I heard it's about a suburban accountant who embraces his middle class circumstances. It's called W.A.S.P.Y.

Hehe. Though I'm not a big 50 cent fan, I hope these are well done and bring in some people who havn't been exposed to the medium.

if done well and well distributed, this might work very well.
Marvel did something like this some 10 years ago as well with KRS-One and Kyle Baker remember

NEW YORK - 50 Cent will again turn his reality into fiction with a new line of hip-hop novellas and graphic novels featuring his former G-Unit rap crew buddies, a publisher announced.
ADVERTISEMENT

Pocket/MTV Books promised the venture would showcase "gritty" stories and cover much of the same terrain as 50 Cent's raps.

"These tales will tell the truth about The Life; the sex, guns and cash; the brutal highs and short lives of the players on the streets," the publisher said in a release over the weekend.

The G-Unit Books line of street fiction will feature G-Unit members Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck and Olivia as characters, the release said.

Nikki Turner, author of "The Glamorous Life" and "A Hustler's Wife," will pen the line's first novella. It is set to be published in 2007.

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, was recently criticized by community groups in Philadelphia and Los Angeles for billboards promoting his semi-autobiographical movie, "Get Rich or Die Tryin'." The ads featured an image of him holding a gun in one hand and a microphone in the other.

I'd like to say that he'll probably have a tv show sometime. Then, maybe, it's a Broadway Musical.

at least and feels like guys like jay-z and puff daddy are actually smart business men. this guy seems like some animal they pulled off the streets with mediocre rap skills, no real talent, and a lot of overhyped persona.

a lot of the early 90's guys were good. dre, ice cube, the rest of NWA, snoop dogg, 2-pac, so on.

i'm not exactly all that knowledgeable in the field of rap music, but if the patterns hold up, an over-saturation of anything will eventually heavily dillute the quality of the product... and when i switch on the TV or go into record stores these days it's all about the gangsta rap and the bling bling.... so.... draw whatever conclusions you will from that....
