50 Cent is looking like himself again. He shocked fans in May when he tweeted photos of himself looking emaciated, having lost 54 pounds in nine weeks for a role as a cancer patient in 'Things Fall Apart.'

The rapper lost the weight with a liquid diet and daily 3-hour workouts, and his first meal after he finished shooting was a steak.

"I remember specifically what the first thing was, because I was starving," he said on 'The View' Tuesday. "I had a steak. It was 12 ounces, but I got about four ounces in before I started getting sleepy."

Below is a photo of 50 earlier this year, and two photos from Wednesday night at the 'Twelve' screening in New York.
