50 Cent Tyler Perry

50 Cent swiftly checked a media outlet for suggesting he was “at odds” with Tyler Perry after launching G-Unit Studios. 

50 Cent may be following in Tyler Perry’s footsteps, expanding his entertainment empire with his G-Unit film and television studios, but Fiddy’s making clear they aren’t rivals. 

G-Unit Studios in Shreveport, Louisiana, reportedly became the second-largest Black-owned production studio in the world after Perry’s Atlanta studio. However, this doesn’t mean the executives are at odds. In fact, according to 50 Cent, it’s the opposite.  

On Monday (June 17) 50 Cent took to Instagram with a clarification after The Root published a headline that read, “50 Cent Gearing Up To Be A Tyler Perry Rival?” he shut down the notion in no uncertain terms. 

“Yes,” he began before adding a trio of clapping emojis. “I’m doing great but you’re getting it fvcked up, if you think me and Tyler will be at odds at any point. He’s helping me, already going out of his way to aid my progress. So in the nicest way cut the s### !”
