50 Cent Says He’s Making A TV Show Based On Snoop Dogg’s “Murder Was The Case” trial
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is planning his next TV series. Hip Hop mogul announced on Thursday (Nov. 11), the Queens native revealed on his social media platforms, his plans for a new show about Snoop Dogg’s murder case, for which Tha Doggfather rapper was acquitted in 1996.
“I’m afraid this is going to be a problem for everything on Tv,” 50 tweeted, Thursday morning. “A moment in time ( MURDER WAS THE CASE ) when the dream you have been wishing for feels like a nightmare. You think you know you have no idea.@snoopdogg story is crazy BOOM Green Light Gang I don’t miss.”
In 1993, Snoop Dogg, aka Calvin Broadus, aka Snoop, aka The D-O-double G was charged with first-degree murder after a member of a rival gang was shot and killed by Snoop's bodyguard, McKinley Lee, aka Malik, who fired the shot while in the then 21-year-old rapper's vehicle.
They were ultimately acquitted on all charges in the death of the rival gang member due to self-defense claims and negligence on the Los Angeles Police Department’s part.
“Murder Was The Case” is a reference to a 1994 short film of the same name in which Snoop portrays his fictional death and resurrection. Death Row Records provided a soundtrack for the 18-minute short film.
Snoop is currently starred in 50’s newest Starz series, BMF, as Pastor Swift, a role 50 says he originally planned to play himself.
