50 cent

  • Curtis James Jackson III (born July 6, 1975).
  • In the mid 1980s, he competed in the Junior Olympics as an amateur boxer.
  • On June 29, 1994, Jackson was arrested for helping to sell four vials of cocaine to an undercover police officer.
  • On May 24, 2000, 50 Cent was attacked by a gunman, alleged to be Darryl "Hommo" Baum, outside his grandmother's former home in South Jamaica, Queens.  He went into a friend's car, but was asked to return to the house to get jewelry. His son was in the house while his grandmother was in the front yard.  On returning to the back seat of the car, another car pulled up nearby. An assailant then walked up to 50 Cent's left side with a 9mm handgun and fired nine shots at close range.
