50 Cent is bringing his family roots to the TV screen. The Queens native is in the process of filming a VH1 documentary titled "50's Roots" where he will trace his roots on camera with the help of his aunt, Gladys Simpkins.

The rapper, who just wrapped production on a new flim, "Things Fall Apart," is currently filming scenes for the documentary in Edgefield County, South Carolina. On Tuesday (May 25), Fif mingled with residents of Johnston County, but maintained a more lowkey profile while eating lunch with his aunt the next day.

He dined at the Old Edgefield Grill where front house manager, Mary Turner revealed that the G-Unit general ordered a cheeseburger with french fries and apple juice. She explained of her encounter with the megastar, "He was a real gentleman."

In related news, Fif recently lost 54 pounds for his role as a football star battling cancer in the aforementioned "Things Fall Apart."

VH1 has yet to set an air date for "50's Roots."
