50 Cent Threatens To Leave STARZ: They Suck, My Deal Is Over – I’m Out!
It looks like 50 Cent isn’t too pleased with the STARZ network!
The 46-year-old rapper/entrepreneur is threatening the network, claiming that his contract is up and he’s leaving. On Tuesday (March 1), 50 Cent (born Curtis Jackson) kicked off the month by threatening STARZ, claiming that he is packing his bags and moving on, in a string of Instagram posts. He first shared a video of a man packing his suitcase and captioned the post,
“This is me packing my stuff, STARZ. Sucks, my deal is up over here I’m out. They renewed High Town, and FORCE is the highest rated show they have sitting in limbo. If I told you how much dumb sh*t I deal with over here, you would think they all went to school on a small yellow bus.”
In four additional posts–each displaying an image of someone packing and leaving with suitcases–50 Cent continued his rant against the network.
“Hold my calls i’m traveling, getting the f*ck away from STARZ.”
“Anil get your f**king bag’s in the car now, we are out of here, take that f**king sign of the door no more G-unit film and television over here… Josh hurry the f**k up, get all the scripts we out!”
He ended with,
“Michael what the f**k are you taking so long for, let’s go! Why are you folding all of your clothing so perfect, we can just get new clothes when we get where we going.”
There is no denying that 50 Cent has helped made the STARZ Network extremely successful over the years. From the original Power– which lead to the Power Universe, cranking out multiple spin offs– to Black Mafia Family, executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has been instrumental in the network’s recent success. It’s unclear what sparked this rant against STARZ, seeing that just hours prior, he shared the successful stats of his time with the network. In an Instagram photo of himself standing in front of a private jet, he shared screen shots of his stats at the network.
“G-Unit Film & TV produces the Top 4 series in African American households (Force, Ghost, Raising Kanan, BMF). BMF was the biggest direct to consumer premiere via the Starz app. Force was the biggest premiere for Starz in the network’s entire history. Total of 21 shows across 9 different networks. 8 shows produced/in production/greenlit to production in 2022 increasing to a minimum of 10 in 2023.”
