New York rapper Fat Joe has shared his reaction to 50 Cent's recent massive weight loss and considered whether or not he could force himself to lose 54 pounds in a nine-week timespan.
Despite their past issues, Joe said he envied Fif's ability to lose so much weight.
"Yeah, that's his thing. I'm not mad; he's trying to get money. I could never do that, though, I wish I could. Fat Joe loves food too much. I'm scheming on some Pinkberry right now. [laughs]" (VIBE)
Last week, former G-Unit member Game gave his reaction to 50's weight loss.
"All my boys was sending me pictures of 50 where he sucked up, looking like a smoker, lost all the weight," Game said in an interview. "They were looking for me to give them some type of funny feedback or clown with it. But all I saw was a dude that's trying to win an award for playing a cancer patient and really look like a cancer patient. I do my own assessment of character judgment. Right here in my mind, I was like, 'See? Progress!' That's what I'm on today, man. But I have the right to get in your a** if I need to." (MTV)
Fif recently said he did not envision walking home with an Academy Award for his portrayal of a cancer victim in the upcoming film, Things Fall Apart.
He said he doesn't anticipate winning awards for his acting role. "Well, you know, I haven't received accolades that comes with the success that I've had in music," he said. "It would be a surprise" to win any acting awards, he said, noting that it's already a reward to have people aware of the role. (Billboard)
Personal celebrity trainer Mark Jenkins recently talked with SOHH about how 50 could pack on the 54 pounds he lost.
"The best way to regain weight is to do it slowly because you don't want to put that weight on as fat, you want to put it on as muscle and you just put your body through a starvation mode so any food you eat, your body is gonna wanna convert it into fat because you've been starving it. You want to give yourself a good amount of time and eat healthy, you don't want to get a lot of fat so stack up your calories on your healthy food, because when you go from nothing to a lot of food it could complicate your intestinal tract."
