    LOL!

    (LOS ANGELES)—Rapper 50 Cent was among the many big name rappers who were touched at the recent "Word Up Hip Hop Spirituality Conference" at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. He also emerged as the only one who came away with a new name: "99 Cents."
    Billed by promoters as an event to make rappers more "spiritual" in response to criticism from many celebrities and religious leaders, the event seems to have delivered, as 50 Cent re-christened himself "99 Cents" in response to the keynote message by Word-Faith evangelist Creflo Dollar, whose message "Bling, Bling Speak to That Thing Thing!" hit home with the young rapper.
    In Dollar's message, he told attendees that the words they speak have the ability to create their reality, for better or worse. Alluding to Jesus being called "the Word of God," and Paul's own failure to speak healing for himself in response to his thorn in the flesh, Dollar encouraged the large crowd of homeys, gangstas, and posse members to "speak forth a new reality."

    You're on the right track, it comes from The Door, a satirical Christian magazine.
