According to Vocal, 50 Cent treated himself in 1995 when he spent $500,000 on his very own Ferrari F50. However, nowadays that would be considered a good deal.

Vocal claims that 50 Cent is also the owner of a Parker Brothers Concept car, which rides on three wheels rather than four.

Forbes reports that, soon after making it big on the music scene, 50 Cent treated his grandmother by purchasing her a Mercedes-Benz C240. 50 was primarily raised by his grandmother after his mother died when he was only 8, so this was a good way to give back to the woman who raised him.
