50 Cent Contributes 500K To Houston Schools

By Stereo Williams

50 Cent made the big move to Houston, Texas earlier this month. And the NYC-born rapper/mogul has announced that he plans to make a big splash in his new place of residence.

On Monday (May 17), 50 Cent announced he is working with Houston mayor Sylvester Turner to launch an educational program meant to assist three local high schools who currently have low academic performances.

50, born Curtis Jackson, has committed $600,000 in a partnership with Houston ISD, Horizon United and the G-Unity Foundation that will fund the new G-Star program at Wheatley, Worthing, and Kashmere High Schools in Houston. 50’s program intends to help students at these three schools learn various business skills that focus on entrepreneurship while providing the teens with lessons at the College Masters level.

50 captioned on Instagram about the initiative, with a pic of himself and Houston officials.

“The kids that won’t listen to nobody, will listen to me, we come out of the same kinda confusion,” 50 wrote. “This program is just gonna show them how to win. #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi.”
