A former drug dealer who was stabbed and shot nine times shortly after the release of his 2000 debut album, 50 Cent - real name Curtis Jackson - lived the things most rappers write about. He also inspired the 2005 movie "Get Rich or Die Tryin'," headlined two video games and became one of the most talked-about figures in rap, thanks to feuds with other performers. That's not to mention his multi-million record sales or numerous rap and pop cross-over hits. The rapper's "Invitation Tour" brings him and surprise guest acts to mid-size venues in support of his latest album, "Black Magic."

50 Cent performs 6 p.m. Monday at Celebrity Theatre, 440 N. 32nd St., Phoenix. $48-$100. (602) 267-1600 or www.celebritytheatre.com.
