Pepsi Co: “50 Cent Was Lying About Distribution Deal”

Published: Wednesday 4th Jan 2012 by David

Days ago, fans of Rap favorite 50 Cent rejoiced in his  claim that he had inked a  deal Pepsi which would see the company distribute ‘Street King‘, his brand of  nutriontal energy shots which sees proceeds from all sales go towards feeding underprivileged children worldwide.

Unfortunately for him, today saw the company refute the Rapper’s claim, revealing that they are not directly involved with project despite his claims that they were.

 

Full story below…

This morning, our friends over at Hip Hop Wired received a statement from Pepsi themselves explaining that they have not inked a deal of any kind with the entertainer, but his deal is in fact with one of their independent distributors, The Honickan Group.

For someone who has for so long tried to present himself as one of Rap’s more  ‘business minded’  characters, we’re a little disappointed that 50 thought he could lie about working with Pepsi -who really have nothing to do with  ‘Street King’- and get away with it.

Yes, while we understand that naming ‘The Honickan Group’ as his new business partners would mean very little to his 5 million or so followers, tweeting that one of the world’s biggest companies is backing your venture, knowing full well that you’re lying, is foolish to say the very least.

Either way, kudos to Curtis for at least trying to make the world a better place.

Here’s to hoping Street King does just what he and his actual partners are hoping it will.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
    Shame!
    Karma is a dirty b****. When you do bad and don’t make amends everything you do will go wrong!
    Look at he did to the guy in GUNIT who was literally crying over the phone to him about his career only to discover that 50 was recording him and leaked the phone call online.
    Look at how he arranged Rick Ross’ baby mama to have s** with that fat dude on camera just to spite Rick.
    Look how he laughed at Fat Joe.

    Too bad.
    While drake is out there selling millions in two weeks, 50 is lying about business deals.

  5. JAKE (KING BEY, QUEEN ADELE & EMPRESS RIHANNA) January 4, 2012

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!

    “50, YOU GOT CAUGHT THE F*** OUT”!!!!!!!

    I SERIOUSLY CANNOT. LMFAO.

    AND WHAT MAKES THIS EVEN MORE AMUSING AND HYSTERICAL IS THE FACT THAT HE WAS SO ADAMANT ABOUT THE DISTRIBUTION DEAL ACTUALLY BEING REAL!!!

    KARMA IS ONE HELL OF AN ENEMY!!!

    IS IT JUST ME OR DOES ANYONE RECALL 50 CALLING ALMOST EVERY RAPPER IN THE GAME A FLOP, BETWEEN 05′ & 07′ AND THAT THEY WILL NEVER REACH HIS HEIGHTS OF SUCCESS – AND NOW HE’S THE ONE LYING ABOUT GETTING A “DRINKS” ADVERTISING DEAL!!!

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!

  6. GRODT January 4, 2012

    F*** Y’ALL
    50 is trying to do good and hes getting hated on.

    He’s a real rapper and a real businessman, drake aint nothing but an actor playing the role of a Rapper cos he knows nobody wouldever cast his goofy ass in a realmovie.
    And when we talk about sales, drake isnt doing anything 50 hasnt already done ten years ago. Dude is a fake.

  7. Those That Cannot Do, Stan January 4, 2012

    Shaking my head, lying will be the complete death of his career. That was terrible.

  8. Gucci Gucci January 4, 2012

    50 Cent needs to get his s*** together. I feel bad for him

  9. JAKE (KING BEY, QUEEN ADELE & EMPRESS RIHANNA) January 4, 2012

    @GRODT

    B**** NO!!!

    DRAKE IS JUST AS MUCH A TALENTED RAPPER THAN 50……. AND EVEN THOUGH I LIKE …CENT, HIS ATTITUDE DURING THE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS PUT ME OFF HIM AND NOW, SAD TO SAY, HE IS REAPING WHAT HE HAD SOWN TO SO MANY OTHER ARTISTS BACK IN THE DAY!!!

    COMMERCIAL SETBACKS!!!

    AND WHETHER OR NOT DRAKE IS “PLAYING” OR “NOT PLAYING” THE ROLE OF A RAPPER – HIS NEW ALBUM HAS BEEN ACCLAIMED BY MANY CRITICS, MANY OF WHICH CALLED IT THE BEST RAP ALBUM OF THE PAST YEAR FOLLOWING KANYE’S “MBDTF”

    WHERE IS 50 CENT???????

    END OF.

  10. Gucci Gucci January 4, 2012

  19. thug queen January 4, 2012

    You ain’t got to lie craig you ain’t to lie.

  20. Jasmine January 4, 2012

    I don’t think it is fair to compare 50 to Drake. They are not on the same level, money-wise. The majority of both Drake and Nicki Minaj’s money goes to Baby and Lil’ Wayne because of there 360 deal. 50 owns his own label. It would be better to compare 50 to Jay-z since the level of Jay-z’s business ventures is obviously what 50 wants.

  21. Justathought January 4, 2012

    50…#cmonson!

    Olivias revenge? Lol she better hurry up and try and get a deal, that’ll be her revenge but until then… Her hour glass is running out.

