About Lesson

50 Cent
Rapper, Actor, and Entrepreneur

To say 50 Cent has been an American Icon would be an understatement. Conjuring up his name paints the image of his survival of 9 shots wearing a bulletproof vest and being signed to Dr. Dre and Eminem. 50 Cent has impacted businesses in a wide range of industries to the tune of over $14 Billion in realized value. His economic impact is vast and diverse. 50 Cent was critical in Starz sale to Lionsgate for $4.4 billion. His show Power is number one on the network and is responsible for growing the subscriber base by over six million since its debut in 2014. The show also played a role in recent negotiations between Lionsgate and Comcast over broadcasting rights. CBS had recently made a bid for the Starz network for $5 billion which shows the impact 50 Cent has had on the TV production and streaming scene. RBK was sold to Adidas for $3.8 billion dollars in 2005 and G-unit branded shoes accounted for over six million pairs in shoe sales.

“I think everybody should have a five-year plan – make short-term goals and long-term goals. I had created a plan for all the situations and kind of thought out different scenarios so I would be prepared for these situations when they came. The success of Get Rich or Die Tryin’ allowed me the opportunity to do things that I planned in five years, in six months. I was able to do the deal and set up the companies and move forward at a faster pace.”
