Audio: 50 Cent Could've Picked A Better Track For His Feed Africa Project

[embed width="560"][/embed]


Remember 50 Cent's campaign to feed a billion kids in Africa? You know, the one where he launched Street King, an energy drink that pledges to provide a meal to an underprivileged child with every purchase (if you don't, catch the promo clip above). Well, the charity drink has its first official track and it's, um, completely out of line with the cause. We don't wanna full-on hate on 50's philanthropic (if sideways) campaign to fight hunger in Africa, as long as it delivers on its promise it's all good. But come on Fif, "Rat-tat-tat-tat, I never hesitate to put a n**ga on his back," really?? Probably not the best choice chorus to promote saving lives.

Is this another reason why Chinua Achebe doesn't like 50?
