50 Cent and court cases go hand-in-hand similar to white clouds and a blue sky. Recently, the Get Rich or Die Tryin’ rapper was threatened via social media with legal action over his latest TV series Hip Hop Homicides, which investigates the overwhelming number of killings in the rap game.
Executive produced by Mona Scott-Young alongside 50 Cent and hosted by Van Lathan Jr., Hip Hop Homicides examines the epizootic of violence in Rap by analyzing how factors such as policing, law-breaking, class, and race played a part in various startling murders. The homicide of Chi-town spitter FBG Duck was probed in the latest we TV episode — which aired this past Thursday (Dec 22) — and discussed how Duck was shot and killed on August 4, 2020 in Chicago while out shopping with two associates.

The suspects – Marcus Smart (aka Muwop), Kenneth Roberson (aka Kenny Mac), Charles Liggins (aka C Murda), Tacarlos Offerd (aka Los), and Christopher Thomas (aka C Thang) were detained in October 2021 and charged with Duck‘s murder.
In Hip Hop Homicides‘ episode on Thursday, Memo600, who’s signed to The Game‘s manager Wack 100, was reputedly marked as a potential suspect — which made him threaten to sue 50 Cent. “@50Cent IM SUING YOU FOR DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER. I DONT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT SOMEBODY BETTER EXPLAIN SOMETHING U PAID THE WRONG INVERTIGATORS [sic] DONT PUT ME IN NO MURDERS FAM CHASING CLOUT!!”
