Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has opted to have some of his very prominent tattoos removed, to better accommodate his burgeoning career in Hollywood.
I took some of the tattoos off because on the movie set, if we got a six oclock call time, I have to be there two oclock the night before, 50 Cent told AllHipHop.com. I gotta go through four hours of make up before we go ahead and play the role. So, I just took it off my arm. My right arm.”
The G-Unit founder has not completely done away with his tattoo. He still bears the two on his back, the signature 50 Cent and Southside tattoos.
The move may be working for 50 Cent as he stars in upcoming film Streets Of Blood.
The drama, which stars Val Kilmer, Sharon Stone and Michael Biehn, portrays the street gangs and corrupt law enforcement in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans.
Outside of Hollywood, 50 Cents current single “Ok, You’re Right” from his highly anticipated album Before I Self Destruct, continues to receive heavy radio rotation.
The rapper also recently dropped his new mixtapes, War Angel and Forever King, the latter being dedicated to the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
