Well, it seems like 50 Cent has been spending more time in Phoenix grocery stores than in clubs these days.
Curtis James Jackson III, aka Fiddy, is back in the Valley to sign bottles of his Effen Vodka. He'll be at the Fry's on 1311 East Bell Road in Phoenix from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 23. This marks his second appearance in the Valley in recent months after visiting back in March to sign bottles at another Fry's.
When you purchase one bottle of Effen Vodka for $19.99, you get 50 Cent's autograph, and a professional photographer will snap a photo of you together. If you buy a whole case of the stuff for $240, you get to take your own photos with the rapper.

Fry's and 50 Cent seem to be a winning combo. He helped pull in about $10,000 last time he made an appearance at another local Fry's this spring. Jackson invested in the Holland-based vodka brand in 2015 amid reports of bankruptcy.
The North Phoenix Fry's is the chain's newest location. The store is slated to open on Friday, July 15. For more information, visit the event's Facebook page.
Correction: The original headline for this article incorrectly stated 50 Cent was coming this weekend. He is scheduled to appear the following weekend.
