Born in Queens, N.Y., Jackson rocketed to stardom when his 2003 debut album, Get Rich or Die Tryin', made 50 Cent a major player on the rap/hip-hop charts. He was ranked as the No. 1 rap artist and most successful Hot 100 Artist of the 2000s by Billboard Magazine, which also named him the decade's sixth-best artist and fourth top male artist. The Grammy Award winner has sold more than 30 million albums and is preparing to release his sixth studio album.

He serves as executive producer and has a reoccurring role on the hit series "Power" on Starz and has a co-starring role in this summer's blockbuster film, "Southpaw" alongside Jake Gyllenhaal. He has leveraged his star power into brand extensions encompassing a broad spectrum of businesses including: footwear and apparel, fragrance, video games, publishing, health drinks, supplements and EFFEN® Vodka.
