50 Cent Gets Motivated to Sculpt His Body After Hearing D'Angelo's 'Untitled (How Does It Feel)'

2023-08-03 00:27:36 - Dr. Sam Nine Dr. Sam Nine is a renowned urologist with over 20 years of experience in the field. Recognizing the need for more resources dedicated to men's sexual health, he created tadalisxs.com. With his commitment to providing accurate information and fostering open discussions, he has become a pioneering figure in promoting healthier, stigma-free attitudes towards men's health.

During the 2000s, 50 Cent maintained a well-toned physique, all thanks to D'Angelo. In the recent profile published by Men's Health, the acclaimed rapper, known for his album "Get Rich or Die Tryin'," opened up about his fitness journey, which began after surviving a near-fatal shooting incident in 2000.

Following the incident, Curtis Jackson, also known by his legal name, was put on a strict liquid diet, which led to a staggering weight loss of 54 pounds. He stated, "When you slim down, you notice every detail. I am also focused on strengthening myself because who's to say I won't face another attack?"

It was during this time that 50 Cent came across D'Angelo's compelling music video for "Untitled (How Does It Feel)." The R&B artist appeared impressively muscular and shirtless in the video, catching the rapper's attention. Unashamedly, Jackson expressed his admiration for the video and compared D'Angelo's physique to that of Brad Pitt in the film "Fight Club," which left a lasting impact on him.

While D'Angelo's video became iconic, the artist himself became emotionally distressed after its release due to pressure from some female fans who demanded that he strip during live performances. As a result, it took nearly 15 years for D'Angelo to release his third album, titled "Black Messiah."

As part of Men's Health's Hip-Hop 50 package, other renowned artists like Method Man, Ludacris, Wiz Khalifa, Common, and Busta Rhymes are featured alongside Jackson. Together, they are embarking on The Final Lap Tour, which will travel globally until November.

Underscoring his dedication to fitness, Jackson shared on Instagram Live in May that he is intensifying his workout routine in preparation for the tour. He plans to incorporate running into his regimen and even promised to livestream his workouts, showcasing his progress as he aims to shed at least 25 pounds before the tour begins. Jackson humorously added, "Once I'm in top shape, you better prepare for some serious trash-talking. That's why I secretly enjoy getting into fights and stuff."

Overall, 50 Cent's fitness journey and admiration for D'Angelo's physique serve as significant elements of his life and career. Despite facing adversity, both artists have found inspiration through their physical transformations, leaving a lasting impact in the music industry.
