(if you missed it like I did, here’s the full hour audio…including commercials, lol, sorry)
Mr. Cee and 50 Cent’s Throwback at Noon Special
But I just want to point out an interesting part of Cee and 50’s conversation….
50 talks about how he recently donated 200k to Bette Midler’s New York Restoration Project . Which is an amazing non-profit that gathers private funding to build and revamp public park spaces. According to Fif, his donation went directly to reclaim and restore South Jamaica, Queens’ infamous Baisley Park, where he and others may have spent time hustling back in the day. The website for NYRP doesnt list Baisley as one of its projects, but it does list the G-Unity Foundation as a $50,000 to $99,000 donor. Then there are 2 anonymous donors listed in the $100k to $499,999 range. I’m not sure if 50’s claim of having “bought” Baisley on the Sincerely Yours mixtape is a stretch, but either way, its a nice move, if not an ironic one.
