The Unit head previously issued a statement on the connection between his “Big Rich Town” music video and the show.
“For me the musical component of ‘Power’ is so important; I wanted to let the music speak to the viewers as they are watching the show and being able to create the theme song, ‘Big Rich Town,’ was crucial as it sets the tone of the show. The audience will also get the chance to hear additional music off my latest album, Animal Ambition, as the theme of the album translates into events portrayed in the show,” shares Executive Producer Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson (Statement)
