Well, right on the heels of 50 Cent's new co-partnership with director Antoine Fuqua comes this news. He's releasing a new anti-bullying youth novel titled Playground with The Penguin Young Reader Group.

The book will be semi-autobiographical and comes out January 2012. He's already publicly acknowledged his rough and criminal background, so it'll be interesting to see how detailed the novel will be.

This will be his third book released following his memoir From Pieces to Weight and a self-help guide co-authored by Robert Greene, titled The 50th Law.

I suspect if sales of this novel are brisk, we'll soon be alerting you of the film being developed from it.
