These days 50 Cent is much more about TV and film projects. After 50 recently shot down any talk of participating in a VERZUZ, the media mogul is showing that there is some love for music left when updating fans on his Street King Immortal album.
Speaking with The Independent, 50 revealed that album will not be released, instead, he will turn to a new collection of music with the aim to drop it in September. “That original version is not [being released], but I’m releasing new music in September,” 50 said.
As far as additional details? There aren’t many. 50 did say he won’t reveal who the features are because he is the “most exciting person” on the album.
While on a press run for Power Book III: Raising Kanan, 50 Cent revealed that VERZUZ will not be in his future.
“A Verzuz battle? Probably not,” 50 said. “We back outside. That was something that happened during the pandemic when we was stuck in the house. Now that we back outside, there’s other things to do. We supposed to be creating new history, not being back there.”
Michael Blackson is passing on his gems to DaBaby when it comes to 50 Cent.
Since 2019 DaBaby has been one of Hip-Hop’s breakout superstars. Last Summer he captured his audience with arguably the Song of the Summer in “Rockstar” with Roddy Ricch. In 2019, he launched his mainstream career with “Suge.” The Grammy-nominated hit spawned a successful major label debut in Baby On Baby. He then followed up in latter half of 2019 with Kirk.
With his success and superstardom, DaBaby has collaborated and bumped shoulders with the biggest artists and celebrities in the game. Over the past week, he has spent time in New York City, attending the ESPYs, teaching kids the value of honesty and more.
Last night he attended the screening premiere of Power Book III: Raising Kanan. A number of stars were in attendance. Afterwards, DaBaby hung out with 50 Cent and Power cast.
When the “Bop” rapper posted his pic with Fif, Michael Blackson was sure to give him a fare warning in the comment section.
“Last time I was at the same place with 50 I ended up owing him money, DaBaby don’t take no money if ya at the strip club, wrote Blackson.
The African King of Comedy certainly had flashbacks of his encounter with 50 and owing him money. Blackson and a hand full of others were pressed by “Fofty” at that time period.
“Power” executive producer and New York rap legend, 50 Cent, has yet another show in the works. Vixen Cuban Link‘s bae has dropped the must-see trailer for his next project based on the Black Mafia Family and viewers are beyond excited. 50 Cent’s BMF Trailer Is A Must See Only days away from the premiere […]
After a long-awaited release, 50 Cent took to IG to premiere the trailer for the BMF series, which is slated to debut on the Starz network in September.
“The real s*** just hit different, @lilmeechbmf Green Light Gang,” captioned Fif.
In the trailer, Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory, who is played by his son Lil Meech, along with his brother Terry “Southwest T” Flenory launch their drug trade operation which expanded the Black Mafia Family into one of the largest drug empires ever in the United States.
50 Cent has morphed from being one of Hip Hop’s top contenders to being one of television’s most sought-after producers and directors. Sitting down for an exclusive interview with his own ThisIs50.com platform, Fif delved into his Raising Kanan spinoff series as well as his upcoming show about BMF, the drug empire ran by Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory.
50 did not announce a date for the BMF release, but he did announce that there is a soundtrack in the works for the series ad that he had to remove one artist from the soundtrack who had real-life ties to the Black Mafia Family; Young Jeezy.
When speaking about Jeezy on the soundtrack, Mr. Jackson said, “I got 42 Dugg. He already sent something, him and Jeezy on the record. I like it with 42 Dugg, though. He don’t really need Jeezy, you just need 42 Dugg. I’m trying to convince him to take that n**** off the record and just wild because his s*** is hot. The other s*** we can do without that s***.”
Power Book III: Raising Kanan was already renewed for a second season ahead of the series premiere on July 18th.
The prequel is a coming-of-age series centered around Kanan Stark, who mentored Ghost and Tommy and was ultimately set up to be killed by Tariq St. Patrick.
“One season isn’t enough to tell the coming-of-age story of Kanan Stark and his mother, Raq, a fierce and successful woman who is a force of nature,” said Jeffrey Hirsch, President and CEO of Starz. “The anticipation globally for more of the Power Universe made it clear that the Kanan story needs to continue.”
Mekai Curtis stars as Kanan along with Patina Miller. They will be joined by Omar Epps, London Brown, Malcolm Mays, Hailey Kilgore, Joey Bada$$, Toby Sandeman, Shanley Caswell and Lovie Simone with Quincy Brown recurring.

