"Curtis Jackson, more commonly known as rap icon 50 Cent, appeared on CNBC's Power Lunch today to discuss the art of getting rich, and to plug his book, "The 50th Law."
Jackson's a mega-star, but he's also a shrewd businessman. Last year he pulled in a reported $150 million, and was ranked as Forbes' top celebrity earner. His deal-making skills reportedly earned him an after tax profit of $100 million on his early investment in Vitaminwater.
Teaming up with Robert Greene, the author of the cult self-help book, "The 48 Laws Of Power" - a favorite of several prominent rappers - Jackson's book urges readers to live without fear. The book also suggests using "intense realism" to "see things for what they are."
This is a good look but damn 50, why didn't you have someone fix your tie correctly?
