Meet Fiddy The Author
His pen is mightier than his sword nowadays...
50 Cent has turned publisher and is due to launch his G-Unit books in New York today (January 4).
The bad boy rapper will be signing copies of the "hip hop novellas which dare to tell the truth about The Life (on the street)" - his words on the back of the book - this evening. The series includes the titles: 'Death Before Dishonor', 'Baby Brother', 'Hood', 'Soldier 7' and 'The Ski Mask Way'.
So if you're anywhere near the Columbus Circle branch of Borders in New York around 9am get yourself down there, pick up a copy and meet Fiddy.
Explaining the decision to get into literature, the Cent said, "Last year, my memoirs, 'From Pieces To Weight' marked the beginning. Now, I'm rounding up some of the top writers, same way I rounded up some of the top rappers in the game, to form G-Unit and take this series to the top of the literary world.
"The stories in the G-Unit are about our life on the streets and no one knows it better than us. Not to mention, when it comes to delivering authentic, gritty urban stories of the high and low life, our audience expects the best."
Music, film, books - surely Fiddy can only top this with a stint on Celebrity Big Brother?