Rap and film mogul Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson plans to produce a new TV series where new talents of hip-hop will compete against each other for the top spot.
Currently, the show Unrapped is in development with ABC and will be executive produced by 50 Cent’s G-Unit Film & Television company and SFO Entertainment. Antonio Collier, Jon Sheinberg, Susie Ursitti Sheinberg, Gwen Osborne, and Matt Feige will also assist in making the new show.
Unrapped will basically be the hip-hop’s, American Idol. The show’s format will have celebrity contestants, coached by iconic hip-hop mentors, go head-to-head in rap battles until a king or queen is crowned. Not sure what the winner will receive, but lookout for a casting call soon.
“I am excited to expand my relationship with ABC,” 50 told Deadline. “Unrapped brings G-Unit Film and Television’s ability to put incredible music and musical talent on screen to the competition space.”
50 has already executive produced ABC drama For Life, which Disney canceled after two seasons.
Although we are used to 50 making gangster drama shows, Like Power and Power Book II, Jackson launched his G-Unit Film and Television company with reality TV in 2013. He initially introduced us to his reality series Dream School for Sundance TV. The show followed the lives of high school dropouts that celebrities guided to their path of a second chance.
ABC will be competing with Netflix if it proceeds with Unrapped; the streamer has ordered a second season of its own hip-hop competition format Rhythm + Flow, which features judges Judges Cardi B, Chance the Rapper, and Tip “T.I.” Harris as they search for the next hip-hop star.

Born on this date in 1975, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is undoubtedly one of the most influential forces in the game today. From music to movies to successful business ventures, Fif has always stayed on top of his game ever since he made his unconventional entrance at the end of the last millennium.
What has always kept 50’s name in the people’s mouths is the fact that he always had someone else’s name in his! Not to be confused with the common studio gangster, 50 has not only survived, but remained triumphant and relevant after all of his beefs.
Here’s a short list of some of Fif’s most mentioned beefs in and out of the studio:
1. Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff
This beef between street soldier and kingpin became a story reminiscent of David and Goliath, with 50 Cent battling the most feared gangster in his Jamaica, Queens hometown. This riff was depicted in 50’s blockbuster film Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. The real ending? Fif is a successfull businessman and Supreme is currently in a federal supermax correctional facility for life.
On 50’s first widely recognized track “How To Rob” featuring The Madd Rapper, he creatively spits scenarios about him catching several of your favorite rappers and R&B singers slipping. One of them happened to be the Terror Squad top recruit Big Pun, who didn’t take it very lightly. On Pun’s Yeeeaah Baby! album, he tells Fif on one of the tracks, “I’m gona make a song called ‘How I beat your fuckin ass’…”. Nothing never happened off wax with this beef and Pun passed suddenly on February 7, 2000.
With the G-Unit at the top of the rap tier at the turn of the 21st Century, if you weren’t with them, you and your crew were definitely getting rolled over. The Game, who happened to be the only recruit on the Guerrilla Unit squad that wasn’t from the East Coast, made the mistake by believing that his career would remain afloat without 50. With no help against the barrage of battle records from G-Unit to the unsuccessful “Boycott G-Unit” campaign, it’s safe to say that Fif come out on top of this one.
The Bawse seemed to be the only artist that has even been able to maintain his relevance after beef with Mr. Jackson. Ironically, this beef started over an alleged wrong look at the BET Awards towards Ross. These two traded bars until Fif came out with the “Officer Ricky” track, in which 50 promised told Rozay “Ima fuck your life up for fun’. At the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards in ATL, Gunplay from Ross’ Maybach Music Group allegedly had his chain snatched and Fif was seen wearing the chain days later.
His battle with 50 Cent should’ve been a warning to the rest of the artist who came after him with a problem with the Queens MC. These two were from the same hood, which made the beef that much more personal. While 50 claims that Rule hid behind the protection of “Supreme” McGriff, who was suspected of facilitating the unsuccessful hit on Jackson, Rule maintained a successful career until the continuous physical confrontations and vicious shots proved to be too much for certified platinum Murder Inc. artist. This year, these two bumped heads on a flight, but time must have healed old wounds because the two just greeted each other with a “what’s up” as they flew together.
New York rapper 50 Cent didn’t get the last laugh and isn’t worried about it. The hip-hop veteran has appeared to wave the white flag in a sudden Lil’ Kim and Mr. Papers clashing after getting checked by the couple over a disrespectful meme he shared to the world. 50 Cent Removes Lil’ Kim Meme […]
