Dec 28 (THAINDIAN NEWS) When the blizzard hit the East Coast this week, rapper 50 Cent warded off his boredom by starting his own little snow shoveling enterprise, and marketing the whole thing on Twitter.

Armed with only his shovel, a cell phone, and later some gloves, the rap star went to the streets, hiring kids to help him shovel the driveways of his neighbors, along with their vehicles.

Tweeting his progress as he went, 50 Cent posted the following,

- “I’m going out to shovel snow and see if I can make me a few extra dollars today. I’m charging more if they want to take pictures.”

- “I’m going out to shovel snow and see if I can make me a few extra dollars today. I’m charging more if they want to take pictures.”

- “I want a hundred dollars per house. I bet anybody ill make a grand moving snow today. Lol”

- “I got 4 people on one street to agree to my fee after they saw the first job I did. Now I’m looking for employees.”

- “I’m paying 30 dollars and hour I only want 3 workers that 90 dollars and hour but I think we can do all 4 in a hour in a half. Lol”

- “One is a cute kid he has on a snow suit. So I’m sending him to ring the door bell to ask if we can shovel there snow. Lol”
