GM Cancels 50 Cent’s “G8” Truck

Allhiphop.com confirms that General Motors Corporation plans to cancel the Pontiac G8, a sponsored sport truck. The two-door, six-foot bed vehicle was scheduled to debut in North America in 2010. 50 Cent first introduced the G8 sport truck last March at the New York International Auto Show. In a statement to the Associated Press, Pontiac spokesman Jim Hopson stated the cancellation is part of a restructuring plan within GM due to the recession and the company’s long-term “vision for Pontiac.” Furthermore, Hopson clarified that the canceled truck does not change production plans for other G8 vehicles. The latest setback for 50 comes as MTV canceled the mogul’s high-profile reality show 50 Cent: The Money and the Power. 50 will be moving forward with the release his fourth studio album Before I Self-Destruct, which is now scheduled for February 3 release. The highly anticipated LP will be packaged with an original movie by the same title, which marks 50’s directorial debut.
