On this date in 2005, Compton emcee The Game released his debut album The Documentary on Aftermath/G-Unit/Interscope records.

The Game was the first G-Unit representative from outside of NYC to be a part of the then-dominating roster consisting of Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks, and its general, 50 Cent. The album was originally called “Nigga Witta Attitude Vol.1,” but Eazy-E’s wife, Tomica Woods-Wright, legally blocked that N.W.A. title reference from being used.

The album received commercial and critical success, reaching gold status in its first week and 2X platinum within the first two months. The singles that received the most acclaim were 50 Cent-assisted, which many felt was the primary reason for the project’s success. “Hate It Or Love It,” “Westside Story” and This Is How We Do” allowed The Game to see the same degree of fame as his Queens boss, but left many critics to wonder if this feat was capable with no guest appearances. The album’s production was a Hip-Hop producers’ Hall of Fame, with the likes of Kanye West. Scott Storch, Just Blaze, Timbaland, and of course Dr. Dre behind the boards. These key elements make The Documentary The Game’s most notable and successful album to date.

Salute to Dre, 50, Em, The Game, the entire G-Unit and everyone involved in one of the most pivotal Hip-Hop projects of the new millennium.

50 Cent’s New Show ‘Power Book IV: Force’ Theme Song Features Jeremih and Lil Durk

FGm4qVYWUAYUX x

50 Cent’s career may have transitioned from studios to tv shows, he still shows us why he’s still a goat when it comes to making music.

Today, the New York film and music mogul dropped the theme song for his highly-anticipated new Starz show Power Book IV: Force. On Twitter, 50 released the new track “Power Powder Respect,” featuring Lil Durk and Jeremih.

On the track that he refers to as “Chicago vibes,” Jeremih singing vocals grace the hook, and 50 Cent and Lil Durk both follow up with two melodic rap verses.

50 went from a platinum-selling artist to becoming the theme song killer. Since theme song for the original Power series “Big Rich Town” featuring Joe is a smash hit and now he followed up with “Power Powder Respect.”

Power Book IV: Force premieres on February 6, and I’m pretty sure the world is waiting for it.

50 Cent has dominated the television charts among Black households. A few days ago, 50 posted a picture showing him having the top three shows cable shows among Black households.

Power Book II; Ghost 2 ranks No.1 Power Book III; Raising Kanan comes in at No.2, and BMF comes in at No.3.

Along with the Power series and BMF, 50 recently revealed he’s developing a new show; A Moment in Time: Murder was the Case. This show is set to be on Starz and will tell the story of Snoop Dogg’s 1993 murder trial.

MF Doom Loses To 50 Cent In Greatst Rapper Of All Time Poll, Twitter Reacts

Screen Shot 2022 01 03 at 1.01.33 AM

Last Thursday, a Twitter user by the name of @HipHopEsp_ started the greatest rapper of all-time poll. Among the options were Jay-Z, Kanye, Eminem, KRS-One, Dr. Dre, Andre 3000, 50 Cent, and MF Doom.

In the first round, 50 and MF Doom were paired up, and by the end of the poll, users had made it clear that they thought 50 Cent was the greater rapper. 50 had bested doom 70% to 30%.

“First hot take of the year” the @HipHopEsp_ Tweeted, quoting another Tweet that read “I think my twitter is broken” with a screenshot of the results.

The results sparked some outrage on Twitter, with some claiming that the late rapper was better than 50 Cent, and some defending the poll’s results.

Some people brought a bit of sense into the conversation, asking why the two were even pitted against each other. One Twitter user argued that while Doom might have been the better lyricist, 50 sold more and had better working out and party records.

The poll comes at the one-year anniversary of the announcement of Doom’s passing. Doom’s wife, Jasmine Dumile, had taken to Instagram on December 31, 2020, to share with the world that the legendary artist had passed away on October 31 of that year. However, the family wanted to keep the word of Doom’s death a secret.

“Begin all things by giving thanks to THE ALL!” Jasmine wrote. “To Dumile. The greatest husband, father, teacher, student, business partner, lover and friend I could ever ask for. Thank you for all the things you have shown, taught and given to me, our children and our family. Thank you for teaching me how to forgive beings and give another chance, not to be so quick to judge and write off. Thank you for showing how not to be afraid to love and be the best person I could ever be. My world will never be the same without you. Words will never express what you and Malachi mean to me, I love both and adore you always. May THE ALL continue to bless you, our family and the planet. All my Love, Jasmine”

50 Cent Salutes Geoffrey Owens ‘Power’ Performance: “The under dog back on top”

geoffrey owens

In 2018, The Cosby Show Geoffrey Owens was spotted by a fan packing groceries at a Trader Joe’s grocery store in New Jersey. Now he is starring in Power Book II: Ghost as Tariq’s attorney and he is continuing to receive his flowers.

