50 Cent Weight Loss Pictures
The typically buff and muscular rapper lost 60 pounds to play his role of a football player fighting cancer. Fiddy dropped from 214 pounds to 160, which is quite emaciated considering the rapper stands at six feet tall.
This particular role was close to his heart, as the character he was portraying was based on one of 50′s closest friends. He told Parade Magazine, “I started running to suppress my appetite. Towards the end it was really difficult. It was like, if I don’t get close enough to what my best friend looked like to me at that point before he passed, then I’m not doing the story any justice.” No one can say this man isn’t dedicated to his craft!
This weight loss was extremely drastic, but it’s not even the lightest 50 has ever been. When the ‘In Da Club’ rapper was shot in the jaw in 2000, he had to go on an all liquid diet and dropped to 157 pounds.
