Get Rich or Die Tryin' is the debut studio album by American rapper 50 Cent, released in 2003 on Aftermath Entertainment under a joint venture with Shady Records and distributed by Interscope Records. Its initially planned release date was pushed seven days ahead due to heavy bootlegging and Internet leakage. The album featured production from Dr. Dre and Eminem, and featured guest appearances by Eminem and G-Unit members Young Buck, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo.

The album debuted at #1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling 872,000 copies in its first week. It generated four singles, including the number one hits "In da Club" and "21 Questions", and the international hit "P.I.M.P.". Upon its release, the album received positive reviews from music critics and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album, losing to OutKast's Speakerboxxx/The Love Below at the 46th Grammy Awards. To date, it has sold over 15 million copies.
