A new docuseries called Hip-Hop Homicides comes to WEtv this November detailing the concerns from the veterans of the hip hop community surrounding rappers dying at such an alarming rate!
With the help of Executive Producers Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Mona Scott-Young, former TMZ Live host Van Lathan looks into the staggering number of murders in the Hip Hop community to uncover the truth behind these crimes.
On Wednesday September 28, 2022, 50 Cent shared a trailer highlighting some of the stories that will be explored within the docuseries, including those of deceased rappers Pop Smoke, King Von, XXXTentacion, Chinx, and more.
The clip also shows that there will be commentary from notable figures in Hip-Hop who have been directly affected by the stories mentioned such as French Montana, Juvenile, Asian Da Brat, and others will share their sentiments.
The first episode will focus on Pop Smoke.
“G-Unit Film and Television has thrived by telling real stories,” 50 Cent stated in a press release obtained by All HipHop. “As I continue to grow my current slate, premium non-scripted programming will be a major focus. Hip-Hop loves things that are damaged. This series will shed light on the artists that didn’t make it through the struggle.”
Mona Scott-Young added, “50 and I created this show in response to the disturbing number of murders in Hip-Hop. With this boots-on-the-ground investigative series, we will look to closely examine and explore leads surrounding these cases with the hope of finally providing loved ones with answers.”
Co-produced by Mona Scott-Young and hosted by Van Lathan, WEtv’s Hip Hop Homicides premieres on Nov. 3rd and will be available on the ALLBLK streaming service on Mondays.

It is so disappointing that we have to add PnB Rock and LottaCash Desto to this what seems to be never-ending list. Being a rapper shouldn’t be the most dangerous job on the planet. How do you guys feel about the topic? Comment below.
