50 Cent is doing something really cool by merging his business acumen with his philanthropic endeavors. The ‘I’m On It’ rapper has teamed up with Pure Growth Partners to launch a chartible energy drink called Street King that will help aid in combating world hunger.

For every purchase of Street King a portion of the sales will go to providing a daily meal to an underprivileged child around the world. The partnership coincides with Fiddy’s mission statement of feeding a billion people in Africa over the next five years.

“50 Cent and I share a common vision: To address the world’s problems through smart and sustainable business models,” said Chris Clark, the founder and CEO of Pure Growth Partners. “With the rampant starvation in Africa and hunger afflicting children worldwide, we need socially responsible businesses that affect real change now more than ever.”

50 concurs stating, “I’m inspired by [Clarke’s] vision and innovative approaches to tackling serious issues. It’s our mission with Street King to really change children’s lives around the world.”

The Street King energy drink will be available in September in Orange Mango and Grape flavors retailing between $2.49 to $2.99. The product contains 100 percent natural flavors, no artificial colors and made with a natural source of caffeine. In addition, each shot has no calories, carbohydrates or sugar, and is fortified with gingko biloba and vitamins.

50 is also launching a full interactive online campaign with Street King in September. He’s encouraging his fans to register at Street King’s official website.

Now this is really cool idea and we hope more rappers will get involve in charitable efforts like this. Not only is Fiddy helping people get an extra boost with his energy drink, he’s also boosting efforts to end world hunger. It’s a win-win situation. We give props to 50 Cent.
