US Rapper 50 Cent Partners With Feeding America To Combat Hunger

50 has found a way to turn profits from his SMS audio company into food for those less fortunate.

50 Cent's philanthropic endeavors continue to help those in need.

The Hip Hop mogul's partnership with Feeding America aims to end hunger nationwide.

CNN recently highlighted 50 Cent's efforts in a visual segment titled "From Hip Hop to hunger."

During a visit to a local food bank in New York City, Fif spoke with the Cable News Network about his charity work with Feeding America and how he plans to solve the hunger issue.

"Feeding America is the best charitable organization to be a part of if hunger is your cause," he says within the clip. "I had it pretty rough, but not to the point where there wasn't something to eat. But now, I'm seeing a lot of kids that have even tougher stories than what I experienced."

Feeding America is a nationwide collective of food banks that currently has more than 200 members. Annually, the organization feeds more than 46 million people that qualify as food insecure.

Fif has found a way to turn profits from his SMS audio company into food for those less fortunate. Now, every pair of SMS audio headphones purchased online provides 250 meals to those in need.

"When you look at hunger itself, it takes so much to solve it," 50 says. "The only place I see enough finances to do it is in business itself."

Proceeds from 50's Street King energy drink also go towards assisting the U.N. world food program.
