And he has already kicked off the first part of the process, which will see him revitalizing a number of properties in downtown Shreveport.

Gerod Durden, the real estate broker helping G-Unit execute this revitalization process, told the news team that 50 Cent plans on buying and renovating about two dozen commercial properties


“He is very passionate about the city,” Durden said. “I would say 10 or more properties that we’ve already closed a few of this week. It’ll be an additional 10 or so. These are all-cash offers. You know, there, there’s quite a few entertainment spots for not only adults and kids.”


He added: “He’s bringing a big jump park here. I mean, it’s a substantial size park. We’re looking at a grocery store in the immediate downtown Shreveport area, and those are ideas that we come up with together with the whole team. What can help the community?”


Following the commercial revitalization, the team will move towards helping ease the path to homeownership by both making more housing available, and making financing more attainable.


“And we start building houses, and we have an idea to grow in the community and help low to moderate-income families get mortgages,” explained G-Unit Film Studio’s Growth Advisor Orville Hall. “And phase three would move into the kids; we are going to go to each high school and put in media programs for kids to start training and mentor purposes. All these things for young people to have a positive environment.”

 

G-Unit Film & Television Inc. was founded in 2003, kicking off with the documentary 50 Cent: The New Breed. Since then, G-Unit has produced various high-profile TV shows, including Starz’s hit series Power, BMF and its various spin-offs.

50 added, "From the gritty narratives of the streets to the compelling stories that define our era, G-Unit has always been more than just entertainment; it’s a platform for voices that need to be heard, stories that need to be told.
