50 Cent Is Trying to Buy Starz’s ‘Power’ Universe
50 Cent Is Trying to Buy Starz’s ‘Power’ Universe.
50 Cent is about to leave the Starz network permanently. Since the premiere of Power in 2014, the executive producer has worked with Starz. Since then, he’s worked on Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Power Book IV: Force, and BMF, among other projects. Despite the fact that 50 Cent’s series are the most popular on the network, his relationship with Starz has remained tense.
For years, 50 Cent has been dissatisfied with Starz.
50 Cent has publicly voiced his dissatisfaction with Starz since joining the network in 2014 for the premiere of Power. When Starz wanted to schedule the series on Saturday, he admitted that he had to fight for it to show on Sunday. He’s agitated by leaked episodes, production schedules, and a slew of other issues.
He recently publicly criticized Starz CEO Jeffrey Hirsch, claiming that after the premiere of the Force Season 1 finale, none of the Power programs will air on the network for the next six months. Now he wants to make a big change.
50 Cent is attempting to acquire Starz’s ‘Power’ Universe.
It appears like 50 Cent is pondering his next move with his television business. On April 12, he posted a video of a UFC fight to Twitter. “Everybody ready to work, I’m trying to buy my universe back from STARZ so it goes where ever I go,” he stated. “Only 5 months left in my deal, and I’m not on the air for 6 months so We Out!”
Still, it’s improbable that Starz will sell its most successful series to 50 Cent. After all, the shows are the most popular not only on the network, but also on cable.

He’d been having dull moments for long with Starz
I feel he’ll record more successes if he runs the series independently.
