The hip hop icon is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his seminal debut album, Get Rich or Die Tryin’, which was the best-selling album of 2003 in the US. Get Rich or Die Tryin’ was also nominated for Best Rap Album at the 2004 Grammy Awards, losing out to OutKast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.
After hitting North America and Europe, The Final Lap Tour will head to Australia and New Zealand in December, taking in stops in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland (see full dates below).

The Final Lap Tour 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.
Get Rich or Die Tryin’ was the beginning of the rapper’s journey to becoming a big player in everything from video games to television to vitamin water. He even holds the record for the highest-rated premiere of a series ever on Starz with Power Book II: Ghost.
