Hip-hop sensation and music mogul 50 Cent teams with MTV to bring you this elimination reality show. The contestants, hand-picked by 50, have proven themselves to be savvy, street-smart and, successful in their own right. But now it’s time to prove themselves to 50 and see who has the power to earn the money, $100,000 of 50 Cent’s own money. Each week, 50 Cent will share his personal story on his success ... 50’s Laws of Power. The candidates will take the knowledge and apply it in various street-smart, hustler-driven challenges that will test their entrepreneurial skills and thirst for power. The candidates will be pushed to their limits and must remain strong and fearless. The search will be narrowed down each week by 50 and his crew with the finalist winning $100,000 of 50’s money.
|1||Closed CaptioningVideoChoose Your Crew Wisely||In the series opener, 14 aspiring young entrepreneurs arrive in New York City to begin an intense competition as millionaire hip-hop mogul 50 Cent searches for an ambitious, hustling self-starter with street smarts to invest $100,000 of his own money in. The contestants’ first test is a 5-mile race from Roosevelt Island to Camp Curtis, their house in Brooklyn. Of course, there’s one big twist – the contestants must run chained together – chain gang style. And when tension escalates into multiple confrontations, several contestants find themselves in fear of being eliminated. In the end, 50 “drops” one player, sending them packing and ending their dream of a $100,000 investment.||41:56||$1.99||View in iTunes|
