50 Cent looks back to the album that brought him into the game.
For over fifteen years, 50 Cent has been one of the most prominent figures in hip-hop. His music may not come as frequently as it once did but we're basically guaranteed to get our daily laughs in from his social content. The entrepreneur consistently comes for people's necks with vicious troll efforts and hilarious memes, refreshing his image for a younger audience. 50 can be looked at as one of the more influential figures of the last fifteen years. With all that he's accomplished in music, television and film, it's insane to think of how he's remained relevant for so many years. Today marks the anniversary of his debut album Get Rich Or Die Tryin's release and Fif was sure to remind people of how it catapulted him into the throne.

The record has aged well too with many still bumping it on a regular basis. What's your favorite track from it?
