50 Cent Visits the Gulf Coast
Fans all across the Gulf Coast waited in line for hours for a chance to meet a Grammy Award winning rapper.
50 Cent is traveling city to city, signing bottles of liquor for a vodka label he represents. Today, he stopped by Vintage Wine and Liquor in D’Iberville to promote Effen Vodka.
Hundreds of people took turns hugging and taking pictures with the rap mogul while holding up the different flavors of the new brand.
J.T. Nicholson said, “I feel that by 50 coming, it is real positive for the community and it shows that our demographic is growing. Ever since Katrina, I mean, we lost a lot of things, but now I’m thinking all of the celebrities and people are coming back and that’s a good, positive thing.”
Matthew Pavlov said, “He seemed like a nice dude and it moved along pretty smoothly. I guess I’ll try the vodka now.”
Effen Vodka is a premium liquor offered as plain vodka, black cherry, raspberry and cucumber flavors. 50 Cent has successfully used his star power to boost Effen Vodka sales all across the country.
