Jonathan “DaBaby” Kirk has publicly expressed his interest in collaborating with Hip-Hop mogul Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson on-screen, sparking excitement among fans of both artists. The rapper from Charlotte, North Carolina, made his desire known after seeing a recent Instagram post by 50 Cent related to his hit series “Power.”
On October 2, 50 Cent shared a video clip on his Instagram account from “Power,” the popular Starz series. The clip showcased the G-Unit Films and Television founder alongside Sinqua Walls, who played Shawn Stark in the show. In the caption, 50 Cent reflected on the scene’s intensity and inquired about viewers’ thoughts on his character Cassius Dawkins.
In Power and its spin-off Power Book II: Ghost, 50 Cent portrayed the notorious character Kanan Stark. Additionally, he took on the role of Cassius Dawkins in the ABC legal drama For Life. DaBaby, upon seeing 50 Cent’s Instagram post, didn’t hesitate to voice his interest in working with the multi-talented executive producer of “For Life” and the Power franchise. In a comment on the post, DaBaby conveyed his aspiration, stating, “I gotta play a role on the screen [with] you before it’s all over”.
This isn’t the first time the two artists have engaged in a public exchange regarding collaboration. In 2021, 50 Cent expressed his willingness to mentor DaBaby by sharing, “I’m going to teach him all the mistakes I made, so he can be better than me. THIS IS HIP HOP!”
While 50 Cent initially made his mark as a Platinum-selling Hip-Hop artist, he successfully transitioned into acting, appearing in films such as “Get Rich or Die Tryin’, All Things Fall Apart,” and “Expendables.” On the other hand, DaBaby has also ventured behind the camera, directing music videos for his own songs as well as those of other artists.
As the prospect of a collaboration between these two prominent figures in the entertainment industry looms, fans eagerly await the potential on-screen chemistry and creativity that could emerge from a DaBaby and 50 Cent partnership.
