Rapper 50 Cent Helping Out Texas High Schools With New Program
Rapper 50 Cent is known for a lot of things outside of music including his work as a TV producer, mogul and businessman. He recently announced on social media that he's becoming a resident of Texas and moving to Houston and over the last few weeks, he's been spotted all across Texas doing various things from attending auctions to showing up in clubs.
While many thought that this is 50's latest "publicity stunt", the Mayor of Houston and other city officials are pushing hard to get 50 to relocate to the Lone Star State and so far he's shown his love for Texas and he's really putting his money where his mouth is in Houston by helping out several high schools with a new program.
According to KHOU, 50 and Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner announced that the rapper's charity organization, G Unity Foundation and Houston United Group, have partnered to create an advanced business program for students at three Houston ISD schools.
G Unity Labs, will provide resources and MBA level instruction to students at Worthing, Wheatley ad Kashmere high schools. During the labs, these high school scholars will learn the ins out and outs of running a business, including creating a business plan. G Unity Foundation donated $300,000 to the program, which HISD matched for a total of $600,000.
Nice work 50 and we hope you see why we love Texas and why you would love it too!
