Most younger fans know 50 Cent best for playing Kanan on “Power” and for his social media jokes. But, nobody was as hot as 50 Cent, when he first came in the game. The G-Unit leader broke the record for hip hop record sales, with his debut.
50 Cent’s success was five years in the making, so he did have struggles, but he overcame them. Early in 2003, Get Rich or Die Tryin’ dropped to much fanfare. The second and third singles both ended up topping Billboard, and the fourth was no slouch.
When “P.I.M.P.” dropped, late in the summer of 2003, 50 Cent decided to use it to introduce Lloyd Banks and Young Buck. Also, Snoop Dogg was added to the track. The song went onto dominate radio from late summer, well into the late fall of 2003, leading into the G-Unit album.
