50 Cent’s partnership with STARZ was a game-changer in the television industry. The rapper and businessman birthed “Power,” “PowerBook II: Ghost,” “PowerBook III: Raising Kanan,” and “Powerbook IV: Force” and BMF.
And many credit 50 Cent with rescuing the fledgling network single handedly. Well Media Take Out learned that the executives at Starz don’t quite see it that way.
Now, 50 Cent has announced that his time with the network is soon coming to an end. In an Instagram post, he shared that his deal with STARZ officially ends on Sept. 17.
So what does 50 have next in store? Well, Media Take Out did a bit of digging, and we may have some insight into his next big move.
His STARZ chapter may be wrapping up, but the business moves won’t stop.
According to trademark attorney Josh Gerben, the “Hustler of the Year” has filed multiple trademarks under his NYC Vibe, LLC.
The filings suggest that 50 Cent is possibly set to open bars and restaurants, launch an online casino, and organize sports competitions and events.
And he’s not leaving TV either. Media Take Out confirmed that 50 will be a part of the production and distribution of television shows, documentaries, and movies.
This year, 50 Cent has secured multiple NBA franchise deals for Sire Spirits, his premium wine and spirits company. In March, the Houston Rockets was his first official deal, a multi-year partnership.
