In what was definitely an unexpected style switcheroo for the controversial artist, rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson showed up to the film festival with a new curly ‘do. As he promoted his forthcoming flick Things Fall Apart, onlookers noticed that 50 appeared to have texturized his mane, resulting in a slick style that glistened in the heat.  

Jackson was shown rocking the same ‘do in a few released pics from the set of Freelancers, where he plays opposite Forest Whitaker, so it’s possible that his new hairstyle is just temporary. The infamous heckler welcomed jabs via Twitter, writing: "Hahaha you fools talking about my hair for my last movie. Ok I just make more money off it lol I'm WINNING.”

50 previously mentioned on Twitter that he is working tirelessly on new music. “I’m working hard, I’m recording a lot of material and continue to do so because I want to exceed the level reached by Get Rich or Die Trying." At one point, because he felt so inspired by the Euro scene, he was dead set on releasing Black Magic, an all disco album that encouraged his fans to dance the night away. His newest material doesn’t appear to be affiliated with dance or disco in anyway, but maybe those musical influences are pushing the rapper to try new things.
