50 CENT BEST LYRIC

In ten short years, 50 Cent has gone from being a brash rapper famous for having survived nine bullet wounds and hanging upside down in a lab to a business mogul (he also dated Chelsea Handler along the way).

The Bronx-born rapper sat down with Details magazine to reflect on his decade of success and revealed his favorite lyric from the 50 Cent canon: "Go shorty, it's your birthday."

That line, from the intro of "In Da Club," made him a superstar. The single sat atop the Billboard Hot 100 for nine weeks until it was ousted by Sean Paul's "Get Busy."

Though 50's new music has not had the impact of his earlier releases, he has made a veritable killing in the business world as beverage ventures with Vitamin Water and Street King continue to pay dividends. The rapper has also committed to join the fight against global hunger.

50 Cent's relationship with Robert DeNiro also came up in the Details interview. "We talk about business," 50 said. "I built the company that financed 'Freelancers.' So, he's working for me, but it's a favor, actually -- financially, he doesn't need what we're offering, it's a creative choice. When you pick a project that an Academy Award-winning actor thinks is worthy of working on, it just says that you're going in the right direction."

For more, head over to Details. Below, a few other lyrics which we humbly submit as "as good or better than" the one the G-Unit chief selected. Add yours in the comments.

  • "I write my life you write what you see in gangster movies"
  • "I love you like a fat kid loves cake"
  • "When I die, they'll read this and say a genius wrote it"
  • "Hate a liar more than I hate a thief / A thief is only after my salary a liar is after my reality"
  • "Have a baby by me, be a millionaire"
