Eight years ago, 50 Cent signed the $1 million contract with powerhouse, Interscope Records. At the time, he and his team were celebrating because they had made it. While they knew they had something great, 50 Cent and G-Unit had no idea the movement would become.
Following the release of Get Rich or Die Tryin', 50 Cent branched out into clothing and shoes. By 2004, he had a full roster of artists on G-Unit Records. Once he built the label, he expanded his company into film. In 2005, 50 Cent released his blockbuster hit, Get Rich or Die Tryin' movie.
Six years later, 50 Cent has scaled things down quite a bit, but he is still in the big money. Recently, he expanded his sub-brand, ThisIs50. So far, it houses his ThisIs50.com site and 50 Cent has bigger plans with a comedy show. Yesterday, 50 Cent revealed his intentions to launch a comedy show named "This Is 50 Comedy Show."
With the news spreading across several hip hop sites, 50 Cent has now discussed the show. He said he has some of the funniest comedians signed on for the tour. The comedy show will launch tomorrow and an episode will air once a month. Watching the show online will be free, but a charge on admission will take place to watch the show live at the Times Square Arts Center. 50 Cent said his tour will travel the earth entertaining and making people laugh for years to come.
