The Queens rapper 50 Cent shed nearly 60 pounds to play a football player who has been diagnosed with cancer in the Mario Van Peebles film, ‘Things Fall Apart.’
Fitty, who normally tips the scales at 214 pounds, released a photo of himself at a frail 160lbs.
The rapper says he lost the weight by going on a liquid diet and spending three hours a day on the treadmill for nine weeks.
"I was starving," he said. The 34-year-old, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, also removed his arm tattoos for ‘Things Fall Apart.’ "It cuts down on the amount of time I have to spend in makeup covering them up.”
