50 Cent (and HNHI) Tweet Their Way to $8.7 mil

50 Cent Tweets

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.

    I should start following rappers on twitter to get my stock advice.

    LeBron just proved again that he still just does not get it, and karma is a bitch he lost and sprained an ankle.

    • Maybe you should. Did you make 8.7 mil yesterday? I agree about Lebron he needs to shut up, although 112-57 is pitifull.

      • j-bone

        Oh it is very pitifull, but, I hate this term, but either “embrace being a villian” if you are going to continue to act like an a-hole, which means stop crying about racism and how you don’t understand the venom, or, here is a novel idea, stop acting like an a-hole.

    50 is a business man.. when it snowed in CT last time he went to his neighbors house and offered to shovel their driveways for like a 100 bucks, then charged extra for a picture.. he tweeted some of the pictures, pretty funny..

    Lebron is an idiot, he is now saying that tweet wasnt for teh cavs at all and that it was something that was told to him by a friend.. if your gonna be an ass, be an ass.. accept that role, but dont be a dick and then pretend like you werent. i could root for the bad guy, the guy that doesnt give a care about what others think and does what he wants, i can respect that.. but lebron is just an idiot.

    im not positive but im fairly certain that what 50 cent did was illegal. this is what insider trading is and why people like bernie madoff go to prison, albeit they go to a white collar facility which would be nothing compared to what 50 cent has endured in his lifetime.

    thats not insider trading arab..at least i dont think so, i could be wrong and have no background in business at all, but everything he tweeted was public knowledge.. he didnt tell a select group of people to buy the stock because of a merger or to sell it because it was about to go bankrupt. He just explained he had a product and what the stock symbol was… again i have no idea really but it seems perfectly okay to me

  5. A. Rab Money

    well thats the wrong term for it then, but i still think its illegal to pump up a stock with info to make people buy it when you have controlling interest in it, so you benefit. Again im not certain but im pretty sure what he was doing is illegal. The info he was putting out there isnt really common knowledge, unless maybe you research the stock, but also if it was legit then why did he later post that he owns it, and its his own opinion and to talk to financial advisor about it? just seems fishy, but 50 cent is hood and breaking the law for some cash was never a moral issue for him.

    • A. Rab Money

      and as our Mr. G it explained many tweets were deleted due to legal concern. sounds to me like his legal advisor told him he should not be doing whatever it was he kept tweeting about.

      • What he did is not “insider trading” but it certainly does raise legal concerns. He knows that now, as does his lawyer, which is why he repealed the Tweets. The SEC might be investigating him is what most news outlets are reporting. Whether or not a suit comes against him, we’ll have to wait and see.

      • Kevin Youkillis

        lawyers dont know anything about anything

      • j-bone

        They do know the beastiality laws for all surrounding states

      • Kevin Youkillis

        thats funny cause i do know them, at least in NJ.. and its pretty much allowed
