Background




50 Cent, born Curtis James Jackson III, grew up in South Jamaica, Queens, New York. He was raised by his grandmother after his mother, a drug dealer, was killed when he was eight years old. He started selling drugs at the age of 12 and was arrested several times for various offenses. He also pursued a career in boxing and rap music, inspired by his idols LL Cool J and Run-D.M.C. He adopted the stage name 50 Cent, a reference to a notorious Brooklyn robber from the 1980s.


In 1999, 50 Cent signed a deal with Columbia Records and recorded his first album, Power of the Dollar. However, the album was never released due to 50 Cent being shot nine times outside his grandmother's house on May 24, 2000. He survived the shooting but was dropped by Columbia Records and blacklisted by the music industry. He spent the next two years recovering from his injuries and releasing a series of mixtapes that gained him a loyal fan base and respect from other rappers. He also formed his own group, G-Unit, with his childhood friends Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo.


In 2002, 50 Cent caught the attention of Eminem, who was impressed by his mixtape Guess Who's Back?. Eminem invited 50 Cent to Los Angeles to meet him and Dr. Dre, who signed him to their labels Shady Records and Aftermath Entertainment.
