The South Jamaica, Queens 26 year old native, 50 cent, is grinding hard to be at the top in his field. His freestyles on mixtapes are more like songs because he adds a hook and an original beat to his music. This has separated him from the average rapper. 50 lays it down so well because he's not a newcomer. Instead he's an established artists that’s confident enough to spit flames and make hot music. 50 is so hot, that DJ’s have taken it upon themselves to release two Best of 50 Cent mix CD’s, before he had even signed to a major label. There is no such thing as not being on point for Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. He's without a question, at the top of his game, being an artist of Multiple Talent.

50 hit the scene like an earthquake with “How To Rob An Industry Nigga” and he’s been on a rampage ever since dealing with bootleggers, label backstabbing and other platinum selling artists trying to get at him physically. In 1999 his album Power of the Dollar, was heavily bootlegged and Trackmasters/Columbia never released it. Supposedly Trackmasters weren’t comfortable with him being caught up in the streets and getting shot three days before filming the video for “Thug Love”, with Destiny’s Child his first single. That of course led to the fall out with Columbia and negotiating his release from their grasps. He still showed love and rhymed over a Trackmasters produced remix of “I’m Gonna Be Alright” on J-Lo’s latest album. The beat making squad also worked on 50’s new upcomming LP. 50 recently signed with hip-hop management juggernaut Violator, and has Teamworks Music producing with Sha Money XL holding him down. He’s currently in a bidding war with labels like J, Universal and Jive to release his album Get Rich or Die Trying thru his own imprint, Rotten Apple. 50 has full access and advantage of the streets through mixtapes because that’s his forum because he controls it. He’s been stabbed and shot since being in the public’s eyes and has never snitched on anybody but instead remained in his gangsta state of mind. He has loosened up a bit on the violent mentality and has started coming out with concepts that can interest the world. To put it blunt, 50 Cent can’t be stopped!

The South Jamaica, Queens 26 year old native, 50 cent, is grinding hard to be at the top in his field. 50 Cent (born Curtis Jackson) first made waves on the hip-hop scene in 1999 when he released the song "How To Rob" that took, painful, though hilarious, verbal shots at all the big names in rap. The song appeared on his unreleased debut album, Power of a Dollar, which he recorded for Columbia Records. In April 2000, before 50 Cent's rap career began to flourish, he was shot nine times while in front of his grandmother's house in Queens, New York, where he was raised. During his recovery, 50 Cent severed ties with Columbia Records, and began promoting himself via appearing on mixtapes. Just before the summer of 2001, 50 Cent released independently, Guess Who's Back?, with his crew G-Unit, further fueling his buzz. Eminem and Dr. Dre proclaimed their support of 50 Cent after he issued another independent record, a bootleg entitled 50 Cent Is The Future.

The momentum for Get Rich Or Die Tryin' accelerated during the summer of 2002, when 50's song "Wanksta," a dis to fake gangsta rappers, was released as a single from 8 Mile, the soundtrack from Eminem film. 50 also kept alive a beef with rapper Ja Rule. Get Rich Or Die Tryin' includes the Dr. Dre produced, first single, "In The Club."

Launch
The anticipation for 50 Cent's album, Get Rich Or Die Tryin', can be compared to that of debuts from Snoop Dogg (Doggystyle), Notorious B.I.G. (Ready To Die), Eminem's (The Slim Shady LP), and Tupac's post-incarceration, first Death Row Records release All Eyez On Me.

The excitement surrounding Get Rich Or Die Tryin' was largely due to the announcement, in 2002, that 50 Cent (born Curtis Jackson) had tapped a $1 million recording deal with Eminem's Shady Records, and Dr. Dre's Aftermath Records. The kings of hip-hop controversy were undoubtedly impressed with 50 Cents own fearless ways.
