Curtis James Jackson, színpadi nevén 50 Cent (ejtsd: fifti szent) (New York, South Jamaica, Queens, 1975. július 6. –) amerikai rapper. 2000-ben megjelent a Power Of The Dollar című albuma, amit csak kalózlemezként adtak ki. A 2003-as Get Rich Or Die Tryin' és a 2005-ös The Massacre sikeres lemez és platinalemezek lettek. 50 cent a South Jamaicában, Queens környékén, New Yorkban nőtt fel, apa nélkül. Anyja, Sabrina nevelte fel, aki 15 évesen szülte meg őt. Anyját 1983-ban meggyilkolták. Sabrina kokainkereskedő volt. 23 éves korában eszméletét vesztette, mert valaki gyógyszert tett az italába. Ott hagyták a lakásában, bezárták az ablakokat és gázt nyitottak rá. Anyja halála után Jackson a nagyszülei házába költözött, ahol már nyolc nagynénje és nagybácsija is élt. Így emlékezett vissza: "A nagymamám azt mondta nekem, 'Az anyád nem jön haza többé. Nem jön, hogy elvigyen. Mostantól itt élsz, velünk.' Ekkor kezdtem el alkalmazkodni az utcához." 50 Cent 12 évesen kezdte a drogdílerkedést az 1984-1990 közötti amerikai crack-láz idején. Miután kiszállt a kábítószerüzletből a zenei karrier kedvéért, 2000-ben meglőtték, 9 golyó találta el, de túlélte. A Guess Who's Back? c. albumának megjelenésekor az akkor már népszerű Eminem felfedezte őt, és elősegítette szerződését az Interscope Records-szal. Eminem és Dr. Dre (aki első sikeres alkotásainak producere volt) segítségével a világ legnépszerűbb rappereinek egyikévé vált. 2003-ban megalapította a G-Unit Records lemezkiadót, ami számos sikeres rapperrel működött együtt a későbbiekben, köztük Young Buck, Lloyd Banks és Tony Yayo lemezeit adta ki. 50 Cent és néhány más rapper közt rossz vagy rossz volt a viszony, ezek közt van Ja Rule, Rick Ross, Game és Fat Joe. Színészi karriert is épített, 2005-ben szerepelt a félig-meddig önéletrajzi Get Rich or Die Tryin c. filmben, az iraki háborúról szóló Home of the Brave c. filmben 2006-ban és a Righteous Kill-ben 2008-ban.
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" 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. Supposedly, Trackmasters weren't comfortable with him being caught up in the streets and getting shot three days before filming the video for "Thug Love," (with Destiny's Child) -- his first single. 50 was shot three times that night, two shots hitting him in the head, the bullet that struck his face he carries as a reminder of what happened. That event led to the fall out with Columbia and negotiating his release from their grasps. He still showed love and rhymed over a Trackmasters produced remix of "I'm Gonna Be Alright" on J-Lo's latest album, but rivals at Murder Inc. had 50 cut from the track which could have launched the rapper. This all changed in one night when Eminem said on a radio show that "50 Cent is definitely my favorite rapper right now, he's the only one keeping it real." The very next day a bidding war started on 50, ending when 50 signed to Eminem's very own label Shady/Aftermath. 50 Cent's fame has exploded, being produced by Dr. Dre and Eminem and finally making his debut album "Get rich or Die Tryin'." 50 has full access and advantage of the streets through mix-tapes; that's his forum because he controls it. 50 Cent is the most anticipated artist of 2003. It's well deserved because he's "been patiently waiting."
