Go shawty, it’s 50 Cent’s 20-year anniversary tour

The “P.I.M.P.” rapper’s career is rollin’ 20 years deep.

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is commemorating two decades of sippin’ bub’ in the club like it’s your birthday with his Final Lap Tour 2023, marking the 20th anniversary of his major-label debut album, “Get Rich or Die Tryin’,” which The Times wrote was “the biggest sales sensation of the year,” selling 872,000 copies in just four days.

The album, which Interscope Records dropped Feb. 6, 2003, was a joint venture between Eminem’s Shady Records and Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Records. It included radio and club hits “Wanksta,” “P.I.M.P.” and “In Da Club.”

“It’s exciting to reach the 20-year mark in anything when hip-hop is a youth culture, out with the old, in with the new,” the rapper told Rolling Stone this year. “So it means more that you’re able to stick around and be able to sustain relevance.”

Busta Rhymes and Jeremih will open all the North American dates. The tour kicks off in July and includes stops in the U.S., Canada, Europe and the United Kingdom.

Tickets will be available to participants through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program beginning May 10. Concertgoers can register now through Sunday.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public May 12.
