50 Cent is Going ‘Straight to the Bank’
50 Cent (born Curtis Jackson) is now worth a crapload more than his name implies. Coca-Cola just purchased Glaceau Vitamin Water for $4.1 billion, and since 50 owns 10% of Glaceau, our man just made a cool $400 million.
"This is an outstanding opportunity for both of our companies to build an expanded active lifestyle business, first in the United States and then around the world," says Muhtar Kent, president and COO of The Coca-Cola Company.
Here's the rumored Vitamin Water commercial featuring 50 Cent conducting a orchestral version of 'In Da Club.' Mmm...That delicious grape flavored Formula 50 tastes even sweeter now, right Curtis?
