said about his fundraising goals, “I’m really serious about it (hunger relief). So far I’ve been able to feed 2.5 million (kids), but I wanna feed a billion. When I said I’d do it in five years, I was being really conservative. I’ll do it a lot faster… I said five years because that’s (the norm) when I create a business plan, but I think I can do it in half that time.”

We can’t wait to see the secret plans he has in the works to raise funds for such a worthwhile goal. Perhaps an album? Or a concert? The possibilities are endless.
