The Luckiest Man Alive

I watched a lot of football this weekend, and in almost every post-game interview the athletes mentioned how lucky they were. Maybe it was just that their teams were better.

I also watched the Grammy nomination ceremony last week. Again, the "artists" nominated frequently mentioned how lucky they were. They were at least semi-correct since most of them didn't actually deserve nominations.

I hate when people say that he/she is the luckiest person in the world. They are full of S. There is only one man that can claim that title: 50 Cent

Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson is clearly the luckiest man to ever walk the earth. Here's why.

He got shot 9 times and didn't die.

He was able to work with Dr. Dre and Eminem to help launch a hugely successful rap career.

His motto was Get Rich or Die Tryin': He got rich.

He worked with a company called Glaceau to create a Vitamin Water drink called Formula 50: It is estimated he made $100 million when Coca-Cola later purchased the company.

He has starred in movies, published books, released a fragrance and a body spray, has his own condom line, had his own reality show, and has provided his voice for two video games inspired by his life.

So next time you think you're the luckiest person on earth. Think again. Think 50
