Award-winning rapper, entrepreneur, actor & producer, and rap legend “50 Cent” will take to the stage in the UK for a massive nationwide three-city arena tour in November 2015.
50 Cent is one of hip-hop’s best-selling global star and one of the world’s greatest rappers, selling over 30 million albums worldwide. 50 is currently working on his sixth studio album: Street King Immortal, scheduled for release in 2015. The first single from the album titled Get Low ft. Jeremih, 2 Chainz and T.I is now available on iTunes.
He rose to prominence with his first major-label release Get Rich or Die Tryin’ [produced by Eminem and Dr Dre] which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 872,000 copies in its first four days. The lead single, In da Club set a Billboard record as the most listened-to song in radio history, within a week. 50 Cent had similar commercial and critical success with his second album, The Massacre, smashing his own records with the album selling over one million copies in its first four days and staying at number one on the Billboard 200 for six weeks. He was also the first solo artist with three singles in the Billboard top five in the same week with Candy Shop, Disco Inferno and How We Do.
What began as music chart dominance for the rap music phenomenon quickly transformed to success in corporate America as a multi-tiered business mogul not to be reckoned with. 50 Cent has also carved out a successful and acclaimed career as an actor and producer.
In 2005, 50 Cent founded the production company, G-Unit Films and Television, producing a wide variety of content across various platforms. He serves as Executive Producer and has a reoccurring role on the hit series “Power” on STARZ which was renewed for a 3rd season after only one episode of season two. The season two premiere of “Power” on June 6, 2015 drew 1.43 million viewers, the most ever for a STARZ Original series season premiere episode and it tripled the original “Power” audience from the June 2014 series premiere.
