50 Cent Moved to Houston and Corralled a Win at the Rodeo’s International Wine Competition

Billboard

50 Cent recently relocated from New York to Houston, Texas and the hip-hop entrepreneur couldn’t have gotten a warmer, more fitting welcome. On Saturday (May 8), 50 (born Curtis Jackson), had the welcome mat rolled out via a big win at the 2021 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo when he scored Reserve Grand Champion Best of Show at the Rodeo’s International Wine Competition for his champagne, Le Chemin du Roi.

The rapper celebrated the win in the auction in a tweet, where he wrote, “Last Auction of the Night – 2021 @RODEOHOUSTON Charity Wine Auction – 3 of @lecheminduroi Raised $360k – Record – Thats what you call a Texas Sized Green Light Gang.” In a video of the sale, a cowboy walks around with the magnum of champagne and calls out the winning bid after 50, rocking a black cowboy hat, makes an early, losing six-figure bid.
