About

 

50 Cent began selling narcotics at the age of 12 in the Queens community of South Jamaica during the 1980s crack epidemic. He begin his career in music in 2000, producing Power of the Dollar for Columbia Records; unfortunately, he was shot days well before the album’s scheduled release, and the CD never was released, only to be found later by Eminem.

50 Cent rose to popularity in the East Coast hip-hop scene with the help of Eminem and Dr. Dre who produced his debut major-label record Get Rich or Die Tryin’.

He formed G-Unit Records in 2003, enrolling his G-Unit allies Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, and Tony Yayo. He also ventured in TV as executive-produced and acted in the tv series Power (2014-2020), and is set to create its spin-offs.
