Early Life

In Queens, New York City, Curtis James Jackson III was born and raised by his mother Sabrina in the South Jamaica neighborhood. After Sabrina died in a fire when Jackson was 8, Jackson was raised by a drug dealer named Sabrina. According to Jackson, his mother is a lesbian. As a result of his mother’s death and his father’s departure, Jackson was raised by his grandparents.

When Jackson was 12, his grandparents thought he was in an after-school program and brought guns and drug money to school. When he was in tenth grade, metal detectors caught him at Andrew Jackson High School: “I felt embarrassed that I got caught. But after that, I stopped hiding it and told my grandmother openly that I sold drugs.”.

A police officer undercover arrested Jackson on June 29, 1994, for selling four vials of cocaine. The police searched his home three weeks later and found heroin, crack cocaine, and a starting pistol. While Jackson served six months in a boot camp and earned his GED, he was sentenced to three to nine years in prison. According to him, he did not use cocaine himself. In order to symbolize change, Jackson adopted the nickname “50 Cent.” Inspired by 1970s Brooklyn robber Kelvin Martin, “50 Cent” means “I provide for myself by any means necessary.”. Jackson chose the name because it defines who he is.


Jackson began rapping over instrumentals in the basement of a friend. Jam Master Jay of Run-DMC, who was establishing Jam Master Jay Records, was introduced to him by a friend in 1996. Counting bars, writing choruses, structuring songs, and making records was taught to him by Jay. In 1998, Jackson appeared on the album Shut ‘Em Down with Onyx. In addition to producing Jackson’s first (unreleased) album, Jam Master Jay improved his ability to write hooks. Jackson signed with Columbia Records after leaving Jam Master Jay’s Trackmasters in 1999. On Power of the Dollar, his 2000 album, he produced thirty-six songs in two weeks in an upstate New York studio. Former G-Unit member Bang ‘Em Smurf and Jackson founded Hollow Point Entertainment.

Jackson’s popularity grew after he wrote the successful underground single “How to Rob” in a half-hour car ride to a studio. He describes robbing famous artists in a comical manner. According to Jackson, “there are a hundred artists on that label, so you have to differentiate yourself from that group to be relevant”. The track was embraced by Jay-Z, Kurupt, Sticky Fingaz, Big Pun, DMX, Wyclef Jean, and the Wu-Tang Clan, and Nas invited Jackson to tour with him. Two days before he was scheduled to film the “Thug Love” music video, Jackson was shot and hospitalized. “How to Rob” was supposed to be released with “Thug Love” (with Destiny’s Child).

Personal Life 

Marquise Jackson was born on October 13, 1996, to Jackson’s girlfriend, Shaniqua Tompkins. In 2009, Tompkins sued Jackson for $50 million, claiming he promised to take care of her forever. As a result of a sour love relationship, the judge dismissed the case with 15 causes of action. Their feud has raged for years, and they’ve even taken it to social media a couple of times.

In response to his son’s birth, Jackson changed his priorities: When my son was born, I wanted to have the kind of relationship with him that I didn’t have with my father. Among other things, his son inspired his career and motivated him to change his direction. In 2008, Jackson and Tompkins separated, resulting in a fractured relationship between the two. Numerous times in the past, their feud has been brought to social media, including in 2020 when Jackson revealed that he “used to” love his son. Jackson’s right bicep is tattooed with Marquise with an axe (The axe represents me as a warrior, but I do not want him to be one), and his back is tattooed with 50, Southside, and Cold World: These are the things behind me.

Fame and fortune

In 2002, Eminem discovered Jackson. In response to “Guess Who’s Back?” Eminem invited Jason to meet Dr. Dre in Los Angeles. A Jackson song appeared on the soundtrack of Eminem’s movie “8 Mile.” Jackson signed a $1 million record deal. Almost a million copies of 50 Cent’s debut album “Get Rich or Die Trying” were sold in the first four days after its release on Billboard. During its first week on radio, “In Da Club” set a record for most-listened-to song. The label, G-Unit Records, was given to 50 by Interscope shortly thereafter. It took Jackson six weeks to sell 1.14 million copies of his next album, “The Massacre,” in its first four days. In 2007, Curtis released his third album, which debuted at No. 2.

It was released in November 2009 as album number four, “Before I Self Destruct.”. A dispute with his record label delayed the release of his fifth album, “Street King Immortal,” until November 2012. He has sold more than 21 million albums to date.

Bankruptcy Filing ( Chapter 11)

The Wall Street Journal reported on July 13, 2015, that 50 Cent had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Since 50 is a Connecticut resident, the bankruptcy was filed in Hartford Connecticut.

When JACKSON filed, he lived in the old Mike Tyson mansion located at 50 Poplar Hill Dr, Farmington, CT 06032. Jackson reported assets between $10 million and $50 million in the filing. According to him, he owed the same amount in debt.

Earlier this week, a jury awarded $5 million in judgment to Rick Ross’ ex-girlfriend, Lavonia Leviston, for intentionally releasing a sex tape in which she appeared. For the use of her image without permission and emotional distress, she was awarded $2.5 million. Mr. Jackson was also ordered to produce proof of income and value so the jury could determine punitive damages.

Approximately a year earlier, a different judge ordered 50 to pay $17.5 million in damages in a trademark infringement case related to a former partner in a headphone company. Prior to punitive damages being calculated in the sex tape case, he faced a potential legal judgment of $22.5 million.
