Rapper slash actor 50 Cent recently talked about the mindset of the dark drug dealer he plays in the new movie, Twelve. Telling the ladies of "The View" about his past in drug dealing but admits that the role called for a more serious character.
"It's a totally different experience for me because I've been away from that for a very long time," 50 Cent said in an interview on "The View." "In this actual project, the character's actually darker. I've never done anything with those motivations. There's a scene in the actual film where he's excited to trade the drugs for a woman's virginity. That's darker than anything I've experienced…Well, I mean just my motivation. I didn't come there to actually hurt anyone. It was just what the environment provided for me without any requirements…Like they don't say, 'You need a master's [degree] to be a drug dealer.' Everyone's eligible. You have two hands [and] two feet… Run, the cops are coming."
