Street King Strikes Deal With Pepsi
NEW YORK -- Street King is ready for the national stage. The energy shot landed a national distribution deal with Pepsi, according to a tweet from the product's founder 50 Cent.
"I did a deal with Pepsi to distribute streetking its gonna be every were [sic] buy a bottle feed some one in need," 50 Cent revealed on Twitter, as reported by AllHipHop.com.
This is not the rapper's first experience with a major soft drink company. In 2007, 50 Cent earned more than $100 million after Coca-Cola purchased a vitamin water company he had a stake in for more than $4 billion, according to the report.
Street King hit stores this past fall. According to the company's website, every bottle of Street King purchased provides a meal for a hungry child. The goal is to feed a billion children, with the count standing around 3.5 million today.
