MTV Cancels 50 Cent Reality Show, Cite Poor Ratings

The New York Post has confirmed that MTV will be dropping 50 Cent’s reality show, “50 Cent: The Money And The Power,” due to its low ratings.

Despite Fif’s claims that his show was doing great, it seems as if Donald Trump’s calculations were more on point. As XXLmag.com previously reported the multi-millionaire said that “The Money And The Power” will fail, because it was a rip off of his TV series “The Apprentice.”

While 50’s program was cancelled, MTV has plans for 16 new reality shows to premiere on the network.

This setback isn’t the only blow the Queens-bred rapper has felt recently. His new album Before I Self Destruct, which was supposed to drop this month, was surprisingly pushed back to 2009. – Elan Mancini

  • ri067953

    Yo, I don’t really care for this guy’s music but how is he a failure. He signed a record contract, made hundreds of millions of dollars and is releasing this last album to fulfill his contract. This guy is set for life, he needs to just stay lo-key and bow out gracefully.

    • that nigga

      No, the show waas a failure as well as G Unit as of late.

  • REAL TALK 08

  • BIGNAT

    thats not fair i saw 2 episodes and them joints was funny as hell. they kept switching when it was suppose to come on

  • ruffhuff

    the show failed because its fucking stupid

  • http://www.rapaveli.com Ambition-1

    The show failed because 50 has forgotten where he came from. He thinks he can just move people around like fuckin pawns and shit. Just because you have millions doesn’t mean you’re any different than anybody else. All those bullet proof vests and bullet proof vehicles don’t make you bigger. Biggie said it best… niggas bleed just like us!

    How the mighty have fallen !! I wish no Ill Will on anyone but God Damn !! What happened to him has happened to alot of entertainers. Setbacks and rejection. Now it’s time to see if he can come back to the forefront. 50′s got a little “Cheesy Rat Blues” going on.

    50 is sinking like the titanic. 1st the Curtis album underperformed, T.O.S. totally flopped, and now his reality show got canceled. All we need now is for Before I Self Destruct to flop then we’re finally rid of this guy for good.

    Because of the commercial success his previous shitty albums, 50 probably more than any other rapper contributed to garbage we hear in mainstream rap. It’s time for hip-hop to go through a renaissance where real art flourishes. Getting rid of this white elephant is a significant step in the right direction

  • markamilyon

    HE JUS AINT RELEVANT NOMORE, NO MATTER HOW HARD HE TRIES! HE HAD A GUD RUN, BUT ITS OVER…AT LEAST HE’S RICH!!!

    50 CENT 2002-2006

    WE’LL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU!!

  • Shawty J

    50′s show got canceled, shocker! But MTV is planning on launching 16 more reality shows, WTF?

  • What the ?

    His show was ass, plain and simple, he tried to hard to be the coolest guy on the planet with his arrogance, people don’t like that played out shit.

    I watched the one episode, where 50 challenged that scrawny white kid to a push-up battle, they both did 100 which is pretty good but at the end 50 was like ” yo, son looks like your breathing pretty heavy what’s going on ?” and then if you looked close you could tell 50 was straight out of breath gasping for air, but playing it off like it was nothing, lmfaoo, dude needs to cool out and be humble, no one likes that cocky bullshit no more.

  • balaramesh

    @Knowledgable , you nailed it.

    didn’t fiddy just say that “nas was cold as ice?” that would just about make fiddy a boulder by now.

    a reality show cancelling….. on MTV?!? LMAO!!! thats an alltime low. especially on mtv. even diddy had like 36 seasons of making the band. and the i want to work for diddy. c’mon, bobby brown had 3 seasons on bravo.

    50 is a very successful business man. he need to just focus on other business ventures cause he do not even have enough g-unit stans to keep his show on mtv. he might as well forget about dropping another g-unit or yayo album anytime soon. in addition, he might want to extend his offer back to the game and young buck. that would gain the interest of mainstream public that he basically sold his soul to reach.

  • PRODIGAL SON

    the sad fact is that 50 Cent is ruining his own career through sheer arroganice, he is great at making business decisions, and hell, can even put out a great album when he puts his mind to it (seriously TOS was underrated, top album, made no bones about being anything but a hardcore rap album, and Banks the PLK fucking murdered every joint on there). However, when he gets that cocky attitude and displays it, it doesn’t give a good image. Even if some of the stuff you say is right, doesn’t mean it has to be said, i.e. the Nas business about him being irrelevant… if you are humble and focus on being true to yourself and others, the reward will be people respect you and actually want to listen to what you have to say because it may have relevance and even help influence their lives. 50 just got lazy, plain and simple, when he should have progressed, bringing his lyrics to a greater level of knowledge, he stuck to a formula that was already dried out in a hope to make money. It cost him fans, the biggest loss in my opinion.

    16 new reality shows?its a music network.come on mtv.

  • A

    As Kevin Garnett would put it “What you goin say now?” “What can you say now?”

    50 is whack! Period!

  • G Mack

    50′s done and NAS didnt even ether him lol. He was better off in the mixtape game.

  • macdatruest

    Nigga got a big ass mouth. He didnt let the show play out, he had to treat the contestants like shit. If a nigga talking to me like a dog, making me do dumb shit, wat the fuck is 100,000 to me when the world knows I earned it by letting a nigga prostitute me on t.v. He need more Yayo’s: Niggas you can pay to have no self respect. Buck and Game wasn’t gone play Yayo role. Lloyd Banks was one foot in one foot out. But if Banks leave G-Unit I’ll fuck wit him on his new shit if it’s from the heart. Just cause ya boss is a bitch don’t mean the roster aint talented. I’m bout to coin a new phrase like ethered: 50′s career is officially “Detox” (timed out)

  • willshady

    fuk 50 and the entire g-unit crew. there finished. the only talent they had was game and buck. banks and 50 suck and yayo, garbage

    • tony grand$

      I assume u mean “48 laws of power”. But which law xactly?
      Anyhoo…..
      That show sucked. I sat & watched all episodes & can easily see what happened. It was forced & contrived. Unnatural. I”ll take “G’s to Gents” anyday over that hogwash.
      Fif has the hustle/business savvy to still produce a quality show, but that shit wasn’t that show.
      Wasted a sunday evening to see what the hype was about.
      No dice.
