50 Cent Broke As A Joke

50 Cent's real name is Curtis Jackson which explains why he overcompensated with his vibrant pen name. As it turns out the dude whose image was based entirely on flaunting rented Lambos and piles of cash which should have been invested has filed for bankruptcy

50 is in debt somewhere between 10 and 50 million dollars, meaning he ironically doesn't have fifty cents to his name. That's not ironic, but it is cute. Shit, the girl who writes headlines for Yahoo beat me to it. Let that be a lesson. Humility is a virtue. So is NASDAQ. 

50 was successfully sued for ripping off a headphone design and also had to pay out $5 million to a woman whose sex tape he posted online to anger Rick Ross who is currently out on bail for beating up his gardener. There's a lesson to be learned here. Stay out of Florida. 

50 Cent no doubt has some cash locked away but becoming financially solvent should prove slower than the seven year itch.  His ridiculous songs should now count as a cautionary tale. Don't act like a douche and save your money. 

You can't rap forever.
