Backed and produced by Dr. Dre, Eminem, and Mike Elizondo, Get Rich or Die Tryin’ was released in 2003. Its impact was immediate and undeniable, thanks to tracks like “21 Questions” (featuring Nate Dogg), “P.I.M.P.,” and the ubiquitous banger, “In Da Club.” Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and its combination of gangster grit and dark wit went on to sell over 12 million copies and topped the charts for nine weeks. The album has since been ranked as one of Rolling Stone magazine’s top 50 albums of the (00s) decade.
50 Cent’s 2005 sophomore album, The Massacre, sold almost five million units, debuted at No. 1 in the U.S., and earned a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Rap Album. Once again co-produced by the winning trio Dr. Dre, Eminem and Mike Elizondo, as well as Hi-Tek and Scott Storch, The Massacre yielded the hits “Disco Inferno,” “Candy Shop” (featuring Olivia), “Just a Lil Bit” and “Outta Control” (featuring Mobb Deep), with “Candy Shop” hitting No. 1
