50 Cent Facts:

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson, was born in poor circumstances in New York on July 6, 1975. His childhood was marked by the death of his mother, who was killed in the drug war in Queens. Because of this early contact with the drug milieu, he began dealing drugs at the age of 12 and was already in prison with 18 years.
Shortly afterwards, 50 cents was discovered by the rap group Run DMC and was signed under their label. His debut single "How To Rob (An Industry Nigga)" became a hit in the hip-hop underground. In the song, 50 Cent dissed countless well-known rappers in a humorous way, including Busta Rhymes, TimbalandLil' Kim and Mariah Carey. An answer from the victims came shortly after and 50 Cent was suddenly present everywhere in the media.
50 Cent's steep rise was stopped in 2000 when he was hit by nine bullets in his face, arms and legs. After his stay in hospital, 50 Cent's rap career was history. His record label canceled planned video shoots and took the album "Power Of A Dollar" off the market, so that the rapper had to start dealing drugs again. During this time, the beef with rap colleague Ja Rule also boiled up and reached its peak when 50 Cents mentor Jam Master Jay was murdered.
Hope grew when 50 Cent could sign to Dr. Dre’s label Aftermath. With the successful album "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'", 50 Cent was on top again and received several platinum awards. 50 Cent founded the rap formation G Unit-Records, which he quickly expanded into a multimillion dollar company. With his clothing line G Unit-Clothing the rapper finally rose from a drug dealer to a successful businessman. He documented his life in the blockbuster "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'".
After the release of "Before I Self Destruct", whose work did not go according to 50 Cent's ideas, the slow separation of G Unit records began. With several smaller film appearances, 50 Cent remained in the public, despite missing album releases in the following years.
In 2014, another turbulence occurred in 50 Cent’s career. After several arguments, the G Unit formation separated. As a solo artist, however, the rapper took off again and released his album "Animal Ambition".
With his most successful album "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'" 50 Cent visited Europe in September 2018 and performed his greatest hits.
