50 Cent's Drastic Weight Loss

50 Cent is showing off a very different look than usual. The rapper, who is well-known for his rock-hard abs and muscular build, has recently lost over 50 lbs for a new movie role, and has posted almost-unrecognizable photos of himself on Twitter.

"I lost 54 pounds for it,” 50 told UsMagazine.com of Things Fall Apart, the flick he wrote about a football player with cancer. He says he dropped the weight (going from 214 lbs to 160 lbs in just nine weeks) with a liquid diet and three-hour-a-day treadmill walks. "I was starving," the 34-year-old admitted.

Now that the movie has wrapped, 50 is back on tour and is working to get his old bod back. "I’ve been eating. I’ll be back in shape in no time!" he promised.
