50 Cent moved to Texas in 2020 and Houston, Texas has welcomed one of its newest celebrity transplants with open arms and a giant mural. One of the fastest growing states in the nation, Texas has earned the reputation as one of the best states for telecommuting amongst other things; and 50 now calls the state home. The mogul posted a picture of the mural across his social media platforms.
“H Town is where it’s at," he wrote in the caption. "You think I’m playing Houston TYCOON weekend. All proceeds go G-Unity & HISD @gunitybusinesslab time to expand”.
50's G-Unity Foundation is a non profit foundation that provides grants to nonprofit organizations that focus on improving the quality of life for low income and underserved communities across the U.S. The G-Unity Business Lab is a pilot program in HISD (Houston Independent School District) that is supported by G-Unity Foundation. The lab is comprised of sixty students from Kashmere, Wheatley and Worthing High Schools, and they recently competed in an event called "Hustle Tank" which is set up much like televisions Shark Tank.
Throughout the school year, the students created business plans for their companies, collaborated with coaches and mentors and prepared pitches for the Hustle Tank judges, including 50 Cent.
"I Love NY, but I live in Houston now," 50 posted to IG last year. "I'll explain later."
It appears that 50 is making a financial impact upon the state. "Nothing says Houston Rodeo like the annual Rodeo Uncorked!" The Wine Spectator recently tweeted. "Champion Wine Auction and Dinner. This year's charity event brought in 2.7 million in part thanks to @50cent."
Texas Monthly speculated that 50's move could be motivated by the fact that there is no individual or corporate income tax in the state. Despite his motivation for the move, 50 is doing big things in the Lone Star State. Check out clips from Hustle Tank below.
