50 Cent fans were shocked when images of the now-gaunt rapper were posted on his website,  50 cent lost atleast 50 pounds for his new movie he created called  “Things Fall Apart,” in which he plays a football player that diagnosed with cancer .

“I lost 54 pounds for it,” 50 said of his role, inspired by a friend of his who died of cancer . “I was starving.”

50 reportedly dropped down to 160 pounds from 214 , while also losing 6 inches from his waist . He ditched his muscles during a nine-week training session, comprised of a liquid diet and daily walks on a treadmill for up to three hours.

Tony Yayo had an interview with MTV about 50 Cent’s career . “50 doesn’t party, he doesn’t drink. For his new film, the guy was, like, 130 pounds,” Yayo said. “He was running from the airport to the hotel. And I was like, ‘Man, he has the three D’s: desire, determination and direction.’ ”

This hasn’t been 50’s first time to lose weight for a film  . Two years ago, during an MTV News interview, the rapper spoke about shedding his muscle mass and growing out his hair, into a mini-afro, for a part in “Microwave Park.” Be on the look out for 50 Cent’s new album, as well as Llyod Banks new album.Be sure to download the Beamer,Benz,Bentley single.

MTV News readers reacted to that drastic weight loss, with one fan commenting: “50 needs a damn cheeseburger!”

50 Cent has begun to pack the pounds back on in anticipation of his next tour, kicking off this weekend. Be on look out for that, he will post updates at his website. The G-Unit crew is back to business and I don’t see any signs of them stopping.
