Curtis Jackson's story is an incredible journey. He was born to a single mother, Sabrina, on the hard streets of Jamaica, Queens. His mom died in a fire when he was only 8 years old, and from there he moved in with his grandparents. Jackson took the name of a local gangster and would become known professionally as 50 Cent.
He began boxing at the age of 11 and joined a neighbor's boxing club. When he wasn't in the gym, he was either at school or selling crack on the streets. He cites both boxing and selling crack on the streets as influences on his competitive nature.
During the mid-1990s, Fifty was introduced to the rap game by a friend, and he would rap over instrumentals in a basement. In 1996, he was introduced to Jam Master Jay, who taught him how to count bars, write hooks, write songs, and ultimately create hip-hop.
After several mixtapes, Curtis began to gain success with his underground smash, “How To Rob,” from “Guess Who's Back.” The track would comically take shots at many industry heavyweights, such as Nas, DMX, Big Pun, Jay Z, and many others, who all responded, and the move pushed him into the limelight, but unfortunately, it was put on hold when he was shot nine times and hospitalized.
As time passed, Eminem picked up the mixtape, and impressed by the work, he introduced the rapper to his mentor, Dr. Dre. 50 signed a deal for $1 million and in 2003 released his major-label debut, “Get Rich or Die Trying.” There was a lot of buzz behind the album, which went on to sell over 12 million copies worldwide. Because of all the controversy surrounding him at the time and all the media attention, that album became an iconic masterpiece, and now, 20 years later, it is being celebrated on tour by the man.
