If Your A 50 Cent Fan
He Really Tells You His Secrets

The book has a genuine biographical element which sees 50 letting readers inside his life, from his formative years up to the successes of his major debut album (Get Rich or Die Tryin') and sophomore album (The Massacre).
The part most 50 fans would find interesting would be his account of his feud with rapper Ja Rule. Though he doesn't go into detail, it's still a good account that allows you to form a good picture in your head.
What fans will also love is all the "scrap" material that's included- images from his youth with family members, reproductions of notes and lyrics he has written, backstage passes, tour programs and more.
It is an absolute must have for any 50 fan or hip hop aficionado.
Glad i purchased.

This is a brilliant book with a real insight into his life, written by 50 cent himself. Much better than the film and the additional inserts, photographs and flyers make it an even more interesting read. Would most definitely recommend.
