50 Cent asked to change his name to 79 Cent
The 'In Da Club' rapper was challenged by Taco Bell to consider calling
himself 79, 89 or 99 Cent to promote the restaurant's new value menu.
Taco Bell have promised to donate $10,000 to a charity of the rapper's
choice if he also agrees to stop at one of their outlets and rap his order
at the drive-thru.
The eatery will also treat all the customers at the star's chosen restaurant
to free meals.
Taco Bell President and CEO Greg Creed said in a letter to the singer: "We
know that you adopted the name 50 Cent years ago as a metaphor for change.
We at Taco Bell are also huge advocates for change. We encourage you to
'Think Outside the Bun' and hope you accept our offer."
