Animal Ambition isn’t just the title of 50 Cent’s last album, it perfectly describes the ferocity in which the Queens rapper attacks all projects — no matter the industry. The man known as Curtis Jackson has earned the respect of his Power peers, as both a cast mate and legitimate executive. So much so that lead Omari Hardwick views 50 as one of the top executives in all of television.
That’s huge praise from a man who had some doubts about whether an artist could pull off a feat TV hasn’t seen since the likes of Mark Wahlberg (who went from “Good Vibrations” to Entourage and Boardwalk Empire). Watch as Omari breaks down his initial reservations when it came to 50’s involvement in Power, and find out exactly why Naturi Naughton wasn’t so quick to put the rapper in the proverbial box.
