This violent and introspective memoir reveals not only 50 Cent's story but also the story of a generation of youth faced with hard choices and very few options. It is a tale of sacrifice, transformation, and redemption, but also one of hope, determination, and the power of self. Told in 50's unique voice, the narrative drips with the raw insight, street wisdom, and his struggle to survive at all costs -- and behold the riches of the American Dream.

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.

Book Description MTV Books, 2006. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Hailed as hip-hop's most anticipated newcomer in almost a decade, 50 Cent's major label debut, Get Rich or Die Tryin', was the fastest-selling debut of all time and has remained at the top of the bestseller lists since its initial release. 50 made chart history with his follow-up album, The Massacre (the top-selling album of 2005), when he became the first solo artist ever to have three singles in Billboard's top five in the same week. These achievements alone are newsworthy, but it's the history behind the hype that makes 50's life truly incredible. Before the media attention, before the million-dollar contract, 50 Cent was Curtis Jackson, a neglected teen fighting for survival on the streets of South Jamaica, Queens. For the first time, 50 Cent opens up about his childhood, the death of his mother, his introduction to drug dealing, the assassination attempt that almost ended his life, and the improbable beginnings of his music career. In his no-holds-barred autobiography, 50 Cent strips away the spotlight to reveal the complicated life behind his fearless personality and revolutionary music.
