"Cool, hard, and vivid, a minor classic of a genre you might call gangster rap noir. No fluff here. 50 Cent tells the story of his life…with a novelist’s economy."
— The New York Times
"50 Cent is unflinchingly honest…in this raw, literate memoir…. Opinionated, unrepentant, and unabashedly self-promoting, [From Pieces to Weight] celebrates the rapper’s peculiar brand of the American Dream."
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"A gripping read."
— Time Out New York
