The power of 50 Cent has yet to expire. Nearly two decades past his entrance into rap domination, the Queens-bred hip-hop legend, entrepreneur, actor and mogul has staked his claim as a television maverick. To applaud his success, the accomplished entertainer graces an XXL digital cover with several actors he’s helping turn into TV stars. This includes Michael Rainey Jr., Mekai Curtis and Joseph Sikora, all from 50’s Power Universe, and Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr. from BMF.
Fif’s role as TV creator and executive producer began with the show Power in 2014, which he launched on Starz with cocreator and executive producer Courtney Kemp. The successful series, which ran for six seasons, has since launched three spinoffs including Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan and Power Book IV: Force. Fans just caught the first-season finale of Raising Kanan and are gearing up for the second season of Ghost and the first of Force. In the meantime, viewers can currently catch 50’s newest show on Starz, BMF, a.k.a. Black Mafia Family.
