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.

    I guess I can move on up to the cabin in the sky because I have arrived.

    let me explain. Darkan said: "50 Cents did well in Get Rich Or Die Trying".

    Monique, the one who called meThe Great Agitator said: "Mr. Jackson is one to watch. He continues to make moves. I think he’s going to REALLY surprise us one day"

    And Cynthia (the author of this post) and I have smoked our peace pipe, so something just ain't right. I've always believed that 50 Cents is not somebody to sneeze at nor sleep on.

    I mean, the 4 of us never seem to agree on much, but here we are holding hands in agreement. So you know what; I have a song to sing that fits this earth-shaking, earth-shattering, epochal, eventful, fantastaliptical, bootylious, historic,monumental occasion. Sing along if you know the words.

    What's this whole world comin' to
    Things just ain't the same
    Anytime the hunter...
    Gets captured by the game

    Everyday things change
    And the world puts on a new face
    Certain things rearrange
    And this whole world seems like a new place

    @ Monique, People should've known when he took the step to removing his tattoos. He actually did well in "Get Rich Or Die Trying". I just think that he has to take time to find the right role that would grow him as an actor.

    Mark my words, Mr. Jackson is one to watch. He continues to make moves. I think he's going to REALLY surprise us one day. We need to get him on the podcast!
