An American rapper, actor, and entrepreneur who goes by the stage name “50 Cent” is Curtis James Jackson III (born July 6, 1975). He has been referred to as a “master of the delicate art of lyrical brevity” because of his effect on the hip-hop business.
The 1980s crack epidemic had Jackson, who grew up in Queens’ South Jamaica area, peddling narcotics at the age of 12. He eventually turned to music and, in 2000, produced Columbia Records’ Power of the Dollar; however, the album was never published since he was shot only days before its scheduled release.
Impressed with his mixtape Guess Who’s Back?, Eminem signed 50 Cent to Shady Records, an imprint of Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records after he released it in 2002.
Fifty Cent rose to fame as the de facto head of the East Coast hip hop collective G-Unit thanks to the help of Eminem and the late Dr. Dre, who produced his debut big label album Get Rich or Die Tryin’.
Formed his own record label in 2003, recruiting members of the G-Unit, including Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, and Tony Yayo. The Massacre, 50 Cent’s second album, was also a financial and critical triumph when it was released in 2005.
Upon releasing his fifth album Animal Ambition (2014), he suffered significant stylistic shifts, and he is presently at work on his sixth studio album. Power (2014-2020), which he executive-produced and starred in, will see him producing spin-offs.
He has sold over 30 million records worldwide and won several honors including a Grammy and thirteen Billboard Music Awards. He has won six World Music Awards and three American Music Awards. Get Rich or Die Tryin’ (2005), Home of the Brave (2006), and Righteous Kill (2007) were all Jackson’s cinematic roles as an actor (2008).
According to Billboard, 50 Cent was recognized as the sixth greatest musician of the 2000s and the third-greatest rapper. This song and Get Rich or Die Trying were named 37th and 13th in Rolling Stone’s “100 Best Albums of the 2000” and “100 Best Songs of the 2000s” lists.

The halftime show at the Super Bowl was one to remember, with a star-studded roster of performers. Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg kicked things started at the beginning of the event. They then pointed down, and 50 Cent began to perform while hanging upside down on a rope.
“50 Cent looks like he was hit by inflation,” one Twitter user joked.
“50 Cent looking like a whole dollar bill,” another person said.
“Looks like 50 Cent has been spending a lot of time at the candy shop,” someone else wrote, referencing another of the 46-year-old’s hit songs.
The social media world appears to be dominated by 50 Cent’s body.
Some were caught aback by the rapper’s appearance at Super Bowl LVI because he has previously displayed his shredded physique.
Following his performance, fans went to social media to remark that he was ‘looking like a full dollar.’ It was 50 Cent’s debut halftime performance. Many trolls targeted the well-known musician because of the comparisons his followers were making to his prior 28-year-old self. Here are some of the comments made regarding Jennifer Lopez’s figure by fans on social media.
Two months ago, Curtis Jackson made headlines for defaming fellow platinum-selling singer Madonna. People quickly pointed out the irony of the rapper’s appearance at the halftime act after he was body-shamed on social media.
In one of the most marketed sporting events of the year, numerous rappers took part in the halftime show. Even if 50 Cent’s body no longer resembles that of his 28-year-old self, the hip-hop artist seems unfazed by the jokes.
