T.I. and 50 Cent Partner for New Show on Cop Who Investigated Murders of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G

Rappers T.I. and 50 Cent are joining forces. Not on a song, but for a television series titled “Twenty Four Seven.” The show is based on Derrick Parker, a former NYPD detective who investigated some of rap’s most well-known cases, including Tupac Shakur being shot in 1994 outside of Quad Studios in New York City. He also investigated the murders of The Notorious B.I.G and Jam Master Jay.

50 Cent shared news of the series on his Instagram page on Tuesday, Aug. 25, while T.I. has yet to make an announcement. The show, which is in its final stages of negotiation, is being produced by CBS All Access, as well as Lionsgate Television.

The series is based on the book titled “Notorious C.O.P. : The Inside Story of the Tupac, Biggie, and Jam Master Jay Investigations from NYPD’s First Hip-Hop Cop.” It was written by Parker and Matt Diehl. Writer Dallas Jackson will executive produce and also pen the script for “Twenty Four Seven.”

T.I. will star as Parker and will executive produce the series through his company Grand Hustle Entertainment, while 50 Cent will executive produce it via his G-Unit Film & Television.

A lot of 50 Cent’s followers said they were excited about the show upon hearing about it, and that two major entertainment figures pairing up is epic.

“LOVE TO SEE KINGS CONNECT,” one person wrote.

“I need to watch this expeditiously,” wrote another, referencing the name of T.I.’s podcast.

Besides talking about investigating famous rap cases in his book, Parker also talked about it during interviews and explained how that part of his job began.

“While I was in the 81 [detective] squad, I was already looking into the hip-hop industry because they come across my desk with a few homicides,” he told VladTV in 2017. “I had a few homicides involving guys that were in the rap music industry … Nobody took it really seriously until Tupac got killed … but when Biggie Smalls got killed that’s when I told my boss, who was an inspector at the time, about the murder of Biggie is going to come back to New York.”
