Introducing . . . Condoms by 50 Cent

You have his CDs, you've chugged his vitamin water, you've worn his clothing but will you buy his condoms?

The heavily diversified rapper 50 Cent is coming out with a line of condoms.

"The kids become immune when you constantly beat them over the head -- read a book, read a book," the rap star tells the New York Post.

"We have to be a little more creative about it. It's the same with safe sex. As opposed to being part of a safe-sex campaign, I'm going to make condoms and donate a part of the proceeds to HIV awareness."

50 Cent and G-Unit recently launched a line of books, with the first one called "The Ski Mask Way." The 31-year-old rap star says he plans to turn the book into a film, with production beginning next year. He says he'll probably have a role in it, because one of the characters is based on him.

No word yet on how 50 Cent's new line of condoms will be distributed, or when they'll hit the market.
