Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is knee-deep in the world of film and television. The success of Power has led to four spin-off series. In addition, he is also the executive producer of the rising Starz series, BMF. Not to be forgotten, he also has a boxing original series in the works at Starz. With all of that going on, he is apparently still finding time to record new music. During a recent sit-down with Billboard, Jackson revealed that he has been in the studio with Nas, Dr. Dre and Eminem recently.
“He is now working on a studio album with Dr. Dre, Eminem has sent him new songs to collaborate on, and Nas has tapped him for a feature on his forthcoming King’s Disease 4. And after a string of one-off shows and a subsequent international run last year, 50 is also planning to tour domestically for the first time in 13 years,” Billboard Deputy Director of R&B/Hip-Hop Carl Lamarre wrote.
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson isn’t stopping there. He is also set to perform at this year’s Lovers & Friends festival alongside Mariah Carey, Usher and many others.
“The guy’s a machine; he always been like that from the block to now,” Tony Yayo told Lamarre.
“That’s the meaning of Get Rich or Die Tryin’. We got rich — and we still tryin’ to get more money.”
