Today, July 6, is the birthday of Queens-bred rapper, actor, producer and mogul Curtis Jackson, better known to the hip-hop world as 50 Cent. The rap superstar now turns 45.
We're gonna party like it's your birthday.
We'd like to wish a happy 45th birthday to 50 Cent, the man who had the world celebrating everybody's birthday back in 2003. When 50 first dropped Get Rich Or Die Trying during the height of the Shady/Aftermath empire, it was quickly hailed as an instant classic. From that moment onward, 50 became a dominant force in both the hip-hop and entertainment industry.
Born on this date in 1975, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is undoubtedly one of the most influential forces in the game today. From music to movies to successful business ventures, Fif has always stayed on top of his game ever since he made his unconventional entrance into the Hip Hop industry at the end of the last millennium.
What has always kept 50’s name in the people’s mouths is the fact that he always had someone else’s name in his! Not to be confused with the common studio gangster, 50 has not only survived, but remained triumphant and relevant after all of his beefs.
