Born in the South Jamaica section of Queens, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson has lived in New York City all his life. Raised by his grandparents after his father ran out and his mother was shot when he was only eight. Growing up, the Queens rapper originally wanted to be a heavyweight boxer, but eventually fell back on rapping.
DJs had taken it upon themselves to release two Best of 50 Cent mix CDs, before he had even signed to a major label. 50 Cent hit the scene with "How To Rob An Industry Nigga" and he's been on a rampage ever since dealing with bootleggers, label back stabbing and other platinum selling artists trying to get at him physically. In 1999 his album Power of the Dollar, was heavily bootlegged and Trackmasters/Columbia never released it
But now it looks like rapper Curtis Jackson has settled his lawsuit against the engineering firm and has now listed his Connecticut mansion located at 50 Poplar Hill Dr, Farmington, $10,000,000 dollars. The property features a home theater, a billiards room, 52 rooms and even a nightclub. It was previously owned by Mike Tyson.
The listing describes the fabulously crazy crib as an "Exquisite sprawling compound designed for extended households. Grand lobby with dual circular staircases and elevator, a board room, spacious office..." The palatial pad sits on 17 acres of land and also includes an elaborate Baccarat crystal dining room chandelier, an outdoor sports court, an infinity edge pool and spacious hot tub tucked behind a waterfall in the rock grotto. The entire back of the house overlooks a beautiful Koi pond with a picture perfect guest house across the water. The gate house sets the stage for state-of-the-art security behind a gated entry.
Since buying the mansion, 50 Cent has reportedly spent up to $6 million renovating the house, including adding a helicopter pad.
