FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) — Rapper 50 Cent was out of “da club” and into a Fishers Kroger on Friday.

The grocery store says the award-winning musician, actor, and producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson planned to blend business and basketball this NBA All-Star Game weekend.

The performer and entrepreneur was to be in Fishers at the Kroger on Olio Road from 2-4 p.m. Staff says he was to introduce fans to his artisanal Branson Cognacs and sign bottles at the same time. Kroger representatives say Jackson was to only greet customers who make a qualifying product purchase; however, the release did not specify what that is.

Jackson was in town for the NBA All-Star Game weekend and will be part of the 2024 Ruffles NBA All-Star Celebrity Game coaching staff. He will join former Indianapolis Colts quarterback and Pro Football Hall of Fame member Peyton Manning on Team Shannon Sharpe’s coaching staff.

This year’s game will be at 7 p.m. Friday inside Lucas Oil Stadium.
