It wasn’t too long ago when 50 Cent was the biggest hip hop artist in the world and gangsta rap was still gangsta. Realistically, everything has changed since then.
When it came to Curtis Jackson’s product, however, there was no faking in it. His shit was always just extra aggressive, quintessentially New York and paved the way for so many rappers after him.
From Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ (which later turned into a feature film) to The Massacre, Fiddy was truly untouchable for the most part of the 2000s.
Just when it looked like he reached the top of the music game, he did what not many would’ve expected and began focusing most of his energy to landing some savvy business investments. The seeds that he planted early on off have paid in a big way.
He’s one of the most successful rapper turned moguls in the game. Not only is he a platinum recording artist, but he’s an actor, an executive producer for one of the most successful series on television, a philanthropist and an investor of a slew of ventures including real estate, stocks, bonds, energy drinks and even mining.
If you’ve been wondering why Fif isn’t putting out consistent work like he used to, then take a closer look into how he switched up his energy to get this money. The man has been busy getting to this paper. The scary part is there’s no signs of him slowing down.
