RACINE — Rapper 50 Cent is coming to Racine on Thursday, April 28th to promote the vodka company he endorses — Effen Vodka.

50 Cent will appear at the Twins Food Mart on 16th Street near S. Memorial Drive from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m.

According to a Twins Food Mart manager, with a $20 purchase of Effen Vodka, customers will be able to have their bottle signed by 50 Cent and have their picture taken with him.

Store officials hope 500-plus people will attend the event. We’re told they have 1,500 bottles of Effen Vodka in stock for the event.

Officials said other rappers have come to the store in the past. Ludacris came in 2010 to promote Conjure, a cognac he endorses. And other rappers, like Juvenile, Yung Joc and Bonecrusher have also made appearances — but not to promote beverages.

50 Cent made an appearance in July of last year — at the Woodman’s store in Oak Creek.
