50 Cent is plotting his next TV series. On Thursday (Nov. 11), the Queens native revealed his plans for a new show about Snoop Dogg’s murder case, for which Tha Doggfather rapper was acquitted in 1996.
“I’m afraid this is going to be a problem for everything on TV,” 50 wrote on Twitter along with photos from Snoop’s trial. “A moment in time (MURDER WAS THE CASE ) when the dream you have been wishing for feels like a nightmare. You think you know you have no idea.”
So far, the Long Beach native hasn’t publicly commented on 50’s plans for a show. The pair recently worked together for 50’s “Black Mafia Family” series, in which Snoop stars as Pastor Swift. The Starz show also features Russell Hornsby; Demetrius Flenory Jr., who plays his father Demetrius Flenory; Da’Vinchi; Michole Briana White; La La Anthony and more, including an upcoming cameo by Eminem as White Boy Rick.
Snoop previously starred in a short film about his trial called Murder Was the Case in 1994. At the time, Death Row Records also released a soundtrack for the film, which shot up to No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
Both Snoop and his bodyguard were arrested on first and second-degree murder charges in relation to the 1993 death of rival gang member Philip Woldemariam. However, they were later acquitted on all charges due to self-defense and reports of negligence within the Los Angeles Police Department.
In other 50 Cent news, the “Many Men” MC made headlines earlier this week after an episode of his “BMF” show was accidentally leaked. Starz admitted that episode No. 7 of the series, which 50 directed, was released early on the platform due to a “technical glitch.”
“This is not ok, when I get uncomfortable, I make everybody uncomfortable,” 50 reacted at the time, adding that the episode was supposed to air on Nov. 14. “Now, who [is] getting fired? Until you figure that out, don’t call my phone respectfully.”
