50 Cent's into books

Nah Right just posted the cover art for the first three books to be released under 50 Cent's new G-Unit Books imprint. Word about his unlikely publishing venture with MTV/Pocket Books came last year (extremely bad pun alert) following their success with his autobiography, From Pieces to Weight: Once Upon a Time in Southside Queens. I can't find anything solid on how much involvement the New York Times bestselling author has had in writing the books, but from the covers it appears that he's being listed as co-author on all three. I'm putting my money on Baby Brother, his collaboration with "urban erotic" novelist Noire, as the volume with the most potential for amazingness/badness/amazing badness. The guy who crooned such sensual classics as "Candy Shop" and "Magic Stick" working with the woman behind  Thug-a-Licious? Imagine the possibilities.

By the way, if you are at all interested in gangsta rap and haven't read Ethan Brown's Queens Reigns Supreme: Fat Cat, 50 Cent and the Rise of the Hip-Hop Hustler yet, you should get on it. The book's basically Can't Stop Won't Stop crossed with The Wire.
