50 Cent's  audition tape  for a role in 2007's  American Gangster recently hit the net. Although many may not know that the mogul actually tried out for a part, according to Defamer the rapper was beat out by Chiwetel Ejiofor for a part as one of Frank Lucas' brothers.

In the audition tape, the rapper seems to know the lines pretty well. Among many the topics discussed in the monologue, 50 Cent even at one point pretend's to cry in the clip, which is all but expected.

Take a look at the audition & judge for yourself if 50 Cent would have served as the better pick.
