50 Cent Has Received A Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson has been given a star on the infamous Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Only the who's who of tinseltown are usually allowed to have a star, but after decades in the game, it's fair to say the artist deserves it.

He's been recognised for his recording accolades, of which he has many, but let's not forget he's also an entrepreneur, actor, investor, and television producer.

But when you're getting inducted into a very exclusive club, you want some very exclusive people there with you, surely?

Well, 50 Cent had none other than Eminem and Dr Dre there to welcome him into the Hollywood Walk of Fame Club.

Eminem told the crowd that had gathered for the big show: "Of all the things I don't remember about 2002, I have a clear memory of the first time I met 50.

"The charisma and the personality - everything matched the intensity of his music.

"Dre and me knew that if it was going to work on us, it was going to work on the rest of world. I'm glad we trusted our instincts.

"I'm here today because he's not only a business partner to me, this is one of the best friends I've known in the world," said Eminem. "He's always been there when I needed him."

Fiddy had some nice words to say about Eminem and Dr Dre, whom he has collaborated with on numerous projects over the course of his career.

"I don't think my career would have been what it was without [their] support," he said.

While it seems like his rapping career is over for now, his TV producing skills are coming into full strength with the wildly popular Power.

He, along with Courtney Kemp executive, produce the show and have dabbled in the idea of a few spin-offs.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association's press tour, Kemp said: "We have alluded previously to various spin-offs, prequels, and other expansions of the Power universe.

"Today we are pleased to announce that we are in pre-production on the first of what we know will be a collection of series inspired by the dynamic world of Power. Power Book II: Ghost will continue the journey of some of Power's most controversial characters."

The spin-off will centre on Blige's character, but details on who she will be are being kept strictly under wraps.

But the boss of Starz, the network that distributes Power, says the spin-offs will be better than the original series.

Starz president and CEO Jeffrey Hirsch said: "There's a lot of rich characters that we can choose to pull out."

When pressed on the characters that will be involved, Hirsch declined to comment, adding that then 'you'd know who does and doesn't die' in the last season.
