We already told you that 50 Cent is a king of content. But let’s not forget that the first realm he conquered was music. The Grammy nominated rap superstar was a juggernaut in his prime. The entertainer easily had one of the most dominant runs in hip-hop history. At the height of his music career, 50 Cent albums and songs not only topped the charts, they broke records.
50 Cent didn’t just make hits. He made timeless records. Songs he released in the early 2000s can still get a birthday party started in 2023. He was such a hit factory that he was able to give out super successful hits to other artists. The Game’s No. 1 hits “How We Do” and “Hate It Or Love It” were originally intended for 50’s sophomore album, The Massacre.
50 Cent became one of the highest selling rappers ever with the release of his first three albums. His albums were responsible for record-breaking first week sales, even when he lost a sales battle to Ye.
