First, 50 Cent was bulletproof. Then he was so skinny it looked like a water gun could do what Darryl Baum (allegedly) couldn’t do with nine shots from a 9 mm pistol. Now, Fiddy’s back, stronger than ever—well, strong enough to survive a bi-coastal flight without peanuts, at least.
At the end of last month, the rapper/actor posted pictures to Twitter that showed him missing about 55 pounds. The dramatic weight loss was deliberate, he said, for the role of a cancer patient in the yet-to-be-released movie, Things Fall Apart.
Thankfully, when Fiddy turned up at The Pearl for his show June 6, he looked far less zombie-like. Maybe the layers of shirts and a coat he wore onstage contributed to the perceived heft, but we were glad to see his head didn’t have the same bulbous, alien-from-Communion look to it.
