Begin your tour of 50 Cent’s Power Story.
With the release of his fourth major album, Before I Self Destruct, 50 Cent proves once again that his determination to put the street in the spotlight is matched by no other. To date, he has earned 13 Grammy nominations and sold over 25 million copies of his albums.
He has appeared in several Hollywood films alongside notable actors such as Robert De Niro, Samuel L. Jackson, Val Kilmer and Sharon Stone.
While writing his new album Before I Self Destruct, 50 Cent wrote a script for a film of the same name. It is a coming-of-age story about an inner city youth raised by a single mother. 50 stars in the movie and debuts as a director.
His autobiography Pieces of Weight is a New York Times best seller.
His latest book is The 50th Law, co-authored with Robert Greene, best-selling author of The 48 Laws of Power.
The 50th Law profiles 50’s life on the streets and in the boardroom, as well as others who have overcome adversity.
