The smooth-flowing 50 Cent was becoming well-known in hip-hop circles, and the biggest break of his career was just around the corner. Chapter 4 "Something About 50" A copy of one of 50 Cent’s mixtapes that made its way to rapper Eminem started a chain of events that eventually would make the Queens-raised musician a household name. When he first heard 50 Cent’s music in 2002, Marshall “Eminem” Mathers was a music-industry mogul who had sold millions of records as a rapper and had founded a record label that sold millions more records.

The leak angered 50 Cent so much that he ripped a television off the wall in his office and threw his cellphone through an unopened window. Fifty’s showing may have been disappointing to him, but it was one most artists would have died for. Curtis only reached number two on the Billboard album charts in the United States, but it was number one in several other countries, including Australia, Ireland, and Switzerland. In general, critics did not like 50 Cent’s new album as much as they had his previous two.

Curtis moved into the cramped two-story home along with his grandparents and several aunts and uncles. On Sundays, the large family would dress up in their best clothes and head off to the local Baptist church. In school, Curtis was a hyper kid who found it difficult to sit still for lessons. For a period of time, his grandmother even tried treating his hyperactivity with medicine. When he hit junior high school, Curtis suddenly became less interested in school. Now twelve years old, he began hustling the streets, just as his mother had done when she was only a little older than he was then.
