Introduction To 50 Cents ‘Playground’ Book

The guys over at EW revealed the first three chapters of 50′s upcoming book, and we posted the introduction below for your entertainment. Don’t forget, the book hits shelves November 1st. Via NR.

I’ll be the first to admit that not everything I’ve done in my life has been role-model material. I’ve been on the wrong side of the law. I’ve been in violent situations. I’vealso been a bully. I know how a person gets to be likethat. That’s why I wanted to tell this story: to show a kid who has become a bully—how and why that happened,and whether or not he can move past it.

Writing Playground was a personal journey for me.There’s a lot of me in Butterball. I drew on events that happened in my childhood and adolescence as well as things I saw around me. I also tapped into some of the feelings I remember having at that age—feelings aboutmy family, feelings about my future, feelings about other kids on the playground.Living life on the edge has taught me a lot, like the fact that being mentally strong will get you ahead in life. But being a bully won’t get you anywhere. Some kids don’t figure that out until it’s too late. Does Butterball? You’ll have to read the book to find out.
