front

50 Cent real name Curtis James Jackson III, was born July 6, 1975 in South Jamaica, Queens NY.  He is best known as a rapper but has been moving more and more into films recently. He first appeared on the scene in 2003 with the release of ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’ which has gone on to sell a total of 15 million copies worldwide. That smash was soon followed by ‘The Massacre’ in 2005 which went on the sell an impressive 11 million copies. 50 Cent is one of the rare artists who have made it from the streets to the highest successes of fame. He started out as a drug dealer when he was just 12 years old. He had a passion for rapping and decided to pursue the music business. In 2000 50 was shot nine times. After surviving that incident he went on to record an album titled  ‘Guess Who’s Back?’ in 2002. The record caught the attention of Eminem who signed him to Interscope Records.

Recently 50 Cent was having his tattoos removed with laser treatments. 50 said he underwent the painful laser treatments to remove most of his tattoos because he was tired of the hours he spent in the makeup chair covering them up for his movie roles.
