50 Cent hit the scene with "How To Rob" and he's been on a rampage ever since dealing with bootleggers, label back stabbing and other platinum selling artists trying to get at him physically.
Supposedly, Trackmasters weren't comfortable with him being caught up in the streets and getting shot three days before filming the video for "Thug Love," (with Destiny's Child) -- his first single. 50 was shot three times that night, two shots hitting him in the head, the bullet that struck his face he carries as a reminder of what happened. How you know this ain’t the love connection connection we been waiting for girl?you know I say things I don’t mean.” Your turn, Taraji!
