Hip-hop star 50 CENT has horrified his fellow rappers by issuing gruelling punishments if he feels they're misbehaving.

The latest victim of the IN DA CLUB rapper's strict system was G-UNIT star Lloyd Banks, who was ordered to run around the block after 50 - real name CURTIS JACKSON - discovered him working on songs without permission.

A source says, "50 went ballistic when he saw Lloyd.

"He told him to run, and 30 minutes later in came a very sweaty Lloyd.

"50's always giving out punishments.

"If members of his crew aren't working hard enough he makes them give him 20 press-ups."
