On Wednesday (March 8), the Paper Route Empire rapper took to Twitter and retweeted a clip featuring the opening scene to the video game showing the G-Unit boss giving a rundown of his crew consisting of Lloyd Banks, Young Buck and Tony Yayo.
In his tweet, Glizock kept his request plain and simple telling 50 that he and a group of other video game fanatics need an updated version of the iconic video game.
“Ay @50cent we need a newer version,” Key Glock wrote.

50 Cent: Bulletproof was released in November 2005 on Playstation 2 and Xbox. Although panned by critics, the game was a hit with fans and sold 1.1 million copies. It was praised for its in-game music that included actual 50 Cent songs and its deep storyline that focused on the rapper taking revenge against the hitmen that tried to murder him.
A sequel titled 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand was released in February 2009 on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Despite being a major improvement from its predecessor, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand sold an estimated 56,000 copies in the United States which wasn’t enough to guarantee another installment in the series.
Fans thought 50 Cent was going to jump into the video game space once again with an announcement he made earlier this month. The rap mogul sent fans into a frenzy by sharing the logo for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the Miami Vice-inspired video game that dropped in 2002.
In his caption, Fif hinted at working on a television series claiming the project would be even bigger than his Power universe on STARZ.
“I will Explain this later, GLG. GreenLightGang,” he wrote cryptically. “this shit bigger than POWER trust me. BOOM.”
However, 50 debunked those rumors when he announced plans for his next original series titled Vice City, which he’s developing in collaboration with Paramount+ and Lionsgate Television.
Vice City reportedly “follows three friends, and former soldiers, who return to their home city of Miami in the mid-’80s after being dishonorably discharged from the military for their involvement in the Iran Contra scandal.”
