50 Cent isn’t just memorizing lines while shooting scenes for his new movie, ‘Setup,’ he’s also setting sights on some real estate. The G-Unit head honcho is looking for a place to call home in Grand Rapids, Mich.

“I’ve been looking,” the rapper-turned-actor revealed in a recent interview. “I like Grand Rapids a lot. It’s quiet enough for me to function.”

Fif, born Curtis Jackson, has spent much of his time in the area as of late, considering he’s shot four films there–the current ‘Setup,’ ‘Caught in the Crossfire,’ ‘Gun’ and ‘Things Fall Apart–during the last 18 months.

The ‘Before I Self Destruct’ creator will likely stay in Michigan and continue producing movies now that he and production partner Randall Emmett secured a 10-picture, $200 million financing deal for their Cheetah Vision imprint.

Though 50 Cent is currently filming ‘Setup,’ he’ll premiere ‘Gun’–a crime thriller about weapons dealers starring the rapper and Val Kilmer–Dec. 15 at a local Grand Rapids cinema. The film is set for a straight-to-DVD release on Jan. 4.
