50 Cent Is That You?: 50 Drops 54 Lbs For ‘Things Fall Apart’

I was worried when I spotted this photo of 50, but it turns out it’s all business.

50 Cent dropped 54 pounds in nine weeks, going from 214 pounds to 160, on a crash liquid diet and three hours a day on the tread mill! This was not an at home competition for The Biggest Loser. The rapper, who has been pushing his way into films, is playing a football player diagnosed with cancer in a movie he co-wrote called Things Fall Apart.

50 said of the experience “I was starving” and says he’s now eating as he gets ready to tour, so don’t worry kids, he will be back in fighting shape in no time.

Check out the video after the jump.
