After releasing his record “Guess Who’s Back?” in 2002, Jackson was learned by rapper Eminem and signed to Interscope Records, Shady Records and Aftermath Entertainment. Together with the aid of Eminem and Dr. Dre, who produced his first important commercial successes, Jackson became one of the world’s best selling rappers. In 2003, he founded the record label G-Unit Records, which signed several successful rappers like Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, and Tony Yayo.
He’s also pursued an acting career, appearing in the semi autobiographical movie “Get Rich or Die Tryin'” in 2005, the Iraq War movie “Home of the Brave” in 2006, and “Righteous Kill” in 2008. 50 Cent was ranked as the sixth-greatest artist of the 2000s by “Billboard” magazine.
