At the end of the day, what will you hang on to?

Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, one of the biggest and most popular stars in hip-hop, is the charismatic driving force behind Get rich or die trying. A hard-hitting drama directed by six-time Oscar nominee Jim Sheridan. The story is about an orphaned street kid who makes his mark in the drug trade, but finally dares to leave the violence behind and become the rap artist, he was meant to be. Marcus (Jackson) has always known he was going to be a rapper, but when his mother is murdered, he turns to dealing/hustling drugs to pay the rent. As his world spirals out of control, he begins to apply the same manic intensity to his writing as he does to dealing, he has to write down his words to stay sane. For years, he endures this living hell until a tragedy that nearly kills him gets Marcus to change his life.
