50 Cent Signs $150 Million Deal With Starz

This man know he can make some money moves! G-Unit is currently in development on two series for Starz: Black Mafia Family and Vanguard. Jackson also remains an executive producer of Power, though he’s no longer appearing onscreen since his character died in season five.

“When I sat down with Chris [Albrecht, CEO and president of Starz] and walked him through my plans for G-Unit Film and Television going forward, he let me know I was essentially requesting the biggest deal in premium cable history,” Jackson said. “I am excited to announce that we’ve made that partnership between myself, G-Unit Film and Television and Starz/Lionsgate, and we will continue our proven track record of breaking records and delivering unique content for audiences around the world.”

(Complex) 50 Cent continues to take the title of his first album to heart. The rapper-turned-producer just inked a massive four-year overall deal with Starz. With this deal, Fif will seek to continue the development of his G-Unit Film & Television, Inc. imprint by creating scripted and unscripted content for the network. Per network sources, if 50’s future projects succeed, then the deal could potentially be worth a maximum of $150 Million.

And, of course, he wouldn’t be 50 Cent if he didn’t take the news to Instagram.

50 Cent executive produces Power, which has shattered nearly all of the network’s viewership records on its way to becoming Starz’s most popular show ever. After the character he played took a pretty big L last summer (spoiler), 50 Cent is getting ready to direct an episode in the upcoming sixth season.
