New York Rapper 50 CENT is drinking Vitamin Water Straight to the Bank. Glaceau, the makers of the popular brand was acquired by the Coca-Cola Company (May 25) for $4.1 billion dollars. The multi-millionaire who is planning for the September 4th release of his curtis album owns a 10% share of the Glaceau company which he invested in 2004, earning him $400 million dollars. The company markets and distributes a grape flavored energy drink inspired by 50 named Formula 50. “This is an outstanding opportunity for both of our companies to build an expanded active lifestyle business, first in the United States and then around the world,” says Muhtar Kent, President of the Coca Cola Company.

Formula 50 is the best Vitamin Water flavor too, I always hated buying it because I figured he got a residual cut off of it.

I like it. the commercial is awesome. vitamin water is the greatest invention of the last decade. 50 "gets money" or whatever. great for both sides.

I wonder how much he paid for the 10% though... Certainly not around $400 million, but.. like what $40 million? Anyone know?

I'm not sure if he's a smart business man, or got lucky... Wonder if it was his idea, or if he has someone who advises him on investment oppurtunities.

$400 million was his 10% cut of the $4.1 billion that Coca Cola paid for Vitamin Water.

Right, but how much did he pay for the 10% originally?
