50 Cent was the first to use other famous hits and do a remake, he was making mixtape after mixtape until he made a compilation album named Guess Who’s Back, the album made its way to Eminem and Dr. Dre. Then him and other rappers created a group G UNIT, and all of them were also doing the same strategy to stay on the scene, taking other popular songs and do remixes.

50 Cent then made his Album, Get Rich or Dir Trying, the album went to be a major success and even turned into a movie, In Da Club track was the biggest track made by 50 Cent all time.

Whenever Hip-hop or Rap music is mentioned in a conversation, if 50cent was not part of the conversation, for sure he came to someone’s mind, he made big hits that still rocking a lot of clubs and he is still touring the world performing his album “Get Rich Or Die Trying”. the songs in the album and other songs in his catalog still pays him a lot of money untill today, and still he still relevant and makes songs with “now” artist even though he finds hard time finding rapper that are from this area and still representing Hiphop in a good way.
