50 Cent is a talented rapper who was born in South Jamaica, Queens, in 1975. He became a drug dealer when he was just 12 years old, but after spending time in prison in 1994, he left that business in order to pursue music. In 2003, he hit the big time with the release of his album “Get Rich or Die Tryin’.” He has since released five more albums and has sold more than 21 million records. He is the father to a son, Marquise Jackson.
In addition to all the money that he has made through recording and touring, 50 Cent has generated a great deal of income from investments and endorsements. He has served as the spokesman for several prominent products, and the largest chunk of his income came from an ingenious deal with Vitamin Water, for which he negotiated a stake of the company.
