50 Cent has transformed from one of the biggest rap stars in the world to a television producing mogul. The New York native has created compelling dramas that speak to the demographic his network wants to reach. The ratings continue to reflect his excellent work.

A recent Instagram post by 50 Cent showed off his series’ dominance among African American viewers. Power Book II: Ghost, PowerBook III: Raising Kanan, and BMF are drawing more black households than any other shows on cable television. That is impressive even for a more experienced producer.

“They can’t f*ck with me i’m #1 #2 and #3”

50 Cent brought in an incredible rating of 17.5 in the demographic for Power Book II. Power Book III and BMF came in at 12.9 and 12.8 respectively. Advertisers looking to reach black audiences in huge numbers need look no further than 50 Cent.

The rapper has even more projects coming soon. “Queen Nzinga” tells the story of an African warrior. Fifty is also working on a series about Snoop Dogg’s infamous murder case. The story of 50 Cent’s feud with The Game will also become a television show.

The executives at Starz have to be happy with the performance of 50 Cent’s shows. Fif is certainly thrilled with how things are going. Curtis Jackson could be the next major player in the television game.
