50 Cent Teams up with Bodybuilding.com Editor-in-Chief on New Book

Rapper turned businessman, 50 Cent has teamed up with Bodybuilding.com’s Editor-in-Chief Jeff O’Connell to write a new fitness book. The book, “Formula 50: A 6-Week Total Body Transformation Plan” is scheduled to be released in January 2013.

Curtis Jackson III, aka 50 Cent, has made millions not only from his music but also from a variety of business ventures. He cashed in a reported $100 million dollars for his partnership with Vitamin Water. Vitamin Water was sold to Coca-Cola in 2007 for $4.1 Billion. He also has his name attached to video games, film and clothing. 50 Cent was spotted at the 2009 Arnold Sports Festival and (at the time) was starting his own supplement line. We have yet to see a supplement line from him but don’t be too shocked if 50 Cent releases a dietary supplement line to coincide with the launch of this book.

The book has a 2013 released date and will be co-written by Jeff O’Connell whose book “Sugar Nation” has received rave reviews. Jeff is also an integral part of the Bodybuilding.com team, the largest health and fitness website in the world. Jeff has also worked with Muscle & Fitness and Men’s Health before taking over the reigns as Editor-in-Chief at Bodybuilding.com
