Typo on 2002–06: Rise to fame" section[edit]

Error is on following sentence:

"Rolling Stone noted its "dark synth grooves, buzzy keyboards and a persistently funky bounce", with >>Jakscon<< complementing the production in "an unflappable, laid-back flow"."

Semi-protected edit request on 30 May 2017[edit]

Could somebody change "Jakscon" to "Jackson" within 50_Cent#2002.E2.80.9306:_Rise_to_fame in the second sentence in the second paragraph? (talk) 01:06, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

Non-neutral POV in Business Ventures[edit]

The business ventures section was obviously written by a publicist or representative of 50 Cent. It also contains a lot of vague and non-factual claims. (talk) 14:38, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Verifiability of 2015 net worth[edit]

How can this article state "he was the fifth-richest figure in American hip hop in 2015, with an estimated net worth of $155 million" — and then three sentences later, inform the reader that "on July 13, 2015, Jackson filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Connecticut with a debt of $32,509,549.91"??

Those two data points don't reconcile, thus the verifiability of each needs to be enforced to determine which net worth is false.

Furthermore, it makes perfect sense that in the "Wealth" section, the phrase "net worth" should be linked to its Wikipedia page so people can go learn what that really means. (talk) 23:37, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
