It’s a rare visit to Scotland for the superstar US rapper, who last visited the country in November 2015 when he played to a packed audience at the SSE Hyrdo in Glasgow.
The platinum-selling artist has cemented himself in the Hip Hop Hall of Fame with tracks like “In Da Club,” “Candy Shop,” and “PIMP,” which are among his best-known numbers.
Born in Queens in 1975, 50 Cent — real name Curtis James Jackson III — embarked on a musical career and was poised to release “Power of the Dollar” for record giant Columbia Records.
He was shot dead just days before the planned release and the album never saw the light of day.
Eminem took a young 50’s under his wing and also with the help of Dr. Dre one of the best rappers in the world.
His career has been a trophy-strewn one and over the years he has won a Grammy Award, 13 Billboard Music Awards, six World Music Awards, three American Music Awards and four BET Awards. In addition, he has sold over 30 million albums worldwide.
