When President Biden announced raising taxes on people who made over $400,000, 50 Cent complained. In New York, 50 Cent would have been taxed about 62%. Texas is one of the few no-state taxes.

The other no income tax states are Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Tennesse, Washington, and Wyoming.

50 Cent grew up in New York City and loves the fast scene.

These days, 50 Cent is staying busy.

The rapper and movie producer finished a six-season show on the Starz network called The Power. Over the years, The Power has received several awards such as The Image Awards, The People's Choice Awards, NAACP Awards, and the Women's Image Network Awards.

A trailer was recently released for the Power follow-up. Power Book III is expected to be released this summer.

50 Cent has been busy with the ABC series “For Life.”

He recently started working with Discovery + to create Confessions of a Crime Queen. This is a true-crime series under 50 Cent’s G-Unit film and television Banner. The series covers a larger-than-life woman who runs a multi-million-dollar criminal empire who falls from power. No information was made if the show will be produced in Houston.

Discovery+ is delighted to partner with Curtis, G-Unit Film & Television, Goodbye Pictures and Lionsgate on this ambitious and innovative project,” said Lisa Holme, Group SVP Commercial Content and Strategy, discovery+. “Combining our unparalleled home for original true crime content with his vision for how to tell these stories in a new way will give true crime fans a fresh perspective on the genre.”
Curtis is an incredible visionary and powerful creative voice,” said Lionsgate Television Group Chairman Kevin Beggs. “We’re excited to partner with him and his team again on another great series, and we’re also proud to kick off our partnership with discovery+ with our first collaboration together.”

Last year 50 Cent released the book, Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter.

Personally, I read the book and thought it was very well written with a lot of inspiration.

San Antonio is slowly opening up as the vaccine is getting distributed. COVID cases are still spreading, so ensure you continue to take the proper precautions.
