Curtis Jackson III, aka 50 Cent, grew up on the violent and drug infested streets of Jamaica, Queens. Headed down the wrong road, 50 Cent gave up the hustle and chased a new dream: to become a hip hop star. But his road to superstardom wouldn't be easy. With gritty street rhymes, 50 attacked the industry and his bad boy reputation grew as fast as his list of enemies. 50 Cent parlayed his street hustle instincts into an empire, forming the G Unit business enterprise and inking a lucrative deal with Vitamin Water that reportedly earned him over 100 million dollars. Older and wiser, he hasn't lost the edge he honed on the streets of New York as he continues his relentless quest for success.
