[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]50 Cent[/lastfm] is on a book promoting tour for his anti-bullying book for kids called “Playground” and in it he admits being a bully as a kid.

According to HiphopDX.com:

Fif appeared on “The Today Show” this morning, and spoke about why fatherhood prompted him to change his views on bullying and teen violence.

This morning (October 25) rapper/actor/author 50 Cent briefly appeared on NBC’s The Today Show. The Queens, New York Rap superstar spoke about his new book, Playground, a novel for teens on bullying. Asked why teens may take an interest in the issue, the G-Unit Records CEO stated, “When I present something, it’s a little different,” stressing that younger readers may pay attention.

Also a father, 50 Cent explained with his speckled past, including arrests and shootings, why he would feel so inclined to speak about an issue like bullying. “Because my son is 15 years old, right now, it’s a relevant issue for me.” Fif continued, noting that even as an adolescent, he was more of a bully than a victim. “I had more experiences where I was part of the problem. To now have an adult’s [perspective], I can [look back] and say ‘that’s wrong.'”

Playground by 50 Cent and Lizzie Akana releases November 1 on Razorbill Books.

50 might wanna write a book about the bullying has done to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ja Rule [/lastfm]and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rick Ross [/lastfm]and the countless other hip hop artist that he has targeted! He is in the right business to be the biggest bully on the block.
