An eager and excited 50 Cent was on a mission at Daytona for two reasons – to launch his SMS audio and headphone line and look for somebody to kiss to celebrate the occasion. However, 50 Cent’s foiled attempt at planting a kiss on Fox reporter Erin Andrews did not deter him from looking for someone else; he turned to Swan Racing driver Cole Whitt during a news conference for the NASCAR Daytona 500 Sprint Cup Series.
"I'm going to kiss Cole," said 50 Cent.
"Only if I win," Whitt replied.

The multi-platinum recording artist reached another milestone recently as he officially parted ways with Interscope Records, which served as his home label for a decade. Interscope can be credited for launching 50 Cent’s music career and catapulting him to being one of the most sought after hip-hop artists of this generation.
50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, is also leaving Shady/Aftermath, the Eminem-Dr. Dre collaboration that discovered and signed him as their first artist. 50 Cent expressed his gratitude to the two mentors that helped make his debut record “Get Rich or Die Tryin’ “a worldwide success that sold over 13 million copies.
Along with his G-Unit Records, the rapper has signed a worldwide distribution agreement with independent label Caroline of the Capitol Music Group. The deal applies to his latest album entitled Animal Ambition, which is due to be released on June 3.

Logos of 50 Cent’s SMS Audio line will be showcased on Swan Racing’s cars for the Daytona 500, which starts on Sunday. The two drivers for Swan Racing are Parker Kligerman and Cole Whitt, who will also have their uniforms stamped with the SMS logos. Special Swan edition SMS Audio headphones will feature the two drivers in the ad campaign.
Last year at the Daytona 500, while being interviewed by Erin Andrews, 50 Cent tried to kiss her on the lips, but the Fox reporter quickly turned her head away, causing the rapper’s lips to land on her cheek. Watch the mishap below.