Power executive 50 Cent reposted a meme that highlighted Owens’ transition from Trade Joe’s and back to our screen, saluting his efforts and celebrating those who made it happen. “Yeah the under dog back on Top @iamgeoffreyowens GHOST GLG,” 50 wrote.

While he was working at Trader Joe’s, Owens made an appearance on Good Morning America to thank fans and celebrities who supported him in the moment.

“It’s really overwhelming in a good way,”  said Owens. “I really want to thank everybody out there: family, friends, Hollywood community and the general public for the incredible support, the amazing support, and positivity that they’ve shown for me. It’s quite astounding, it’s very encouraging.”

During that time, Nicki Minaj offered to donate $25,000 to Owens. Once he received the money he donated it all to charity. Shortly after, Owens accepted a role on Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots.

You can catch Owens next Sunday when Owens returns to the Starz screen in episode 6 of Power Book II: Ghost.

50 Cent Declares Himself A ‘Top 10 Dead or Alive’ Rapper, Hints At Retirement and Final Album

50 cent Moneybagg Yo

After 20 years in the spotlight, 50 Cent has been able to keep himself relevant and has made himself a certified hip-hop legend.

Yesterday, 50 took to Instagram to hint at one final album. In the post, he shared a promotional video for his Branson Cognac where he enters Drais Nightclub in Las Vegas, performs, and takes the road. In the caption, 50 says that he’s a top 10 rapper, dead or alive, and says that his next album might be his last.

“Smile my next album might be my last. I terrorized Hip Hop for 14 years, don’t believe me Nielsen, the numbers will never lie but i’m nobody’s favorite Smh Nah I’m Top 10 dead or alive and i’m not done @bransoncognac @lecheminduroi.”

Fif released his last album Animal Ambition back in 2014, debuting at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, selling only 46,000 copies the first week. Last month, the multi-hyphenate spoke on someone saying that he was not a top 10 New York rapper. “They said i’m not in the Top 10 out of New York artist, i’m nobody’s favorite, i’m a nightmare for these fools when i focus,” Fif said in response.

Rick Ross Exposes How Much Money 50 Cent Made From ‘BMF’ Series

091113 music career defining rap battles rick ross 50 cent

While Rick Ross might be trying to help Freddie Gibbs and Jeezy make amends, his longstanding feud with 50 Cent does not seem to be coming to an end any time soon.

During an interview with GQ for his new album Richer Than I’ve Ever Been, Ross took some shots at the Power and BMF creator. He admitted to watching the first episode of BMF out of support for Meech before saying he knew how much 50 made off of the entire season.

“Man, I saw the first [episode]. I was just trying to support the homie Meech, the n-ggas in the street. I could put [my issues with 50] to the side,” Ross said. “I know he may have made a quarter million off the whole season. I’m happy he made that quarter.

He then told the interviewer to leave the part about 50’s compensation in the article, before sarcastically telling the interviewer to tell 50 that Ross sends his congratulations.

“Make sure you put all these details in. I’ll never let you interview me again if you take that out. Keep it. But, look I know he made $250K off the whole season, and that’s good. Tell him I said, ‘Congratulations.’”

Ross was then asked if he would ever try out acting.  “There ain’t enough money in acting,” Ross replied. “Your man made $250K for the season doing that. That little season, STARZ TV shit. What channel is it really? … He should’ve just went REVOLT. Just go REVOLT next time. Tell Curtis I said, ‘Go REVOLT.’”

You can check out the full interview below.

50 Cent and Snoop Dogg’s “Murder Was The Case” Series Gets The Green Light

snoop dogg

A couple of months ago, 50 Cent shared that he wanted to bring Snoop Dogg’s infamous 1993 murder case to television. Now, it seems as if the show is making its way there.

50 announced yesterday that the upcoming series Murder Was The Case will be heading into pre-production after being greenlit by the Starz network.

“‘Murder was the Case’ is an incredible story. Snoop had the biggest album in the country and was fighting for his freedom in the courtroom,” 50 said in an Instagram post. “The only place to go on this incredible ride is with G-Unit Film & Television. I’m excited to be working with Snoop to bring it to television.”

He added “This is going to be Bigger than OJ […] I mean @snoopdogg Bigger than Tropicana. I believe This will break all viewership records at STARZ.”

Fif will serve as an executive producer on the series as well as Snoop Dogg and his wife Shante Broadus, Sara Ramaker from Snoopadelic Films, and Anthony Wilson from Lionsgate Television.

Snoop also shared his excitement about the upcoming series.

“I am excited to finally tell the story of ‘Murder was the Case’,” said Snoop. “This was a pivotal moment in my life and career and I’ve deliberately waited until I found the right partner to bring this to the screen. You are now about to witness the strength of street knowledge.”
