We’ve waited long enough for a 50 Cent tour, and the man himself certainly thinks so, too.

Speaking about his upcoming shows on Twitter, the Queens-born rapper said: “You’ve waited long enough! The Final Lap Tour celebrating Get Rich or Die Tryin’ — 20 years later with special guest and long-time friend, Busta Rhymes, across all dates.”

50 Cent’s debut studio album Get Rich or Die Tryin’ was released back in 2003 on February 6th. Now, over 20 years later, the artist is going on tour to celebrate the career-defining album which produced hits like In da Club and PIMP.

Get Rich or Die Tryin’ debuted and peaked at number one on the United States Billboard 200, selling a staggering over 872,000 copies in its first week. It was America’s best-selling album of 2003, being nominated for Best Rap Album at the Grammy Awards and winning the Favourite Rap/Hip Hop Album award at the American Music Awards.

The singles In da Club and 21 Questions reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and the album was awarded the number one spot on the Billboard Year-End charts.

Get Rich or Die Tryin's impact continued well after its release date, too. In 2020, the album was certified Platinum nine times over by the RIAA and it also featured on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list.

50 Cent’s The Final Lap tour will include performances of fan favourite track, from Get Rich or Die Tryin’, and other albums such as The Massacre which produced tunes like Candy Shop and Disco Inferno, and the album Curtis where 50 Cent collaborated with artists like Mary J Blige, Eminem, Akon, and Justin Timberlake. And you can also expect tracks which apparently haven’t been performed live in decades – the RadioTimes.com team are personally hoping for Ayo Technology.

With a Grammy Award, Primetime Emmy Award, 13 Billboard Music Awards, six World Music Awards, four BET Awards and three American Music Awards under his belt, 50 Cent truly is a force to be reckoned with, and we have huge expectations from the rapper’s 20th anniversary tour.
