Hip-hip icon 50 Cent will make an appearance at HQ2 Nightclub at Ocean Resort Casino on Friday, Aug. 17. The appearance coincides with the launch of his new champagne Le Chemin du Roi. 

One the most well-known hip-hop artists of our time, 50 Cent overcame many obstacles before signing with Eminem in 2002, which led to the release of his debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin'. He has since become a multi-dimensional artist, producer, actor and businessperson, who also starred in the semi-autobiographical film of the same name as the debut album. Presently he is involved in the critically acclaimed STARZ television series Power.

Joining 50 Cent on Friday is DJ Thomas Gold.
