50 wants to take over.

50 Cent has revealed himself as an unlikely candidate to take over from Chris Evans as the new host of Top Gear.

The New York rapper has owned a large number of luxury cars in the past, despite famously filing for bankruptcy – and feels he can bring something fresh to the show.

“I would love to work on Top Gear. I could save that show for sure, but it would cost them,” he told the Daily Star

“There ain't a car I haven't owned over the years; my car collection is as good as anybody's out there." 


50 added: “The show since the old team left has been unrecognisable and if it don't get back to where is should be soon then it may never recover." 

50 isn’t the only rapper who wants to host Top Gear, after Tinie Tempah and Lethal Bizzle previously launched their own bids to take over the show.

Chris Evans announced his departure from the BBC show earlier in July, amid a dramatic fall in the show’s ratings.

Would 50 Cent be a great Top Gear host?
