Even though the “In Da Club” rapper hasn’t put out a studio album since 2014, he still commands a high fee to perform live. In a recent interview with Billboard, the 47-year-old artist said, “I’m receiving like $900,000, $1 million.”
“Celebrities are the coolest thing we produce in America. “If you look at LeBron [James]’ fan base around the world, you could question, “Why is he staying here?” He is well-known abroad. I can’t speak for everyone, but generally speaking, the international side of the game is different.”
The 50-year-old executive producer and star of the popular television series “Power” continued, “I get the attention I want from music when I want it. “Everywhere I visited during my recent 45-country trip was sold out. That motivated me to provide fresh music that I could now include in everything.
I completed my goals in the [sales] capacity. Over 35 million of my records have been sold.” On Monday, “Get Rich or Die Tryin’,” 50 Cent’s debut album, celebrated its 20th birthday. One of the best-selling hip-hop albums of all time, the album has sold more than 12 million copies globally to date.
The album’s creation was heavily influenced by Sha Money XL, the former CEO of 50’s record label, G-Unit Records. Three of the album’s songs, “High All the Time,” “Poor Lil Rich,” and “Wanksta,” were written and produced by him. The entire production was recorded at his home.”
Sha, whose actual name is Michael Jean Clervoix, said the record was “the best portion” of his life when reflecting on it 20 years later. “It’s incredible. I feel like it’s almost the same year now, 20 years later. Because of the album’s continued high energy level, it feels like 2003 right now “said he. “We truly became wealthy without failing.”
