Now that 50 Cent has revealed that he will unleash two albums this year, he has also released details about the shows he will play with Fall Out Boy. 50 will appear at five shows on FOB's Believers Never Die Part Deux tour this spring, and they are: April 14 in Denver; April 17 in Grand Prairie, TX; April 18 in Houston; April 24 in Charlotte; and April 25 in Columbia, MD.

"This will be a major moment in music history," 50 Cent said in a statement to MTV News. "Joining forces with Fall Out Boy, one of the most dynamic rock bands in the industry, will be an exciting and historic event for rock and hip-hop. This is a chance for me to bring my music not only to hip-hop fans, but to a broader music audience." FOB's Pete Wentz added, "We've been fans of 50 since we heard 'Wanksta' in 8 Mile. We've wanted to do something with him for awhile, and having him out on the tour is gonna take the show to a whole new level. It's exciting to bring two different genres together and give the fans a new experience."

In other 50 news, the Rapper/actor has reportedly stepped in to replace Forest Whitaker in the Sylvester Stallone action movie The Expendables. Ain't It Cool News reported that a delay in shooting forced Whitaker to drop out due to prior commitments, and Stallone wrote in to the website to assure fans that 50 is the right man for the job. "If a man can communicate in one medium, he can communicate in another if his strengths are brought out and he has the support of well-wishers," Stallone wrote. "So, trust me, the change of Forest Whitaker to 50 Cent a.k.a. Curtis Jackson is a good one."

50's next album, Before I Self Destruct, is due out in June, and another one will follow later this year.
