Rapper 50 Cent has been challenged to change his name for a day for charity.
Fast food chain Taco Bell has offered to donate $10,000 to the charity of his choice if he changes his name to coincide with a new advertising campaign.
“We know that you adopted the name 50 Cent years ago as a metaphor for change,” said Taco Bell President and CEO Greg Creed. “We at Taco Bell are also huge advocates of change… We encourage you to ‘Think Outside the Bun’ and hope you accept our offer.”
The challenge stipulates that the rapper must stop by one of the chain’s restaurants and rap his order at the drive-thru window – using any of these new titles: 79 Cent, 89 Cent or 99 Cent.
50 Cent is yet to respond.
