50 Cent Could Be Retiring From Music
Rapper 50 Cent might be hanging up the mic and retiring from the music industry.
While appearing on The Talk Friday (Jan. 28) to promote his latest Power Book series, Power Book IV: Force with Joseph Sikora, Fif gave some insight into a cryptic Instagram post that he made back in Dec. 2021, where he hinted that his next album could be his last.
“I probably think I’ll deliver another full length album and then the other things that I do will be connected to film and television in a different way,” he shared on the daytime talk show. “I’m cool; I’m having so much success in this area that I have opportunities to keep releasing music through projects that I’m bringing out.”
The entertainment mogul's latest single “Power Powder Respect'' is the theme song for the fourth Power spinoff, Power Book IV: Force, premiering on Sunday (Feb. 6).
The Grammy Award-winning rapper’s Dec. 2021 post created a bit of buzz when the 46-year-old teased that his music career could be coming to an end.
“Smile my next album might be my last,” he captioned the post. “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.”
Right now, it’s safe to say that Fif has his hands full with his television ventures including the Power Book franchise and co-producing another scripted STARZ series based on Snoop Dogg’s 1993 murder trial.
BET previously reported that 50 Cent had the top three TV shows in Black households to kickoff 2022 with BMF, Power Book II: Ghost, and Power Book III: Raising Kanan.
