Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has been making power moves since he came into the rap game. From music to business and now in Hollywood, he steadily ups his big boss man status. He is currently working on a new television series about the drug trafficking organization Black Mafia Family.
And he just got the nod from currently incarcerated B.M.F. co-founder Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory to put together the TV show of the notorious group. 50 posted a letter to Instagram said to be written by Big Meech. The message included the author praising the Queens mogul’s other work such as the Starz drama Power.
But as in usual 50 fashion, nothing comes without conflict. The development of the project led to an online wrestling match between 50 and film producer L.T. Hutton who supposedly has the film rights to the B.M.F. story and is behind the upcoming Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me, is upset with Fiddy because he’s making a film about B.M.F.
Hutton apparently doesn’t want anybody else developing a project about the legendary crime family. Of course, 50 being 50, he went on his Instagram page and called L.T. Hutton a “MC Hammer wannabe” and said that his television series is a go–whether Hutton likes it or not.
