FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA, August 19, 2013 - Hang With Inc., a subsidiary of MEDL Mobile, Inc. (OTCBB: MEDL - News), announced today that famed music artist, actor and businessman, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, has joined the "Hang w/" platform.
The Hang w/ mobile app connects people around the globe through live streaming video and simultaneous chat - allowing hundreds, thousands and eventually millions of users to "hang with" their favorite people in real time. The platform will be monetized via a fully integrated advertising model. The app has already been downloaded nearly 400,000 times and has generated more than 8,000,000 user sessions.
Jackson's impressive body of work has been recognized across the music industry, having received awards from the American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Grammy Awards, MTV Music Video Awards, World Music Awards and many others - for an impressive tally of 83 awards.
From music, Jackson expanded his growing empire to include several entrepreneurial endeavors. He worked with Glacéau to create a vitamin water drink called Formula 50; became a licensed boxing promoter for his new company SMS Promotions; has stepped successfully into film and television, as both a producer and as an actor; and is also the founder of SMS Audio, a brand of headphones and other consumer audio products, and SK Energy Shots, a brand of energy shots. Both brands follow a conscious capitalism model, contributing a portion of sales proceeds to combat hunger in the U.S. and Africa, respectively.
"Hang With has the power to connect people to content and brands in ways never before possible," said Jackson. "I am excited to use Hang With to connect with my fans and to watch the platform grow because of its unique and exciting way of connecting people."
"50 Cent is at the top of who's who in entertainment and social media," said Andrew Maltin, MEDL Mobile CEO. "He's a Grammy-winning music artist who has more than seven million followers on Twitter and more than 31 million likes on Facebook. We can't wait to see what happens when his fans can get the most authentic social media experience hanging with him live."
To date, the Hang w/ platform has attracted more than 70 celebrities and athletes including Timbaland, Kaskade, Paula Abdul, Jimmy Kimmell, Terrell Owens, Cheech and Chong, Jessica Sanchez and Jamie Kennedy. Hang w/ recently announced a $2,000,000 Series A Round Investment that is being used to fund the company's aggressive plans to scale the platform.
