In June , the Queens-bred rapper—who signed with Columbia Records in the late s, recorded an album called Power of the Dollar , and was unceremoniously dropped from said label after getting shot before the album ever hit stores—released a mixtape called 50 Cent Is the Future. Armed with a slew of catchy hooks, some help from his G-Unit crew—which consisted of fellow rap up-and-comers Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo—and one hell of a back story he infamously got shot nine times in May , 50 Cent found his voice on that mixtape and let the world know what he already knew to be true: That 50 Cent was the future. Since then, 50 has accomplished just about everything there is to accomplish as a rapper. He's released a handful of chart-topping albums, including his classic debut, Get Rich or Die Tryin'. He's crafted hit singles that have landed on the Billboard charts over and over and over again with favorites like "In Da Club" or "Candy Shop. In the past few years he's largely struggled to reinvent himself as an artist and keep himself relevant. Still, more than a decade after releasing 50 Cent Is the Future , his latest album, Animal Ambition , is being released independently this week through his own G-Unit Records imprint on Capitol Records. Even if he isn't what he once was, 50 Cent is still one of the most important rappers of the s.

You can't accurately tell the story of mid's hip-hop without mentioning 50 Cent, an artist who defined commercial gangsta rap with bulletproof street mythos, grimy lyrics and a knack for anthemic hooks. Fif first made serious noise when he dropped his tongue-in-cheek single, "How to Rob. The song was supposed to be on his debut album, Power of a Dollar , but after 50 was shot in May , the LP was shelved and he was released from his record deal with Columbia Records. Three years later, he hit the scene harder than ever. In , Eminem and Dr. Released in , "In Da Club" saw 50 use a slightly slurred delivery—the result of being shot in the mouth in the shooting—as he repurposed a modern happy birthday song to make a hit for the club. Also on the album were tracks like the scathing diss song "Piggy Bank" and "Just a Lil Bit," the latter being another commercial ditty that only fortified 50's album sales. At times playful, at others deadly serious, Fif continued to spend his pre-TV career vacillating between street anthems and tracks made for the radio. On his album, Curtis , he shot back to the top of the charts with "I Get Money," a track that included quote-worthy death threats and a sample-based hook that begs for repeats. That same LP also includes the Akon-featured single "Still Kill," a track that continues Fif's penchant for street music.
