According to a recent article in Blavity.com by Ngozi Nwanji. 50 Cent just celebrated his last day under his STARZ contract and is looking forward to owning and controlling his own content.
It’s no secret that ownership is the ultimate goal for creators. Now, 50 Cent is making it clear as he’s shared that he has joined the club.
Hints For What’s After STARZ
As previously shared by AfroTech, the mogul announced that his last day under his STARZ deal was Sept. 17. Around the same time as the announcement came out, it was reported that 50 Cent was already on to his next move.
According to trademark attorney Josh Gerben, he filed multiple trademarks under his NYC Vibe, LLC, which included him possibly producing TV shows, documentaries, and movies. In addition to the production and distribution, the filings suggest that 50 Cent is possibly set to open bars and restaurants, launch an online casino, and organize sports competitions and events.
