I took quarter water sold it in bottles for 2 bucks
Coca-Cola came and bought it for billions, what the fuck?
Venture capital history lesson kids:
50 Cent formed an investment vehicle that took a 10% stake in Glaceau.
After The Coca-Cola Company bought Glaceau for $4.1 billion, 50’s investment vehicle received a $400 million paycheck and 50 himself retained over $100 million after taxes.
100 million? Now, that’s gettin' money.
In the hood a “quarter water” was a lil' juice 6 or 8 oz plastic bottle of flavored water. It was affordable for kids in the urban areas as it costs a mere 25 cents. I think it was manufactured by Sunny Dew. And it came in various flavors (colors).
