Tattooed bad boy has been working hard for his role as the cancer stricken football player in Mario Van Peebles' up coming film, "Things Fall Apart." The Queens rapper lost an amazing 50 pounds for the role, leaving him almost unrecognizable. He also has had his arm tattoos removed for this and other upcoming roles. 50 told People.com, "It cuts down on the amount of time I have to spend in makeup covering them up." But he is keeping the back tattoo, whew don't erase them all 50 we love them!
