Four months after Soulja Boy got his iPhone app–which let
users remix his songs–50 Cent gets his, dubbed “50’s Sound Lab.”
Only 50 Cent’s app is part of a marketing campaign for
Vitamin Water. Like Soulja Boy’s remixer, the older rapper’s free app uses
Moderati’s music remixing platform Romplr, but users can only mix one song: “Baby By Me,” 50 Cent’s first single
from his latest album, Before I Self Destruct. You can then post your creation on Facebook, send it to a friend, or enter the
contest for a shot at winning a trip to NYC to meet the rapper and New York Times bestselling author (for his book, The 50th Law.) 50 Cent will
supposedly even pick out the best remix himself.
Even though the actual app and contest have little to do with Vitamin Water (the “flavor creator” Facebook app was way cooler), at least we got a kick out of the literal interpretation of the song title in the promotional video.
