Curtis James Jackson the Third aka [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]50 Cent[/lastfm] turns thirty-six today. Usually, when musicians have birthdays, we are totally nonchalant about the whole affair, but what you might not know is that Fiddy is lucky to celebrate this birthday today. In 2000, 50 Cent was shot nine times at close range by a 9mm handgun.
We’ve grown to love 50 Cent and are glad he is still around with us to pump out the rap dance-jams, so we’ve created this list of Top Ten Songs To Honor 50 Cent’s 36th Birthday.
10. “In Da Club”
Go Fiddy, it’s your birthday. We gon’ party ’cause it’s your birthday. We gon’ sip Bacardi because it’s your birthday.
Like, literally. It’s your birthday.
9. “Hate It Or Love It”
“Hate It Or Love It,” everything in 50 Cent’s jam-packed life has led him to the massive success he can safely celebrate today on his birthday.
8. “Window Shopper”
We’re not necessarily “window shoppers,” Curtis, but we bet you are going to get way more birthday presents than you need.
If you can’t fit, say, a sports car, in your garage, holler at us.
7. “Straight To The Bank”
When our grandma gives us FIDDY dollars for our birthday, we should take it “Straight To The Bank,” but instead we spend it on shoes and candy.
6. “I Get Money”
We get money too, Fiddy. Just…a lot less than you.
5. “21 Questions”
We’d still have love for you if it wasn’t your birthday, 50 Cent.
We love you like a fat kid loves birthday cake.
4. “Baby By Me” (featuring [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ne-Yo)[/lastfm]
Fiddy, has anyone ever come at you like, “I got a birthday present for you, Curtis. It’s warming up in the oven right now” and pointed at their belly?
Oh, well, can we be the first? Especially if we can be a millionaire.
3. “P.I.M.P” (featuring [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Snoop Dogg[/lastfm])
If there is anything we know about Fiddy, we should never doubt his pimpitude.
And, he is most likely revelin’ in some extra pimp juju on his special day.
Plus, he’s got the magic stick.
2. “Buzzin'” -[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Mann[/lastfm] featuring [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]50 Cent[/lastfm]
50 Cent probably feels like money because he’s “Buzzin'” and feeling “fly like a bee” on his big day.
1. “Candy Shop”
After he gets a bite of his birthday cake and eats it too (like a fat kid), 50 Cent will most certainly be pourin’ some sugar on some sweethearts while he takes them to the “Candy Shop.”
Can we come? Remember: Shoes and Candy!
