Final Lap World Tour
Hip-hop artist 50 Cent, also known as Curtis Jackson, is set to kick off his “Final Lap” tour, commemorating the 20th anniversary of his iconic album “Get Rich or Die Tryin’.” The tour will span North America, Europe, and Australasia, with the possibility of additional dates in Asia and beyond. Jackson expressed that this will likely be his last extensive tour due to his commitments in film and TV production.
Transition from Music to Film and TV
Having transitioned to TV and film a decade ago, 50 Cent explains that he took a significant pay cut but considered it a strategic business decision. He emphasizes the importance of connecting with his older audience through his work in the entertainment industry, particularly with the hit show “Power.” Jackson acknowledges the continued support from his loyal fanbase, who have played a crucial role in his success.
Nostalgia and Future Collaborations
Reflecting on his breakthrough album, Jackson reminisces about the immense success of his debut single “In Da Club” and its enduring popularity. Despite not releasing a studio album since 2014, he still maintains a prominent position on Spotify’s worldwide rankings. While discussing potential future tours, Jackson reveals that reuniting with his mentors Eminem and Dr. Dre could be a tempting factor. However, he believes that such a collaboration is unlikely to happen.
As 50 Cent embarks on this final major world tour, he looks back on his remarkable journey, from his early struggles and overwhelming success to his current ventures beyond the music industry.
