50 Cent Biography
Renowned for his rags-to-riches rise to fame just as much as his string of hip-hop anthems, 50 Cent is one of the most talked-about rappers of the 21st Century. Born Curtis James Jackson III in the Queens neighbourhood of South Jamaica in 1975, he was raised by his grandmother from the age of eight following his mother’s death and as a youngster took up boxing, competing in the Junior Olympics in the mid-80s. After being sent to correctional boot camp following several brushes with the law, he adopted Brooklyn robber Kelvin Martin’s 50 Cent moniker and mentored by Run-DMC’s Jam Master Jay, began honing his craft as an MC. “How To Rob,” an underground single which saw him explain how he would steal from various famous artists, attracted the attention of Nas, who invited him to appear on his Nastradamus tour. But shortly before Columbia was due to release 2000 debut album, Power Of The Dollar, 50 Cent was shot nine times from close range outside his grandmother’s home. Taking five months to fully recover, he was then dropped by the label and spent the next two years releasing various mix-tapes, one of which, Guess Who’s Back, was discovered by Eminem and Dr. Dre, who then signed him to Shady/Aftermath. 50 Cent tickets then became hugely in demand following the success of 2003’s Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, a Billboard No.1 album which also spawned two US Hot 100 chart-toppers, “In Da Club” & “21 Questions,” and the release of his collective, G-Unit’s Beg For Mercy. In 2005, he made chart history by becoming the first solo artist to score three Top 5 singles in the same week (“Candy Shop,” “Disco Inferno,” “How We Do”), sold 1.14m copies of parent album, The Massacre, in its first week and made his big-screen debut with the semi-autobiographical Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. After losing a chart battle to Kanye West’s Graduation with 2007’s Curtis, he returned in 2009 with the release of Before I Self Destruct and 50 Cent tickets for The Invitation Tour, whilst also topping the charts and winning his first Grammy Award with Eminem collaboration “Crack A Bottle.” After guesting on hits by Jeremih (“Down On Me”), Mann (“Buzzin’”) and Nicole Scherzinger (“Right There”), 50 Cent tickets went on sale for several dates ahead of the release of 2013’s Street King Immortal.
