Rapper 50 Cent working on anti-bullying novel
NEW YORK (AP) - Rapper 50 Cent’s newest work of fiction will have an anti-bullying message.
The Penguin Young Reader Group has signed up 50 Cent’s novel “Playground.” The publisher announced Monday that the book is a semi-autobiographical young adult novel about bullying that will come out in January 2012. The 34-year-old rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, has acknowledged a violent childhood and dealing drugs at an early age.
He’s also released a memoir, “From Pieces to Weight,” and a self-help guide co-authored by Robert Greene called “The 50th Law.”
