In his book, 50 Cent says he has never consumed alcohol or used drugs, an admission that seems to run contrary to his music and his image.

“You might legitimately ask, ‘Who are you to preach about fitness? Aren’t you the guy who dropped joints like High All The Time?’ Hardly seems like a fitness anthem,” 50 Cent says.

“I don’t drink and I don’t use drugs, and I didn’t back then, either. I put that joint on the first record because I saw artists consistently selling 500,000 with that content.”

Wow, 50 Cent admitted that he was an actor, playing a role to sell records.
