50 Cent dropped his name's worth for the movie "Things Fall Apart," and a 50+ pounds lighter 50 Cent is almost unrecognizable.
The Grammy Award-winning rapper looks to be going for a Oscar-worthy physical transformation with this role, which required him to drop the weight and lose his former muscular frame. He plays a football star who is diagnosed with cancer, and he's definitely achieved a look that resembles a cancer patient.
The star reportedly went on a 9-week liquid diet and spent three hours a day on a treadmill to go from 214 to 160 pounds. As for what he craved while on his strict diet? Chili's baby back ribs, according to US Weekly.
Now that filming has wrapped and he's back on tour, time to get some meat back on his ribs!
