50’s Show Gets The Axe

According to Livesteez, word just hit the street that MTV said, “F*ck a Fifty Cent,” and canceled his show:

It looks like Donald Trump’s words have come back to haunt 50 Cent after all, as the rapper’s reality show has been cancelled. The Queens native attempted to jump on the reality show band wagon with “50 Cent: The Money and the Power,” which was shot in Brooklyn, but wasn’t as successful as his counterparts Sean “Diddy” Combs and Donald Trump who had similar on-air dramas. “It will fail because he’s not Trump, but he’s actually a nice guy,” the business magnate said in a November interview. After only six episodes, the MTV series appears to be the victim of poor ratings and lack of buzz. 50 Cent: ‘The Money and The Power’ featured 14 hopefuls competing to win a $100, 000 investment from 50 to start his or her own business venture. The show’s aim was to discover the next hip-hop mogul among 14 wannabes – ranging from an 18-year-old youth counselor, who describes himself as “grandma’s little hustler,” to a guy whose family owns six businesses and raps, “I’ve got more ladies than 50’s got Mercedes. But 50’s failure doesn’t signal the end of the reality road for the network, which said last week it has 16 new series in the works, according to the NY Post. “Our new shows will feature themes of affirmation and accomplishment,” says Brian Graden, MTV Networks’ vice president of entertainment.

“Our shows are going to focus less on loud and silly hooks and more on young people proving themselves.”

This is ironic, because just a few weeks back  50 Cent was talking about Nas’s run in the game being over. A canceled show is like an obvious tell in a poker game. So we advise 50 to quit on all the no-sense business ventures, save that money, and go ahead and throw his hand in.

    Since his ape face, mush mouth, rabbit teeth ass is always hating on someone else I’m glad his show got canceled..Between his failed album, and t.v. show maybe he’ll see he’s not on top like he think he is.

    hahahhaha…That show sucked….because It shouldnt always be about the money….

  • Truth

    So Sad the result of being able to impress the hood by making money and because the hood has low standards it doesn’t take much more. But once you hit the point of mingling with people who have money; they aren’t easily impressed by you just having money and being marketable to a low standard generation. Remember they already have money so there must be another reason for them to respect you. When they don’t the the soul dies and desperately looks for a power source. This is what most rappers face, never believe the hype.

    @Re.. lol. Hey it’s cool to not agree sometimes, that’s how you open yourself up to learn… or teach. But I didnt like the show, it’s sooo unoriginal. for me, it was like watching diddy all over again. The pauses, the dramatic music, him trying to act uber hard. The wimpy people begging to be his flunky. nope not for me. lol

    LOL! The show used to turn me off, cause 50’s idea of dismissing people off the show, he would say, “Get the f*** outta here.”

    LOL!!!!! That is so unprofessional! But the show gradually became better….

    First the show was called win a date with 50. Then they had to change the format because there were no applicants. Well there were two applicants, a transvestite and a transexual who applied.
