50 Cent challenges anyone to beat him at his own game – literally


The making of Fiddy’s computer game hasn’t been without difficulty, but after two years, it’s finally due for a release in January. Still, the delay means one thing – the man himself has had a chance to get good at it:

“I actually had the opportunity to play it, and I’m pretty good at it. If anybody out there wants to create a challenge or wants to bet some money online, we could play the game right now.”

It’ll have 19 new, exclusive, tracks, as well as a bunch of Fiddy’s older stuff, including the big hits. Oh, and bizarrely, it’s apparently inspired by Leonardo DiCaprio’s 2006 film “Blood Diamond”. Still, I bet I could kick his arse at it, without too much trouble. You’re on, Fiddy.

The newest beneficiary of the “joined up” marketing/selling deal is 50 Cent who, according to rumours, is set to SMASH Madonna’s $120m deal…

50 Cent kind of isn’t that bothered about file-sharing, as he realises the music industry needs to change – and that artists can make money in other ways than flogging them an album every year.

He said in his slightly odd drawl – “The concerts are crowded and the industry must understand that they have to manage all the 360 degrees around an artist. They have to maximize their income…
