Sunday Dec 19th, 2010 represents a historic moment in the Rock/Hip-Hop world with a ground-breaking new business model and artistic collaboration via the G-Unit offices in NYC, “Thisis50.com” and LA-based Rock artist Avery Watts. Watts will be the first Rock artist ever in Thisis50’s history to debut on the front page. Watts’ release “The Takeover EP” and recently released single “Enough” have struck a chord in the Urban Rock market. 50 Cent caught wind of Watts’ presence through G-Unit comedian Young Jack Thriller and together, he and his trend-setting team from Thisis50 have decided to debut Watts and feature his music/interview on Thisis50.com.
Thisis50.com is Hip-Hop Artist/business tycoon 50 Cent’s exclusive online social community that focuses on what’s relevant in pop culture and entertainment. The site reaches millions of fans worldwide. Boasting an international fan base and followers that range from celebrities, to athletes, A- list musicians to TV/film executives; 50 Cent has quickly developed a track record for being an industry trend-setter in Music & Entertainment. Known for his sharp business acumen, strategic alignments and overt entrepreneurial prowess 50 Cent, via Thisis50.com, will be embarking on a new format with Avery Watts as the muse and Raison d’Etre.
“I’m honored to work with 50’s team and look forward to seeing the interview hit the public and the Thisis50 community. I’ve personally followed Thisis50 for years. I use his site to keep myself up to date on what’s new in music, industry news, trending topics and new artists. It’s my equivalent for reading the NY Times or morning newspaper before I start my business day. I’m honored to be launched via something I have always respected as ‘what’s real’ in the industry”, says Watts.
Celebrity comedian and Thisis50 correspondent Young Jack Thriller sat down with Watts and his manager Michelle Coutois while in Beverly Hills promoting his up and coming G-Unit comedy tour.
“While out in Beverly Hills I had to come out meet Avery for myself. His music is high energy, it’s intense and ‘in your face’. He’s a really really dope artist and shrewd business man.” – Young Jack Thriller
Coutois adds, “I’m very proud to be working with Watts and everyone at Thisis50. I’m confident that this idea will sprout new alliances and new fan bases for all of us. Coupling two of the most profitable entertainment industry icons; 50 Cent and the power of Rock n Roll is genius. My thanks and appreciation goes out to my friend Young Jack Thriller, it’s nice to see stars breaking stars. As always, we are ready to Rock. ”