Forest Steven Whitaker (Longview, 1961. július 15. –) Oscar-díjas amerikai színész, rendező és producer. Legnagyobb szakmai sikerét a 2006-ban bemutatott Az utolsó skót király című filmjével érte el, amelyben Uganda hírhedt diktátorát, Idi Amin Dadát alakította. Alakításért nemcsak a legjobb férfi főszereplőnek járó Oscar-díjat érdemelte ki, hanem Golden Globe-díjjal és BAFTA-díjjal is jutalmazták. Ő az Oscar történetének negyedik olyan afroamerikai színésze, aki a legjobb férfi főszereplőként kapta meg az Oscar-díjat, rajta kívül eddig csak Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington és Jamie Foxx vehette át díjat ebben a kategóriában. További emlékezetes filmjei a Bird - Charlie Parker élete és a Szellemkutya című alkotások. Visszatérő szerepet kapott a The Shield című amerikai sorozatban, amiben Jon Kavanaugh hadnagyot játssza el.
Forest Steven Whitaker has packaged a king-size talent into his hulking 6' 2", 220 lb. frame. He won an Academy Award for his performance as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in the 2006 film The Last King of Scotland, and has also won a Golden Globe and a BAFTA. He is the fourth African-American male to win an Academy Award for Best Actor, following in the footsteps of Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington, and Jamie Foxx. Whitaker was born on July 15, 1961 in Longview, Texas, to Laura Francis (Smith), a special education teacher, and Forest Steven Whitaker, an insurance salesman. His family moved to South Central Los Angeles in 1965. The athletically-inclined Whitaker initially found his way into college via a football scholarship. Later, however, he transferred to USC where he set his concentration on music and earned two more scholarships training as an operatic tenor. This, in turn, led to another scholarship at Berkeley with a renewed focus on acting and the performing stage. Whitaker made his film debut at the age of 21 in the raucous comedy _Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)_ (qv) wherein he played, quite naturally, a footballer. He went on to play another sports-oriented student, a wrestler, in his second film _Vision Quest (1985)_ (qv). He gained experience on TV as well with featured spots on such varied shows as _"Diff'rent Strokes" (1978)_ (qv) and _"Cagney & Lacey" (1981)_ (qv), not to mention the TV-movie Civil War epic _"North and South" (1985)_ (qv) and its sequel. The movie that truly put him on the map was _The Color of Money (1986)_ (qv). His one big scene as a naive-looking pool player who out-hustles 'Paul Newman (I)' (qv)'s Fast Eddie Felson was pure electricity. This led to more visible roles in the "A" class films _Platoon (1986)_ (qv), _Stakeout (1987)_ (qv), and _Good Morning, Vietnam (1987)_ (qv), which culminated in his breakout lead portrayal of the tortured jazz icon 'Charlie "Bird" Parker' in 'Clint Eastwood' (qv)'s passion project _Bird (1988)_ (qv), for which Whitaker won the Cannes Film Festival award for "best actor" and a Golden Globe nomination. Whitaker continued to work with a number of well-known directors throughout the 1990s. While his "gentle giant" characters typically display innocence, indecision, and timidity along with a strong underlying humanity, he has certainly not shied away from the edgier, darker corners of life as his occasional hitmen and other menacing streetwise types can attest. Although in only the first section of the film, he was memorable as the IRA-captured British soldier whose bizarre relationship with a mysterious femme fatale serves as the catalyst for the critically-lauded drama _The Crying Game (1992)_ (qv). Always a willing participant to push the envelope, he's gone on to enhance a number of lesser films. Among those was his plastic surgeon in _Johnny Handsome (1989)_ (qv), gay clothing designer in 'Robert Altman (I)' (qv)'s _Pręt-ŕ-Porter (1994)_ (qv), alien hunter in _Species (1995)_ (qv), absentee father confronted by his estranged son in _Smoke (1995)_ (qv), and Mafia hitman who models himself after the samurai warrior in _Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999)_ (qv), among many others. As would be expected, he's also had his share of epic-sized bombs, notoriously the 'L. Ron Hubbard' (qv) sci-fi disaster _Battlefield Earth (2000)_ (qv). On the TV front, he was the consulting producer and host of a revamped 'Rod Serling' (qv)'s cult series classic _"The Twilight Zone" (2002)_ (qv), which lasted a