From Queens, N.Y. Curtis James Jackson III, better known as 50 Cent, was discovered by Jam Master Jay of RUN DMC. He skyrocketed to hip hop stardom after being signed by famed rappers Eminem and Dr. Dre. His first two albums, “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” and “Massacre,” both achieved multi-platinum success and his hit single “In da Club” is still one of the most popular club anthems today. It holds the Billboard record for the most listened-to song in radio history.
In 2003, he founded G-Unit Records, which signed several successful rappers including Young Buck, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo. Aside from his music, 50 Cent 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. 50 Cent’s latest album, "Before I Self Destruct," includes the hit single “Baby By Me.”
