50 Cent Finds A Way to Make A Few Bucks With A Shovel

Wow- I saw his offer on twitter and wondered if anyone would take him up on it.   A friend of mine actually tweeted that she would- but I don't know if he showed :)

Leave it to 50 cent to use a blizzard as a lesson in how to use a negative situation to add positive growth to your wallet.
In what is perhaps the ultimate lesson of hustling, rapper 50 cent took to the streets with an unofficial snow shoveling business. He charged houses $100 to shovel snow the day after the storm hit.
In a tweet sent Monday afternoon, he said "I want a hundred dollars per house. I bet anybody ill make a grand moving snow today." The rapper didn't have a problem booking clients, and after getting four houses to agree to pay him the fee he started hiring employees.
A few tweets later the rapper wrote, "I got 4 people on one street to agree to my fee after they saw the first job I did. Now I'm looking for employees."
The multi-millionaire rapper didn't post about how much money he made that day, but with his platinum selling albums and movie deals, it probably does not come close to what he usually makes on an average day.
Sopranos star James Gandolfini also lended a helping hand to neighbors in the West Village Monday night. Instead of charging people, he dished out the cash, to others who pitched in to help
