It’s coming up to 15 years since 50 Cent released ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and to celebrate, 50’s coming down under for two massive outdoor shows, one in Sydney and one in Melbourne. Turns out it’s been over a decade since 50 toured down under, he was last here in 2006 just after the release of the movie ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’, so fans are obviously pretty stoked he’ll be coming back in 2018.
Get Rich or Die Tryin’ is the major-label debut studio album by 50 Cent. It was released February 6, 2003, by Aftermath, Shady, Interscope and Universal. The album was produced by Dr. Dre and Eminem, and featured guest appearances from Eminem, Nate Dogg, Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, and Tony Yayo.
