50 Cent Refuses To Star With Other Rappers In Films

He's not going to lend a helping hand to others looking to crossover.

Published April 18, 2011

50 Cent has been honing his acting chops for years, working with coaches and learning as much as he can from co-stars like Robert De Niro, Terrence Howard and Al Pacino. In fact, he’s so serious that he won’t star in a film with a bunch of other rappers.

He tells VIBE magazine, “It’s not my job to lend credibility to so-and-so rapper who’s just coming into the business.”

It's a plan that seems to be working, as 50 currently has a slate of films in development – including Setup with Bruce Willis, Lives of the Saints with Meg Ryan and Freelancers with Forest Whitaker.
