At the start of 2023, news emerged of 50 Cent and Eminem announcing their upcoming collaborative TV series for 8 Mile. The adaptation of the legendary 2002 film is sure to entertain, as 50 said it himself, "I'm batting a hundred." While we wait for more details, we had to give this a spot on our list just off of the pure hype around it.

9. Escape Plan

Next up is Escape Plan, a 2013 movie in which 50 Cent portrayed a character named Hush. It stars Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the plot is centered around exactly what the title sounds like: a prison escape.

8. Den of Thieves

STX Films

At number eight on our list is Den of Thieves. Written, directed, and produced by Christian Gudegast, this film stars Gerard Butler as the main character, along with 50 Cent (obviously), who stars as Levi Enson Levoux. The movie garnered plenty of acclaim, but wouldn't end up as 50's top movie performance ever.

7. Southpaw

At number seven on our list is Southpaw, which is arguably one of the most highly regarded film performances that 50 has been a part of to date. This legendary boxing film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whittaker, and Rachel McAdams, as well as 50 Cent, who stars as Jordan Mains.

6. Power, Book III: Raising Kanan

Up next on our list is Book III of Power, Raising Kanan, which documents the upbringing of 50 Cent's character in the show. It tells the story of how his notoriously heartless character came to be.

5. Get Rich or Die Tryin'

At number five on our list is 50 Cent's most famous film, the very film that documents his real life story. This was his debut acting appearance, and is a large part of why more and more opportunities presented themselves in the time thereafter.

4. Power, Book IV: Force

Next up on our list is Power, Book IV: Force. The last book in the Power series, this is a popular edition of the legendary storyline that 50 helped bring to audiences around the globe.

3. Power, Book II: Ghost

Starz

There are mixed reviews about all books of Power; it seems fair to say that everyone has their own order of best to worst. At the same time, it's arguably 50's most highly acclaimed TV series. At number three on our list is Power, Book II: Ghost.

2. BMF

Authenticity has proven to be a primary focus of 50 Cent's when it comes to anything entertainment. BMF is another prime example of that concept, as it stars Lil Meech as his father, Big Meech. This is just one example of the attention to detail that 50 Cent exemplified in this legendary series.

1. Power

At the number one spot on our list is the original series of Power. This is easily the most highly regarded of all four books, and for good reason. It's the foundation which gave them the creative space to create three more books of Power. This is one of the primary reasons that 50 has come to make such a killing in the TV game.
