Rapper Curtis Jackson a.k.a. 50 Cent has always prided himself on his entrepreneurial skills -- so where the rest of the Northeast saw a gigantic blizzard, 50 Cent saw a business opportunity! On Monday, the entertainment mogul decided to shovel out some of his neighbors' driveways. Sound generous? Don't speak too soon: the multi-millionaire charged $100 a family, more if they wanted to take photos of the Grammy winner cleaning out their driveways. Then he hired some local kids to help him. 50 Cent's goal: to make a grand in a day!
The rapper documented the whole saga on his Twitter account. Here are some highlights:
I want a hundred dollars if your stuck. Ill get you out. Lol
I got 4 people on one street to agree to my fee after they saw the first job I did. Now I'm looking for employees.
I'm paying 30 dollars and hour I only want 3 workers that 90 dollars and hour but I think we can do all 4 in a hour in a half. Lol.
This snow moving business is just to see if laws apply to every business. After the first job I got 4 more now I have 3 kid I hired.
One is a cute kid he has on a snow suit. So I'm sending him to ring the door bell to ask if we can shovel there snow. When you look at his eyes its hard to tell him no. lol then I come to tell them how much they have to pay us. Lol.
True to his word, 50 Cent posted a couple photos of himself shoveling snow bare-handed. (He later assured his tweeps that he'd gotten a hold of some gloves.) We don't know if he reached his target goal of $1,000, but it's fun to see the musician's quick thinking and entrepreneurial skills in action. Once a hustler, always a hustler -- even during a blizzard in the suburbs!
