Sheridan A Rap Fan

Acclaimed film-maker JIM SHERIDAN had a major motive in deciding to direct 50 CENT's upcoming movie GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN' - he's a huge rap fan.

Sheridan is currently in Canada shooting the rapper's semi-autobiographical movie, and it's now been revealed that the 56-year-old director is an avid hip-hop follower.

ARTHUR LAPPIN, an executive producer of the film and a longtime Sheridan collaborator, says, "Two dozen times, Jim has looked at rap projects but never found the one that measured up or the star he wanted.

"He's had a fascination with rap that goes back to the beginning of the music. Ten years ago he had a dog named SNOOP."

50 Cent, real name CURTIS JACKSON, adds of Sheridan, "He knows his KRS-ONE, big-time."
