Even after more than nineteen years, the debut and iconic 50 Cent’s “Get Rich Or Die Tryin’” album hits new milestones. The famous record went from 155th to 165th place on the Billboard 200 chart, meaning it has been a hundred and fifty weeks since “Get Rich Or Die Tryin’” rejoined the chart. 

The initial release in 2003 brought 50 Cent’s debut album to first place in the charts. Artist’s net worth almost tripled between 2003-2005 (from $5,031,004 to $16,455,501), making the “Get Rich Or Die Tryin’” album not only a legendary album but a career breaker for the “High All The Time” artist. In 2005, a homonymous movie also came out.

50 Cent & Ye

In the wake of Ye projecting his ‘independent thinking’ onto the smaller and larger crowds, 50 Cent came out to leave his own statement. “I have never seen anything like this before,” Fifty typed on Instagram. “I think Kanye should buy the car he likes the best and just ride off into the sun set, it’s really a wrap. People are really hurt by this shit. I have seen people in this position because of thing they have did not things they have said. Now you gotta master the art of shutting the fuck up! … you gonna make everybody hot. Go cool off!”

It’s unclear whether Ye ever responded to 50’s comment. However, the “Get Rich Or Die Tryin’” author also went to further his point in an interview for Hot 97.

Dr. Kogan’s Rumors

In February 2020, 50 Cent took a picture with Dr. Angela Kogan at Perfection Plastic Surgery and MedSpa. Dr. Kogan posted a photo on Instagram without indicating what kind of operation 50 has gotten.

Later on, the image appeared in The Shade Room’s article. Dr. Kogan was giving the magazine an interview about a rising amount of men enlarging their penises. This was a point of no return for 50 Cent. 

The “Many Men” artist went to court, claiming that he thought Kogan was only a fan and would not use their image for commercial purposes on Instagram or anywhere else. 

The case is still developing.
