“Over the past 20 years, I’ve been focused on academic enrichment projects and making donations to already exciting organizations that can execute it,” 50 said in a statement, as reported by KHOU 11 via Complex.
“Following COVID, providing the opportunities and tools for people to make their path easier in entrepreneurship, it’s exciting to be a part of that. And a great way to start things in Houston. It’s three schools now, but it’s going be a lot more. Watch me.”
Sylvester Turner, Houston’s mayor, said the new G Unity Labs will support students learning at Worthing, Wheatley, and Kashmere high schools to be educated on running a business and creating a business plan.
“[50 Cent] is interested in investing in this city, creating jobs and supporting young people,” Turner said as quoted by Complex. “In a short amount of time, [he] has made his presence known in Houston.”
