Before he blew up to be an international superstar, 50 Cent was trying to get his foot in the door of the music industry, and it's been revealed that he once interned for a jingle company.
The company's owner, Jesse Itzler, who is one of the owners of the Atlanta Hawks, spoke about his time getting to know 50. He stated, "This is the craziest story," Itzler began his remarks on Fif in a TikTok video. "50 Cent was my intern. I have this kid who's a boxer who wants to be a rapper, he wants to get some business experience. So we made a deal that he would intern for me for whatever experience I could give him. In exchange, he helped me write these jingles that I was doing at the time."
Iztler went on to speak about the relationship coming full-circle years later, "Fast forward ten years later, we go on our own way. 50 becomes this amazing international star, and I have a private jet company called Marquis Jet. By fluke, he is a guest on one of our airplanes. So I had the pilot write a note saying '50, you're never gonna believe this. This is Jesse from the jingle company, and you're on one of my airplanes.' The next day, he wrote into all of his contracts that he would only fly with Marquis Jet. That is a lesson on loyalty, and you never know who the next 50 Cent is going to be."
50 Cent reposted Jesse's video on Instagram, writing, "This is 100 percent true Jessie is my guy. I think he owns the Atlanta Hawks now [he does] I gotta catch up with him."
