Starz was recently chastised by 50 Cent after an embarrassing editing error.
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson Jackson is one of the entertainment industry’s most outspoken celebs. The Queens-born rapper has never been one to hold his mouth since his debut in the early 2000s. He’s maintained his no-nonsense demeanor as he’s moved into film and television production, and he’s not afraid to ruffle a few feathers. Since 2014, 50 Cent has served as an executive producer on the successful Starz drama series Power. He’s now working on Power Book II: Ghost, as well as the future spinoffs Power Book III: Raising Kanan, based on his Power character Kanan Stark’s adolescent years, Power Book IV: Force, and Power Book V: Influence.
When it comes to the Power Universe, 50 Cent is a true believer in the franchise, and he isn’t afraid to call out Starz when he thinks their work isn’t up to pace. In fact, he recently chastised the network for a blunder in editing.
Is 50 Cent the owner of Starz?
In 2014, 50 Cent teamed up with Power creator Courtney A. Kemp to bring the series to the small screen on the Starz network. Power follows Omari Hardwick as James “Ghost” St. Patrick, one of New York’s most powerful drug lords who was trying to get out of the business. In the years after, 50 Cent and Kemp have launched four more spinoffs.
Despite the fact that 50 Cent does not control Starz, he has a lucrative partnership with the network. He reportedly inked a four-year overall deal with the network in 2018 worth up to $150 million.
With the success of Power Universe and a slew of new projects on the horizon, 50 Cent and Starz seemed to be a match made in heaven.
