New York rapper 50 Cent has some serious bragging rights when it comes to television. The hip-hop star has reminded fans why he’s not your average entertainment executive.
Fif went to Instagram Tuesday (April 24) to reveal what type of major stats he’s produced with hit series “Power” and “The Oath.”
Earlier in the day, buzz developed over “The Oath” coming back for a second season.
On the heels of The Oath‘s successful debut last month, Sony Crackle has ordered a second season of the crime drama series created by Joe Halpin and executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.

“Our audience has truly responded to this authentic, raw, and compelling series,” said Eric Berger, chief digital officer of Sony Pictures Television Networks and general manager of Sony Crackle. “Thanks to Joe, 50 Cent and our stellar ensemble and production team for bringing this powerful story to life. We look forward to taking the next step together.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
