50 seems to be putting his money where his mouth is — he posted a video burning a Gucci shirt and says he’s donating all of his Gucci to the homeless because he won’t wear the brand anymore.
Jay makes use of clippings from Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Meek Mill, and even Kimora Lee Simmons to make his point. One screen also featured a collage of 50 Cent’s mug shot while another featured Jay-Z’s own mug shot. Nicki Minaj’s own likeness was used during a tour stop and Nick gushed over what seems to be an honor on Instagram, writing “When Jay asks for your mug shot for his tour backdrop.”

50’s latest remarks symbolize a change in direction from the antagonistic comments he’s made about the network on social media.
In late July, 50 threatened to leave Power for the second time after the show’s creator, Courtney A. Kemp, revealed that some of the storylines for the fourth season had to be cut since STARZ refused to greenlight two extra episodes, despite Kemp’s wishes.
How much of 50’s antics are just part of his well-known troll persona on social media is still up for debate, but either way, he knows how to stir up interest in the show.
Despite the seemingly hostile relationship between 50 Cent and STARZ, Power continues to be a hit with audiences across the country. Earlier this year it was revealed that Power was second only to HBO’s flagship show Game of Thrones in terms of premium cable show ratings. The premiere episode of Power’s third season racked up 2.26 million viewers — the highest ever for the STARZ network.
50 Cent reportedly is no longer involved with EFFEN Vodka.
He’s been hard at work with other projects, such as the TV show “Power” in which he plays a character by the name of “Kanan.” He’s also reportedly creating new music in the studio, due for release before the end of 2017. Keep your eyes out for new 50!

Marvel Comics has issued forth a new series that pays homage to classic hip hop album covers by reinterpreting them with superheroes from the Marvel Universe. Featuring tributes to artists from Wu Tang, Lauryn Hill and De La Soul, to Dr. Dre and 50 Cent.
The history of hip-hop artists and rappers and their comics-tinged influences includes Ghostface Killah, who named his debut solo album Ironman and uses the alias Tony Stark (for performances, we assume), as well as fellow Wu-Tang member Method Man going by the name Johnny Blaze, a.k.a. Ghost Rider’s alter ego. There’s also British DJ MF Doom, who borrowed part of his moniker from Fantastic Four villain Doctor Doom, and rapper David Banner, who took inspiration from the Hulk TV show.
