This time, Fif trashed the network for rejecting a series on NFL Powerbroker Nicole Lynn, which he still plans to sell.

The poor network can't seem to escape Curtis Jackson's wrath, does it? This time around, 50 Cent blasted Starz for passing on an NFL Powerbroker series on league agent Nicole Lynn. For those unaware, the 34-year-old recently had the biggest moment of her career so far, nabbing her client Jalen Hurts (quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles), the biggest annual average deal in NFL history at $255 million. Moreover, 50 took to Instagram to claim that the network originally funded the show's development, but then backtracked. With that in mind, he loaded up some more Instagram shots.

"Nicole Lynn is no joke i told STARZ, they didn’t listen," 50 Cent wrote in his IG post. "They paid for development then had a change of heart. Now you know i’m gonna sell this show in no time. GLG GreenLightGang bullseye i don’t miss." Before leaving Starz in September of 2022, the "P.I.M.P." MC ran various hit shows like "Power" and "BMF." However, this February, he signed a deal with Fox for future on-screen project in partnership with his G-Unit Film & Television production company.

50 Cent Trashes Starz Once More

"I am excited to formalize a partnership with Michael Thorn and FOX that will allow G-Unit Film & Television to focus on putting multiple series on FOX, a perfect broadcast destination for G-Unit Film & Television content while our premium, streaming, scripted and non-scripted slates continue to grow in all directions," he expressed in a statement. Last time he blasted Starz, 50 Cent expressed regret in seeing such success with "the wrong people."

"I have the number 1,2,3, and 4 top Tv shows in African American, and Latina households and i hate that i did them with the wrong people," he expressed on social media. "I’m not doing any BMF spin offs or selling any other shows to STARZ." Regardless of that soured relationship, it certainly won't stop 50 Cent from continuing to make massive moves in the entertainment space. In fact, he just nabbed a new series development deal with Hulu for a redemptive tattoo show with ex-gang and hate group members.
