Pete Kravchenko was in Kyiv when Galychany had their concert. Listen to his story and write lists of the things he thought were good or bad.
Do you remember Galychany, our local band? I saw them at a concert in Party Club the other day. The concert hall wasn’t much good: the stage was too high, the sound was awful and there weren’t enough loudspeakers. (They only had one microphone!)
The band was quite good, though. The lead singer is great, he’s got a good voice, and the lead guitarist is fantastic. (I think I know her but I couldn’t see properly because there weren’t enough lights. ) They’re going to be a very good band but they need a good manager. The organization was really bad. There were about 200 people there, though, and they seemed to enjoy it.

• His rap group:
• His favourite musician:
50 Cent, one of the most popular stars in Hip-Hop, has a very unusual biography. His real name is Curtis Jackson. He says it’s a metaphor for change and also the name of a notorious Brooklyn drug dealer.
Curtis was born in a New York ghetto in 1976 and never knew his father. His mother, Sabrina Jackson, a drug dealer, was murdered when he was only 8 years old. The boy went to live with his grandparents, and at the age of 12 entered the “family business”: he started selling drugs on the street. He was arrested at the age of 18, which is when he started thinking about a career in music.
His big opportunity came when he met Jam Master Jay. “Jay taught me how to write and make rap records. He made me want to really rap and do this”, says 50 Cent.
In 1999, 50 Cent signed a contract with Columbia Records, but then, in 2000, someone tried to murder him. He was shot 9 times — in the face, hand, chest and both legs. Luckily, he survived, but couldn’t sing for months. His career almost died, because Columbia Records dropped him.
Then Eminem, his favourite musician, heard his songs and decided to help him. On a Los Angeles radio show, Em declared 50 Cent his favourite rapper. In 2002 Curtis appeared in Eminem’s film, 8 Mile, and in 2003 his first album Get Rich or Die Tryin was released. It became one of the biggest success stories of any genre, not just Hip-Hop.
With his rap group The G-unit he made his next album, The Massacre, which went straight to the top of the charts and sold more than seven million copies worldwide.
In 2005 50 Cent made his first film, 50 Cent. Just like Eminem in 8 Mile, Curtis stars in the film as himself, telling his life story.
He’s fond of boxing and writing comedies, and he say he’s got more stories to tell.
