50 Cent is nearly unrecognizable after dropping more than fifty pounds for his role in the movie “Things Fall Apart.”

The rapper-turned-actor plays a football star diagnosed with cancer in the film, which he also wrote. “I lost 54 pounds for it,” Fiddy (born Curtis Jackson) told Us Weekly magazine.

The 6-foot tall, Grammy Award winner reportedly went on a 9-week liquid diet and spent three hours a day on a treadmill to acheive the dramatic weight loss, going from 214 to 160 pounds.
