50 Cent is possibly looking to turn a former boy band member into one of the biggest stars on the planet.

Fiddy has expressed interest in signing ex-One Direction member Zayn Malik and teaming him with high-profile rappers. The G-Unit leader sees Malik as the next coming of a former NSYNC singer turned megastar.
