Video After The Jump
VH1 remastered 50 Cent's Behind The Music episode with updated video and news about the hip hop mogul.
We get a look at 50's upbringing, what drives him to succeed, the video shoot for "We Up" featuring Kendrick Lamar, starting his career by using the name of well known Brooklyn stick up kid Kelvin "50 Cent" Martin, getting shot 9 times and the birth of his son Marquise.
The show also explores the G-Unit boss' song "How To Rob" which got the attention of everyone including Jay-Z who dissed 50, which actually helped set off his career, his acting career, his relationship with Chelsea Handler his business ventures, philanthropic efforts and his beefs with Ja Rule, Rick Ross, Nas, Fat Joe and more.
50 bounced back from getting shot and linked up with Chris Lighty of Violator Management. Their business relationship turned into a friendship and 50's career began to take off when Eminem and Dr. Dre signed him.
When Chris Lighty passed away in 2012 it took a toll on 50. He's had to make a big readjustment because Chris was such a huge part of 50's growth, but he's bounced back and is getting ready to release his Street King Immortal album.
