50 Cent Graces The Cover Of Vibe Magazine’s Debut International Issue

April/May 2011 International Issue (on newsstands April 5th), is the first to cover the overseas music industry, with a look at trends and artists in the UK, Japan, Africa, Ibiza and everywhere in between. I haven’t been a 50 Cent fan since “Get Rich Or Die Tryin” and I don’t like his tactics but the man gets his money.

Triple threat rapper/actor/entrepreneur and global gangster 50 Cent covers the issue and talks God, growth, girls and keeping it global. “Spin the globe and stop it wherever you want and say 50 Cent and they know exactly who you’re talking about,” he says in “Is There a Heaven for a G?”

On the international front, the issue looks at how Akon kicked off the international craze, UK music makers Tinie Tempah, Jessie J and Mark Ronson; Morocco’s RedOne, and the ongoing influence of Jamaican icon Bob Marley. Also featured are interviews with Grammy’s Best New Artist Esperanza Spalding, rapper Lil B, Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt and WorldStarHipHop founder Q.
