The post contained the “Many Men” rapper in front of the Astrodome wearing A Houston Astros hat. Attached to the post was a report on Discovery+ greenlighting an anthology series from the rapper and his G-Unit and Television Banner. The television series is called, “Confessions of a Crime Queen” and it is a one-of-a-kind show focused on the rise and fall of women crime bosses. A-List celebrities will both interview the former crime bosses and recreate their life stories.
Mayor Sylvester Turner was excited to welcome the rapper to H-Town. He later tweeted, “Welcome to #Houston @50cent It is great to hear that you have chosen our city as your new home. Welcome to the most diverse city in the nation.”

Many believe that 50’s recent move is related to a post he made back in Oct. 2020, about his taxes. 50 wrote at the time that Biden wanted to raise taxes in New York City by 62%.
In a now-deleted Tweet 50 wrote “WHAT THE F—! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT,” he shared. “F— NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway.”
It is no surprise that 50 will join the likes of other celebrities like Sandra Bullock, Matthew McConaughey and Chris Klein, who have left states like California and New York and flocked to Texas for better rates.
