50 Cent doing his bit for charity

Rapper 50 cent is investing his own cash in a drinks project to help feed starving kids in Africa
Great deals on musical instruments
50 Cent's rise from poverty and the mean streets of Queens, New York, to the heavy heights of fame and fortune is the stuff of fantasy, but the hit rapper hasn't forgot his roots and how hard life can be. It comes as no surprise that Curtis James [Jackson](http://www.gear4music.com/Electric_Guitars/Jackson_Electric.html) III – his real name – has increasingly been looking at investing his wealth into philanthropic projects, the latest being a new energy drink, profits of which are going to help starving African children. 50 Cent has teamed up with Pure Growth Partners to produce Street King, an energy drink that comes in a number of flavours like grape, [orange](http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar_Amps/Orange.html) and mango. "I grew up without money," he told the Huffington Post. "But I didn't grow up hungry. It's our responsibility to come together and do things to create a solution." Recently the rapper revealed how he had penned a semi-autobiographical novel called Playground, which deals with the subject of bullying, especially in schools. "This book would have been very helpful for me growing up and now that I have a teenage son, it is my goal that this will have a positive influence on all teenagers," he said.
