‘This Is Fake:’ 50 Cent Warns Fans About Bogus Casting Call for STARZ BMF Series

Someone tried to pull a fast one on those actors looking for their first big break and 50 Cent pointed it out.

As we previously shared, the G-Unit rapper scored a major deal with the Starz Network to develop more shows after “Power,” a show he executive produces, achieved record-breaking success.

50 Cent Warns Fans About Fake BMF Casting Call


One of those projects surround the life and story of the notorious drug gang BMF, and someone posted a flier of an audition inside a Detroit hotel.

“Official Detroit casting call for Starz “BMF”series. Hosted by 50 Cent,” the flier read.

But the Queens-bred rapper quickly let his followers know the casting call is bogus, and he’d make an official announcement when the time was right.

“This is fake. I will be posting official info soon. Good bless,” he wrote.

Perhaps some people believed the flier was real because last year 50 announced that he’d have open castings for “BMF” in Detroit, St. Louis, New York and Los Angeles.

Plus, in 2016, Fif described what type of actors he’d be looking for, and it’s those who aren’t yet polished or discovered. Instead, he wants to find the next breakout star.

“Casting for my ‘BMF’ series will be handled differently,” he wrote on Facebook. “It will not require talent to have a agent to read for a roll. I’m gonna find some diamonds in the dirt on this one.”

This is the second bogus flier using Fif’s name in as many days. A music promotion company, Concert France, announced the rapper would be performing in Paris on January 1. 50 Cent took to social media to inform fans this event was also bogus.
