50 Cent/News Corp Merger Reports False

Violator Management has confirmed with AllHipHop.com that reports of a proposed merger between rapper 50 Cent and Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation are false. According to reports, the rapper was supposedly negotiating a $300 million dollar deal that would have brought 50 Cent to MySpace Records. The deal also reportedly would have given News Corporation control over 50 Cent’s past and present tours, books and film projects, as well as his website, thisis50.com. The reports are “rumors,” 50 Cent’s manager Chris Lighty confirmed with AllHipHop.com.
