50 Cent is undoubtedly one of the most popular rappers in the history of the Hip-Hop world, as he has worldwide appeal and has appeared in various mediums such as games, movies, books and more. He is also known to have a good time when needed.
50 Cent’s meteoric rise to the top during the early 2000s were a sight to behold. 50 Cent became an instant superstar after the release of his breakout single “In Da Club.” After that the rapper released his major-label debut Get Rich Or Die Tryin, an album some fans consider to be among the greatest ever produced.
He found lots of success in 2003 but despite that, when the 2004 Grammy Awards took place, 50 Cent was snubbed from the ‘Best New Artist category, which ultimately went to Evanescence.
17 years since then, it seems 50 Cent still isn’t over the infamous snub. It also isn’t the only snub 50 Cent suffered as he hasn’t received a single Emmy nomination despite being a big name in the television industry.
50 Cent took to his Instagram and had a sarcastic take on his snub while also referencing his 2004 Grammy snub. This was preceded by another post where 50 Cent couldn’t believe he was left off the Emmy nomination list.
“I can’t believe they left my show off this list Entertainment tonight should be ashamed of themselves.
First this then my Emmy nomination wow what a great day,” writes 50 Cent, after his name nor his work was included in the 2021 Emmy Nomination list. “Next i’ll win best new artist at the Grammy’s. i’m on a roll guys.”
50 Cent will remain one of the most beloved rappers and personalities in the television industry even if his work is not recognized by Awards ceremonies.
