Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and Jackie Long attend the ceremony honoring Curtis "50 Cent" with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Jan. 30, 2020 in Hollywood, Calif. 

Just last week (Jan. 30), 50 Cent became the latest star to receive a literal star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

Since its orgin in the 1950s, millions of tourists walk the popular attraction daily to get a photo of their favorite celebrities' five-pointed honor.  The stretch of pink terrazzo and brass stars along Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, and its adjacent streets, are full of more than 2,500 celebrities who have contributed to film, music, television, theater and radio. 

Out of the thousands of Walk of Fame stars, did you know 50 Cent is only the ninth rapper in history to receive the honor? The number isn't too shocking, since the process to get a star is pretty laborious. Each celebrity must be nominated, apply for the star with a written statement and raise the required amount of money to receive the honor. 

See below for the nine rappers who have received the ultimate Hollywood "street cred."
