Rapper and actor 50 Cent aka Curtis James Jackson III recently finalized his lease of Shreveport's Millennium Studios as the new G-Unit headquarters and is now giving up sex... Here are the hilarious reasons why. First a little background.

Who is 50 Cent and what does he have to do with Shreveport, LA?

50 Cent is an American rapper and actor who recently leased Millennium Studios from the City of Shreveport to house his new G-Unit Film and Television Studio enterprise. The 48-year-old entertainer broke out in 2003 with his debut album Get Rich or Die Trying which spawned hits like In da Club, P.I.M.P., 21 Questions, and Wankster. In 2005, 50 Cent made his feature film debut in Get Rich or Die Trying, an American crime drama.

Since then, he's expanded his music and acting empire with his own champagne and cognac brands Le Chemin Du Roi and Branson Cognac, and stepping out into the world of boxing, investments, luxury brands, apparel, water, video games, and more. Arguably, his most famous role is that of Kanan Stark in Power on Starz. He both acted and was a producer on the show.

Now that you have a brief overview of 50's insane accomplishments, let's fast forward to today. He has G-Unit at Millennium Studios in Shreveport, and reportedly, at least according to rumors online, 50 and his girlfriend, Jamira “Cuban Link” Haines, have ended things.

But we know the real reason why 50 is shutting things down in Shreveport... Here are some of the best!

  • He didn't realize that Aye Bay Bay had already hit that...
  • He found out what giving someone the 'Shreveport Special' really was...
  • 50 Cent said, “Different day, same s***. Ain’t nothing good in the hood. I’d run away from this bitch and never come back if I could.” Ummm...
  • Even worse, he found out there's a such thing as a 'Shreveport Side Pocket' and he'll never look at sex the same way again...
  • He's already been shot nine times...
  • He already has two kids and he's not anyone's meal ticket...
  • After the 'Candy Shop' and 'Magic Stick,' what's left?
  • He's already involved in various philanthropic activities that work to combat hunger and poverty.
  • He doesn't need his girl to sell mix tapes in parking lots anymore...
  • He's sick of people mistaking him for Baby Savage God of Grind.
  • 50's quoted as saying, “Every negative is a positive." And then he came to Shreveport...
