50 Cent Lands TV Show Deal With Comedy Central

50 Cent says he's sold another TV show and adds Comedy Central's name to the announcement.

50 Cent has sold a TV show to Comedy Central, according to the rapper. 

"I bet a HATER will get tired of hating. Before I lose passion,I just sold another TV show,COMEDY CENTRAL #smsaudio #power," he said. 

The rapper currently has Power, a show airing on Starz TV. The show's star, Omari Hardwick, recently spoke about 50's involvement on the set of the series. 

"It was pretty amazing," Hardwick said. "He's tried... and proven in other parts of his life, as a mogul, as a Rap artist. It was really interesting for me to see him take on the executive producer hat of a show like this. He had done producing before...but to see him be active and take my phone call on the dime...If I'd call and go, 'We really need you on the set today.' We have an incredible cast, so it wasn't just me, it would be me speaking for the cast and going, 'Folks need your energy today.' And he'd be down in like 30 minutes. He was really active...He's great to work with."

    Comedy Central airs shit like The Bob Saget Roast lol STARZ isn't a major player either. If that bum show draws 2 million people it gets renewed. HBO? lol Who has HBO in 2014? Curtis can't land the big deals. That's obvious.

    Let's be clear. It's Comedy Central. Not TNT. FX, or a major network.

      are you kidding? Comedy Central is one of the biggest networks... don't try to downplay his sucess. He also has a show on Starz. One coming on Fox and another with HBO in the works so suck on that.

    I think 50 Cent is one of the world's greatest artist. He consistently make great power moves while The GAYME stays losing. GGG-UNIT forever! I'm not impressed

      A rhetorical question is a figure of speech in the form of a question that is asked in order to make a point.[1] The question, a rhetorical device, is posed not to elicit a specific answer, but rather to encourage the listener to consider a message or viewpoint. Though classically stated as a proper question, such a device may be posed declaratively by implying a question, and therefore may not always require a question mark when written. Though a rhetorical question does not require a direct answer, in many cases it may be intended to start a discussion or at least draw an acknowledgement that the listener understands the intended message. A common example is the question "Can't you do anything right?". This question, when posed, is intended not to ask about the listener's abilities, but rather to insinuate a lack of the listener's abilities. Although sometimes amusing and even humorous, rhetorical questions are rarely meant for pure, comedic effect. A carefully crafted question can, if delivered well, persuade an audience to believe in the position(s) of the speaker.[2] In simple terms, it is a question asked more to produce an effect than to summon an answer.

    What core fanbase did he ever have? Because we gotta go to the 1st single and look at the mixtape numbers before the first studio album, what if it's 65-70k? To think he had 8m plus core fans and its dwindled to around 100k is f#ckboy logic, he was selling music before shady

    business wise he's winning, but musically he's losing his core fanbase. Animal Ambition shows that, he went double wood. you can't be a business man and a rapper, it just doesn't work.

    Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour.

    Curtis always has a bunch of projects keeping him going for a little while longer, but what percentage of them are actually successful? Besides vitamin water and the headphones doing...meh, moderately well... almost everything he's gotten into has failed. The clothing line, the sneakers, the artists he signed, the books, the straight to dvd movies, the video games, the reality game show, etc. The stuff he's doing now will fail too, no one cares about the 50 Cent brand in 2014. I guess that's why he has to do this other stuff. I mean, he doesn't have the musical talent to stay relevant in hiphop and he has to make money some how. I'm not impressed

    • I'm not impressed

      You people commenting are the biggest Shitty Cent fans I have ever seen in my life. I bet you all have the attention span of a cockroach and will most likely watch the first 5 minutes of his show before watching some other carbon copy show like America's Got Talent or Rising Star. And if I had a show,, it would definitely have a lot more viewers than 50s. I have much more talent in one of my butt hairs than Shitty Cent does in his whole body. I'm not impressed

    • This nigga above me has n0 $

      "I bet a HATER will get tired of hating. Before I lose passion,I just sold another TV show,COMEDY CENTRAL " Yo its crazy how despite this quote the hater guy is still here writing bigger comments than the 50 stans. Thats fucking sad man...

      " You talk about the few successes he's had but he has had way more failures with that shitty label of his." I could say the same thing about The Roc, Bad Boy, MMG, YMCMB... "Regarding the books, no one knows about them, no one cares about them, they didn't sell shit." Books that don't sell shit don't get on the NYT Bestsellers List.

      in the time it took this nigga to type that hating ass comment Godfather 50 earned more than Not Impressed will earn all year! " I guess that's why he has to do this other stuff. I mean, he doesn't have the musical talent to stay relevant in hiphop and he has to make money some how. " No one gets to the top 5 on the Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Kings list selling cds. Thats why Dre is selling headphones, Jay-Z is pushing Samsung phones and 40/40 club, Diddy got Revolt and Ciroc, and Birdman has GTV Vodka, Trukfit etc...

      Young Buck and Banks haven't been out for years and they only have like 2 or 3 albums a piece in an 11 year period. lol Tony Yayo has one. Their first albums sold off the strength of buzz from Curtis' first album, nothing more. It wasn't good business skills or an eye for talent, they were just riding the hype train the same way Curtis rode Eminem's hype to have brief success. What about Mobb Deep, or Olivia, or MOP, or Kidd Kidd, or Precious Paris, or Hot Rod or Spider Loc? You talk about the few successes he's had but he has had way more failures with that shitty label of his. Regarding the books, no one knows about them, no one cares about them, they didn't sell shit. Now remove his dick from your anus. I'm not impressed

      Impressed or not, you are not doing anything in life but following another man and worrying about his success. That makes YOU a loser regardless of what 50 Cent does. Dude is making millions and you think it's cool to be the judge of that...crab in a bucket syndrome.

      " The clothing line, the sneakers, the artists he signed, the books," The clothing line was hugely succesful for a few years. The artist's he signed including Young Buck and Banks both went platinum. Yayo sold over 800k! He's a New York Times Best Selling Author fuck boy, talkin bout his books weren't successful! HAH.

    I always thought Godfather 50 should branch out into comedy. Those skits he did on Jimmy Kimmel were super funny. I liked the Zero Dark Fifty one where he hunts down Osama Bin Laden in a storage locker.
