Yawn. Stupid argument. People still living in Harlem aren't worth millions of dollars like this Camron guy.

It probably went both ways, if 50 helped advertise Glaceau and boost sales, he would be paid in part ownership. I really don't know, just a guess.

Sounds like you're the one who's never been there. Maybe there are parts of Harlem that are unsafe at night when you're alone, but it really isn't a dangerous place. You think Bill Clinton's office is in the middle of a warzone where only "street cred" can keep you alive?

my dad lives on 27 street on madison ave in manhattan.. im probably in new york city 10 times a month.. the drive sucks from new hampshire, but its pretty fun.. i drive righy by the WWF headquarters in connecticuit alot..

anyways, the point is.. yeah, theres good places and bad places everywhere, its almost like young kids get brainwashed by idols/ friends/ parents/ if you are from a bad city.. like, if i grew up seeing my dad as a cocaine addict, i would probably end up experiementing with it, as well, just because i would be around it my entire life.. and that goes for more than cities, small towns as well.. this convo doesnt make much sense, because cam'ron grew up in wagner projects, or across the street from wagner, and having him on that interview was completely pointless.. alot of kids in inner cities see things at young ages that they carry over into there adult life.. cam'rons best friend was shot over stolen jewelry, and killed right in front of him.. so like, yes it carries over, yes it makes sense not to snitch, especially if it means your life is at stake.. i think people are taking it much to lightely, thinking it doesnt happen..

people are like ' grow up with that snop snitchin bull **** and get a life'.. and all that..

i bet alot of those people are either grown ups living in small country towns, or just people who dont have a clue about urban life

adam 50 made a commercial for vitamin water.

I don't know how he ever pulled off a 10% cut though. that's insanely high. seriously overpaid for that... unless he sells only vitamin water at his concerts or something.

I saw the commercial; it's funny. I bet he bought his stake of the company. I was being fecicious saying he got it for free, since this thread says he made $400 mil. Depending on how long he's owned his shares, he could have bought them pretty cheap. Shows he's a great investor though, to see something that even coke didn't see (until more recently) about the future of bottled drinks.

Edit: or he might be lucky. I want to see two or three brilliant moves before I call somebody "great"!

It's obvious that 50 and/or his advisors have great vision...

Also, the Glaceau guys did a very smart thing with all these new ads with sports stars/entertainers. I'd never heard about the product before the Urlacher hat incident but I've totally dropped Powerade since trying it. Tastes better and isn't packed with sodium like a sports drink...
