    50 Cent's got a lot more money -- 8 figures worth -- to bring a lot more than just "Power" to the screen with Starz ... TMZ has learned.

    Sources close to the deal tell us ... it includes 3 projects the rapper-turned actor/producer already has in development -- "Black Family Mafia," "Tomorrow, Today" and a third to be announced soon.

    As you may know ... Fiddy currently boasts the hugely successful show "Power" on Starz, the most-watched series on the network. He also produces "50 Central" on BET and releases exclusive new music through his shows.

    Mr. Jackson's new deal with Starz extends their business relationship to September 2019.

    Glad for 50.

    But not sure I want the "Black mafia" to be viewed on tv. Just don't feel good about it being good for "the culture" I just feel when we get these opportunities we use them to create more creative stories.

    Why can't we create stories about an African Kingdom before euro and arab contact, or about 3 black kids that live near the beach discover a magic whale.

    I just feel sometimes with all the money talent creative genius hollywood has sometimes they can be really lazy with content.
    Good for 50 though. He seem to be a smart business dude. :umad:

    I don't think black people folk have ever felt that way.
    Corporate hollywood feel that way cause they feel that's the only thing that makes money. Hollywood has just been historically racist

    ie the WIZ was really a money flop. But black folk loved that movie especially from a Afrofuturism theme perspective.

    The Julia, Cosbys, Moonlight, Insecure, Greenlife, Black panther(I hope) etc. are prob better examples of "successful" stories being told

    I just think the gate holders and have to give the content a chance. Black folk have always wanted to see creative and diverse visuals of ourselves.
