When former drug dealer-turned-rapper Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson named his debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin', one can't imagine he was talking about playing salesman on QVC.
He was on QVC this weekend, sniffing perfume and selling his STREET brand wireless headphones. The headphone business is a lucrative one dominated by Dr. Dre's Beats By Dre brand and everyone from Jay-Z to the enterprising businessman is looking for a piece.
It appeared to be working when the rapper was at the home shopping channel's West Chester campus.
First, the rapper talked about what he likes in a woman, including how she smells and what she wears.
Somewhere in the middle there was a mention of headphones.
The show's entire inventory, as well as some limited edition models, sold out in a matter of minutes.
"I just made 177,000 dollars in 9min on QVC.can some one hate on me so I can know this is real life.#SMSaudio," Can someone hate on me so I can know this is real life." tweeted 50 (@50Cent).
