Last night when I was looking for another interesting topic to post on my blog I some how got redirected to tmz.com and this story on rapper turned music mogul (what EXACTLY is a "music mogul"? What is a mogul period!??! Anyway I came across this story written by Economy got you down? Trying to make ends meet? Working two jobs and wondering if you should splurge on a Big Mac value meal? 50 Cent does not feel your pain.
The music mogul and self confessed one time hustler 50 Cent, real name Curtis James Jackson III lived up to the first part of his "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" reputation this week as he tweeted a series of photos that highlighted his stacking skills, only instead of playing with, say, Lincoln Logs or the party edition of Jenga, he piled up $100 bills.
But what might have been an amusing, if obnoxious, display of moolah becomes borderline offensive when you realize the amount of his stash: $500,000 in Benjamins, which he apparently had hanging around the house, collecting dust instead of interest.
I guess I'm glad that he hasn't spent any of his money on gold teeth! ( do see one gold tooth up front tho) But SHEESH! Whether he went to the bank and got the money for the photo shoot, or, actually has a half a million laying around his "crib", it just seems excessive. Or is that my superiorly honed jealousy talking?
