50 Cent is planning to expand his liquor business and working on a new album.
The hip hop mogul has his footprints dotted across the entertainment business from music to movies and TV and even his own brand of vodka. Now 50 Cent is looking to expand his empire into the Champagne business. Perhaps it will be called Effen champagne. The rap titan is currently promoting his new movie “Den Of Thieves” starring himself, Gerard Butler, and O’Shea Jackson Jr.
50 Cent sat down for an interview with The New York Times where he revealed his plans to launch his new beverage and laying down some new tracks for his sixth album. “I also go over my projects,” he said, “I’m launching a Champagne next year because it’s my favorite drink. And I go over my scripts. I’m there for a few hours, usually alone, and since it’s Sunday, it’s quiet, and I can get a lot of work done.”
The G-Unit rapper says he spend his Sundays recording his new album and sometimes he would spend hours in the studio just vibing new songs with his producers. “On most Sundays, I go into the studio to record my music and meet my producers there,” he said. “There are no windows so it’s very easy to lose track of time. I could be there six hours and not even feel it. Right now I’m in the middle of recording my sixth album, but it’s as thrilling as my first.”
Last year summer, rumors surfaced that 50 Cent sold his stake in Effen vodka for $60 million, although he never confirmed the deal. In 2007 he also sold his shares in Vitamin Water for a reported $200 million. The hip hop mogul currently has one of the most successful shows on TV, Power. He also announced last year that he is currently developing three more shows for STARZ after reaching a new deal with the network.
