50 Cent urged HOME OF THE BRAVE co-star Samuel L Jackson to reconsider his stance on working with untrained rappers after pointing out Oscar winner Jamie Foxx has built a music career on the back of his film success. The rap star was upset when Jackson refused to appear in his 2005 movie GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN' because the Pulp Fiction actor refused to take lower billing to a non-actor. 50 Cent, real name CURTIS JACKSON, says, "If he insists on taking that stance, people from the music world can look at Jamie Foxx and be upset. Jamie Foxx sold his records based on him being an Oscar-winning actor. "It works vice versa on all different fronts. You see people come from all different perspectives of entertainment and receive opportunities. I don't want to do a movie with a rapper either if he's not 100 per cent prepared for it." Jackson was pleasantly surprised by the rapper, but he's still keen to rally against casting musicians over trained actors in movies. He adds, "I said to the director, 'It's your film. If he's the best actor you've seen, fine. If you need a built-in audience of some sort... do what you got to do. "50 Cent and I had lots of conversations about this and we see each other out at functions, so we have a working and social relationship that's fine."

The single will feature Eminem, 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and introduces new Shady artist Ca$his....
