Power of the Dollar is an unreleased, but heavily bootlegged, album from rapper 50 Cent. It was supposed to be his debut album with Columbia Records.[1]


The album is often considered 50 Cent's "purest" hip-hop album, as he was still heavily involved in the criminal scene during its recording.

The album's underground hit, "How to Rob", mentions many prominent figures in the music industry, and comically explains how he would rob them. Several rappers including Jay-Z, Big Pun, DMX, and Wu-Tang Clan affiliates The American Cream Team replied to the song.[2] The track was intended to be released with "Thug Love" featuring Destiny's Child, but two days before he was scheduled to film the "Thug Love" video, 50 Cent was shot and had to be confined to a hospital due to his injuries.[3] The track, "Ghetto Qu'ran", has been speculated to be the reason for his shooting.[4]

While in hospital, 50 Cent signed a publishing deal with Columbia Records. However, he was later dropped from the label after they found out he had been shot.[5]
