50 Cent took a trip to famine-stricken Somalia on Wednesday as part of a World Food Program humanitarian mission. 50 spent time visiting camps for internally displaced people who have suffered through two decades of anarchic war in the East African nation.
50 has been on a crusade with his Street King energy drink, vowing to feed over 1 billion people in the war-torn region.
He had previously promised to donate meals based on purchases and Facebook "likes" of the energy drink.
He added that if his Street King Facebook page receives one million "likes" by Sunday, he would donate an additional one million meals.
Upon his arrival 50 said:
"I am feeling what they are feeling. They need more support to have a better future and I will try to do something for them."
50 visited with the mothers of some of the children saying:
"It is my first visit here and I am very sorry to see victims like this, particularly women and children suffering various problems."
50 have been receiving praise and criticism on his Twitter during his visit. Most of the comments were split; some are praising 50 for his efforts, while others are criticizing the Queens rapper for promoting his energy drink.
We are behind 50, what he is doing is truly commendable.
