50 Cent recently joined forces with his most unlikely collaborator yet: Bette Middler. Fif’s G-Unity Foundation and Middler’s New York’s Restoration Project teamed up to renovate a community garden in Jamaican Queens, NY yesterday (11/03). The garden was re-baptized the Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson Community Garden.
“He stepped up to the plate to fund this project,” Bette Midler told Eccorazi. “And when it ended up costing $100,00 more than we anticipated, he didn’t bat an eyelid. He wrote the check!”
Fif reportedly forked up $200, 000 to fund the park.
“It’s nice to be able to give back to this next generation of kids,” 50 Cent offered. “This is the first of many projects I’m going to do in this community.” -Bruce Moses
