50 Cent Salutes Carmelo Anthony After ‘Power’ Praise: ‘If We Ain’t A Big Deal, Who Is?’

50 Cent has tipped his proverbial hat to Carmelo Anthony after the NBA great showed love to Power.

Melo made the comments about the G-Unit head honcho’s beloved Starz show during the latest episode of his new podcast 7PM in Brooklyn, which is co-hosted by The Kid Mero. In the podcast, Melo congratulated Fif for what he’d done with the Power universe, saying that it’s “fucking crazy, because there’s nothing that can touch that today.”


50 Cent found out about Carmelo Anthony’s comments and took to his Instagram on Tuesday (January 23) to send his regards. “@carmeloanthony always been my man, me him and @kingjames happen in 03 If we ain’t a BIG DEAL WHO IS ?” he wrote in the caption.

Check out Fif’s post, along with the episode of 7PM in Brooklyn, below.

In related 50 Cent news, the rapper-turned-television executive has been making headlines because of his newfound appreciation for the abstinent lifestyle.

Taking to his Instagram on Saturday (January 20), the Power executive producer showed off a trim figure as he revealed that not having sex inspired him to hit the gym more.

“I’m focused man, practicing abstinence is helping me train harder. I feel great I think more people should try it,” he wrote in the caption.


Earlier this month, 50 Cent suggested he’s giving up sex by saying he’s “practicing abstinence” this year to focus on achieving his goals.

He wrote: “My new idea is so big, I don’t have time to be distracted I’m practicing abstinence, I have been meditating and focusing on my goals. I hope this New Year helps you excel to the next level.”


50 is set for a big 2024, especially on the film and TV side of things. He is most notably working on a TV series based on Eminem’s 8 Mile which he has said will be “just as big as the feature film.”

Also in development is an unscripted TV series about Margarito and Pedro Flores, twin brothers from Chicago who became “the most prolific drug dealers in the city’s history” before cooperating with the DEA to bring down Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

50 also has several other projects in the works including a show called Vice City which will “follows three friends, and former soldiers, who return to their home city of Miami in the mid ’80s after being dishonorably discharged from the military for their involvement in the Iran Contra scandal.”

He is also developing a boxing drama titled Fightland which is about a “retired disgraced world champion fighter drawn into the corrupt underbelly of the sport after the disappearance of his childhood best friend and training partner.”


The Queens native, who signed a production deal with Fox last year and recently and opened his own film and TV studio, still has a number of shows on the air at STARZ, including three Power spin-offs and BMF.

On the music side, 2024 could see a return of 50 Cent the rapper. Speaking to radio host Big Boy last year, he revealed plans to reunite with Dr. Dre for a new project.
