ABSTRACT
The article features Curtis Jackson, best known as rapper 50 Cent. He bought a Chevy Suburban in 2005 because the safe-room on wheels is both a marketing prop and a necessary defense system for him. 50 Cent parlayed his tragic accident and troubling résumé of street credibility into a thriving business. He earned $41 million in 2005, and ranked number 8 on the 2006 Forbes Celebrity 100 list.
