50 Cent: The Money and the Power is an American reality television series which premiered November 6, 2008 on MTV. The show was hosted by 50 Cent and follows the same mold as The Apprentice.[1] It was meant to serve as a "visual companion" to 50 Cent's book The 50th Law, which he co-wrote with Robert Greene,[2] author of The 48 Laws of Power.[3][4][5] The show was cancelled after one season.[3]

Format

The show follows fourteen aspiring rap moguls through challenges issued by 50 Cent, with the winner receiving a $100,000 investment from 50 Cent to start his or her own business venture.[6] A panel including G-Unit members Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks will judge the contestants, along with guests such as Chris Lighty, Ryan Schinman, LL Cool J, DJ Whoo Kid, Miss Info, and former Danity Kane member Aubrey O'Day.
