Hip hop mega-star 50 Cent joined us during SXSW Music for an exclusive interview covering the breadth of his career. Hardknock.tv's Nick Huff Barili delved into 50's life, starting with the tenth-anniversary look back at the legendary "Get Rich Or Die Trying," a sales success 50 doubts he or anyone will be able to replicate in today's music industry. 50 explained his loyalty and desire to provide for the artists he takes under his wing with G-Unit, the evolution of hip hop metaphors over the last decade, and how he balances his busy life outside of making music.
