he got his nickname because he didnt want the police known him as curtis Jackson and he became famouse with the name 50 cent.

50 cent is a metaphor for change according to the man himself he said he wants to leave crime behind and give him and his son who is now either 10, 11 or 12 possibly 13 maybe 14 a better life. awwwwwwwww. inside every hard gangster theres a heart... none of them are heartless!
