50 Cent has announced he will embark on a UK arena tour this year in celebration of the 15th anniversary of his debut album Get Rich Or Die Tryin'.

Produced by Dr Dre and Eminem, Get Rich Or Die Tryin' sold 800,000 copies in its first week of release in 2003, featuring classic singles such as "In Da Club" and "21 Questions". It went onto become one of the biggest-selling rap albums in US history.

Fans are now being given the chance to relive its brilliance with a UK tour, which features three massive dates in Birmingham (18 September), London (20 September) and Manchester (21 September). Tickets are on sale 9 April.

Fiddy returns as Kanan in the hit Starz drama thriller Power for its fifth season. He's teased a "dark turn" for his character after sharing a photo of what appeared to show his character Kanan standing over an unconscious Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr) in the boot of his car.

Season 4 had barely ended before the network began teasing the next season of its most popular show, which is set to air on 1 July this year. A sixth season has also been commissioned.

He has previously called acting "the biggest escape possible" and noted: "[It] gives me the chance to break out of being me, to explore other parts of myself."

Recently 50 Cent was also forced to admit he isn't actually a bitcoin millionaire... he just went along with press reports because it sounded good.

He deleted an Instagram post where he appeared to confirm a TMZ story claiming he made millions after accepting bitcoin for his work on the 2014 album Animal Ambition.

In a bankruptcy filing he said he did not deny the reports because "the press coverage was favourable" and suggested he had made millions of dollars because of his good business decision.
