Top 50 Cent Business Ventures

Don't miss 50 Cent tonight on 106 & Park!

50 Cent - Get Rich or Die Tryin' is the album that launched an empire, and the man on the throne is, of course, 50 Cent himself. The album made him rap's center of gravity for years to follow, with seemingly endless rap foot soldiers, a successful clothing line, an acting career and massive business deals. However, after increasingly disappointing follow-ups and a long break between albums, Fif finds himself struggling to regain his former relevance. He's currently working on the much-delayed album Street King Immortal, which has seen numerous release dates and two middling singles come and go.   (Photo: Mike Coppola/Getty Images)
