50 Cent To Remove Tattoos, Lose Weight For Movie Role

Fif plans to shed the ink plus 50 pounds for his latest flick "Things Fall Apart."

50 Cent is making moves to further his career in the film industry. According to the New York Post, the rapper is making a serious transition into acting, and has committed to removing some of his tattoos for an upcoming role in the film Things Fall Apart, which he co-wrote and produced. In addition Fif will lose 50 pounds for the on-screen feature.

"[50 Cent] is on tour in Europe and has already started losing the weight and is excited to begin production in May," a source told the Post. "He's also having tattoos removed from his right arm, which will save him time in the makeup chair."

Fif made his Hollywood debut in the 2005 semi-autobiography Get Rich or Die Tryin, and has since lent his voice to The Simpsons, and has made guest appearances on HBO's Entourage as well as the crime-thriller Righteous Kill.

    You stupid mofo's knocking his talent in films, I've watched his movies, nothings wrong with his acting - if your comparing him to people who have been in the movie industry since they were 16 he might not look 2 crash hot but hes doing good for the level hes at. If you dont like his movies or music dont watch/listen to it - we dont need dumb ass retards dissing him when he is definately making a ton more money and is actually known by people. If your judging people you barely even know have a closer look at yourself because your clearly the one with issues. G'Luck on the Movie 50. peaCe.

  • ChiTownBalla2010

    You guys seriously have no life i mean really do you guys hate 50 cent that much. Unless you wasting your money on it than shut up talking about it. Cause regardless if you praise or hate the man he still smarter than all you including me cause he making more money than all of us put together while we sitting here discussing his career and shortcomings. And I am a 50 cent fan just damn let it go homies.

  • c.webb

    anyway he's making millions off of every money he ever puts out ,back to 2005 get rich or die trying the movie brought money to the dude ans so are the other movies,nigga got his life he can do whatever the fuck he wants with,why don't you haters go to live for couple years with perez hilton to be fucked from the second door ,get off fif's back please.

  • shaniaS

    Really? well thats good for them... Talking about movies, Im not sure if they do it this time but since music is interrelated to filming, I wish the best for them.It seems like Warner Brothers is going to need to hire some new safety riggers and/or pyrotechnicians, and maybe some payday loans to build a new set for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Possibly the film and its cast are cursed. Maybe someone cast a spell on the picture – maybe it was the Narnia people, or Twilight devotees. Oh well, at least nobody seems to have been hurt severely, and nothing more than one set damaged for the moment. I have a feeling I am going to get dragged to that movie once it hits theaters.

    50 das a stupid move,doesn't dat shit leave scars?

  • ???? still best rite now!!!

    This nigga is the worst rapper actor of em' all! he ruined that Pacino & Deniro flick!

  • JOSEM

    50 Cent is finally realizing that the whole gangster persona he portrayed throughout his entire career no longer intrigues the current gerneral audiences. Therefore, he decides to do the next best thing to continue working in the glamorous life which is the entertainment industry! WHAT!

    • Hip-Hop 102

      And he will flop at it, face it, he is as done as a doornail, on the same boat as MC Hammer & Master P.

  • Russellj

    Damn fif is doin the damn thing but removing the tats though? i like to see how it turns out in the long run

  • Hebrew Tattoos

    This is an interesting post. While tattoos some time ago were for rebels, they have become so popular that they are no too common. You now have to remove tattoos to look cool!

  • Rachael5922

    snap your going to do a sacrilegious thing and remove some ink? that is unbelievable you must be dedicated to your on screen art! Snap i would have been irate if you shot dude and then didn't grab the lettuce, thats wack!

  • density

    50 make move do what u got to do, u said right along time ago even kanye aggreed, lol "50 told me go 'head switch the style up And if they hate then let 'em hate And watch the money pile up"

  • da police

    why do black people have tattoos, waste of money, you can hardly see them, why dont you do skin lightening tattoos

    • yeayea

      wow doubl negative that's gonna look real fly 40 years from now

    • Powernupe

      Personally, I think tats look better on dark skin. I don't judge others, but personally speaking, I could never mark my body - I just don't see the point.

    • doubl negative

      I'm black and tattooed-up, and they look OK. I have several hip-hop related tatts - Da Wu-Tang "W", KMD'z Black Bastards character, Diamond D'z Stunts, Blunts & Hip-Hop logo and Operation: Doomsday. I'm gonna get da Illmatic logo soon. Az 4 50, he'z a terrible emcee and an even worse actor. If U can't make decent flicks, even when U work with legendary thespianz De Niro, Pacino and Sam Jackson, U have no buziness bein' in da industry.

