Get Rich or Die Trying for Real

formula50_withmag.jpg50 Cent may never have to make a movie or record again (according to his recent singles "Amusement Park" and "Straight To The Bank" his latest album might suck anyway, though Yayo's laugh "ha ha ha ha ha" might be a hit).

For a little investment and marketing that the artist did for Glaceau's Vitamin Water, he might be paid $400 million just because Coca-Cola decided to purchase Glaceau for $4.1 billion.

How's that for foresight?

06.06.07 update: While listening to Miss Info discuss this on the radio this weekend, it dawned on me that if 50 indeed had any investment in Glaceau at all, it was probably only in the Forumula 50 brand. Beyond that, as Byron Crawford (surprise) said, it's probably only some sort of endorsement or licensing deal.
