“I have a show on Fox My Friend 50 and a program that I’m working on right now with A&E, 50 Cent Presents,” 50 told People. “I hate to call it a variety show because it’s different than the things that people have seen in the past, but it’s a weekly program that has live sketch comedy and live music. It’s a lot.”

50 did not provide more details about the series, but 50 Cent Presents appears to be following in the tradition of other sketch comedy programs such as Saturday Night Live, In Living Color, and Chappelle’s Show. He later added on Instagram, “I’m only getting better at what I do. Wait till you see my new show on A&E.”

The G-Unit leader’s business ventures encompass music, online media, television production, liquor, and clothing. 50 Cent also acts on Power, and he appeared in the 2015 boxing film Southpaw.

    Get that bread 50. Haters wanna see u down and out like them. Keep grinding.

    • Keyser Soze

      Real shit…

    • RapItUp

      I don’t think that’s necessarily true.. People just get tired of 50’s antics. I could say the same for Kanye, people hating on him and he still pulling in chips. People get tired of the antics. Flashing money for the gram while in bankruptcy proceedings, the relentless Empire bashing (promo), the Ja Rule hypocrisy.. On top of it all, the lack of music. Nobody hates on his business moves. They just want him to slow up all the meme-schiz and drop some tunes

      • BigHomie337

        Nah, majority of ppl come to hate on 50. I just like seeing another brother be successful. Him flashing money while he’s going through a bankruptcy case shouldn’t upset anyone because it’s his situation not theirs. I’ve never seen so many ppl worrying bout another mans pockets as much as they do on posts about 50. Black Jay Supreme gonna show up to h8e b4 the day is over. I’m just not the type of dude to care so much about another mans personal life.

      • Savimbi

        Couldn’t say the same for him, as he went on pretty lengthy hating campaign against Diddy and Ciroc to get effen going.

      • Gasner Duke-Diesel

        50 my nigga but you’re right. I dont like when he hates on diddy. He can sell effen without putting diddy down all the time.

      • Anthony Mason

        The way he looks at it is he needs to down the other black guy selling vodka.All 50 wants to do is steal from Circoc marketshare…..

      • Gasner Duke-Diesel

        Right. I like 50 but I always had a problem with him attacking other blacks. If diddy was white he wouldn’t have no problem with ciroc. Im he can still compete but atleast do it in a nicer way. To be fair to 50 though this dude has a street mentality and hard to change his way of thinking.

      • Nyga07

        Lol 50 is mad petty no lie but he broke it down best, I have no problem with those ppl I just compete with the brand, I attach myself to the marketing dollars. He just broke pimping lol cuz he had no marketing budget, he said he did the same exact thing with power and empire on purpose. If you peep all the new and old artist been borrowing 50 moves, Ross , thug, even Meek. Kanye has a great idea brewing right now, if he do it right he became bring hip hop back. I’m a sit back and watch, man all these big artist should get hip hop back they have the platform, we shall see. Happy Friday everybody!

      • Savimbi

        No doubt i definitely agree. You’re right about Kanye, his marketing strategy and release for TLOP was pretty innovative. The exclusivity might bring hip-hop back to the proper hands.

      • Nyga07

        yeah bruh I was sitting back like ohhh i see the vision, put everybody on, make hip hop bigger again, every body eats, demand grows, sale grows, like look at kanye the mad genius.. he has a rant problem, but shiddd everybody has something about them no one likes, im pretty annoying myself lol

      • Gasner Duke-Diesel

        Well said. But I hope 50 can take your advice too cause he do be hating on other ppl like diddy for no reason and thats coming from one of 50s biggest fan.

      • BigHomie337

        I agree with u. Diddy doesn’t even acknowledge him. Effen isn’t in competition with Ciroc. Not even on the same level as Ciroc. He should focus on marketing Effen more than just hating on Puff to elevate his liquor.

      • RapItUp

        I don’t think him flashing dollars upsets people.. Lol but it definitely takes away from the legitimacy of his bankruptcy proceedings and makes him look inferior to his peers. I see you guys touched on the Diddy topic, so no need to go there. 50 do be hella hating though, but like most of these industry guys, take the good with the bad. I’m probably one of only cats on the board with War Angel and Forever King on iTunes. Oo, and I purchased Curtis. Lol so I’m def. no 50 hater. As for BJS, lol let’s see if he makes his way here and you’re right. Haha

        **edit, he showed up, and showed love! Lol

    Cool

    Still waiting on kanan reloaded

  • Markus

    50 with the diversifying portfolio. Good look.

