“We were just riding down the LIE and a Mack Truck – he said he lost control of the vehicle later to police officers because his load shifted,” 50 explained. “He tried to brake, his load shifted, and he lost control and he ran into the back of the truck. It did more damage to the Mack Truck than it did to my truck, ’cause I got a level six; it’s a bulletproof vehicle. It’s the same standard as what they’re moving Obama around in.”
Billboard magazine ranked 50 Cent as the number one rap artist of the 2000s, with his album, “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” selling more than 6 million copies in the United States, and “The Massacre” from 2005 topping 5 million.
