Yo Quiero 50 Cent!

79 Cent? Hilarious. The other demands are kind of weird, but whatever. Apparently 50 Cent is going to take legal action; apparently he feels they make him seem like he's begging for money.

Fast Food Chain Issues 50 Cent A Charity Challenge

June 19th, 2008

Fast food chain Taco Bell has issued 50 Cent with a challenge, offering to donate $10,000 to the charity of the rapper’s choice if he changes his name for one day.

As part of the deal, 50 has to stop past the Taco Bell of his choosing and rap his order at the drive-thru window, however, he must use his newly adopted name, 79 Cent, 89 Cent or 99 Cent.

The chain has also said they will feed all of the guests in that particular restaurant for free, as well as making the donation.

A letter to the rapper from Taco Bell President and CEO Greg Creed, which was obtained by OK! magazine, says, “We know that you adopted the name 50 Cent years ago as a metaphor for change. We at Taco Bell are also huge advocates for change… We encourage you to ‘Think Outside the Bun’ and hope you accept our offer.”

At the time of writing, 50 Cent hadn’t responded to the offer.
