At this point, we're just waiting for a Wu-Tang, Eminem and Fitty social game collaboration. (What? They do it all the time with albums, right?) Social game publisher GSN Digital, developer Disruptor Beam and rapper slash actor extraordinaire 50 Cent have teamed up to create the artist's first-ever Facebook game, 50 Cent's Blackjack.

Curtis Jackson is no stranger to the "hardcore" gaming world, but social gaming is another beast entirely. You can imagine that's likely why the new found trio went the safe route with a casino-style game in which ya boy 50 deals you in. Players can create their own avatar and go up against dealer Jackson with up to four other players in real time. To that end, the game features live chat and gifting between players.

Those that know the basics of Blackjack will get along just fine in 50 Cent's Blackjack just fine, but the game tends to inundate players with myriad rules and tactics that should be reserved for later in the game. Luckily, the game also provides tips on how to best play Blackjack, which the pros can shut off.

GSN Digital has been on a tear in the social games world, having just opened up a Facebook game-focused studio in Washington D.C. Now, the studio looks to keep the branded social game train running at full steam with 50 Cent's Blackjack. Fans of 50 Cent are no doubt on Facebook, but we'll see whether they're interested in playing Facebook games.
