What began as music chart dominance for the rap superstar 50 Cent, has quickly transformed to success as a multi-tiered business mogul to be reckoned with. 50 exploded on to the music scene in 2003, and has been rewriting hip-hop history ever since.
He rose to prominence with his first major-label release Get Rich or Die Tryin’ (produced by Eminem and Dr Dre) which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200, selling 872,000 copies in its first four days. The lead single, In Da Club set a Billboard record as the most listened-to song in radio history, within a week. 50 Cent had similar commercial and critical success with his second album, The Massacre, smashing his own records with the album selling over one million copies in its first four days and staying at No.1 on the Billboard 200 for six weeks. He was also the first solo artist with three singles in the Billboard Top 5 in the same week with Candy Shop, Disco Inferno and How We Do.
50 Cent is one of hip-hop’s best-selling exports and one of the world’s greatest rappers, selling over 30 million albums worldwide. He has won a surfeit of awards including a Grammy Award, thirteen Billboard Music Awards, six World Music Awards, three American Music Awards and four BET Awards.
His fifth studio album, Animal Ambition, was released in 2014 and also in that same year he debuted two EPs with the recently reunited G-Unit.
