“50 Cent” Goes From Rapper To Producer

Posted on June 14th, 2013 at 12:58 pm

Celebs at The Grove for "Extra"50 Cent isn't just a rapper... He now holds the title as one of the executive producers for Starz next drama series, Power!

The show's storyline focuses on a wealthy New York City nightclub owner who wants to build an empire, but also leads a double life as a powerful force in New York's drug world.

Born and raised in New York, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson told Deadline Hollywood that producing this show has been a "passion project for him."  Executive Producer, Mark Canton said, " Curtis wanted to do a modern family drama and a show with music as intergral component."

Curtis has been writing songs, and even though his main responsibility is to produce, there is a possibility he will be starring on the series which will begin production later this year. 

Curtis is also executive producing an animated comedy presentation somewhat based on his childhood at Fox.

Way to go 50, we are so proud of you!
