50 Cent’s Biography
Born on July 6, 1975, Curtis James Jackson III is an American rapper, actor, and businessman best known by his stage name 50 Cent. Jackson, who was raised in Queens’ South Jamaica community, started dealing drugs at the age of 12 during the 1980s crack epidemic. Later, he started pursuing a musical career, and in 2000, he produced the album Power of the Dollar for Columbia Records. Unfortunately, he was shot just days before the album was to be released, so it was never made public.
Eminem discovered 50 Cent in 2002 after he released the mixtape Guess Who’s Back? and signed him to Shady Records, which was run by Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records. 50 Cent rose to fame as the de facto head of the East Coast hip-hop group G-Unit and one of the world’s greatest selling rappers with the help of Eminem and Dr. Dre (who produced his first major-label album Get Rich or Die Tryin’). He established G-Unit Records in 2003 and signed Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, and Tony Yayo as G-Unit members. He executive produced, starred in, and will create the spin-offs of the television series Power (2014 – 2020).
More than 30 million albums have been sold by 50 Cent globally, and he has received numerous honors, including a Grammy Award, a Primetime Emmy Award, thirteen Billboard Music Awards, six World Music Awards, three American Music Awards, and four BET Awards. Jackson performed in three movies as an actor: the military movie, Home of the Brave, the criminal thriller, Righteous Kill, and the semi-autobiographical movie, Get Rich or Die Tryin’.
American rapper 50 Cent also works as a producer, actor, and businessman. 50 Cent has an estimated $40 million net worth as of this writing. 50 Cent has made at least $260 million from his numerous activities over the course of his career, including selling songs, touring, and establishing several brand partnerships. Unfortunately, he has also been extravagant with his money, filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July 2015 due to his spending on real estate, automobiles, and lawsuits. This post will go into great detail about the file later. Before filing for bankruptcy, 50 Cent had a net worth of more than $100 million.
Sabrina Jackson, his mother, gave birth to 50 when she was just 15 years old. When he was only eight years old, 50’s mother unfortunately lost away at the young age of 23. In order to support herself and her son while raising him alone and fighting to make ends meet, Sabrina turned to a life of drug peddling.
Drug trafficking was profitable at the time since the crack epidemic was massively dominating society. 50 thinks Sabrina’s death in the horrific fire wasn’t an accident. He is certain that Sabrina’s premature death was caused by a competing drug dealer.
The father of 50 Cent is Curtis James Jackson. Although there isn’t much readily available information on him, we do know that his father shared his name with the rapper, and that he wasn’t actively involved in 50’s life throughout his boyhood.
Fif’s girlfriend is the 25-year-old model and Instagram influencer, Jamira “Cuban Link” Haines. She has her own business and is a fitness instructor under the name Cuban Fit.

According to reports, 50 Cent and Haines started dating early 2019.
Two boys are all that 50 Cent has. On October 13, 1997, Marquise Jackson, the rapper’s oldest child, was born. On September 1, 2012, the rapper’s second child, Sire Jackson, was born. While Sire Jackson is just 7 years old, Marquise is 22. Two women are the mothers of 50 Cent’s kids. Marquise Jackson, the oldest child of 50 Cent, was birthed by Shaniqua Jackson. Sire’s mother, on the other hand, is Daphne Joy.
