Ever since we saw him pumping iron in his “In da Club” video in 2002, we’ve had a secret crush on him. The rapper turned actor, has had a tumultuous life having been raised by his grandparents, after his cocaine addicted mother was murdered when he was eight years old. When initially hearing about the Queens-bred rapper, many were shocked that he was shot nine times, before the release of his first album. In an interview with “Rolling Stone” he once said about those trying to take his life: “This ain’t no rap war. This have nothin’ to do with no rappers…the people that dislike me have nothin’ to lose. I’m from the bottom. They’re uneasy about still bein’ on the bottom.” His honesty is endearing and quite frankly… Hot.
