50 Cent Invests In Vitamin Water

50 Cent is diversifying

and taking some of the money he earned from his multiplatinum album releases

and investing in a beverage company.

Unlike his business

counterparts who have invested in energy drinks and liquor businesses, the Queen's

bred rapper bought a stake in Glaceau, the company that owns the Vitamin Water


50 said he drinks

the product on a regular basis, since he does not drink alcoholic beverages.

According to sources, 50 Cent will release his own line of drinks, a grape-flavored

beverage called Formula 50.

Formula 50 will

retail for $1.99 and while it hasn't been officially released, select stores

in New York are testing the product.

Presently, 50 Cent is recording his second album, which was originally slated

to be released this summer.

50 Cent scrapped the first recording of the album, fearing he hadn't outdone

his major label debut, Get Rich or Die Trying.
