50 Cent’s Final Lap Tour races into Hip Hop history, joining the elite $100M club.

On Wednesday (May 15), the latest numbers from Touring Data dropped on X (formerly known as Twitter), showing that Fif’s tour banked a whopping $104,975,322 in ticket sales. That chops up to a jaw-dropping 1,179,753 tickets sold — averaging out to around $88 per person.

Moreover, this milestone establishes that 50 Cent’s “The Final Lap” is only the fourth tour by a rapper to exceed $100 million in ticket sales in history. He joins the likes of Drake’s “Aubrey & the Three Migos,” “It’s All a Blur,” and Kendrick Lamar’s “The Big Steppers.”

Billed as a celebration tour for his 9x platinum album “GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN’ – 20 YEARS LATER,” the iconic New York rapper’s farewell tour launched in North America last July before journeying across Europe, Australia, and even making a stop in Saudi Arabia.

Over the course of its 103-date trek, the tour boasted a star-studded lineup including Busta Rhymes, Jeremih, Tony Yayo, and Uncle Murda, with surprise cameos sprinkled in from Hip Hop heavyweights including Eminem, Dreamille boss J. Cole, and pop sensation, Ed Sheeran.

Yayo, discussing his support for Fifty while on tour in an interview with VladTV earlier this year, placed the “21 Questions” lyricist on a pedestal, stating: “His merch is in the millions. He’s an icon. You can ask anyone — the people that ran the tour from Live Nation — they’ll tell you, ‘Your favorite rapper can’t do what 50 just did.’”

He continued, “Everybody’s coming there, of course, to work for 50, ’cause 50 cuts the budget. But when you think of everything that’s behind it, from production, road management, catering, dancers, f*ckin’ stewardess on the jet, pilots — everybody’s like one big team and 50 pays for everything.”
