The G-Unit mogul recently launched The BMF Documentary: Blowing Money Fast on STARZ and Hip Hop Homicides on WE tv. He’s also teaming up with DJ Envy on an upcoming reality series to be featured on the A&E network called Property Players.

Viewers will be taken behind the scenes as the crew flip houses for large profits, while mentoring other celebrities and their communities about real estate investment.

Property Players will be produced by 50 Cent’s G-Unit Films and Television banner, with Fly on the Wall Entertainment and Lionsgate TV also on board. A&E Networks currently holds the worldwide distribution rights to the series.

50 is in an interesting position now that his deal with STARZ — which houses his Power and BMF series — is complete. 50 is reportedly fielding offers from several companies looking to team up with him on the next chapter of G-Unit Films and Television.

Even though the STARZ deal is finished, Power is still cooking on the network, with Power Book III: Raising Kanan just completing its second season. BMF‘s upcoming season two will premiere in January 2023.
