Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson collects checks from acting, producing, headphones, vodka, clothes, television, and more. On Tuesday, August 23, the rap mogul dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to pitch his latest business venture. “Hey kids, it’s back to school time! And where do you get the best s–t for the lowest price? The 50 Cent Store,” said 50, who was fitted in khakis, a sweater vest and light blue polo shirt.
The 50 Cent Store sells everything a typical dollar store does—pencil nubs, thermoses with no tops, expired Lunchables, and the ever-popular Judge Mathis lunchbox—for exactly ¢50 cents.
50 also addressed the controversy surrounding the appearance of his penis on Power, saying that while he knew it would be shown, he didn’t realize it would be so prominent. He was so mad that he cursed out the show’s executive producer Courtney Kemp on Instagram. “Kiss my ass,” he wrote in a since-deleted IG post. “This shit ain’t funny.” He also claimed that his penis wasn’t in the first few cuts of the episode that he had been shown.
“I knew it was there, but in the original clips, it was darker,” he told Jimmy Kimmel. “It wasn’t on, like, a big screen, like a life-sized version. It wasn’t like an accident. Courtney was like, ‘I didn’t want to show it to you in the beginning, because I didn’t think you needed to see it at that point…You just gotta take one for the team.'”
50 also told Kimmel he got yelled at by one of his aunts for not warning her about what she was going to see during that episode. “My aunt sees the show, and she’s like, ‘I’m traumatized,'” he said. “She texted me like, ‘What the fuck? Why didn’t you tell me?'”
