Champions of league 1, Monaco, have reached out to rapper 50cent to perform for the club and thousands of their fans this weekend. The club has successfully overtaken the mantle from PSG who have monopolized the league over the past few years.
Monaco have been breath-taking all season and came close in reaching the Champions League’s semi-finals, only for Juventus to end their dream.
“The American star will come to celebrate the excellent results of Falcao’s teammates this Sunday in the Palace Square in the Principality,” reads a statement on Monaco’s official club website.
50 cent, born Curtis Jackson James has sold over 30 million albums worldwide and won several awards, including a Grammy Award, thirteen Billboard Music Awards, six World Music Awards, three American Music Awards and four BET Awards.
He has pursued an acting career, appearing in the semi-autobiographical film Get Rich or Die Tryin’ (2005), the Iraq War film Home of the Brave (2006) and Righteous Kill (2008). 50 Cent was ranked the sixth-best artist of the 2000s and the third-best rapper (behind Eminem and Nelly) by Billboard. Rolling Stone consider Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and “In Da Club” to be in their lists of “100 Best albums of the 2000s” and “100 Best songs of the 2000s” at numbers 37 and 13.
