50 Cent Address Ozempic Rumors Following Weight Loss

50 Cent has been on an intense training and diet plan for about eight months and this has led to a significant weight loss. During the early part of his career, Jackson became known for his shredded physique. After his performance at Super Bowl LVI, he began being body shamed on different social media platforms.

Jackson was a surprise appearance during the performance that included Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and Mary J. Blige. He was seen hanging from the ceiling to perform his hit “In Da Club.” This was a surprise appearance but one that was well received by the crowd and fans of the rapper. In today’s age where social media is king, there are also plenty of trolls who want to point out some issues that they create.
