50 Cent recently commented on his motivation for hosting a benefit concert at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey, where the rapper will bus hundreds of children from his former neighborhood.
50s G-Unity Foundation will host the concert at the Northern Star Arena at the end of this month, as part of Six Flags Summer Concert Series.
“I am constantly searching for ways to give back to the community that helped create me and contributed to my success,” 50 Cent said “I can think of no better way to do this than to help improve the lives of the young people that reside there through programs created by my foundation.”
The G-Unity Foundation was created to improve the quality of life for children living in poverty.
In addition to the benefit concert, 50s organization donated $150,000 to restore Baisley Park in Jamaica, Queens, and another $60,000 to Queensboro Community College in support of ten incoming students.
Transportation to the concert will be provided by Vitaminwater and proceeds from the concert will go to establishing an academic program to benefit children in Northern New Jersey.
The G-Unity Foundation Benefit concert takes place at August 29 at 7:00 PM.
