50 Cent will investigate infamously unsolved murders in hip hop history in his new show, “Hip Hop Homicides.” According to Deadline, the rap star will executive produce the unscripted WEtv series via his G-Unit Film & Television.

“G-Unit Film & Television has thrived by telling real stories,” 50 said in a statement. “As I continue to grow my current slate, premium non-scripted programming will be a major focus. Hip hop loves things that are damaged. This series will shed light on the artists that didn’t make it through the struggle.”

“Hip Hop Homicides” will also be co-produced by Mona Scott-Young’s Monami Productions and Lionsgate Television.

“50 and I created this show in response to the disturbing number of murders in hip hop,” Scott-Young explained. “With this boots-on-the-ground investigative series, we will look to closely examine and explore leads surrounding these cases with the hope of finally providing loved ones with answers.”

The eight-part series will be hosted by Van Lathan, who also co-produced the Oscar-winning short film Two Distant Strangers. According to Deadline, “Hip Hop Homicides” will premiere later this year on WEtv and the streaming service ALLBLK.

“We’re proud to collaborate with Curtis again on a powerful project in the unscripted world alongside our incredible producing partner Mona,” president of Lionsgate Nonfiction Television Craig Piligian said. “’Hip Hop Homicides’ is an eye opening reality series that will captivate and move audiences and we’re excited we found the right partners in WEtv.”

“These are important stories that will be told by an extraordinary producing team we couldn’t be more excited to be working with,” Lauren Gellert, head of original programming and development for WEtv, added. “We look forward to shedding new light and attention on cases that have grown cold over time, with the potential for resolution and closure for those involved.”
