The Original 50 Cent (Documentary)
“50 Cent terrorized the streets of Fort Greene, Brooklyn and its surrounding areas. Often known to carry a Colt .45 and .357 Magnum, like a modern day Billy “The Kid”, the “little man” put fear into the hearts of local residents during what was the height of the crack cocaine epidemic. It’s rumored that 50 Cent murdered some 30 individuals. Eventually, 50 Cent’s exploits caught up with him.
Rapper 50 Cent, who allegedly did his hustling on the street of Jamaica, Queens, is interviewed for the documentary and discusses why “the streets” were talking about his namesake and why he assumed the name of the Brooklyn gangster.”
