50 Cent has once again proved his dominance in making game changing moves by purchasing a 985,000 square foot studio building.
On Saturday (April 29), the G-Unit mogul uploaded a brief video of him standing in the bare space while discussing the major investment.
Well, would you look at here,” he said in the video. “985,000 square feet. Can you say G-Unit studios?”
He captioned the post by saying, “GLG [traffic light emoji] GreenLightGang G-unit film & TV [Bomb emoji] BOOM [Wind emoji] I need room to work [shrug emoji] I don’t miss [Bullseye emoji] [Television emoji] will never be the same.”

50 Cent’s small screen dominance is in part thanks to record-breaking shows such as Power, Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Black Mafia Family (BMF), and Power Book IV: Force, all of which fall under his production company, G Unit & Television Inc.
Fif recently unleashed an onslaught of criticism toward STARZ which is home to all of the aforementioned shows.
On Saturday (April 22), 50 Cent called out STARZ for dropping the ball on his NFL Powerbroker series, claiming the network “paid for development” and then “had a change of heart.”
According to the Daily Mail, the series centers on the life of NFL agent Nicole Lynn, who despite being a figure in pro football backrooms for several years, recently had her biggest moment when her client, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, signed the biggest annual average deal in league history, worth nearly $255million.
The G-Unit mogul took to Instagram to voice his frustration with the TV network, noting in the post that while he was disappointed with the outcome, he still plans to “sell this show in no time.”
“Nicole Lynn is no joke i told STARZ, they didn’t listen. They paid for development then had a change of heart. Now you know i’m gonna sell this show in no time. GLG [traffic light emojis] GreenLightGang bullseye [target emoji] i don’t miss #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi,” 50 Cent wrote in the post’s caption.
With that said, it’s probably no surprise that the G-Unit honcho said recently he “hates” that he found huge success with STARZ in the world of television as his relationship with the premium network has soured.
Taking to Twitter earlier this month, 50 Cent gave himself a pat on the back as he claimed to have the one through four top shows for African-American and Latin households in the country, but clarified he’s not creating any spin-offs or new series with STARZ.
I have the number 1,2,3, and 4 top Tv shows in African American, and Latina households and i hate that i did them with the wrong people,” he tweeted. “I’m not doing any BMF spin offs or selling any other shows to STARZ.”
Another show 50 Cent is working on is one that will give former gang members and hate group affiliates a second lease on life.
According to Deadline, Redemption Ink is in the early stages of development with 50 onboard as an executive producer under his G-Unit Film & Television division.
Contestants will look to leave their troubled histories in the past as they detail their poignant journeys while covering up gang tattoos connected to their former life and look toward a second chance at redemption in the future