  22. beyonce is demonic January 4, 2012

    very sad

  23. Pucci January 4, 2012

    @White girl mob

    Please find another word to use in the place of MAN… You sound uneducated. Furthermore, Kreayshawn might’ve had a mild buzz with Gucci Gucci, but I highly doubt if she’ll make waves in the music industry. Her use of the “N” word doesn’t sit well black ppl & as a WHITE PERSON/girl, trying to break into the rap game you have to do a bit more than use profanity in your music.

    At least Emeniem is a respected MC (even though I will never understand why), he has a more credible musical repertoire than she does. But I guess to each its own, we all don’t have to like the same artist. I just thought I let you know how much of a fool you’re making yourself out to be. smh

  24. kimberly January 4, 2012

    Desperate measures. lmao. oh 50 your time has come, and the millions will soon be gone with your 78763536748393 expenses.
    HELP….. I WAS WAITING FOR THAT DAY….when stars and their fans throw unnecessary shade because of a few millions that’s what happens. be humble and pray that the industry and fans will embrace till your last days. There are other artist in line for that. ummmmmmmm
    POW

  25. D.Scott January 4, 2012

    Well that changes things. Still a good cause, though

  26. Pucci January 4, 2012

    @GRODT

    Get your head straight… 50 might be a great business man, a rap God he is not. We will reserve that title for the likes Jay-Z & Nas. 50 hasn’t pulled numbers like Drake (the fake rapper) since his first album. 50 has fell off since then. Furthermore, I have much more respect for Drake than I do 50 becasue at least he doesn’t have to start BEEFS, talk about gunplay & drugs in order to sell records. Can’t say the same 50 & from the looks of it ppl are tried of his antics. I do feel bad for him, but all this crying & whinning over where his musical career is now, is nobody’s fault but his own. He set these seeds in place 10 years ago with his negative energy. So how about you go somewhere else & support 50s music cause CRYING about it on a blog site & calling us all haters (which is laughable) isn’t helping him @ all.

  27. White girl mob January 4, 2012

  30. This dumb as site January 4, 2012

    You guys are so f****** dumb honikan group is an independent bottler with pepsi. Pepsi provides the leg work i.e. shipping and shelfspace. Learn something about he company before calling someone a liar.

  31. This dumb as site January 4, 2012

    Just educate yourselves, its a conglomerate

    Music Wise

    top dog

    Universal Music Group = Pepsi

    Interscope = Honikan Group

    Aftermath = Street King

    Who does the distributing ding ding ding

    Universal Music Group, the subsidiaries are independent but beholding too

  32. Pucci January 4, 2012

    @White girl mob

    Now I know that you’re an uneducated low life… Now I see I’m gonna have to stoop to your level to get my point across.

    Fist of B****, cause that’s what you are a female dog in PERPETUAL HEAT. Do you know what that word means? Perputual? Anyway, it doesnt matter if the word as the ‘a’ or ‘er’ attached to it, they basically mean the same thing & there are worlds of black ppl who agree with that statement. Although black ppl use the ‘a’ ending (myself including), majority of black America doesn’t agree with Kreayshawn or V-Nasty using it you MORON.

    Secondly, making threats over the internet wouldn’t scare a field mouse. I might have a different vocabulary than you (a higher level) but don’t let it fool you.

    THIRDLY,aint nobody & I repeat NOBODY scared a WHITE GIRL who thinks she’s BLACK, who gets her jollies off of supporting trash like Kreayshawn & threatening ppl OVER THE INTERNET that Kreayshawn & her GOONS FROM OAKLAND will off their tops. B****, get real, get an education & get a life worth living before you step to me. Don’t even know what city I live in IDIOT!

    And lastly, keep proving how STUPID you are. Will all just have fun laughing at you.

  33. Pucci January 4, 2012

    @White girl mob

    Oh & one mroe thing, you name Trina, Fat Joe, Akon & SOULJA BOY as the rappers who gave her the pass to say the word.

    Trina who I don’t even believe said that but okay, Fat Joe whose not even black, Akon who hasnt released music in a while, & Soulja Boy, the guy who CANT RAP & SHOULDNT BE RAPING. Hoodrat, please go somewhere. When you name rap legends like Jay-Z & Nas who give her the pass then maybe we can talk.

  34. queenofthenavy January 4, 2012

    @thisdumbassite it is YOU who is dumb. Signing a deal with one of the company’s INDEPENDENT distributors is NOT the same signing with the company itself.

    it would be if the company was owned by Pepsi but its not, they are an independent distributor, THAT is why Pepsi emailed hip hop wired to clarify 50s claims. it wasnt as though the blogs picked on him for no reason, Pepsi themselves said that the deal wasnt with them.

  35. Greg January 4, 2012

    Hot damn MESS

  36. DRACO January 7, 2012

    50 Cent is the Hip Hop version of Lindsey Lohan the way the media keeps forcing them both down our throats despite the obvious fact that nobody gives a s*** about them for the most part. Him lying about a deal with Pepsi just confirms how desperate he is for attention so nothing new. Sidenote to 50 and his dickriding fans: you’re done. Get over it. Period. No matter how many times XXL puts your mug on the cover or how many people you try to beef with( And lose terribly), nobody cares about you or your mediocre music-why do you think Interscope is kicking you to the curb? Because they know you’re star power has been demolished( Mostly by your hands of course). Go spend time with your son and the very few people who can stand your ass.
