50 Cent signs a new multimillion dollar with STARZ that will see him sticking around at least until 2019.
The full details of the deal is not yet known but multiple reports confirmed that its in the 8 figures. The deal is for at least two more seasons of Power and three additional shows including “Black Family Mafia” and “Tomorrow, Today.” Those two shows are currently in development, but the third one is not yet announced. This is in sharp contrast to what we were hearing from 50 Cent during the summer while he was telling Power fans to unsubscribe from STARZ because of some issues he has been having with the premium network behind the scenes.
“Still think I’m NOTHING? Ok watch what I do now. I’m just getting started, you know I’m a nightmare for a HATER. #denofthieves,” 50 Cent wrote on Instagram. Yesterday, the rap legend took shots at his former foe Jimmy Henchman who was recently convicted for killing a former associate of G-Unit. “No your honor I have no idea who that was shooting back at jimmy Henchmen,but I do know that guy Jimmy’s a Rat. LOL,” he wrote.
December has been a good month for the Get Rich or Die Tryin’ rapper who won a big court case earlier this month involving Power. The rapper was sued by two men who claimed that he ripped off their idea for a play they wrote called “Danagerous.” 50 Cent eventually won the case with the judge pointing out several different TV shows and movies with a similar storyline including Breaking Bad, Empire, Narcos, Scarface, and more.
50 Cent currently has much to celebrate and it seems like he is looking to conquer the TV business with even more shows that he currently have in development. His show on BET, 50 Central, is also doing well.
50 Cent promises that his next move will shock you.
The rap mogul has been conquering Television and the big screen in the past few years but it sounds like his best is yet to come. 50 Cent is one of the most commercially successful rappers of all-time with his debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’ selling close to 10 million copies in the United States to date and has been certified 6× platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Not many rappers have achieved that amount of album sales from just one project.
Following the release of the album, 50 Cent went on to star in his own movie Get Rich or Die Tryin’ (film) released in 2005. The film chronicles 50 Cent life from before fame where he was shot 9 times in Queens, NY in 2000 and survived. The biopic raked in $46.4 million at the Box Office.
50 Cent is now using that fame to push his career in acting and television production and so far it’s been working very well for him with his show Power being the second highest rated series on premium cable only behind HBO’s Game of Thrones. So this announcement peaks everyone interest to know what is he coming out with next. “I’m gonna shock you all with my next move, I’m focused this year coming is gonna be so much fun. POWER, BMF, Tomorrow Today, 50Central. #Frigo,” 50 Cent wrote on Instagram.
Since making the statement on IG, Fiddy has not given any additional details on what’s next for him, and he has not made any additional posts since then. Last week, he hinted that he wants to get actor Gerard Butler on Power, but says he will have to come up with a bigger budget. We also know that he signed a new deal with STARZ over the summer after complaining about the network.
