Some people question if 50 Cent broke the law over the weekend, but it turns out he’s in the clear. 50 told his 3.8 Million Twitter followers to buy stock in H&H. The actual tweet was “NHI is the stock symbol … they are no joke get in now.”
50 holds a substantial number of shares in the company, and the stock surge earned him $5.2 Million. H&H imports “Sleek by 50″ headphones that 50 Cent endorses, and 50 happens to own 7.5 million shares and warrants for 22.5 million more, according to Gawker. However he did not break the law as he owned shares in the company, and continues to do so. If he had dumped the shares, then there would be potential legal issues.
