50 Cent is turning out to be quite the Businessman!  He has made a fortune in several areas: Rap Music, Spokesperson for Vitamin Water (where he pocketed $400 million), upcoming Actor and now this:

Move over Warren Buffett, there’s a new stockpicker in town – and he has just made $10m (£6.4m) almost overnight. After rapper 50 Cent unveiled a new brand of headphones bearing his name last week, the former drug dealer, whose album Get Rich or Die Tryin’ went multi-platinum, used Twitter to tell his 3.8m followers to buy stock in the marketing company – a business he partly owns.

H & H Imports has “one of the 15 products this year. If you get in technically I work for you. BIG MONEY,” he tweeted. 50 Cent, aka Curtis Jackson, added that the “stock went from 5cent to 10 in one day. You can double your money right now. Just get what you can afford.” His follower s evidently took his advice: 9.24m shares were traded in two days and the value increased tenfold.

I’m not mad at him.  This just shows how much power that there is in Social Networking!  He made 10 million dollars in the course of a few days, just by encouraging his followers to buy his stock on Twitter.  Priceless.  However, it appears that there may be an investigation of 50’s tactics and the possibility of inside trading.  We will see, but for now….50 is kind of the Man!
