    Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, one of the biggest and most popular stars in hip-hop, is the charismatic driving force behind Get Rich or Die Tryin', a hard-hitting drama directed by six-time Oscar nominee Jim Sheridan about an orphaned street kid who makes his mark in the drug trade but finally dares to leave the violence behind and become the rap artist he was meant to be. Marcus (Jackson) has always known he was going to be a rapper, but when his mother is murdered, he turns to dealing - hustling drugs pays the rent. As his world spirals out of control, he begins to apply the same manic intensity to his writing as he does to dealing; he has to write down his words to stay sane. For years, he endures this living hell until a tragey that nearly kills him gets Marcus to change his life.moreless

    Get Rich or Die Tryin' is a 2005 drama film starring Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson based loosely on the actual life of the leading actor. The film was headed by Academy award-nominee Jim Sheridon. (My Left Foot, Brothers, In the Name of the Father) The film documents the struggles of 50 Cent as he tries to become a rap superstar. 50 Cent must honor his mother and his girlfriend all while trying to get a piece of the proverbial pie. The film was modeled after 8 Mile which was a critical and financial success, but it was not received in the same light. The Tomatometer score provided by Rotten Tomatoes awards the film a 16% which is extremely negative. The film did make a profit over its $40m budget which would give some fans hope for a sequel. The reception of the film certainly didn't stop 50 Cent from an acting career; he has since appeared in an episode of Entourage and 2006's Home of the Brave.moreless
