Rapper 50 Cent has expanded his horizons. Now, 50 Cent’s latest endeavor includes a huge film studio.
Also known as Curtis Jackson, 50 Cent expanded his empire with a new 985,000-square-foot studio for G-Unit’s film division.
The hip-hop mogul showed it off on Instagram Saturday, unveiling the space and posting the video as he is seen posing in the studio.
“Well, would you look at here,” Jackson said in the video. “985,000 square feet. Can you say G-Unit studios?”
Earlier this month, the Queensbridge rapper expressed his regret in finding success at Starz, which has showcased several hit series produced by 50: Power and Black Mafia Family are the big ones.
On Twitter, Jackson reflected on the success he’s had at Starz, saying that he wished he’d made his TV universe at a different network. Additionally, he revealed he will not produce any more BMF shows or any other shows on Starz.
“I have the number 1,2,3, and 4 top TV shows in African American, and Latina households,” 50 wrote on his social media. “I hate that I did them with the wrong people. I’m not doing any BMF spin offs or selling any other shows to STARZ."
Jackson began building his ongoing business partnership with Starz when he embarked on Power on Starz on June 7, 2014. The series culminated on Feb. 9, 2020. He would go on to launch three spinoff series: Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kana, and Power Book IV: Force. All the while busy with these shows, he started the biographical drama series, Black Mafia Family, which is based on a crime family out of Detroit.
Fifty first rose to prominence when he debuted his Get Rich or Die Trying album in 2003. This album catapulted his rap career, which allowed him to be among one of the greatest rappers of all time.
In totality, 50 has earned three American Music, 11 ASCAP, two AVN, three BET, one BET Hip-Hop, 13 Billboard Music, 16 Billboard R&B/Hip-Hip, one Grammy, three MOBO, two MTV Video, one Primetime Emmy, three Source, six Vibe and six World Music awards.
