Profiles of 50 Cent have always noted the rapper’s sideline venture hawking bottles of Formula 50 grape-flavoured vitamin water. Last week, that sideline turned into a very lucrative business deal as Coca-Cola acquired Glaceau, the company which manufactures the water, for $4.1 billion. Fiddy has a 10 per cent stake in the company, which means a very good pay-day for him. Maybe this explains the rapper’s delay in getting new album Curtis into the shops. The extra cash should also hopefully mean he will tell his agent to stop accepting film scripts.
