    50 Cent

    Curtis Jackson A.K.A 50 Cent was born in 1976. His mom was a drug dealer who was killed when he was a little boy. He went live with his grandparents. He then began the family business. He entered this business so he can get money to buy the things he needed. Next Curtis was accidentally caught with drugs in school random search as well as arrested for possession shortly thereafter. After getting out, he went back to the business. Over the next decade, 50 Cent evolved from a hustler selling capsules of crack cocaine pieces to by the kilo weight. Outrunning police on his motorcycle and waking up to a drug raid on his house. He avoided jail by going to a camp. When he left the camp he found a new way of life which is to be a rapper. 50 Cent was later signed to Columbia records and recorded tracks targeting drug lords from his past and aggravated them enough for them to target him in a shooting. This lead into a shooting which 50 Cent got shot nine times from close distance. 50 cent recovered from this and became one of the most famous rappers there is today. So if you like this book I think you should see Get Rich or Die Tryin of the other way around.
