It’s a story like this that makes us love Twitter.
Rapper/actor 50 Cent has gotten into the holiday spirit, offering to shovel people’s driveways after a blizzard hit the East coast… for $100 bucks a pop. Is Mr. Cent trying to give Kanye West a run for his money for the most entertaining person on Twitter? We think so and we approve.
]]>Our story begins early on Dec. 27, when 50 tweeted, “I’m going out to shovel snow and see if I can make me a few extra dollars today. I’m charging more if they want to take pictures.” His goal was easy: Make $1,000 dollars by charging the low price of $100 dollars per house. “I want a hundred dollars if your stuck. Ill get you out. Lol.” Poor little Jimmy in your neighborhood never stood a chance. After shoveling four houses, 50 decided it was time to expand his business. “Now I’m looking for employees,” he tweeted. “I’m paying 30 dollars an hour I only want 3 workers that 90 dollars.” Very good, 50! One follower asked if he could be paid to salt the driveways. 50 Cent said he’d pay him five dollars. Employees quickly lined up for the entrepreneur and soon 50 hired 3 kids. “One is a cute kid, he has on a snow suit.” He showed off his business prowess with smart ideas. “I’m sending him to ring the door bell to ask if we can shovel there snow.” Genius! We won’t comment on the grammar or spelling. Oops, too late! This makes us love 50 Cent 1,000x more. Watch out, Kanye. He’s coming for your number one spot.
