Curtis James Jackson III, better known to public with his stage name 50 cent, is an American rapper, actor, entrepreneur and investor based out of New York.
Jackson's early life in New York City borough of Queens led him to deal drugs at an age of twelve. He course-corrected quickly and began pursuing a rap-career. After several low-profile collaborations and solo efforts, Jackson's fortune shined when Eminem discovered him and signed him up with Interscope Records, Aftermath Entertainment and Shady Records.
