Eight years after rapper 50 Cent hit the hip hop scene with his first studio album "Get Rich Or Die Tryin," he
leader 50 Cent made history in a big way this week. His first album "Get Rich Or Die Trying" hit the 8 times platinum mark this week, 8 years after it’s release in February 2003.
GRODT is the fourth best-selling rap album off all time, behind Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP which has moved 10,341,000 copies, and The Eminem Show, that has sold 9,928,000 CD’s. GRODT follows the sucess of Nelly’s Country Grammar which currently stands 8,489,000 copies sold.
Congrats 50! He has really proven to be a force in hip-hop. Hope his widely anticipated next album Black Magic can live up to GRODT's success.
