Can’t get enough of 50 Cent’s wild antics and catchy ABC/1,2,3 rap songs? 50 Cent is again capitalizing on “50 Cent” the brand and is cashing in with Uber50, a new app to give your Twitter a G-Unit face lift. Uber50 features custom icons, a dark color scheme and artwork that you can use on your Blackberry. And if you REALLY want to add another milli to 50’s pockets, you can purchase the Deluxe G’D Up Edition, in which you can get endless gun action and a potential shout out on Twitter from 50 Cent himself.
As an LA publicist, I know all too well how important establishing a client’s brand is. I gotta say, even though I’m not the biggest 50 Cent fan, the man knows how to pimp himself out. Him and P. Diddy. Past genius and lucrative moves include his minority stake in VitaminWater, his own video games and a five year deal with Reebok to brand his own shoe named after his self-made crew “G-Unit Sneakers.” He may not know how to rap respectfully about women, but he does know MONEY. And I quote “I’m laughing straight to the bank with this. Ha ha ha.” -Mr. Jackson himself.
