50 Cent And The Game Join Forces To Support Choir

Battling rap stars 50 CENT and THE GAME are ditching their feud to back New York inner-city initiative THE BOYS CHOIR OF HARLEM.

The hip-hop icons are hoping to reunite in a generous gesture that will save the choir from bankruptcy, despite The Game calling 50 Cent a "coward" and goading his former mentor to "kill" him on stage only last Friday (04MAR05).

50 Cent - real name CURTIS JACKSON - will present the choir with a $150,000 (GBP78,000) cheque from his G-UNITY FOUNDATION, while The Game - born JAYCEON TAYLOR - is donating $100,000 (GBP52,000).

A source tells newspaper the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, "It's a way for them to show that they can set aside differences for a good cause. The Boys Choir is pretty destitute - they had to lay off the bulk of their touring staff, and now people have to volunteer.

"50 Cent heard about their plight and decided, since he's starting his foundation, that he wants to be the first to step up from the New York community. He's going to challenge all the rap stars to match and surpass him."

Local Reverend AL SHARPTON, desperate to put a stop to warring rap stars in general, adds, "If it happens, I salute them. I'm happy to see that this feud has been dealt with in a proper way."
