Taking it as a life lesson, 50 Cent started concentrating on his musical career, and his first claim to fame came in form of ‘Get Rich or die Tryin’. The album turned out to be a blockbuster and has been honoured as an 8 times platinum ever since. He credits Eminem to be the one person who trusted him when nobody else did and says that he has been a huge admirer of the rapper. Eminem once said that the troubles 50 Cent has faced as a kid shows in his lyrics, and the pain, horrors, troubles will resonate with the listeners on a deep level. And he was right as, to this date, 50 Cent has sold nearly 30 million copies of his records, and is recipient of many music awards. Apart from music, he has a thriving acting career and has rubbed shoulders alongside some of the biggest actors and directors in Hollywood. His business ventures have also been quite successful and 50 Cent is frequently listed among the richest rappers of our times.
