Superstar rapper 50 CENT earned an astonishing $57 million (GBP30 million) in 2004.

The staggering sum is the result of record sales, endorsement deals and the sensational success of his newly launched clothing company.

He was helped by the success of debut LP GET RICH DIE TRYING, and was then paid $19 million (GBP10 million) by REEBOK alone for the G-Unit footwear range he designed for the company.

Cent earned a further $29 million (GBP15 million) from sales of G-Unit clothing, which he runs with G-Unit collaborators Lloyd Banks and Young Buck.
