50 Cent Reveals Who Shortened His Nickname To Fiddy

Rapper Curtis Jackson broke onto the music scene as 50 Cent back in 2003, but before long, people started calling him Fiddy. And you'll never guess who started the new nickname.

"Sharon Osbourne gave me that nickname," the 'Den of Thieves' star told Stephen Colbert earlier this week. "Fiddy Cent — that's how she says it. And it's been that ever since." 

He also offered his take on fellow Queens native Donald Trump, and taught Colbert how to beef with other talk show hosts — even though Stephen objected to the crash course. "I don't want Fallon to bust a cap in my ass," he said. Check it out above.


No matter how you partake, the timeline of a nice cannabis session is often the same.

Can we see some ID please?
