50 cent to write teen novel about bullying

Rapper 50 Cent is no stranger to the best-seller list, and now he's trying his hand at fiction. According to MTV, the “Get Rich or Die Tryin'” star is working on a semi-autobiographical novel about bullying called “Playground.”

The book is set to arrive in January from Penguin imprint Razorbill, and will tell the story of a 13-year-old bully who “finds redemption as he faces what he's done.”

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, said in a statement that he wanted to tackle this project because he “wanted to explore how a kid becomes a bully."

"I drew on events from my own childhood and adolescence, but was excited to see the story take on its own life,” he added. “This book would have been very helpful for me growing up and now that I have a teenage son, it is my goal that this will have a positive influence on all teenagers."

Previously, 50 Cent has written a memoir about his rise from a drug dealer to a famed rapper in “From Pieces to Weight,” as well as a book on success with “48 Laws of Power” author Robert Greene called “The 50th Law.”

    @mad. Excellent idea! Wish i thought about that back then. I will certainly keep it in mind for the future. Of course, if parents would take the time and make the effort to teach their kids not to bully, and punish them severely if they do, then maybe the bullies would fade away. Probably never happen, but one can always hope, right?

    I just hope his book doesnt turn out to be a how-to guide for kids aspiring to be bullies. I am pretty sure he did not write the book with that in mind, but, sometimes that does happen.

    FACT: MOST YOUNGER KIDS DO NOT KNOW WHO 50 IS.....BUT OLDER ADULTS DO.
    SO THIS IS ABOUT "MONEY". IF YOU REALLY WANT TO HELP, GO BACK TO
    SCHOOL, AND LEARN HOW TO HELP (EDUCATION)
    MOST OF THE RAPPER, REAL RAPPER WHO LIVED THE LIFE ON
    THE STREET WERE BULLY. THEY WOULD BULLY MANY WITH THEIR GUNS
    AND KILLED MANY IN THEIR HIDE BY SHOOTING...
    SO WRITE YOU BOOK...AND MAKE YOUR MONEY....
    MAYBE A RAPPER WILL BUY IT.

    Good for him, at least he's doing something positive. The past is the past we all make mistakes and do things we're not proud of but that's not a reason to see this as something he's doing just for money or to make what he did in his past disappear this is something that can make a difference. If you don't like him or his music then don't bother leaving your hateful comments, keep it to yourself.

    @kelly and dave,
    What I like about the internet age is that it allows for some nice non-violent retaliation. People bully you in school, just copy those facebook pics of them drunk/smoking/hitting blunts that they were probably stupid enough to put up, then send to parents/school/grandma/church. Then somebody got some splainin' to do.(Make sure to use a proxy and throwaway email) :P

    Johnny Cash once sang, " I shot a man just to see him die" another country singer sang, "Let's Just Get Drunk and Screw"
    They are story tellers writing from observation, personal experiences and a poet's imagination. Instead of being critical, just don't buy the damn book, this isn't about rapping it's about bullying and where he is from I'm sure there are lots of stories to help young people cope with and avoid the things he's seen or participated in.

    A bully is the perfect person to write about a bully. What is wrong with wanting to become a better person? We're SUPPOSED to learn from our mistakes. If 50 cent made all those mistakes in the past & was still making them no one would say a word, but try to improve yourself & everyone jumps on his a**? Do what you do & try to improve upon yourself every day. If you don't you're wasting your time!

    Just to give you an example, my girlfriends son is hearing impaired, and he was bullied throughout elementary and middle school. It started again in high school, but i had started dating his mom and taught him how to defend himself. The first time he laid a finger on the bully who had been tormenting him, the school suspended him for ten days pending an expulsion hearing. At the hearing, the vice principal started talking about Zach becoming the next columbine kid. I shut that guy down fast, saying that if the school had done something about the bully, this hearing would never have been necessary. The mediator assigned by the board of education agreed with me, but the school tried to use any excuse after that to get Zach expelled. I went headhunting and people lost jobs, and rightfully so. Bullies should be stopped as quickly as possible. Period.

    Normally i would agree with you mad. Unfortunately, i have noticed that if a bullied child stands up for themselves and fights back, the school often punishes that child rather than the bully. There have been numerous suspensions and expulsions of bullied kids who fought back in the state live in alone. The reason? Once a bullied child gets angry enough to retaliate, they have just taken the first step to becoming another columbine kid. How messed up is that line of thinking?

    There should always be parents or adults at a playground, or any other place kids gather, to supervise kids so that there will be no bullying tolerated there, too. Same on buses. Drivers need to watch the road while another adult supervises the kids. Adults can do more to help prevent bullying and not look the other way and call it "normal." It is so not normal to the kids suffering the bullying. Protect kids and adults from being bullied. Love your fellow people and "do unto others as u would have them do unto u." Remember that.

    Finally! More attention is brought on bullying. Now if only schools will step up and take responsibility to keep the kids safe from bullying. Teachers and principals are responsible for the safety of their students, and step in to head off potential bullying before it gets out of control. Educating kids themselves on preventing bullying will go a long way with establishing a zero tolerance of bullying. Come on, schools! Do your jobs! Protect the kids while you are teaching them! They can't learn if they're miserable from being bullied.

    Look at the bigger picture, many teenagers are intelligent beyond their years, but lack proper role models where it counts the most (at home). These days they're influenced by media, celebrities, and social networking; so its refreshing to see 50 using his public personna to promote the advantages of positivity-vice drugs and violence. At the very least sparking dialogue may get teens and the community to contemplate the absurd behavior and disastrous outcomes associated with bullying as witnessed in the news all around the country. In addition, "reading is fundamental" so its good use in an excellent platform!

    • @ FAKE RAPPER

      Please tell me you're joking right?

      Ja Rule is in trouble... he hardly has any money left because he's such a horrible rapper...

      Fat Joe... wow really? Rick Ross???? Diddy hasn't been truly relevant since BIG died... I mean the only thing missing from your incredibly stupid comment is Lil Wayne... that would've been icing on the cake.

    Wonderful!! I will be looking for it to come out, if it is well written, and the school systems pay attention, I'd like to see it added to the "must read" lists. Something relevant and important for ALL children. Good Luck 50!!

      Knucklehead...do you even know what you just wrote? This is the guy that talks about killing people and selling drugs in his songs. Might be good music but do you really want your kid googling other stuff by this guy and finding that very adult music?

    I wouldn't give 2 cent for this f'd up thug's views on anything. You dumba$$e$ continue to buy into the idea that a guy who has done more to damage society with his drug-themed music, women-bashing and gansta' lifestyle even has a clue are simply pathetic.

    it's refreshing 2 c a rapper doing positive things after the reputation they've made 4 themselves. I will definetely be purchasing a copy
