(LOS ANGELES) -- 50 Cent will address the issue of bullying in a new book he's writing. The young adult novel Playground will focus on a 13-year-old bully who "finds redemption as he faces what he's done," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Fiddy said in a statement, "I drew on events from my own childhood and adolescence, but was excited to see the story take on its own life. This book would have been very helpful for me growing up and now that I have a teenage son, it is my goal that this will have a positive influence on all teenagers."
Playground will be published by Razorbill and is due out next January. 50 Cent previously co-wrote the autobiography From Pieces to Weight and the self-help book The 50th Law.
