Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Rapper 50 Cent has made it big in a very short space of time. Having been supported by Jam Master Jay, and produced by Dr Dre and Eminem, the rapper and poet has already experienced great success and critical acclaim. Whilst some 'talk the talk', 50 has 'walked the walk'. Growing up in Jamaica, Queens, he was born to a drug-dealing mother - she was killed in mysterious circumstances - and took over the family business at the age of 12. Living hard, he has been stabbed, shot 9 times (one bullet in his face) and has survived a number of assassination attempts. He is a potent and heady mixture of thug and poet.

Book Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Ships From Canada. New in new dust jacket. Glued binding. Paper over boards. With dust jacket. 223 p. Audience: General/trade. From Publishers Weekly: Starred Review. The rap superstar known as 50 Cent was born Curtis James Jackson III in 1976. His mother, a smalltime drug dealer, was murdered when he was eight, but that didn't stop him from pursuing her profession. 50 Cent is unflinchingly honest about his mother, his drug past and just about everything else in this raw, literate memoir chronicling his rise from Jamaica, Queens, to the top of the Billboard charts. In his neighborhood, recalls 50 Cent, the only people with money were the drug dealers: "'"They were my role models. "'" By 11, he'd made his first sale. Over the next decade, 50 Cent evolved from a hustler selling capsules of crack cocaine ("'"pieces"'") to a kingpin purchasing by the kilo ("'"weight"'"). With money came girls, clothes, cars and trouble. 50 Cent describes spraying bullets at rivals, outrunning police on his. Bookseller Inventory # 9461723192

Book Description: MTV Books, New York, New York, U.S.A., 2005. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. From Publishers Weekly: Starred Review. The rap superstar known as 50 Cent was born Curtis James Jackson III in 1976. His mother, a smalltime drug dealer, was murdered when he was eight, but that didn't stop him from pursuing her profession. 50 Cent is unflinchingly honest about his mother, his drug past and just about everything else in this raw, literate memoir chronicling his rise from Jamaica, Queens, to the top of the Billboard charts. In his neighborhood, recalls 50 Cent, the only people with money were the drug dealers: "They were my role models." By 11, he'd made his first sale. Over the next decade, 50 Cent evolved from a hustler selling capsules of crack cocaine ("pieces") to a kingpin purchasing by the kilo ("weight"). With money came girls, clothes, cars—and trouble. 50 Cent describes spraying bullets at rivals, outrunning police on his motorcycle and waking up to a drug raid on his house. He avoided jail by serving time in a boot camp–style incarceration center, which did nothing but turn him into a "stronger, meaner, and more focused criminal." His big break into music came through a chance meeting with Jam Master Jay (of Run-DMC). Yet even while trying to break into the business, 50 Cent couldn't leave his past behind, wearing bulletproof vests to meetings with record executives and slipping back into the drug trade when his career didn't take off immediately. Fans will discover the origins of 50 Cent's famous feud with Ja Rule; they'll also get more details about the notorious 2000 shooting that left him with nine bullet holes in his body. Opinionated, unrepentant and unabashedly self-promoting, 50 Cent's memoir celebrates the rapper's peculiar brand of the American Dream (and the title of his breakthrough album): Get Rich or Die Tryin'.
