50 Cent shedding pounds for movie

50 Cent is to shock fans with a dramatic change to his muscular physique – the rapper is losing a staggering 65 pounds for his forthcoming movie Things Fall Apart.

The In Da Club hitmaker co-wrote the screenplay, about a college football player suffering from cancer, and has signed a deal to bring the project to the big screen through his Cheetah Vision Films.

And in order to accurately portray the role, the chiseled star is shrinking his bulging biceps and downsizing his diet.
