50 Cent Performs for Charity Event in New York City

The proceeds from the event went towards the charity of the Duchess of York, the Sarah Ferguson Foundation, which provides humanitarian aid to children in need. 50 told the Associated Press he was going to donate his six-figure performance fee for the event to his G-Unity charity. “My G-Unity foundation, I’ve already donated over $3 million,” 50 told the AP. “I don’t really talk about that. It’s not anything that I’m open about. I think if you’re doing the right thing, good things happen to you.” Before the concert, the hip-hop mogul commented on his upcoming album, Curtis, and the superstar guest appearances on the LP, such as Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Akon, Robin Thicke and Mary J. Blige. “I can go there now. I feel like I’ve proven myself at this point,” 50 said. “I just didn’t want people to be able to interpret me making music with other people as if I needed to. I just accomplished everything I needed to accomplish on m y own and now it’s time for me to creatively merge with some of these people in order to create special songs.” Curtis will be released on September 4.
