50 Cent comes to Ibiza

2011 must surely go down as the year hip hop finally made an impression on the island. Curtis James Jackson III plays at Amnesia on August 12th.

Replacing Duran Duran, who had to withdraw after Simon Le Bon got a dodgy throat, is East Coast rapper 50 Cent, without doubt one of the most commercially succesful musicians of the last decade. Bursting onto the scene in 2003 with the track 'In Da Club', this protégée of Dr.Dre and Eminem has since gone onto sell 30 million albums worldwide and associations with his G-Unit Records label include artists like The Game, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck.

A slightly different style from Duran Duran of course, 'Fiddy' is the latest in a string of hip hop and RnB artists to have hit Ibiza this summer, the biggest being Snoop Dogg of course, but also De La Soul, Usher, Ludacris and P.Diddy has made his annual jaunt to the island too. Tickets on sale now.
