Why 50 Cent Ditched the Bulletproof Vests

Yo, check this out! Just the other day, Men’s Health dropped a fresh interview with the one and only 50 Cent. He’s out there on his mega 93-date Final Lap Tour, celebrating two decades of his fire 2003 joint, Get Rich or Die Tryin’. Curtis, repping Queens, takes a trip down memory lane and talks about some throwback pics from his wild ride in the game. Let’s dive in!

So, remember those days when 50 Cent was rockin’ that bulletproof vest? They ask him why he ain’t sporting that iconic piece anymore. Here’s the scoop straight from the man himself: “When did I ditch the bulletproof vest? Man, I ain’t got no clock on that. You know what went down? I upgraded, got them top-notch vehicles, like, level 6. Same stuff Obama cruises in.”

50 keeps it real: “Didn’t really make sense to have it on all day, ’cause it was just that moment between stepping in and out the spot. So, I started leaving it behind, but it’s still a part of my vibe. Back in the day, you’d spot me more often with it than without it.”

But hold up, let’s get to 2023! Yeah, Fif’s been diving into more than just beats lately. He’s been making major moves outside the music scene for like a decade, dropping his Le Chemin du Roi champagne, flexing with the Power TV game, and even bringing G-Unit to a whole new level with his production studio.

But don’t get it twisted, the man ain’t done with the mic. He’s still spitting flames. You won’t believe it—50 Cent teamed up with his Queens homie Nas after two decades for a fresh track called “Office Hours.” They’re bringing the heat back to the block!

That’s how 50 Cent keeps rollin’, y’all. From them bulletproof vest days to rocking the stage worldwide. The game ain’t ready for him to fade out.
