50 couldn’t resist the urge to jump on the reality show bandwagon:
Mogul 50 Cent is set to share his entrepreneurial skills next month with the debut of The Money and the Power, his first MTV reality series. The show will feature 14 aspiring moguls living together in a Brooklyn warehouse dubbed “Camp Curtis.” From there, the contestants must work together through a myriad of innovative challenges in hopes of honing their business acumen. Each week, 50 will eliminate a contestant based on how much knowledge they retained from the previous challenge. Viewers will also get to see the contestants interact with other music stars, as special appearances from LL Cool J, Aubry O’Day of Danity Kane, Lloyd Banks, and blogger Miss Info are highlights of the series. 50’s right hand man Tony Yayo will serve as the show’s “Underboss,” making sure the show’s contestants remain in line and focused on the tasks at hand. Even with the television’s wide variety of reality shows, 50 is confident that his series will transcend most shows and illuminate the hard work and sacrifice required to make in it the music business. “If it was just my image, I wouldn’t have made this much money,” 50 stated bluntly of his business acumen and taste.
You gotta give Bugsy his props because he does know how to make his money work for him but, this reality show sounds about as interesting as a G-Unit greatest hits album. Kinda makes you want to avoid paying your cable bill so you don’t even press the wrong channel by accident.
