50 Cent has sold over 20 million records worldwide. His record-breaking debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin' has sold over 12 million units worldwide, with the largest debut in SoundScan history. While his sophomore effort, The Massacre, sold over 1.14 million copies in its first four days of release, he has since become the first artist to have four songs in the top 10 of Billboard's Hot 100 since The Beatles in 1964.
His business empire includes: a record label (G-Unit Records, a division of Interscope Records), apparel/footwear ventures (G-Unit Clothing and footwear, joint ventures through the Ecko Clothing Company and Reebok, respectively), vitamin water (Formula 50, through Glaceau's Vitamin Water), watch line (G-Unit Watches, through Jacob & Co), and a video game (50 Cent: Bulletproof, through Vivendi Games). His future plans are to dominate the film and television worlds through two new G-Unit ventures in film and television...and his most prized project: the nonprofit organization The G-Unity Foundation, which aims to better the life of urban youth.

"The book is cool, hard and vivid, a minor classic of a genre you might call gangster rap." (The New York Times Book Review)
Addicted to Audible since 2009
I am not a big 50 cent fan but this book definitely helped me understand him much much better. I really liked this book and found his life to be very interesting.
At first I had a hard time channeling 50s energy into the story because of the narrator. But then I began to associate the two things. Great story. Great narration. But they should have had 50 cent do the actual narrating.
I feel like I've gotten to know 50 Cent the person instead of just the artist and when someone comes his way, they better come correct. I enjoyed getting to know a fellow 'Cancer'.....
It's a good listen I enjoyed it
Kris did a good only 50 cent himself could do a better job
It had some very fun parts in the book
