Rapper turned entertainment and alcohol mogul, 50 Cent, and “Love & Hip Hop” producer Mona Scott-Young took to Instagram this past Thursday (January 20) to share their excitement over a new joint television project.

“Hip Hop Homicides” will look at unsolved murders in the hip-hop community and endeavor to uncover clues as to what really happened.

“50 and I created this show in response to the disturbing number of murders in hip-hop,” Scott-Young, discussing the genesis of the show, said in a statement. “With this boots-on-the-ground investigative series, we will look to closely examine and explore leads surrounding these cases with the hope of finally providing loved ones with answers.”

Jackson added, “G-Unit Film and Television has thrived by telling real stories. As I continue to grow my current slate, premium non-scripted programming will be a major focus."

Produced by 50’s G-Unit Film & Television in cooperation with Scott-Young’s Monami Productions and Lionsgate Television, the eight-part series will air later this year on AMC Networks’ WEtv as well as its streaming service ALLBLK.

Van Lathan, a former co-host of TMZ Live who won an Oscar for his work as executive producer for Two Distant Strangers — the 2021 Academy Award Winner for Best Live Action Short Film, will host the series.
