When Robert Greene published "The 48 Laws of Power" he had no idea the book would become a mega cult classic—and not just amongst business types. Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson credits Greene's work with his success. But the single most defining moment in 50's life, he says, is when he completely let go of his fear. Fear nothing, and you shall succeed. This is the basic tenant of "The 50th Law," the groundbreaking collaboration between 50 and Greene.
In an era where young people are less likely to be in church and more likely to be influenced by hustlers, rappers and movies like Scarface, things have changed. The 48 Laws of Power by author Robert Greene, has emerged as the hustlers Bible in hip hop. I have personally met people in the rap game that can quote Robert Green's Laws by number, more readily than they can quote any other book intended to refine their life. Any independent would be music mogul without The 48 Laws of Power is a pawn of those around him.
