In Da Pub

After their big push into the world of hip-hop stardom, rappers tend to get weirder and weirder as time goes on. They start out ghetto kings, and end up hawking their tacky merchandise on shopping channels a la P Diddy, completely disconnected from what the real world is all about. Take 50 Cent for example: when he first broke through he was the hottest thing since a freshly baked loaf, now he’s cooking up plans to open a chain of authentic pubs across the USA with Vinnie Jones, of all people.

‘I love the British pub,’ he claims in The Sun. ‘I have spent enough time in London and there is nobody who does a pub quite like England (it’s true *sniff* - Ed). Many people have tried to replicate the British pub theme over here in the States, but it just doesn't work, it's not genuine.

‘I would want a British business partner for it to be genuine and Vinnie would be ideal. He is about as British as it gets, the way he looks, the way he speaks, just everything. I am sure between us we could do it justice.

‘I know he is in Big Brother at the moment but when he comes out we'll talk. We could start with pubs in my home town of New York and his current home town of LA. But with us two in business it could go worldwide. We could have a Vinnie and 50's in every major city in the world.’ In Da Club seems a lifetime away now, doesn’t it?
