What is surprising is how well he did in the business world. In exchange for letting the company use his name alongside one of its Vitamin Water products, the rapper received a 10% stake in Glaceau. That proved to be a great investment in 2007, when Coca-Cola (KO) bought out the company.
50 Cent’s profit on the investment was $100 million, according to Forbes. Not a bad return for the man responsible for the song “Candy Shop.”
