Project: G-Unit Books

Collaborators: MTV and Pocketbooks

After publishing the memoir From Pieces to Weight, co-authored with Kris Ex, 50 caught the writing bug in a big way. Partnering with MTV Books and Pocket Books, he launched G-Unit Books, an Urban Fiction imprint for Simon & Schuster, in 2007. As an author, Fif always has a collaborator, but he must like seeing his name in print because the titles keep coming: Death Before Dishonor, Blow, The Ski Mask Way, The Diamond District, and he is far from done. 50 also published the non-fiction The 50th Law, written with Robert Greene, which is a philosophical work devoted to teaching readers how to be a bad motherf#$ker in all situations.