    • ZUBU

      Yeah Bro, 50 getting it in! Some dudes be hating on him so much… Acting like he fell off the rap game, but who needs rap when you making moves like this… Rap just a stepping stone for him, much like the street hustle was a stepping stone into the rap game… This shiitt is Chess not Checkers… Look at Dre… He don’t need rap, at all…

      • Bruh…. Did you just compare 50 and Dre? Come on…. Y’all acting like that dude just signed another vitamin deal. 😂😂😂. Dude has some pilots in play. That’s it. When they get picked up for a season then y’all 50 fans can do backflips. Until then, it’s just an investment. Not income. Trust me, he lost money on these 2 shows. Y’all cats kill me. 😂😂😂

      • ZUBU

        Bro look at what 50 is doing: 20 years ago only for the most part Spike Lee, Robert Townsend, Keenan Ivory Wayans, and a few other brothers were putting anything on TV or the movies. Now we got a young street brother making major moves… He really came from the bottom up, I don’t agree with everything he does but I respect the hustle…
        ——————-
        50 didn’t have no dad in his life; his mother got killed when he was young; he is not well educated…. This brother came from the bottom up….

      • Bruh. I hear what you’re saying but please…. Stay focused. These moves into television are commendable for 50. It’s a good look. It places him firmly on the right path. But don’t try to amp it up like this dude invented the wheel. To put this into perspective, 50 Cent got two deals for his pilots. Nice. Great. But you know who else got deals for their pilots? About 8 or 9 people who only had to show a network their vision. And most of those people have no business funding, no world famous name to drive interest, and no venue to promote. We’re talking about regular Joes off the street who probably have crazy student loan debt and are living off of Ramen noodles before they sold that idea to the networks. So put into that perspective, 50 ain’t f*cking special. In fact, 50 is doing what rich people normally do against the poor. He used his name and the success of Stars to get his deal. Meanwhile, those other cats used pure talent to get theirs. I’m not saying that 50’s technique is even wrong. But he’s damn sure not worthy of all the high fives and dap y’all dudes are slinging his way. Not when 8 or 9 nobodies did the same thing. It’s a pat on the back at most. And that’s just real spit.

      • Markus

        Now I can’t lie,brother. I’ve said that his career in music seems to have run its course in the past. And that’s not from hatred or envy. It’s just from looking at his numbers and the type of music he makes now. That’s why it’s good to see dude move into another field of entertainment he can thrive in hopefully.

  • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

    It kills me how successful this guy is. I mean, it really drives me crazy. I was happy when I found out he was going through bankruptcy. But then when I saw that picture of him spelling the word BROKE with money it put a huge damper on my weekend.

    • Anthony Mason

      Bruh….come on….

      • RapItUp

        Troll game at all time low

      • takin over the carter

        hahaha

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        I’m not trolling. His success makes me unhappy. At least I can admit that.

      • Anthony Mason

        How as a man does that make you unhappy? He bleeds just like you. Go get it…

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        Why ? I don’t want success. I want others to be unsuccessful

      • Anthony Mason

        You are wild as hell bruh. I don’t know what to say to that….

      • Drake’s 3rd best Ghostwriter

        I was just being an ahole. I was being dead ass about his kid though. People can’t tell when im being for real or not, i’ll tell them then. lmao

      • Anthony Mason

        What is wrong with the little guy?

      • Anthony Mason

        People who are unhappy based on the success of others are bottom dwellers. Your troll game is -100,000,000,000,000,000,000 upvotes…..

      • Hahahahaha…. Ethered!

      • Uncle Ruckus

        Well, I thought this was funny if nobody else did. Have a glass of haterade on me

  • Good luck to the dude. But I think people are forgetting the fact that these are “pilots” and the networks probably paid him 50k for both of these shows in the beginning. So when you factor in all costs, he’s probably lost money on these so far. But that’s not forever. If it gets picked up and put into heavy rotation, that is when 50 could cake up. Nonetheless, it’s still a good look for dude. Let’s hope they succeed.

    • Uncle Ruckus

      All money that should be going to that CO’s baby mother for exposing her acting ability. Anyway….

  • Uncle Ruckus

    It amazes me how it’s taken this long. I always said this dude and Jadakiss have charisma and personality to do comedy

    • Anthony Mason

      So does Camron and even Gibbs. I can’t mess with niggas who have no sense of humor.

      • Uncle Ruckus

        Yh, a person with no sense of humour would probably murk you if you messed with them. Gibbs as in Freddie Gibbs? I never checked for that dudes music. Cam comes across as a nice guy who tries to act hard al the time. Pre Dipset he seemed like a sound guy but I think the buzz they got went to his head until Tru Life gave him some of that act right.

      • Anthony Mason

        Yes gangsta Gibbs….

  • Anthony Mason

    How many black rappers have gone diamond certification in the history of hip hop?

    Uh huh…..
