Get rich or die tryin'

When I first seen this I loved Curtis "50cent" Jackson and I listened to his music at the time. This was a great story but I do not recommend for anyone under the age 18!

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
