50 Cent is ending his long-term partnership with Starz by opting not to renew his pact with the Lionsgate-owned premium cabler.
In 2018, the rapper turned entertainment mogul inked a massive $150 million overall deal with Starz to develop multiple scripted and unscripted series.
According to Curtis, the pact officially ended on September 17 and he’s excited about what the future holds for G-Unit Film & Television.
50 took to Instagram writing, “09-17-22 official day of really owning my content & deciding where and how I do it moving forward!!!”
“This is my vibe right now! STARZ deal done, we had nothing but success so no hard feelings ??? I’m out. I’ll let you know where we are going shortly.”
50 Cent proudly shared that G-Unit Film & Television’s current slate has over 25 TV shows sold across 10 different networks like Starz, ABC, and Crackle.
“Shout out to BET, I won Hustler of the year. No one from music culture has had success in Television production,” he wrote.
The slate includes hit series like “Power,” “Power Book II: Ghost,” “Power Book III: Raising Kanan,” “Power Book IV: Force,” “BMF,” “The Oath,” and “For Life.”
50 Cent’s decision not to move forward with Starz really doesn’t come as a surprise considering the fact that he often made his grievances with the network publicly known.
He clowned Starz for continuity issues on “Run The World,” he has blasted them for the schedules of his shows, for removing episodes, and for renewing “Hightown” before “Power Book IV: Force.”
The big question is where is 50 Cent taking the shows he created?
Kash Doll, who stars on “BMF,” commented on one of his posts writing, “Where we going? F**k Starz then. ?”
I guess we’ll have to wait and see what Fiddy’s next mogul move will be.
