Before moving into the world of television executive producing, 50 Cent was a force to be reckoned with in the music world.
His debut album is still selling til this day. The infamous, “Get Rich Or Die Trying” had such gems as “Many Men” and “Wanksta” which allowed the New York rapper to head to the top of the charts. He would soon later continue his dominance with the inclusion of his group “G Unit”.
The popularity of the group led to 50 Cent creating an imprint that would eventually sign legendary hip hop acts such as Mobb Deep. The music of that time period still reaps benefits for Curtis Jackson as he took to social media to announce his “GRODT” album has now sold over 13 million copies.
The “Power” executive producer wrote on social media, “Everybody loves Diamonds over 13 million records sold not bad for a first album”.
