50 Cent will murder every man in New York and I, FutureFriend aka FutureCent will be covering his murder spree. Throughout this journey I will have several random guests help me talk about it. Most of these people think they're auditioning for the Wu-Tang Clan.

I won't be doing a 100% playthrough of the game because it does not deserve it. Still though, don't spoil shit about it, not even in spoiler tags. This game has some dumb plot twists that I want everyone to see.

I will try to update atleast every friday.

50 Cent or known by his rapper name Curtis James Jackson III can be found in the club, bottle full of bub.

Lloyd Banks' his rapper name is Lloyd. What a huge nerd, goddamn.

Young Buck got kicked out of the G-Unit for claiming his name had more monetary value than Fiddy's.

Tony Yayo is his own grandfather.

K-Dog is a mystery. Many theorize that he is the Adam, the first man. Some say he is a ancient necromancer who has lived forever via blood magic. Even a few say he has been cursed by God to wander this earth forever. Fiddy just knows him as the guy who sells crack.

Doc Friday is the man who invented immortality potions AKA vitamin water, cast out by the Wizard Guild for spilling secrets he intends to have 50 Cent gather ingredients so he can craft The Ultimate Spell to end all magic forever.

Moet and Chandon matter so little to the game, I'm not even able to make a joke about them.

DJ Whoo Kid somehow convinced a man to buy his own music.

Bugs is one of the two roles in all his career Phil Lamarr claims to severely regret.

Grizz is secretly War, one of the Four Vanmen of the Apocalypse. Through Fiddy's sacrifices he hopes to be able to summon the rest of the Vanmen and begin the apocalypse.

Popcorn has written over 2000 articles on Buzzfeed.

Booker is a man who has dedicated his entire life to the lofty goal of just eating trash.

Aaron McVigar is a single father who will do anything for his son, even if he has to engage in some slim shady deals.

Spider is the runaway heir of the Duck Dynasty. The Duck Emperor searches for him, not knowing that Spider crosses paths with Fiddy in a fatal game.

Wu-Jang heads a bootleg rap group called the Wu-Jang clan.

O'Hare was voted "Most Likely To Be Killed by 50 Cent" in high school.

Matt is in a cover band that only does MIDI versions of P.I.M.P.

"To-day I bake, to-morrow brew,
The next I'll have the young Queen's child.
Ha! Glad am I that no one knew
That Capidilupo I am styled."

I forgot entirely about this character until now and I still don't know her name, I shall dub her Hobospawn.

Muqtada is really just in the game so 50 Cent can meet George W. Bush.

Spinoza is just another creation of the fine minds behind Saints Row 4 Nolan North voice and Nolan North in uncharted ads.

Similar to his debut series, Bulletproof, the story of Blood on the Sand is based on true life events, and focuses on how 50 Cent stopped ISIS on his Middle Eastern tour while in search of his kidnapped skull friend. This light-hearted action-adventure series stars 50 Cent as he finishes a concert for the troops in an unspecified Middle Eastern country. However, things go south when the venue owner is unable to pay him, though he attempts to compensate by giving him a rare artifact: a diamond-encrusted skull, owned by a famous ancient king. On his way to his next stop on the tour, a group of terrorists stop 50 Cent’s convoy and steal his skull, which is revealed to be an ancient magical artifact that could bring about the end of the world! It’s up to 50 Cent and his pals the G-Unit to stop this ancient cult before they can begin their dark ritual! Twists and turns are abound for Fiddy and crew, but nothing can stop him from his holy quest, and his pay!
Originally released in 2009, the Blu-Ray release includes bonus commentary. This series was funded and commissioned by 50 Cent, and he has discussed interest in a sequel, though no official announcement has been made.

Additional Information
Originally, the game was going to be published by Activision. But due to a merger with Vivendi Games, Blood on the Sand, as well as many other Activision titles at the time, faced the possibility that they would never be released. Thankfully, THQ acquired the rights to the game (over other titles such as Ghostbusters and Brutal Legend) and released this modern masterpiece in gaming on that fateful Tuesday, February 24, 2009. 50 Cent’s chance at completing his autobiographical game series continues here!

50 Cent is going to shoot his way through a number of terrorist organizations in order to find the person who took his pay and escape the Middle East alive. Joining him will be three seminal members of the G-Unit: Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, and DJ Whoo Kid. They’ll be supporting Fiddy with their incredible gunplay and charming banter.

I, ChorpSaway aka The Notorious Ka-Wa-Ii, will be doing my best to navigate Fiddy through the mean streets of the Neo-Middle East, swearing and gunning indiscriminately. Joining me will be my buddy TheJayOfSpade aka Dogbag, running the G-Unit crew as they give Fiddy moral support and additional firearms. We may also hip and/or hop.

Background Information
We will be forgoing the playlist option of the game, opting for the official in-game score by Swizz Beats rather than a random selection of pre-released 50 Cent tracks. We hope you will forgive us for this.

Also, I’m sure a number of you have already seen the other classic Let’s Play of this game, but let’s keep spoiler chat down to a minimum so that any people unfamiliar with 50 Cent’s Middle Eastern quest can enjoy it as it unfolds.
