Oprah Winfrey won't be able to ignore 50 Cent any longer. According to a 'Top Earning African American Stars' List released by Forbes Magazine, 50 Cent comes in right behind the popular talk show queen.
The list, which appears as a video report published on January 29, 2009, by Forbes.com lists 50 Cent as the second top earning African American star. The report based its rankings on how much the stars raked in from June 2007 to June 2008.
According to Forbes, 50 raked in $150 million over the aforementioned period via his clothing line, music, video games and the purchase of his stake in Glaceau Vitamin Water by Coca Cola in 2007.
Expect to see 50 on the list in the future. The rapper recently launched a film company and has plans to launch his own line of dietary supplements.
50 is currently gearing up to release his fourth solo album Before I Self Destruct in March. The album will feature appearances from Eminem, Dr. Dre and G-Unit rappers Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo
