50 Cent


Rapper and actor Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson was born on July 6, 1975 in Queens, NY. His dad abandoned the family and his mom, Sabrina Jackson, was drug dealer. After she was murdered in 1984, Fiddy went to live with his grandmother, Beulah. At age 12, he went down the same path as his mom and began dealing drugs. He dropped out of high school and went to jail a few times. In 2000, he survived being shot nine times. Jackson recorded a couple of unreleased albums before signing with Eminem’s label and making a splash on the scene with his 2003 debut “Get Rich or Die Tryin’.” He also starred in a movie of the same title. Jackson executive produces and stars in the Starz drama “Power” and launched his own record label, G-Unit Records, in 2003. He became the face of Vitamin Water in 2004 and made millions when the company was sold to Coca-Cola. He also has a partnership deal with EFFEN Vodka and became a licensed boxing promoter for The Money Team in 2012. Jackson has written the books “50 X 50: 50 Cent in His Own Words” and “Playground.” Despite being ranked #4 on Forbes’ list of wealthiest hip-hop artists in 2015, Jackson declared Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection and settled the following year. Fiddy has made it his mission to feed starving people in Africa and serves on the board of directors of his G-Unity Foundation, which provides grants to non-profits that help low-income and underserved communities. A Long Island house Jackson owned burned down in 2008. His ex, Shaniqua Tompkins, and their son, Marquise (born in 1996), lived there and escaped the blaze. He also has a son, Sire, with ex Daphne Joy. Jackson has been romantically linked to comedienne Chelsea Handler and actress Vivica A. Fox.
