New York rapper 50 Cent wants fans to r-e-l-a-x. The “Power” executive has promised big things to come from an upcoming spin-off series.
Big Facts: Last night, Fif hit up his social media pages to plug the upcoming “Power Book II: Ghost” series and vowed pure lit’ness is on deck.
High-Key Details: Last Saturday, Fif announced his “Power Book III: Raising Kanan” would add actor Omar Epps to its cast.
Wait, There’s More: Speculation had initially developed on Omar’s mystery character.
While no specific details of Epps’ role are known, the House vet is playing a major figure in the Power cannon, I hear. Being that Raising Kanan is the only Power spinoff to take place in the past, it is pretty clear whoever the Brooklyn-born Epps is portraying will have reach in the mainly New York-set world of the franchise. Reach that could stretch, one way or another, to the Mary J. Blige-led and Method Man, Michael Rainey Jr., Shane Johnson and Naturi Naughton starring Power Book II: Ghost, the Larenz Tate-led Power Book IV: Influence and the now L.A.-based Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) driven Power Book V: Force.

Before You Go: Earlier in the week, 50 revealed the cast of his upcoming “Power Book II: Ghost” series.
