AceShowbiz - 50 Cent may try to cash in on Tekashi69 a.k.a 6ix9ine's life story despite distancing himself from his former good friend for snitching. The 44-year-old rapper/singer has hinted that he's going to produce a biopic about the incarcerated rapper.
When touting his upcoming ABC series "For Life" on Instagram, a follower asked him if there was any truth to the rumor about him buying the rights to a movie about the "Gummo" rapper. Not denying or confirming the report, 50 responded to the fan's question, "I'm working boy."
Catching words about a potential 6ix9ine biopic, ScHoolboy Q didn't miss a beat to campaign for a role in the upcoming movie while dissing 6ix9ine. "THe 6 9 movie gone be crazy... I Hope I get a role in it. I just wanna play one of tHe snitcHes," he tweeted.
The "Man of the Year" hitmaker is so confident that he would be the perfect choice to play 6ix9ine, adding in another post, "I can def get away wit playing 6 9 on da B.E.T Version.. I'm all in."
6ix9ine was arrested on racketeering charges in November 2018. He pled guilty to nine charges and faced a minimum of 47 years in prison, but he cut a deal in return for his full cooperation. He has been testifying in court against Nine Trey Blood Gang members Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack. He has also outed Jim Jones and Cardi B as alleged gang members.
50 Cent has distanced himself from 6ix9ine since the latter agreed to snitch, saying in a recent interview, "He's his mother's child now. After you do s**t like that, you're your mama's child. Don't call me."
He, however, thinks that 6ix9ine could still have a future in music after he's released from jailed. The "Power" co-creator said back in February, "I think [after he comes home from jail] that he can make music and people can hear it, but the original core and base that he tapped into won't rock."