    • DA POLICE

      I'm black too...just thought its was funny...i have lots of tats i can't see..lmao

    • HAKIM72

      u a dumb ass 4 asking a question like dat,dnt worry about why we sport tats,go arrest some broke ass skinhead.

    • chastin84

      yea u wouldnt dare say that to a black mans face... u would get bitched slapped like the bitch u r!!!

    • Anamascity

      We get them because we want them. You sound ignorant as hell. What color are you? You must be a broke ass person counting another person's money. Your a hater!

  • I_Am_Beast

    Who gives a shit?

  • manslaughter

    his first album was good it made him all the money he's got, but acting? i really doubt his got the talent for it. but its his life and money who i'm i judge. but the sooner he's out of the rap game the better BISD was a true reflection of the nigga's inabilities.

  • fukwethebest

    hes worth all this money for a reason cause the nigga smart so stay off his dicc succas

  • C/GADDIC

    Not a smart move Fifty should focus fully on his music His rich as hell anyways he just needs to recapture the passion like Em did makes no sense going into a market he's not good in Production maybe but NOT ACTING -he's just not a decent actor He needs a total artistic transformation if he intends on dropping more albums and NOT retire from rap as he says makes no sense to be worth a billion dollars and the genre that got you there doesn't even get the respect it deserves 50 is putting music on the back burner and karma is a bitch it will put his ass on the backburner too(500, 000-BISD-from a diamond selling artist)

    • JasonCTown

      Wu didnt keep the same style. They do have several different ones, for example they rhyme in Stream of Consciousness.....and many other styles. Please do ur homework if you're going to make outrageous claims.....like you invented the question mark.

    • skyz the limit

      Why would 50 need to re-invent himself musically? The Wu Tang niggas kept the same style they came in to the game with everyone still loves them!

  • ImFromDaSouth 239/404

    Might as well, he done fell off in the rap game anyway.

  • Da, Fella

    This nigga 50 is smart, music aint a real job niggas.. And how the fuck u expect him to still raping bout killing niggas and slaying shit, while hes a 100+ million dollar man? It wouldnt make sense... When hes far from that life and already told it.. Movies? Keep doing yah shit mayne watch u gonna blow up theatre box offices soon

  • bobby_b_nice

    50 can do no wrong in Duke_boy's eyes. neway, he'll probably be typecast like most other brothers in films. but they could probably get someone better for cheaper if anyone was smart in Hollywood.

  • CAN'T....BAN......DUKE....... BOY

    50 NEED TO GET RID OF THOSE TATS CAUSE TATS ARE POINTLESS ANYWAYS..............NIGGAS THINK WEARING TATS IS GANGSTA............

    • card puller

  • giggin

    50 is an awful actor so this is pointless

  • als_360

    Bout time, coz the music thing just aint' working out playa, Now I guess you can't be gangsta 50 from Jamaica, Queens, and make a techno dance album and get your tat's removed. I bet people in Europe bout all twelve copies of BISD. That's why he doing a European tour coz they slow as hell anyway, they like anything that comes on MTV Who's the whanksta now!!!!! You clown!!!!

    • ermmmmmmmmmm

  • bizzekbiatch

    don be surprised if the next thing we hear is that 50 will be bleaching his skin and b staring as William" the Ax Roberts" founder of the kkk

  • Drucifer1983

    50 making smart choices...........I dont really like his music, never really did, but he's a very wise person, music at this point is a joke for a career choice unless you want to tour all the time, Bootlegging crippled the Buisness, thats why all the smart cats have other things like vitamin water, Clothing lines, Headphones and what not............I would view music as a hobby and look for other avenues to be my real job..........

    • Hip-Hop 102

      He ain't making smart choices he don't have too many options, he music is whack, his clothing line is whack, his record label is whack, bootlegging didn't hurt him it was the bullshit he put out. Trying to ruin niggaz career and ended up fuckin his up. He ain't wise, He fuckin fool, and Im offended that he even read 48 Laws of Power. If he was wise he would have read the chapter talking about knowing when to quit while you are ahead and not missing your mark he bit off more than he could chew now he is a gay euro rapper that want to get rid of his so called gangsta image. Co-Sign. that pussy ass rapper is no better than Master P, Except even worse, we all know that this jackass deceived the public that launched this immoral war on the mainstream, he's a phony and a fraud, a Bigger fraud than officer ricky, this clown is a disaster and always will be. He's very lucky that pun isn't alive to see this.

    • yeayea

      lmao I read a few paged of 50th law and there is no way after hearing 50 in interviews for years that he had ANY part in writing that book lol. I'm sure he wouldn't understand half the words.
