‘I could save that show’ Is 50 Cent headed for the Top Gear job?

Top Gear has been in turmoil ever since the exit of Jeremy Clarkson, with ratings taking a major dive in recent months.

Chris Evans, who replaced Jeremy on the show, announced he was quitting on July 4 via Twitter, stating "stepping down from Top Gear. Gave it my best shot but sometimes that's not enough."

Since then, a lot of people have been wondering who will take over from Chris Evans, and hopefully bring Top Gear back to its former glory.

Well, it would seem as though a certain famous rapper is throwing his hat in the ring for the Top Gear gig. 

In an interview with the Daily Star, American rapper 50 Cent expressed his interest in presenting the award winning television hit.

“I would love to work on Top Gear, I could save that show for sure, but it would cost them."

Fiddy went on to explain why he would be good for the job, claiming that “there ain’t a car I haven’t owned over the years, my car collection is as good as anybody’s out there.”

Apparently, the In Da Club singer is a huge fan of the show: “Top Gear was one of the world’s iconic shows and it’s a shame it came to this. It’s a show you know you can watch any country you are in."

50 Cent is no stranger to the camera, having starred in a number of hit movies and television shows. 

We would absolutely LOVE to see 50 Cent on our screens, rapping his lyrics while attempting to drive 120kmph in a Volkswagen Beetle.
