50 Cent has released a preview of his new podcast Surviving El Chapo: The Twins Who Brought Down a DrugLord.
The upcoming podcast is based on the real-life story of Chicago-born identical twins Peter and Jay Flores who were responsible for taking down the infamous Mexican crime boss, Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, aka El Chapo.
Set to stream on the iHeartRadio app and other platforms on October 19, Surviving EL Chapo will give listeners an in-depth perspective of the inner workings of the notorious criminal enterprise.
“After two successful prison escapes and three arrests, Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán is finally behind bars in the United States,” the podcast’s synopsis reads. “But it wasn’t easy to finally capture the most prolific and dangerous drug lord. In the end, it took twin brothers from Chicago to bring down the powerful Cartel dealer – and they’ll pay for it for the rest of their lives.
“Produced by Lionsgate Sound and Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson’s G-Unit Audio in collaboration with iHeartPodcasts, Surviving El Chapo: The Twins Who Brought Down a Drug Lord dives into the incredible story of the Flores brothers.
The synopsis continued: “Speaking publicly for the first time ever with co-hosts Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson and investigative journalist Charlie Webster, Chicago-born identical twins Jay and Peter Flores let listeners into how they went from dealing $2 billion worth of drugs across the country as North America’s most successful cocaine traffickers to government informants who brought down the infamous drug lord, ‘El Chapo.'”

50 Cent will host produce the eight-part series along with journalist Charlie Webster.
The G-Unit mogul took to Instagram to share a preview clip of the podcast. “This is the first time the twins speak, they moved over 130 tons of cocaine and heroin. This story is wild, It’s just a different level. This is going to be the New NARCOS,” he wrote.
The series, which follows real estate entrepreneur Caesar Pina as he manages his family-run property company, will be produced by 50 Cent’s G-Unit Films and Television banner, Fly on the Wall Entertainment, and Lionsgate TV.
According to the South Jamaica, Queens native, he doesn’t want to drop it the traditional way, and instead, possibly release it in parts as a companion piece to one of his many TV shows.
