VANCOUVER — The BC Lions have announced Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson will perform on Save-On-Foods Field at BC Place for Concert Kickoff on Saturday, June 15 when the team battles the Calgary Stampeders.

Recognized as one of the most talented and prolific artists of his time, 50 Cent skyrocketed to stardom with his 2003 album ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin.’ On the strength of popular singles ‘In Da Club’ and ‘Wangsta,’ the gritty debut album exceeded 9 million units sold and won the Juno Award for International Album of the Year.

A two-time winner of the Billboard Top Artist Award (2003, 2005), 50 Cent also took home the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance along with Dr. Dre and Eminem.

50 Cent’s resume at sporting events is also vastly impressive as he helped headline an unforgettable halftime show at Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar, which awarded him an Emmy.

More recently, 50 Cent performed in Vancouver at a sold out Rogers Arena last September as part of his Final Lap tour.
