  • April 27th: Rapper 50 Cent part of new campaign to prevent childhood obesity

    50 Cent has sold millions of records serving kids from the hood to the 'burbs a steady diet of gangsta rap.

    Now, he's part of a new campaign to make his young fans healthier.

    50, who lives in Farmington, Conn., is a spokes-rapper and judge for a nationwide cooking competition aimed at preventing childhood obesity by improving high school students' eating habits. It is sponsored by Glaceau, the company partly owned by the rapper and that sells his grape-flavored Vitamin Water drink, Formula 50.

    Student chefs in cities including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle will compete to create the most "nutrient-rich" cafeteria lunch recipe, Glaceau has announced. The winner will receive a $100,000 college scholarship.

    In an interview with The Associated Press earlier this week, 50 said he thinks "it's a lot more difficult for kids" to stick to a healthy diet.

    50, who has bared his washboard abs on album covers, said he wasn't always so physically fit.

    "I had all of the unhealthy habits," the 29-year-old rapper said. "Soda ... a lot of fast food, all those things."

    Today, he exercises regularly and - thanks to a personal chef - eats nutritious meals.

    "I have someone that I can actually have prepare the food for me, so it's a huge difference than just getting McDonald's or Burger King," he said.

    He said he tries to avoid sweets, sneaking soda when it's "available," but often substituting it, naturally, with Glaceau beverages. The savvy businessman, who has his own record label, G-Unit, and a sneaker line with Reebok, said his refrigerator is stocked with "a lot" of the drinks.

    "It's a better reflection of my lifestyle," he said. "I don't drink alcohol and I don't need an energy drink."

            ^^That was the first thing I thought of when reading the thread title.
            I am glad to see that he is doing positive things with his fame. I wish
            that I could afford a personal chef.:: I love the "View" and will
            make sure to see what is up on Friday. Sounds like a good message
            he is trying to get out to the kids. Offering that scholarship is also a
            great motivation aswell.

                  yea, but apparently those fat kids have been loving cake too much; it's time for a change...

                  it is ironic considering he was fat...but isn't he sending odd and mixed messages when he wants the kids to lose weight but then he raps about shooting and how he sold drugs?

                  50 is not a good role model (unless this is the start of a major change in everything he does), he should leave the kids alone like MJ should...

                        I dont see it as a bad thing that he was somewhat of fat himself. He knows what he is talking about.

                        50 Cent once said he would change himself and also the things he talks about in his music in a more positiv way, as soon as he has the feeling that people would except it. Maybe he is at that point now.

                            well surely it makes sense to have someone that was once fat to help kids lose weight lol...your not have some tank looking person or even a skinny person who has never been fat tell you how to do it
