50 Cent's Distribution Deal For Street King Energy Shot Isn't With Pepsi
UPDATE: Fif didn't actually team up with Pepsi, but rather one of its independent bottlers.
50 Cent has announced a deal with Pepsi to distribute his Street King energy shot.
Breaking the news on Twitter, Fif plans to bring his energy shot to new markets. The business deal comes shortly after he launched the shot in September 2011, with the intention to supply a child in need with a meal for every shot purchased.
“I did a deal with Pepsi to distribute streetking its gonna be every were buy a bottle feed some one in need,” he tweeted.
50 Cent has dealt with soft drink companies before, having sold his Glaceau Vitamin Water stake to Coca-Cola in 2007. He made off with $400 million from the deal.
UPDATE: According to HipHopWired, 50 Cent's distribution deal isn't actually with Pepsi, but rather with Honickman Group, one of the company's independent bottlers that distributes beer and soft drinks. Street King is already available at GNC and 7-Eleven.
