Power of the Dollar is an unreleased studio album by American hip hop recording artist 50 Cent. The album was originally set to be released as his major-label debut in 2000 by Columbia Records. However, the album's release was cancelled after Columbia discovered that 50 Cent was struck by nine bullets in a shooting that took place two months before the album was set to release. After the shooting, Columbia dropped 50 Cent from the label.[1] Subsequently, the album was heavily bootlegged.[2] There are currently no plans to release the album on compact disc.

The album features guest appearances from Destiny's Child, Noreaga, Dave Hollister, Bun B and The Madd Rapper. The album's production was handled by Trackmasters, Red Spyda, Sha Self, DJ Scratch and Erick Sermon, among other producers.

Singles[edit]

The lead single, 'Thug Love' featuring Destiny's Child, was released on September 21, 1999.[4] Days before 50 Cent was scheduled to film its music video, he was attacked by a gunman in the infamous shooting incident that left him with nine gunshot wounds and gave him his dimple scar; an event that 50 Cent often references in his lyrics.[5][6] While hospitalized, he signed a publishing deal with Columbia Records. However, he was dropped from the label after it was discovered that he had been shot.[7] The track, 'Ghetto Qu'ran (Forgive Me)', has been speculated to be the reason for the shooting.[8]

The third and final single, 'Your Life's on the Line', was released in 1999. The song was produced by Terrence Dudley, and was perceived as a diss song to Ja Rule, which would begin their highly publicised feud on records. 50 mocks Ja's famous catchphrase 'Murdaa!', on the chorus of the song, rapping 'Murdaa, I don't believe you/Murdaa, Fuck around and leave you/Murdaa, I don't believe you/Murda Murda, your life's on the line'. A music video for this song was released, which was also the only song with a music video of the whole album. The song would later be included as a bonus track on 50's officially released debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin'.

LeBron James’ depth and passion for music has always been an urban legend for a long time, but that became more than a legend after he A/R’d the latest 2Chainz album ‘Rap or Go To The League.’

But 2Chainz isn’t the only person in the music industry impressed by LeBron’s musical knowledge. 50 Cent, who began his career as a rapper but has evolved into a business and entertainment mogul, posted a photo on Instagram yesterday of he and Nas on the 25th anniversary of Nas’ iconic album ‘Illmatic.’ In the comments of the post, LeBron urged 50 to re-release the mixtape ‘Power of The Dollar,’ which is an underground classic.

“Re release “Power of A Dollar”! Straight flames!!!!!” James commented. 50 Cent was taken aback by LeBron’s music knowledge, saying “@kingjames Damn boy you real be knowing this music sh** for real.”

That, of course, became a part of 50 Cent’s legend. The mixtape included features from Destiny’s Child and Bun B. So if you see it show up on your favorite streaming platform, perhaps you’ll have LeBron to thank.
