Left Handed

I’m not sure if it matters much to you, but for those of you who care, 50 Cent is left handed. As an added bonus, Eminem is also left handed. So, for all of you out there that are left handed – you are obviously not alone! I actually heard left handed people are smarter – winks.


Family Business

This family business is definitely no family business that any of you should be in, no matter what! He started selling crack at the young age of twelve. I honestly believe this is sad, but look at where he is right now – see, there are happy endings.


Spring of 2000

During the spring of 2000, 50 Cent was shot in the face, legs and hand at close range by a man with a nine millimetre. He survived nine bullets. One of the bullets hit his lower gum and got lodged. That is why you notice a gaping wound where a couple of his teeth used to be.



50 Cent does not believe a three man security is big enough. Along with this, he wears a bullet-proof vest – nearly all the time. Other members of his G-Unit crew wears the vest as well. He also has a bulletproof SUV – they also say it’s bombproof.


Shady Record Labels

50 Cent has reported that he could of made millions more if he signed with other record labels. However, he signs with Shady, because he knew he would have his well deserved freedom of speech.

Famous Quotes

Eight Years Old

At the young age of eight, his mother, Sabrina, who was a drug dealer was murdered. I always thought 50 Cent had a sad story to tell.



50 Cent was arrested many times. One o those times, he was arrested in gym class for crack vials that he had hidden in his sneakers.


Marquise Jackson

Marquis Jackson is 50 Cents son. He was born on October 13 of 1997. His son is lucky to have a father like him – don’t you think? Perhaps he can teach him the right from the wrong from life experience.

There you have 8 facts on 50 Cent. I always thought he was a good rapper and he is obviously getting somewhere in life now. What do you think about him?
