Rapper 50 Cent excites fans in Massachusetts town
ABINGTON, Mass. (AP) — The residents of a small town south of Boston say they never thought they’d get the chance to meet rapper 50 Cent.
When they heard he’d be appearing at a local liquor store to promote a brand of vodka, residents of Abington and nearby towns lined up hours ahead. Some came from as far as the Boston area. A few camped out the night before.
The Enterprise of Brockton reports (http://bit.ly/1GrajyJ ) 50 Cent visited Billy’s Liquors Saturday to sign bottles of Effen Vodka, a brand he represents. People were able to purchase a bottle or case.
There were opportunities to get a picture with the rapper, but those who purchased a $150 case of the vodka were allowed to take a picture with him on their personal phones.
Police say the event drew about 1,500 people.
