Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson launched a comedy website on Thursday, ThisIs50Comedy.com, with the help of comedian Young Jack Thriller, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The comedy site joins Jackson' entertainment site, ThisIs50.com and will be hosted by Thriller, who is best known for "a series of fake and often offensive interviews with stars like Rihanna, Chris Brown and Michael Vick."

Jackson transitioned into acting but tends to play dramatic roles. There are hints at his humor in music videos like "Candy Shop" and "In Da Club," but it is unknown whether the rapper will star in his own comedy sketches.

Jackson recently took heat for performing at the 2005 Venice Film Festival, an event which was organized by family members of Gadhafi and subsequently donated the substantial income to UNICEF.

Jackson made his name as a rapper before venturing into acting. His film credits include "Righteous Kill," "Twelve," "13," and "Caught in the Crossfire." Jackson will star as a police officer in the upcoming crime drama, "Freelancers" and has a 20-film deal with Lionsgate for his production company, Cheetah Vision Films.

Jackson was raised in Queens, NY by his grandparents after his father ran out and his mother was shot when he was 8-years-old. His first single as 50 Cent was "Thug Love" with Destiny's Child and he was shot twice in the head, three days before filming the music video for the song.

50 Cent has been romantically linked to comedian Chelsea Handler and singer Ciara in the past year, but both ladies claimed that they were just friends with the rapper.
