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.
