US rapper 50 Cent is to give away £50,000 of his own money on a new US reality TV show '50 Cent: The Money and the Power'
50 Cent is to give away £50,000 of his own money in a new US reality TV show.
The 'In Da Club' rapper will star in '50 Cent: The Money and the Power' in which he shares lessons he learned from his time 'hustling' on the streets with 14 contestants.
The hit maker - real name Curtis Jackson - will explain how growing up in New York helped him to become the mogul he is today, before setting the contestants challenges to test what they have learnt.
The hopefuls, who will also be quizzed on their 'street knowledge', will then eliminated until only the winner remains. The show, which will push the contestants to their limits, is being billed as a hip-hop version of 'The Apprentice' - where hopefuls battle it out in the business stakes for a job in a high-powered organisation.
Special guests who will appear on the show include rappers LL Cool J and Lloyd Banks and US radio personality Miss Info.
'50 Cent: The Money and the Power' premieres in the US on November 6.
