50 Cent is charitable

October 14, 2005 | celebrity | editor | 0 Comments

Hip-hop stars 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson) and Young Buck (David Brown) announced yesterday two new grants that will be distributed from The G-Unity Foundation, a public foundation that provides grants to nonprofit organizations that focus on improving the quality of life for low-income communities.

The Nashville Alliance for Public Education will receive $25,000 for general use and the Teach For America foundation in Houston will receive $100,000 to support their Hurricane Katrina recovery efforts. The Houston Independent School District has accepted thousands of displaced students over the past month. Ann Best of Teach For America said:

“We are extremely grateful for the substantial gift from The G-Unity
Foundation, Inc. This gift affords us the opportunity to do what we are compelled to do, respond in crisis. Our displaced New Orleans corps members are thrilled to have the opportunity to teach students who have evacuated from New Orleans.”

The G-Unity Foundation says its aim is to assist students in their efforts to obtain a first-rate education. But the home page on Young Bucks website fetures five rotating flash openings. One has him aiming a pistol at me and firing three times. Some might argue that sends a mixed message. He shoots at me three times with a revolver, but I don’t believe it’s some sort of math problem. Unless by “first rate education” he meant about gun maintenance. Maybe he said “first rate aim” and it just got misquoted at some point.
