Please help me identify this font used in 50 Cent's "My Life" album cover. Thanks!
To me, it's (obviously) not-a-font, more a graphic. Some alignments and gradients look to fit too much perfectly to be a font.
My 2 cents: start with any generic sans-serif that basically fits your requirements (in this case you could start with Avant-Garde Demi-Bold), "break" it in elementary geometric shapes, extend some strokes, add gradients to each part to create virtual layering effect and finally move up or down some points (mainly center connection of /Y) to adjust with gradients.
