Entertainment mogul Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is about to have another hit tv series on his hands. MTO News has learned that 50 Cent purchased the rights to Tekashi 6ix9ine’s life story – and he plans on making a mini-series out of it for Starz.
50 has become one of the most respected power players in Hollywood. And his new show about Tekashi 6ix9ine is getting major backing from the network.
The rap legend created Starz’ highest-rated show in history, Power. And the network plans to launch a bunch of other shows by 50 in the near future – with Tekashi 6ix9ine’s life story being one of them.
Yesterday, 50 Cent’s rival French Montana spilled the tea on 50 purchasing the right to Tekashi’s life story. The two were beefing on the Gram, and French was attempting to insult 50 by breaking the news. But it backfired.
Instead of making 50 look bad – fans thought 50 was a genius for purchasing the rights to Tekashi’s life story. French wrote, “TELL THE WORLD HOW YOU PAYED FOR THE RIGHTS TO TEKASHI 69 LIFE STORY ! YOU THOUGHT I WASNT GOING FIND OUT …. NOW WHY WOULD YOU GO AND DO THAT !”
MTO News reached out to folks at Starz, who confirmed that they are working with 50 to make Tekashi’s life into a mini-series. It’s not clear whether they officially signed a deal with 50, but it’s clear that they are DEFINITELY interested in working with 50 to produce the series.
