Ah, 50 Cent. You are so fly. So powerful. So influential. The best in the rap game, the best in the money game. So you say. But with your recent Twitter onslaught, you just proved it. I can’t wait til you drop a rhyme about all the money that you just made.
Yesterday 50 Cent unleashed a series of Tweets to his 3.8 million followers hyping a penny stock, HNHI, which is the stock symbol for a company called TVG, or Television Vision Goods. The company reportedly makes infomercials and is launching 15 new products, including Fiddy’s new “sleek by50” headphones. Here’s a sampling of the brilliance Fiddy was spewing (many of which have since been deleted due to legal concerns):
HNHI is the stock symbol for TVG sleek by50 is one of the 15 products this year. If you get in technically I work for you. BIG MONEY.
HNHI is the stock symbol for TVG there launching 15 different products. they are no joke get in now.
50 would later back off, tweeting:
I own HNHI stock thoughts on it are my opinion. Talk to financial advisor about it.
I’m so happy to see that 50 is concerned about his fans’ financial well-being. HNHI’s stock rose from 10 cents per share, to about 40 cents per share yesterday, netting the rapper a cool $8.7 million dollars. Best of all, Fiddy is set to earn a $12 million bonus should the stock reach, yes, 50 cents per share. I can’t begin to tell you how amusing I find all of this to be.
In other news, this is supposed to be primarily a sports blog, so here’s another gem from the Twittersphere courtesy of Lebron James following Cleveland’s 112-57 loss to the Lakers:
Crazy. Karma is a bitch. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything.
Who says Twitter has no value. It’s priceless for the entertainment value alone.
