Holy shiz! This is absolutely INSANE.
50 Cent reportedly pulled in a whopping $8.7 million yesterday, and all because he chatted up a penny stock company in which he's invested called H&H Imports - on Twitter!
Fiddy got involved with the venture, owned by Kevin Harrington in Clearwater, FL, in October, when he received 30 million shares in a private placement, which included a series of warrants that granted him the opportunity to cash in as the stock rose.
And although there's been growing concern with the venture due to financial problems, that didn't stop the rapper from ca$hing in on his pull as a celeb!
"You can double your money right now. Just get what you can afford."
"They are no joke get in now."
And through those, he helped pop the shares by 290 percent!
H&H closed at 39 cents, which boosted the rapper's share by $8.7 million!
Yeesh! We guess it pays to be 50 Cent!
