If not anything else, hip hop fans can agree 50 Cent exceeded initial expectations. He was categorized as a 21st century gangsta rapper, but he turned himself into the all-American gangster. 50 Cent is a business titan who has ownership in all types of companies.

50 Cent began his mogul moves in 2005 and it started with his Get Rich or Die Tryin‘ movie. Many rappers were a part of the American Gangster movie, which starred Denzel Washington and also featured Common and T.I. Jay-Z became the star of the film with his album of the same name.

Six years after the fact, 50 Cent’s audition tape for the film hit the internet. Always looking to branch out and do different things, 50 Cent has become a mainstay in the films. The audition tape of the Queens emcee leaked to the internet earlier today and fans are leaving their feedback.
