50 CENT

*Rapper 50 Cent is reportedly in talks with the Rupert Murdoch-founded News Corp to strike a deal that would give the company a large stake in all aspects of the 50 Cent brand, according to Ballerstatus.com.

       The partnership is reportedly worth $300 million and would include 50's music, books and concerts, as well as his G-Unit label.

       Aimed for a 2009 start, the deal would help launch the company's MySpace Records, with 50 and his G-Unit roster eventually moving under the label's umbrella.      

       The deal also calls for News Corp to acquire his online community ThisIs50.com, to market and sell the rapper's touring and to house G-Unit book deals and music publishing for 50 and the artists on his label.      

       Sources say half the deal will be in stock, which would make 50 Cent one of the largest shareholders of News Corp. The deal is expected to be finalized next year, after the rapper fulfills his contract requirements with Interscope Records.