disappointing one season. In the early 1990s, Whitaker widened his horizons to include producing/directing and has since gained respect behind the camera as well. He started things off co-producing the violent gangster film _A Rage in Harlem (1991)_ (qv), in which he co-starred with 'Gregory Hines (I)' (qv) and 'Robin Givens' (qv), and then made his successful directorial debut with the soulful _Waiting to Exhale (1995)_ (qv), showcasing a legion of distaff black stars. He also directed co-star 'Whitney Houston (I)' (qv)'s music video of the movie's theme song ("Shoop Shoop"). He also helmed the fluffy romantic comedy _First Daughter (2004)_ (qv) with 'Katie Holmes (I)' (qv) and 'Michael Keaton' (qv). Whitaker also served as an executive producer on First Daughter. He had previously executive produced several made-for-television movies, most notably the 2002 Emmy-award winning Door to Door, starring 'William H. Macy' (qv). He produced these projects through his production company, Spirit Dance Entertainment, which he shut down in 2005 to concentrate on his acting career. In 2002, he co-starred in Joel Schumacher's thriller, Phone Booth, with Kiefer Sutherland and Colin Farrell. That year, he also co-starred with Jodie Foster in Panic Room. Whitaker's greatest success to date is the 2006 film, The Last King of Scotland. His performance earned him the 2007 Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, For that same role, he also received the Golden Globe Award, the Screen Actors Guild Award, a BAFTA Award, and many critical accolades. He has also received several other honors. In September 2006, the 10th Annual Hollywood Film Festival presented him with its "Hollywood Actor of the Year Award," He was also honored at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival 2007, receiving the American Riviera Award. Previously, in 2005, the Deauville Festival of American Film paid tribute to him. In 2007, Forest Whitaker won the Cinema for Peace Award 2007. In 2007, Whitaker co-starred in The Great Debaters with fellow Oscar winner 'Denzel Washington' (qv), and in 2008, Whitaker played opposite 'Keanu Reeves' (qv) in Street Kings and 'Dennis Quaid' (qv) in Vantage Point. In 2009, Forest co-starred in the Warner Bros. film "Where the Wild Things Are," directed by Spike Jonze, which was a mix of live-action, animation and puppetry as an adaptation of the Maurice Sendak classic children's book. Around the same time, he also starred in "Repossession Mambo", with Jude Law, "Hurricane Season", "Winged Creatures", and "Powder Blue". He appeared in the Olivier Dahan film "My Own Love Song", opposite Renee Zellweger, and was part of the Africa Movie Academy Awards in 2009, in Nigeria. He is married to former model 'Keisha Whitaker' (qv) and has three children by her. His younger brothers 'Kenn Whitaker' (qv) and 'Damon Whitaker' (qv) are both actors as well. Forest was given a star on the Hollywood Walk in April of 2007. In November 2007, Whitaker was the creative mind behind DEWmocracy.com, a website that let people decide the next flavor of Mountain Dew in a "People's Dew" poll. He directed a short film and created the characters for the video game. Whitaker has done extensive humanitarian work, he has been involved with organizations like, Penny Lane, an organization that provides assistance to abused teenagers. PETA and Farm Sanctuary, organizations that protect animals' rights. Close friends with Neurosurgeon Dr. Keith Black, Forest has helped raise awareness and funds for Dr. Blacks research. During the last couple of years, he has become a spokesperson for Hope North Ugandan orphanage and Human Rights Watch. In the year 2001 Forest received a Humanitas Prize. He was recently honored by The City of Los Angeles with the Hope of Los Angeles Award. And his entire clan received the LA BEST Family Focus Award. Last year he joined forces with "Idol Gives Back" and "Malaria No More"; he has become a GQ Ambassador supporting and fundraising for Hope North. He was a Surrogate for Barrack Obama's campaign supporting him across the United States. Whitaker's multimedia company, Spirit Dance Entertainment, includes film, television and music production. He works closely with a number of charitable organizations, giving back to his community by serving as an Honorary Board Members for Penny Lane, an organization that provides assistance to abused teenagers, the Human Rights Watch and The Hope North organization.
