50 Cent

Real Name:
Curtis James Jackson III
Profile:
Curtis James Jackson III (born July 6, 1975), better known by his stage name 50 Cent, is an American rapper. He rose to fame with the release of his albums Get Rich or Die Tryin' (2003) and The Massacre (2005). Both albums achieved multi-platinum success, selling over eleven million copies combined.

Born in South Jamaica, Queens, 50 Cent began drug dealing at the age of twelve during the 1980s crack epidemic. After leaving drug dealing to pursue a rap career, he was shot nine times in 2000. After releasing his album Guess Who's Back? in 2002, 50 Cent was discovered by rapper Eminem and signed to Interscope Records. With the help of Eminem and Dr. Dre — who produced his first major commercial successes — he became one of the world's highest selling rappers. In 2003, he founded the record label G-Unit Records, which signed several successful rappers such as Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, and Tony Yayo.

50 Cent has engaged in feuds with other rappers including Ja Rule, The Game (2), Fat Joe and most recently Rick Ross. He has also pursued an acting career, appearing in the semi-autobiographical film Get Rich or Die Tryin' in 2005, the Iraq War film Home of the Brave in 2006, and Righteous Kill in 2008.

I like 50 1 Not everybody is a NAS or KRS-ONE or Rakim-Still Curtis lyrics are on point and with a strong beat he can spit fire. Is is his unique, rather limited vocal delivery that works for him, Check the G-UNIT mixtaßes ot his recent THE KANAAN mixtape, that really hit haard. Besides that he is clever and cares about his employoes making sure everybody can eat. Like Vube hit real talent is in the movies business-Kust watch that jail macimum security/GULAG with both american heroes (movies) Arnold Schwartenegger + Sylvester Sly Stallone escaping from that hell hole. Curtis maybe a side characterhere but he was the star next to Robert Dinero and on countless other block busters. He even got his own movie company GORILLA Enrtertinment.
I like that he is straight, doesn't derink, doesn't smoke and concentrates on the business side of things. Working with DRE showed him the way to make millions of dollars. Not bad for a stick up id and notorious street gangster !

50 cent is my favourite rapper, he is talented and releases good music. Get rich or die tryin' is his best album and is one of the best rap albums out there in my opinion. His beats are some of the best rap beats in the world and his lyrics are good

I actually agree with mrdominic. when "50" was first in tracks (that I've ever heard), he was actually good (in a Notorious BIG song/remix). his flow was actually on target and he had a message...a rather bland message, but still a message. and now, people just hand him $50,000 bills and say, "that's a good song, 50" without listening to them. they obviously should like a lot of the music (produced by famed Dr. Dre), but if it wasn't for Dre and/or Eminem's fame, 50 would probably still be selling rocks. You can only spit rhymes outta that bullet-riddled head of yours for so long (with has become more or less a mumbling cavern of bragging-rites and profanity for shock value). Not a fan anymore.

I may well be lambasted for this comment, but there is something that has never quite "sat right" about this artist for me. It's not the content of his lyrics - all sorts of different musical styles have embraced the gangster lifestyle - it's more the way he makes words rhyme simply by pronouncing them the same, rather than by choosing words that actually rhyme.
