It’s a good time to read 50 Cent’s cover feature: the GRAMMY winner is currently celebrating the 20th anniversary of his seminal debut album, Get Rich or Die Tryin’, which he’ll perform for fans in Australia and New Zealand later this year.

Get Rich or Die Tryin’ was the best-selling album of 2003 in the US. 50 Cent’s debut was also nominated for Best Rap Album at the 2004 Grammy Awards, only losing out to OutKast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.

After hitting North America and Europe, the rapper’s ‘The Final Lap Tour’ will head to Australia and New Zealand this December, taking in stops in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Auckland. (see full dates below).

The upcoming shows will see 50 Cent – real name Curtis Jackson – perform lots of fan favourite and chart-topping hits alongside select tracks that haven’t been performed live in decades.
