Superstar Rapper To Perform In Kyiv

KIEV, Ukraine -- This summer concert season is certainly full of surprises. If only a short time ago the appearance of a real Western musical star sounded like an extraordinary event here, it certainly won’t anymore.


Curtis James Jackson (aka 50 Cent)

Not after The Black Eyed Peas and Jamiroquai announced their concerts, and The Cardigans promised to give an open-air show on Europe Day – and all this during over little more than a month.

Frankly, I didn’t expect any more surprises of this kind, but then I went to music.com.ua this weekend and felt my jaw drop. 50 Cent is coming? Are you kidding? I really found it hard to believe.

Please, don’t get me wrong – it was not because I thought he was too big and great to come to Kyiv, but it just seemed so hard to imagine someone like that hitting Kyiv’s grounds with his million-dollar sneakers.

Just imagine him strolling along Khreshchatyk – all showy and shiny with all those golden chains, diamonds, a bullet in the head and an indispensable gang of fellow rappers. It just didn't seem to make sense. And yet he’s coming June 3 .

As living proof of the wonder of show biz, Curtis James Jackson (aka 50 Cent), has jumped to fame in no time at all. After being discovered by Dr. Dre and Eminem, he released his debut album “Get Rich or Die Trying” in 2003 and sold 90,000 copies of it in the first week.

His hits such as “Candy Shop” and “In Da Club”, are known even to those who have no interest for rap at all (such as myself). Since then 50 Cent has released his second successful album,

“The Massacre,” and has also become an actor, starring in a movie based on his own biography – much like his patron Eminem. In fact, he’s already filming another movie, “Home of the Brave.”

Unlike the other American hitmakers coming to Kyiv this summer, 50 Cent will perform not at Palats Sportu, but at the Arena entertainment center – and he certainly will look much more at home there, doing his rap for an audiences that – though perhaps not quite as “gold-plated” as himself – are nonetheless ready to pay $100 for the cheapest tickets available.

Apparently, they've taken his famous motto “get rich or die trying” much to heart.
