Maybe he thinks he's Superman. Rap star 50 Cent reportedly tried to beat off bullets with his bare hands when hitmen tried to kill him.
The rapper was left badly injured after three gunmen pumped nine bullets into him in an attack in 2000. New details of the infamous shooting - which features in the rapper's new movie 'Get Rich or Die Tryin' - have emerged during the trial of Murder Inc. record label moguls Irving and Christopher Lorenzo.
The pair are facing a hefty jail sentence over charges of money laundering for New York drug baron Kenneth McGriff.
A witness in the case claims McGriff was behind the shooting, and bragged, "I got him" after trying to kill 50 Cent.
Self-confessed pimp Jon Ragin claims he met the three alleged attackers - including McGriff - in a garage after the attack.
He told the court: "Supreme (McGriff) said, 'I got him'. He thought he was dead. He got shot so many times at close range and there was so much blood."
ragin said McGriff described how the rapper was "squirming" for cover as he tried to stop the bullets with his hands.
