Entrepreneur, rapper, and actor 50 Cent (also known as Curtis Jackson) sits down with the Huffington Post to discuss his mission to fight hunger – not just as a ‘third world’ problem but a global issue – and the importance of conscious capitalism.
Citing his experiences whilst travelling as one of the key inspirations for his altruistic ventures, demonstrated through projects such as his Street King energy drink, Jackson cites the importance of not shunning wealth, but using it to help others; every bottle of Street King sold provides a meal for someone in a third world country through the United Nations Food project.
Expanding on the issue of global hunger and its effects, the 30-minute conversation shifts to other social and cultural issues including the effects of skewed lyrical content in Hip Hop, among other subjects.
Curtis also seems very excited to reveal that his upcoming album, Street King Immortal, will reportedly show a great deal of growth as well as a balance between a “bright” and a “dark” side. Check out the full interview below.
