50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, has been in the rap game for over 20 years, dating back to his Get Rich or Die Tryin’ debut album. Before he arrived on the scene, legendary recording artist Eminem heard 50’s version of Guess Who’s Back and was impressed with the young upstart. This led to Fif signing a $1 million dollar deal and flying to LA to meet Dr. Dre. Fast-forward to now, and Eminem’s partnership with 50 Cent continues.
Eminem took to social media and wished his long-time collaborator a happy birthday. Jackson turned 47 today, and Eminem celebrated the occasion by posting a photo of himself with Jackson and Dre standing together.
Along with a simple “Happy birthday” message, Eminem dropped an epic photo of himself with 50 Cent and Dr. Dre. We’re sure that photo will become many fan’s phone wallpaper.
Eminem and Dre helped produce Jackson’s first album back in 2002. He would later become one of the world’s best-selling rap artists, selling over 30 million albums worldwide and winning many awards. He is also executive produced and starred in the television series Power.
Jackson recently moved to Houston to pursue other ventures. He made a surprise appearance during the 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show. His last album was 2008’s Animal Ambition. We’re still waiting for 50’s next project, but in the meantime we’re hoping he has a happy birthday.
