50 Cent is just the latest to get on board the ever evolving social media landscape. He already has a popular presence on Twitter with more than seven million followers, as well as 30 million likes on Facebook. In addition to winning top honors in the music industry such as American Music and Billboard Music Awards, he is a producer, actor and entrepreneur, the latter role consisting of creating a vitamin water drink, a brand of energy shots and a brand of headphones and consumer audio products.

"50 Cent is at the top of who's who in entertainment and social media," Andrew Maltin, CEO of MEDL Mobile, said in a statement. "We can't wait to see what happens when his fans can get the most authentic social media experience hanging with him live."

In a press release, the music artist said that he looks forward to becoming part of the platform and watch it emerge into a dominant social media service as it offers people the opportunity to connect with others "in ways never before possible."

MEDL Mobile recently acquired a $2 million Series A Round Investment that will assist the company in expanding the streaming service to attract more users and enhance its offerings.

Hang w/ is available as a free download at the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
