MTV Networks and Footlocker are delighted to present the 50 Cent and G-Unit New Zealand Tour 2008.

Since its worldwide release in September 2007, 50 Cent's highly anticipated new album "Curtis" continues his phenomenal rise to the top. As hard and brutally honest, yet musical and entertaining, as his first two albums, 50 Cent (aka Curtis Jackson) tells it like it is on "Curtis" and makes it pay as he heads "Straight to the Bank," the title of the album's first single.

50’s official debut album, 2003’s “Get Rich Or Die Tryin’”, was the biggest seller of 2003 and is currently ten times platinum worldwide. His second album, 2005’s “The Massacre”, was the second biggest-selling album of the year and is now seven times platinum worldwide. Since he first dropped his bombs on the music world, 50 has earned 11 Grammy nominations, from Best New Artist to Best Rap Album for each of his first two efforts. Attesting to his popularity with Australian fans, “Get Rich Or Die Tryin’” hit #1 in Australia as did “The Massacre”. The rapper has worked with some of the most highly regarded members of the hip-hop community including Eminem, who was instrumental in launching 50’s career into the mainstream, Justin Timberlake, Mary J Blige, Akon, Timberland and Dr. Dre.

Opening for 50 Cent will be local act, Phinesse, who have made a name for themselves by embracing the more sophisticated side of urban music. Their debut smash single, 'I Can't Wait', from their forthcoming album, "Audio Therapy", has been receiving rave reviews, and the hype surrounding this talented duo can only get bigger when they gain a whole new group of fans as support act for 50.
