UMe To Release First Greatest Hits Collection Of 50 Cent

UMe To Release First Greatest Hits Collection Of 50 Cent


New York, NY (Top40 Charts / UMe) On March 31, 2017, almost fifteen years after his explosive debut, UMe will release Best Of 50 Cent. This is 50 Cent's first "Best Of" compilation, which will be issued on CD, double LP*, and at all digital retail outlets. It includes classic cuts from the albums Get Rich or Die Tryin', The Massacre, Curtis, Before I Self Destruct, Music From And Inspired By Get Rich Or Die Tryin' The Motion Picture and the In Too Deep Motion Picture Soundtrack. Best Of 50 Cent also features the non-album tracks "Get Up" and "I Get It In," plus the bonus cut "How to Rob." Among his many legendary collaborators included are Mobb Deep, Akon, Ne-Yo, The Madd Rapper, Nate Dogg, Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, and Olivia, the first woman signed to 50 Cent's G-Unit label.

Backed and produced by Dr. Dre, Eminem, and Mike Elizondo, Get Rich or Die Tryin' was released in 2003. Its impact was immediate and undeniable, thanks to tracks like "21 Questions" (featuring Nate Dogg), "P.I.M.P.," and the ubiquitous banger, "In Da Club." Get Rich or Die Tryin' and its combination of gangster grit and dark wit went on to sell over 12 million copies and topped the charts for nine weeks. The album has since been ranked as one of Rolling Stone magazine's top 50 albums of the (00s) decade.

50 Cent's 2005 sophomore album, The Massacre, sold almost five million units, debuted at No. 1 in the U.S., and earned a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Rap Album. Once again co-produced by the winning trio Dr. Dre, Eminem and Mike Elizondo, as well as Hi-Tek and Scott Storch, The Massacre yielded the hits "Disco Inferno," "Candy Shop" (featuring Olivia), "Just a Lil Bit" and "Outta Control" (featuring Mobb Deep), with "Candy Shop" hitting No. 1 and "Outta Control" peaking at No. 6 in the U.S. That same year, 50 Cent made his acting debut in the semi-autobiographical movie Get Rich or Die Tryin'. Its soundtrack produced the hits "Hustler's Ambition," "Best Friend" (with Olivia)" and "Window Shopper," all featured on this compilation.

In 2007, 50 Cent's third album Curtis debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and featured the singles "Ayo Technology" (featuring Justin Timberlake and Timbaland), "Straight to the Bank," "I Get Money" and "I'll Still Kill" (featuring Akon), all included here. The hits "Baby by Me" (featuring Ne-Yo), from 2009's Before I Self Destruct, "Get Up" and "I Get It In" (both non-album singles) are also included on Best Of 50 Cent.

Closing with Fifty's debut single "How to Rob" (featuring The Madd Rapper) from the In Too Deep Motion Picture Soundtrack, Best Of 50 Cent is a career-spanning chronicle of one of music's most compelling and influential rap artists, 50 Cent.
