Curtis James Jackson III (born July 6, 1975), known professionally as 50 Cent, is an American rapper, actor, businessman and investor. Born in the South Jamaica neighbourhood of the borough of Queens, Jackson began selling drugs at age twelve during the 1980s crack epidemic.

He later began pursuing a musical career and in 2000 he produced Power of the Dollar for Columbia Records, but days before the planned release he was shot nine times and the album was never released. In 2002, after Jackson released the compilation album Guess Who’s Back?, he was discovered by Eminem and signed by Shady Records, Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records.
Jackson was born in the borough of Queens, New York City and raised in its South Jamaica neighbourhood by his mother, Sabrina. A drug dealer, Sabrina raised Jackson until she died in a mysterious fire when Jackson was 8. After his mother’s death and his father’s departure Jackson was raised by his grandmother.
Jackson’s popularity began to grow after the successful, controversial underground single “How to Rob”, which he wrote in a half-hour car ride to a studio. The track comically describes how he would rob famous artists. Jackson explained the song’s rationale: “There’s a hundred artists on that label, you gotta separate yourself from that group and make yourself relevant”.
Rappers Jay-Z, Kurupt, Sticky Fingaz, Big Pun, DMX, Wyclef Jean and the Wu-Tang Clan responded to the track and Nas invited Jackson to join him on his Nastradamus tour. Although “How to Rob” was intended to be released with “Thug Love” (with Destiny’s Child), two days before he was scheduled to film the “Thug Love” music video Jackson was shot and hospitalised.
