Rapper 50 Cent has become one of the biggest names in Hollywood thanks to his time as an artist, producer, and filmmaker. The entertainer, worn in the South Jamaica section of Queens, began his career in the mid-1990s. In 1997, 50 Cent committed to mastering his craft and started writing lyrics full time, he told The Big Issue.

Jam Master Jay from Run D.M.C. helped 50 further develop his skills, which prepared him for entry into the world of hip-hop.

In 1999, 50 Cent signed a recording deal with Columbia Records and was spearheaded towards success. That same year, the rapper fell victim to a shooting but miraculously survived the nine-bullet barrage. He was left with wounds to his legs, arms, chest, and face.

He revealed during an interview with Oprah that being shot was less painful than he thought it would be, saying, "It doesn't hurt as much as people imagine it hurts because of the adrenaline. But it hurts after."
