(starpulse.com) - Rapper 50 Cent has ditched his recording name for new movie Home of the brave because he fears his music fans will be disappointed with the character he plays. The star combines his alias with his real name Curtis Jackson in publicity material for the war movie, which also stars Samuel L. Jackson.
He says, "I think when people hear 50 Cent they directly associate it with the music and the aggressive content in the music. I think they might be disappointed when they see my character and he doesn't have the same aggressive edge that they're familiar with from 50 Cent, the music. So I told them to use my real name but put 50 Cent in the middle."
