It looks like the hardest-working man in hip-hop won't be taking any days off this summer. 50 Cent is finishing his movie "Get Rich or Die Tryin' " within the next few days and will immediately head off to Anger Management 3.
While his summer tourmates have the luxury of enjoying some R&R during the tour's off days, 50 has booked several extra shows for himself and the G-Unit. 50's label has not confirmed his side dates yet but said they'll run through the end of August. (It should be noted that Eminem has one spot date, on July 9 at the House of Blues in Atlantic City, New Jersey.)
50 will miss the first two dates of the Anger Management outing on Thursday and Friday in Noblesville, Indiana, and Columbus, Ohio, respectively (see "Eminem, 50, Lil Jon, G-Unit, D12 Team Up For Anger Management 3 Tour This Summer"). Fif and the acts on his label — the G-Unit, Mobb Deep and M.O.P. — won't start their stint until Monday at the Tweeter Center in Tinley Park, Illinois. The very next night, a 50 Cent headlining concert is scheduled at the Target Center in Minneapolis. 50 has four more of his own dates in July and 13 in August. Early in September, the Anger Management Tour will head overseas.
At the end of June, 50 and Mobb collaborated for their first video since the Queensbridge duo signed to G-Unit Records (see "50 Cent Wants To Sign Mobb Deep, M.O.P. To G-Unit Records"). Under the direction of Jessy Terrero, the three hit Queens and New Jersey to shoot a video for 50's "Outta Control" remix, produced by Dr. Dre. The "Outta Control" remix is one of handful of new tracks that will appear on the reissue of The Massacre LP, due September 13.
