Virgin Megastore Union Square and MTV Books Team Up to Host Rapper 50 Cent for His First Book Signing

** UPCOMING EVENT **

EVENT: The fastest selling debut artist of all time, 50 Cent,
will be on hand for his first book signing at Virgin
Megastore, Union Square. In this first person
narrative, 50 Cent, lifts the veil on his complicated
life -- from the murder of his mother when he was eight,
to hustling on the streets; from the assassination
attempt that nearly finished him to his meteoric rise to
the top of hip hop royalty in his autobiography
"FROM PIECES TO WEIGHT: Once upon a time in Southside
Queens," (MTV Books). 50 Cent will be signing copies of
his book for 300 lucky fans at Virgin Megastore,
Union Square.

DATE/TIME: Tuesday, August 9, at 11 a.m.

LOCATION: Virgin Megastore/Union Square
52 East 14th Street
New York City

MEDIA CHECK IN: Starts at 10:30 a.m.

SIGNING STARTS: 11:00 a.m.

DETAILS: Earlier this year, 50 Cent became the first artist since
the Beatles in 1964 to place at least four songs in the
Top 10 of Billboard's Hot 100, and his second album The
Massacre has sold over 6 million copies worldwide and
counting. He is currently on "The Anger Management
Tour", with Eminem, G-Unit, Lil' Jon & the East Side
Boys. The first 300 customers who purchase a copy of 50
Cent's autobiography, at Virgin Megastore, Union Square,
starting August 9 at 9:00 a.m. will be given a wristband
for entrance into the signing.

ADDITIONAL Info:
"FROM PIECES TO WEIGHT: Once upon a time in Southside
Queens" is a violent and introspective memoir that
reveals not only 50's story but the story of a
generation of youth faced with hard choices and very
little options. A tale of sacrifice, transformation and
redemption, but it is also a one of hope, determination
and the power of self. Told in 50's own unique voice,
the narrative drips with the raw insight, street wisdom,
and his struggle to survive at all costs...and behold
the riches of the American Dream.
