Product Description

THE TRUE STORY OF THE LEGEND THAT INSPIRED THE BIGGEST NAME IN RAP. At the height of New York's brutal crack cocaine epidemic, one man terrorized the city's most notorious gangsters. Armed with a bulletproof vest and an arsenal of weapons, he robbed, killed and extorted many of Brooklyn's biggest hustlers. A cold-blooded crook, he was the hood's version of Billy the Kid, vowing that -one day - he would, "Get Rich or Die Trying." Most knew him simply as 50 CENT or Fifty. The DVD The Original 50 CENT tells his story,The Original 50 Cent DVD is the premiere edition in the Infamous Times series and tells the story Kelvin "50 Cent" Martin, a cold-blooded criminal who, armed with an arsenal of weapons, robbed, killed and extorted many of Brooklyn's biggest hustlers at the height of New York's brutal crack cocaine epidemic and from whom the multi-platinum recording star, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson took the name. Hosted by acclaimed journalist, actor and convicted felon Bonz Malone, it is a docu-thriller, re-enacting scenes and featuring the multi-platinum artist 50 Cent, the daughter, girl friend and associates in crime of the Original 50 Cent as well as many hip hop protagonists who knew him best. In addition the DVD profiles the Brooklyn Bloods gang and the Brownsville section of Brooklyn; Sue's Rendezvous, a strip club made famous in rap music . . . fist fights, pit bull fights and gun fights that are all part of life in America's underbelly! , as well as an exclusive interview with Jimmy Henchmen and a profile on celebrity jewellers from New York's famed Diamond District. This explicit film goes behind the scenes typically associated with legendary hustlers to uncover the true tales of pain and betrayal that all too often destroy their lives and many times, find them dead or in jail.

i found this dvd really hard to follow - theres thumping music from beggining to end which gets really annoying. had to strain my ears to try and hear the people talk. other than that this dvd has alot of features. an intersting insight into that culture.

I Must Agree 16 Nov. 2006
By Keith A. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I am far from a fan of 50 cent but my friend lent me this DVD and told me I had to see this. First, 50 the rapper is only in this for about 5 minutes if that, so if you get this because you're a fan of his you'll probably be let down. He appears to say that he actually got his name from the real 50 Cent. This DVD is about the real 50 Cent from Brooklyn and it tells the whole story from his infamous stick-ups and even a brutal razor blade incident at a roller skating rink. This DVD is a nice documentary on 50 but like fellow reviewer G. Duenas pointed out the story is told in terribly bad taste. I think a lot of people like Curtis Jackson have been thirsty for a revealing of a real gansta from the black community to hold them on a level such as Al Capone or John Gotti.

Whatever people may think when they watch this they surely will get the feeling that the stories told by his friends including stars like Eric B. are being told like they're bragging. Also like G. Duenas said this cat was stealing and killing his own people so doing something like putting up a statue of him would be a disgrace. There are two other articles in this DVD newspaper, one about NY bloods and another about a club. The NY bloods actually get to you and though it is a small story it lets you know what going on. No lie, this DVD is really embarrassing when you sum it all up and hopefully not too people are paying attention to it cause I know the first time I watched it will be the last.
Infamous Times - The Original 50 Cent 23 Nov. 2008
By A. W. Adams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is the story of the man from which Curtis Jackson acquired is moniker, 50 Cent. It tells the real life drama of Kelvin Martin, New York's feared and respected 50 CENT, the original gangster.
Kelvin made a name for himself as a stick-up kid and all-around bad boy growing up around New York's Myrtle Avenue. In this documentary, there are interviews with people who were close to Kelvin Martin, including his daughter's mother and last love, Kelvin's daughter, his closest friends and rivals, people from his neighborhood, and rapper Curtis Jackson, know as today's 50 Cent.
Very good audio and video. Pictures and memories from his life before his death, his short military career, plus special features offered by Infamous Times. If you want to know the real story of the REAL 50 Cent, this is a must have!
50 17 Jun. 2005

I was expecting something different. For example when you watch a film on Carlo Gambino, or the movie "Paid in Full", or if you read the book "Monster" and "Sammy the Bull" you think to yourself, "WOW, that was amazing how these people operated above the law". This documentary didn't highlight anything intelligent or witty about this individual...And the portion about the NY BLOODS was kind of silly and embarrassing for blacks.

The only thing that I got from this movie was mixed thoughts about the rapper 50. How can he just take a nigga's name like that??? He really didn't seem to have a good explanation. Don't get me wrong he's a good rapper, but the film didn't help his image in my opinion. But who cares......
