50 Cent is up to something.
On Tuesday (October 1), the rapper turned business mogul shared a behind-the-scenes look at his next television show, which is based on attorney Issac Wright Jr's life. "My New ABC show is intense,I filmed yesterday I’m still bugging 🤦♂️ I gained 15 pounds for this role," 50 captioned an Instagram photo showing him posted up inside a prison.
However, instead of focusing on his upcoming project, fans took the opportunity to question the Power executive on rumors he's acquired the rights to make a film about Tekashi 6ix9ine's on-going legal battle. "tr3way 6ix9ine movie," a fan wrote. 50 then replied to that fan's comment: “I’m working boy.” Given the fact that 50 neither confirmed or denied the rumor only added to the rumor mill with many asserting that his response meant that 50, at the very least, is thinking about it.
As fans know, 6ix9ine, who was a friend of 50's before he was arrested by the Feds earlier this year, acted as a government witness, testifying against his former crew, the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods last month. When the 23-year-old rapper took the stand in a Manhattan federal court, he not only named names — he alleged that Jim Jones, Cardi B, Trippie Redd, and many more artists are all gang affiliated — he also revealed his role in the gang, admitting that he made money for Nine Trey that was distributed among Nine Trey members in order to have their protection and garner street cred. All of which, led to the "FEFE" rapper being exiled by many members of the rap community.
However, 50 empathized with his former friend's situation while on Real 92.3's Big Boy's Neighborhood a few weeks ago. When 50 was asked what he thought of the 23-year-old rapper's alleged "snitching," he replied, "I don't even know how to explain it [...] Under those circumstances, I can identify with how he was feeling."
"When you find out that Shotti [Tekashi's former manager, who was sentenced to 15 years in prison for gun charges in September] is sleeping with your baby mother and angry with you enough to kill you. He's not from that," 50 said, referencing the rumors Shotti slept with 6ix9ine's daughter's mother before allegedly setting him up.
"He's completely alienated. There's no way out of it," 50 added of 6ix9ine's possible thought process. "You can sit in jail for the rest of your life or for 20 years of your life, and support and be loyal to guys that were sleeping with your baby's mother and getting ready to attack your mother. "
