There are few rap beefs as storied as 50 Cent’s notorious decade-long frivalry with The Game. Now the former G-Unit honcho’s fallout will be explored in a new hip-hop anthology series set to air on Starz with the New York rap icon at helm.
50 Cent has been busy expanding his Power universe, with the first of three Power spin-offs, Power Book II: Ghost, recently rolling out, and now it’s just announced that he has inked a deal with the television home of his popular series for more shows. On Monday (September 14), The Wrap reported that the rap mogul inked a deal to develop two new series.
Tentatively titled Moment in Time: The Massacre, The Wrap reported that the anthology series “will explore the true stories in which iconic hip hop moments collided with the sensational and sometimes criminal events behind-the-scenes.” The first season will explore his 2005 feud with The Game that spiraled into vicious back-and-forths that famously resulted in a shoot-out at one point. The anthology series will also spotlight music mogul Jimmy Henchman. Henchman, who formerly managed The Game, is currently serviing life behind bars for the murder of a G-Unit affiliate in 2009.
In addition, 50 Cent is developing a second, as-of-yet untitled drama series inspired by the true story of sports agency attorney Nicole Lynn, who was the first Black woman to represent a Top 3 NFL Draft pick. The series will follow a Black female sports agent’s rise up the ranks of “the highly-competitive and male-dominated world of sport agents,” per The Wrap.
Both series will be executive-produced by 50 Cent.
