50 Cent published a PSA on ThisIs50.com on Saturday, October 22nd calling on politicians and companies to help feed the world’s starving children. The PSA, which was also posted on the Street King Facebook page, is part of the rapper’s efforts to help alleviate world hunger by feeding 1billion children in 5 years.
Fifty’s PSA talks about the inescapable poverty that over 1 billion people live in which he says, “You have no chance of hustling your way out of it!” He blames the lack of care of those who live in more fortunate parts of the world as well as corporations who take large profits and political corruption for the lack of opportunity that many confront daily, before announcing, “Well I have woken up and Im not turning a blind eye anymore!”
The rapper launched Street King, an energy drink, to help combat world hunger after he returned from the World Cup in South Africa where he witnessed some of the world’s worst poverty. The drink’s maker, Pure Growth Partners, specializes in creating brands that donate a portion of their profits to the most efficient charities.
Street King promised to donate one meal through the United Nation’s World Food Program for each new Like they received and Fifty promised to double the company’s initiative if they received 1 million Likes by today, Monday, October 24th. While the company fell short at only 350,000 new Likes, they stepped up to the plate and covered the difference donating the 1 million meals anyway.
The drink is made from all natural flavors with no artificial colors and contains a natural source of caffeine which is extracted from coffee beans. The drink has as much caffeine as a cup of coffee but is considered healthier as it contains no sugar or carbohydrates, and the Grape flavor is fortified with vitamins and gingko biloba.

“The world is so f***** up
People don’t seem to care anymore
People seem to have distanced themselves from other people’s problems, they have been programmed not to care!
Politicians are corrupt…So many companies are corrupt and taking excessive profits in certain sectors…….and we keep allowing this s*** to happen
There are 1 billion plus people living in extreme poverty. You know what that is? You don’t know if your getting your next meal, no shelter, no medical. You have no chance of hustling your way out of it!
We have been programmed to not give a s*** about these people!
Well I have woken up and Im not turning a blind eye anymore!
Im not playing the game anymore. Our Company CEO’s and politicians want us to keep our heads down and not ask questions. Not demand the truth
