VH1 will premiere of the VH1 Rock Doc "50 Cent: The Origin of Me," on Monday, May 23, 2011 at 9:00PM ET/PT. Here is the synopsis:

Watch as hip hop legend, actor, and business mogul 50 Cent travels to the town of Edgefield, SC, in search of his family's past and comes face to face with the brutality of slavery.

Along the way, 50 also learns that in the years following the Civil War, his ancestors faced the infamous 'REDSHIRTS', the precursors to the KKK, giving him a new perspective on the violence he encountered as a young man in Queens. As America commemorates the 150th anniversary of that war this spring, the film provides a moving testament to the lines that still divide us.

"50 Cent: The Origin of Me " is the newest film in the Emmy Award winning VH1 Rock Doc franchise. VH1 Rock Docs are feature-length documentaries that tell unique stories of artists and music from a wide range of genres, styles and musical perspectives.

"50 Cent: The Origin of Me," will be available online following the on-air premiere on May 23. For more information on VH1 Rock Docs go to RockDocs.VH1.com.
