Meet the Author

50 Cent is a record-breaking rap recording artist, entrepreneur, music producer, and actor. His debut album, Get Rich or Die Tryin', sold more than 12 million units worldwide, is certified eight times platinum, and was the basis for the semi-autobiographical film of the same title, in which he starred. He is the first artist to have four songs in the top ten of Billboard’s Hot 100 since the Beatles in 1964, and in 2012 he released his fifth studio album. He published his memoir, the New York Times bestseller From Pieces to Weight, which was hailed as “cool, hard, and vivid, a minor classic of gangster rap noir” (The New York Times). Under the G-Unit brand, his business empire includes a record label, apparel and footwear ventures, vitamin water, and more. He also created the nonprofit organization The G-Unity Foundation, which aims to better the life of urban youth. Learn more at 50cent.com.

    U ALREADY KNOW!!!

    1st of all I may be a lil bias b/c im in LUV w/Mr.Jackson! But I really did enjoyed this book, it makes you look at him as a real genuine person and not just another celeb. I really like the fact that it feels as though 50 is giving you a piece of him in the book. So I advise that if you don't have it GET IT! I LOVE YOU 50!!!
