50 Cent Feature On XXL Magazine

50 Cent’s clout isn’t going away anytime soon. The hip-hop mogul, businessman, and actor has established his position as a television eccentric for two decades after his climb into rap dominance.

Congrats 50!

50 Cent headlines an XXL digital cover with numerous actors he’s supporting in their transition to television stardom to celebrate his achievement. This features Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr. from BMF, as well as Michael Rainey Jr., Mekai Curtis, and Joseph Sikora from 50’s Power Universe.

In 2014, 50 Cent debuted as a television writer and executive producer with the Starz series Power, which he co-created as well as executive produced with Courtney Kemp. Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, and Power Book IV: Force are three sequels from the popular series, that also lasted six seasons.

Raising Kanan’s first season finale has recently aired, now viewers are anticipating the second season of Ghost and the first of Force. Meanwhile, audiences watch 50 Cent’s newest series, BMF, (Black Mafia Family) streaming on Starz.

50 Cent, the rap artist mogul, is now bringing in a new era of A-list stars through these titles as well as a bevy of additional projects.

“I think that they should expect them—(Lil) Meech, Michael (Rainey Jr.), Mekai Curtis, and Tommy (Joseph Sikora)—for them to be superstars following this,” 50 adds throughout the photoshoot, that occurred in September at The 1896 Studios & Stages in Brooklyn.

Stars that have shined since being on the show

Tariq St. Patrick, a young adult who becomes deeper into the life of a hustler, is played by Michael Rainey Jr. in Power Book II: Ghost. Rainey Jr. refuses to squander the chance to flourish as a Black actor when discussing his character.

“We have our shows that are based around us and our characters,” he shares. “So, all of that stuff pushes us to all work harder and just keep coming out swinging and do better every episode.”

Additionally, Mekai Curtis is another actor who has gotten a huge break in Power Book: Raising Ranan. He portrays the younger version of Kanan—most television’s fearsome gangster, played by 50—in Power Book III: Raising Kanan.

Mekai Curtis pays homage to 50 Cent as well. “You saw something and turned it into a hit, “50 Cent is told by Mekai Curtis. “Everything you come into contact with turns to gold.”
