G-Unit's 50 Cent is headed to the small screen with reports claiming he will appear on the SyFy network's "Dream Machines" reality show series later this month.
Not only appearing in the series, Fif will have his own dream vehicle created.
The rapper-actor will appear in the April 10 premiere of Syfy's new reality series "Dream Machines," The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively. "Dream Machines" revolves around Florida-based brothers Marc and Shanon Parker, owners of Parker Brothers concepts, and their crew as they take vehicles seen in film, TV and comic books and turn them into realities. Each hourlong focuses on a high-profile client or organization commissioning the company to create a one-of-a-kind "dream machine." (The Hollywood Reporter)
Along with the premiere, Fif will also be featured on the series' second episode.
Mr. Jackson will appear in the first two episodes of the series, as his request fell nothing short of extreme. In the episode titled"50 Cent's Jet Car," 50 asks for a Formula One race car with a futuristic space ship exterior. His request comes at the expense of brother Shanon's phobia of flying when the duo took to a dog-fight in actual jet-fighters to get inspiration for 50's new whip. Then, to make things even worse on the Parker bros, 50 moves the deadline for the completed vehicle up, jeopardizing the usable success of his design. (RapFix)
Outside of television, the rap star is currently preparing the release of an upcoming new LP.
"My album is coming out july 2. I got some heat trust me I'm ready," Fif tweeted March 20th.
"My birthdays july 6 so that's a cool date for ME. Its gonna be july2 album, july4 independence day, then july6 my birthday." (50 Cent's Twitter)
Last December, 50 revealed some producers fans can expect to hear from on the LP.
"Production-wise, man, I got some Boi-1da joints," 50 said. "I did some stuff with Alex da Kid. I worked with [Eminem]--well, he didn't actually produce the record this time, but we worked together. On the record, we recorded a few joints. I worked with Frank Dukes, and he came with some pieces for me this go-round." (XXL Mag)
