“Shout out to BET, I won Hustler of the year,” he said while counting stacks of cash. “No one from music culture has had success in Television production. I have 25 shows now and I’ve made some big deals away from TV. I’m out of my deal at STARZ tomorrow.”

According to trademark attorney Josh Gerben, 50 has filed a series of trademarks through his NYC Vibe, LLC for the rights to “Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson.”

His plans are to produce TV shows, movies and documentaries while also launching an online casino and opening restaurants.
