50 Cent’s Instagram exploded with reactions to a photo of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The seasoned rapper/actor received the honor in Hollywood on Thursday (January 30) and quickly shared the moment with his 25.2 million Instagram followers.
“South Side on the map,” the Queens native wrote in the caption. “wait till they see how I run with this. Hahaha they never seen nothing like me before.”
Several of 50’s peers paid homage to the Power co-creator in the comment section, including Tech N9ne, Wiz Khalifa, Public Enemy’s DJ Lord, Lord Finesse, DJ Envy, Denaun, DJ Pooh, Planet Asia, Uncle Murda, Kid Ink, DJ Chuck Chillout, DJ Self and T.I.
“Man I’m so proud of you brotha!” Tech wrote. “You so high up that you can’t hear the hate from these niggas! Remember that! L9ve, T9!”
Tip added, “Congratulations King,” while Uncle Murda told him it was “#Welldeserved.”
During the ceremony, Hollywood Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez said, “Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson is a man of many talents and star power. He has pursued many types of entertainment genres and done so with huge success. We are proud to add this talented and revered performer to our Walk of Fame family.”
Fiddy released his debut album, Get Rich Or Die Tryin, in 2003. Although he’s been more focused on his acting career in recent years, he pops up on a track every once in awhile. In August 2018, he collaborated with embattled rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, Casanova and Uncle Murda on the track “Get The Strap.”
Since then, he’s distanced himself from 6ix9ine who turned government informant shortly after his November 2018 arrest.
