For one reason or another, 50 Cent has found himself in a number of legal situations over the years. That means legal fees, and when the rapper learned just how much he’s paid in legal fees since coming to fame with Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ in 2003, the number shocked him.
In a recent interview with Brian J. Roberts (at 47:29 into the video above), 50 explained, “I spent over $23 million legal fees since I’ve had success in 2003. Over $23 million in legal fees.

His latest courtroom activity is a case over penis enhancement claims that is set to go to trial in 2023. Of the case, he commented, “Yeah my d*ck is a BIG DEAL.”
