50 Cent was a guest photographer for Smooth Magazine’s 52nd edition.
The G-Unit boss came up with the “warrior princess” theme for the edition, and photographed all 14 models over the course of four days in 10-12 hour shifts.
“[The opportunity] actually came up when they were shooting the 50th edition. My young boy Banks was in that one,” 50 said. “I stopped by the photo shoot and said ‘you know what would be interesting is if we did something that’s a little more artistic, that showed the women in a stronger position.‘”
Look for more photography work from 50 in the future. He compares it to his acting career, and plans to continue taking pictures of beautiful women for the foreseeable future.
