50 Cent to Perform Get Rich or Die Tryin’ in its Entirety at SXSW

Jay-Z isn’t the only hip-hop superstar slated to perform at this year’s South by Southwest festival. 50 Cent has been revealed as the headliner for the Shady 2.0 showcase, taking place March 16th at the Austin Music Hall.

50 Cent is scheduled to run through all 19 tracks off of his memorable debut album, Get Rich or Die Tryin’, marking the first time the masterpiece will be performed live in its entirety, during his performance. Get Rich or Die Tryin’ hit the 8X platinum mark and received a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album. It also garnered five chart-topping hit singles; “Wanksta,” “In da Club,” “Many Men,” “21 Questions,” featuring Nate Dogg, and “P.I.M.P.”

The Shady 2.0 showcase will also feature several other notable MCs, including fellow Queens native Action Bronson, 2012 XXL Freshman Don Trip, ScHoolBoy Q, 2011 XXL Freshman Big K.R.I.T., Shady Records signees Yelawolf (2011 XXL Freshman) and rap super-group, Slaughterhouse.

Eminem is not listed as a performer for the event yet, but, concertgoers may get a nice surprise if Marshall Mathers decides to make an impromptu performance, which seems likely.
