More About 50 Cent
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has carved out a thriving television and film career as both a best-in-class producer and star. In 2005, he founded G-Unit Film & Television Inc., which has produced a wide variety of content across numerous platforms, and sold a myriad of shows to various networks. Among these is the critically acclaimed No. 1 show on Starz, “Power,” in which he not only co-starred in, but also served as executive producer and director.
He has successfully focused on expansion of the “Power” universe with spin-offs ‘’Power Book II: Ghost,’’ “Power Book III: Raising Kanan” and “Power Book IV: Force.” G-Unit Film & Television also produced the ABC hit “For Life,” “Black Mafia Family” for Starz, and recently released the “Black Mafia Family” docuseries.
Earlier this year, Jackson announced a non-exclusive multi-project development deal with FOX. G-Unit is also in development on the scripted series “Fightland” and “Queen Nzinga” at Starz and “Trill League” at BET+, “Untitled” at Paramount+ with Chad Stahelski attached to direct, and a Nicki Minaj starring vehicle “Lady Danger” at Freevee. Recently released from G-Unit Film & Television is “Hip Hop Homicides” at WeTV.
Jackson is also expanding into the podcast space through his new G-Unit Audio banner with the debut of “Surviving El Chapo: The Twins Who Brought Down a Drug Lord,” in partnership with iHeart Media and Lionsgate Sound. The company is also building out its feature slate, starting with a three-picture horror deal as a collaboration with horror phenom Eli Roth and 3BlackDot; and “Expendables 4” upcoming with Millennium and Lionsgate.
The exceptional businessman serves as CEO of G-Unit Records, which he founded in 2003, and has since signed a host of multi-Platinum artists.
Jackson continues to extend his brand, which encompasses a broad spectrum of businesses, including Sire Spirits, which Jackson formed in 2016 a luxury wine and spirits company that owns Le Chemin du Roi Champagne and Branson Cognac. In April 2020, Jackson released his second New York Times Best Selling self-help book, “Hustle Harder Hustle Smarter.” Additionally, in January 2020, Jackson received a Star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame, as well as being awarded an NAACP award for Best Director in a Drama Series.
