Do yall remember when 50 Cent lost all that weight and look like he was dying, for a movie role? Well, the homie Necolebitchie is reporting that the unofficial trailer for that very film, Things Fall Apart, directed by and starring Mario Van Peebles, as well as Lynn Whitfield and Ray Liotta, has been released after itâ€™s premiere this weekend at the Miami International Film Festival.
In the movie, Curtis â€™50 Centâ€™ Jackson plays University of Michigan football player Deon Barnes, an NFL hopeful whose career plans are deferred by a cancer diagnosis. 50 reportedly dropped close to 60 pounds for the role, and when photos were released months ago of the dramatic weight loss, the emaciated 50 Cent was the ridicule of jokes from the public.

Waka Flocka Flame shook up the charts and the airwaves with his debut album, Flockaveli. The rapper has joined PETA’s iconic “Ink, Not Mink” campaign and is showing his skin to help animals save theirs.
Waka thinks that “[fur] is nasty!” and urges the hip-hop community to “understand what you buy.” Animals who are killed for their fur, such as foxes, minks, rabbitsâ€”even dogs and catsâ€”are bludgeoned, stomped, electrocuted, and often skinned alive. Waka shares his disgust and exclaims, “Damn â€¦ electrocuting and killing animals!” Undercover investigations reveal the horror as the animals struggle and scream in pain as workers peel the skin from the writhing animals’ bodies.
