50 Cent vs Taco Bell

3rd\SE Quadrant: The Approval Matrix

From 96WEFM

50 Cent is not too happy about an offer from Taco Bell, who wants him to adopt a new name.

To promote its new “Why Pay More” value menu, Taco Bell sent 50 Cent an offer letter, asking him to change his name to 79 Cent, 89 Cent or 99 Cent for one day this summer.

Taco Bell President Greg Creed, who made the proposal to 50 Cent's agent, also wrote that his company would make a ten thousand dollars donation to a charity of the rapper’s choice, if he accepts the request. As part of the deal, 50 Cent would also have to make an appearance at any Taco Bell location around the country he chooses and rap his order in the drive thru with his new name.

However, 50 Cent didn’t find any humor in the offer.

He said when his legal team is finished, Taco Bell is going to have a new corporate slogan: 'We messed with the bull and got the horns.'
