1. "50 Cent: The Origin of Me."

    I've spent some time with Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson over the years. As a journalist, I penned a story on his emergence early on for Spin magazine, then a cover story or two for Vibe magazine. I also had the pleasure of producing a competition-based reality series starring Mr. Jackson for MTV (won't even go into the name of said show, since it tanked big time. I thought it had some interesting moments, but it debuted the week that Obama became our president, and America was fixated on the new HNIC). Anyway, just did this doc with Mr. Jackson, and it explores one of ego trip's favorite subjects: RACE! Peep the video above.

    Mongolian slaves STAND the hell UP.

      really enjoyed – but what was up with the pure love at Strom Thurmond HS? was that for real, or a VH1 type of suggestion?

      As an archivist, I was really happy to see "The Origin of Me" on TV. Good to know you were involved. On the other hand I'm surprised that you worked on the 50 Cent reality show. I watched it, but when I saw this episode description on my Tivo I knew it didn't have a chance:
      "...the four remaining contestants are kidnapped, blindfolded, re-educated and shot with paintball guns."
