‘Is He Canceled for This?’: ‘Power’ Producer Accused By Ex Assistant of Calling 50 Cent Racial Slurs In New Lawsuit, Rapper Responds

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson isn’t surprised that his former business partner Randall Emmett is speaking ill of him after a newly filed lawsuit alleges that the “Power” producer repeatedly called the hip-hop mogul racial slurs. 

According to legal documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times, which broke the news, one of Emmett’s former assistants, Martin G’Blae, filed the suit on Tuesday, Nov. 1, accusing the television executive of racial discrimination and creating a hostile workplace.

The Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films co-founder reportedly referred to Fif as “This f–king n–ger” in August 2020 after reading the emcee’s April 2020 book “Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter,” which didn’t paint the producer in the best light. G’Bae claimed that Emmett told him: “All you guys are alike. All you guys do is hustle people,” before throwing the book at him.

According to the 24-claim complaint: “G’Blae was unlawfully terminated due to his race, religion, and disability; in retaliation for requesting reasonable accommodations for his disability; in retaliation for complaining of racial harassment; in retaliation for complaining of unpaid wages; and complaining of and resisting numerous unlawful and unsafe activities and instructions.” 

Reports of Emmett’s legal issues ultimately got back to Fif, who later took to his Instagram, where he shared a screenshot of the LA Times article. In the caption, he wrote, “This does not surprise me this guy is a real piece of s–t. Randell(Sorry Fofty) Emmett,” before asking, “but wait is he canceled for this?”

The “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” rapper’s question sparked debate in the comments section on Emmett’s fate, including one user who wrote, “Can we seize his assets, cancel his contracts, block his bank account? Nah I guess we only doing that to Kanye right.”

This is the latest allegation against the “2 Guns” producer, who was accused of sexual misconduct in an LA Times exposé last June. The outlet also alleged that the movie boss used various tactics to silence his accusers, including offering one woman a payment of about $200,000.

Emmett was also accused of pushing Golden Globe-winning actor Bruce Willis to work, despite being aware of his failing health, though he denied knowing. In March, the family of the Hollywood vet announced that he was retiring from acting after being diagnosed with aphasia, a neurological disorder that affects the ability to communicate. Emmett and Willis worked on several projects, including “Hard Kill” and “Survive the Night.”  

However, Fif and Emmett’s feud dates back to 2019, when the Queens rapper called out the producer for his $ 1 million outstanding bill. During their feud, he made controversial Instagram posts about Emmett’s spending on his ex Lala Kent and other claims. Emmett ultimately paid the entertainer back, but not before taking a trip to the emergency room after he thought he was suffering from a heart attack.
