- 50 CentBack in 2011, 50 Cent ignited his Street King initiative. With a goal to feed one billion African children, 50 partnered with New York company Pure Growth Partners, releasing the Street King Energy shot. For each shot purchased, a child in Africa receives a meal.
50 Cent has been everywhere as of late and is showing no signs of slowing down. In the past few weeks, Fif has announced an upcoming independent album titled Animal Ambition, ruffled the feathers with comments about his G-Unit running mates, released a new music video for his song “Pilot”, and debuted a new song with Trey Songz. As if he didn’t have enough on his plate already, it is now being reported that he’ll star alongside Jude Law, Melissa McCarthy, and Jason Statham in the action/comedy movie Spy which will begin shooting this month in Budapest.
Fifty has now carved out a nice acting career after making his debut in Get Rich or Die Tryin’ in 2005. It is unclear how he will fit into Spy but he will apparently play himself. The film will be directed by Paul Feig, best known for his work on the 2011 comedy Bridesmaids.—Peter Walsh
