50 Cent Partners with Apple for Home Computer Line

50cent.jpgAccording to Forbes magazine, 50 Cent is in negotiations with Apple Computer to create an affordable line of branded personal computer systems aimed at inner city youth. The controversial MC revealed his plans after landing the #8 slot in Forbes’ Celebrity Power 100 List, right behind names like radio powerhouse Howard Stern and Hollywood icon Steven Spielberg. The Jamaica, Queens native earned his place among the entertainment industry’s elite after bringing home an estimated $41 million in 2005 alone. The Forbes article also delves into 50’s many business ventures outside of the music industry, such as his partnership with Glaceau, the manufacturers of his Formula 50 Vitamin Water, and his deal with Reebok for a line of G-Unit footwear. Readers are also offered some insight into his relationship with his manager, industry powerbroker Chris Lighty. Lighty, whose Violator Management also guides the careers of superstars such as Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliot, offered: “I’m about building branded empires, but this is a dictatorship. Fifty tells me what he wants, and I make it work.”
