50 Cent Fights Famine, Hunger In Somalia, Kenya

(AllHipHop News) Queens, New York rapper 50 Cent continues his mission to help feed millions of men, women and children who are starving in Africa.

The rapper landed in Dolo, Somalia yesterday (February 8), where tens of thousands of people are being affected by a famine in the country.

50 Cent is traveling in Somalia and Kenya with the World Food Programme to document the suffering of the people in the country, who have also been impacted by war in the region.

The rapper launched a new energy drink “Street King,” as a vehicle to provide 1 billion meals for people around the world who have been impacted by hunger, war and famine.

According to stats released by the World Food Programme, over 100,000 people have died as a result of the famine in the region.

50 Cent is an official ambassador to the World Food Programme and has been working with the organization since October of 2011.

For every purchase of his Street King energy drink, one meal is donated to the World Food Programme to feed a hungry child.

  • What is the state of public debate on GM foods in southern Africa?
    The humanitarian crisis in southern Africa has drawn attention to the use of GM food as food aid in emergency situations. A number of governments in the region raised concerns relating to environmental and food safety fears. Although workable solutions have been found for distribution of milled grain in some countries, others have restricted the use of GM food aid and obtained commodities which do not contain GMOs.

    • GMO’s? That’s over heads!

    phuck 50 coon ass… this is just another p.r. move… it aint frum da heart

  • you may hate on 50 cent all you want but the guy by judging him on his past but he has a gentle heart. `this guys know the meaning of hunger and being poor. his mama died whilst he was still young and that led him to drug dealing and he is touched by the same ppl who are going through the same phase as he did years ago. I respect the fact that he is helping in Africa coz this country is every black man’s origination. We love you 50 and if only those in USA can start to recognise the perspective in which you are rapping from. he doesnt rap about being broke no more coz he is real and in his rap he currently updates us on his trueself. You fake criticising `USA niggars better stop hating and appreciate the niggar for who he really is. Game who claims to be NWA, all he does is shout DRE and does he reveal the fact that he was a stripper. Big Fase who is Game”s brother disputes the fact that he was ever in a comma. Game is a good lyricist but a LIAR. its true that HIP HOP is dead coz we got Frauds like Game and Rick Ross. Eminem made a movie and revealed how his life was and that gained him success and same as 50. when are we getting a movie from MMG by on Rick Ross’s life so we cud see all  he could lie about. Thx to 50 we know this FAT BITCH was keeping niggars and now claims to have been selling DOPE. yes he thinks he is BIG MEECH coz they were in the same place for different reasons. Big Meech is serving time whilst Ross was an employee ensureing that he doesnt escape from the cell. Now that’s REAL TALK NIGGARS. WHAT?
