Houston-transplant rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is celebrating his win at the 2023 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s 20th annual Rodeo Uncorked! International Wine Competition.

He has won awards at the event for the last three years, including Reserve Grand Champion in 2021. But this year was special! He added Grand Champion Best of Show to his myriad of accolades for his adult beverage, Le Chemin du Roi Brut champagne.

According to the Houston Chronicle, his champagne was the best of 3,071 entries from 18 countries.

“What they say about the rodeo is that you have to treat the janitor like you treat the senator,” he said in his acceptance speech. “Everybody is somebody around here. It is exciting. I am in the right circle. These are the right people for me to engage with to continue to be great.”

In addition to showing his awards, including one for being the top donor, he also received several recognitions for his service in the city from elected officials.
