In his film debut, hip-hop superstar Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson explodes across the screen in this hard-hitting urban drama from acclaimed director Jim Sheridan (In America).
Following a near-fatal gun battle, Marcus ("50 Cent") recalls his journey from orphaned street kid from the Bronx to making his mark in the drug trade to teaming up with a fellow ex-con (Terrence Howard) for his shot at becoming a successful rap artist.
This gripping tale, based on "50 Cent's" real life story, is "a film with a rich and convincing texture, a drama with power and anger." - Roger Ebert
