50 Cent is taking his talents to Houston, Texas. The Queens native revealed in a tweet on Tuesday (May 4) that he recently moved to the city and posed for a photo in front of Houston’s Astrodome.

“I Love NY, but I live in Houston now,” he wrote. “I’ll explain later. Green Light Gang BOOM.”

The Houston Chronicle reports that a new TV series could be what brought 50 to the Lone Star State. In his tweet, the 45-year-old rapper also included a screenshot of an article about his next television endeavor, “Confessions of a Crime Queen.”

According to Deadline, the upcoming series is a true-crime anthology that will highlight the stories of real women who created and ran successful criminal empires and their dramatic demises. Deadline reports that each season of the show will focus on a different female crime lord, who will be portrayed by an A-list actress who will also interview the real woman that the show is based on.

“Confessions of a Crime Queen” will include a mix of documentary and scripted scenes and will reportedly stream on Discovery+. Casting is currently underway and the show is expected to launch next year.

Along with Discovery+ and 50’s G-Unit Film & Television, Goodbye Pictures and Lionsgate are also attached to the project.

“As G-Unit Film & Television continues its rapid growth, we have to think outside the box and challenge ourselves to tell entertaining and important stories in new ways,” 50 Cent told Deadline. “With the support of Discovery+, our friends at Lionsgate TV and in partnership with top producer Rich Bye and Goodbye Pictures, we have the right team to help us continue pushing the creative envelope. I am thrilled to add ‘Confessions of a Crime Queen’ to the G-Unit Film & Television slate in 2022.”
