Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson wasn’t just talking earlier this year when he said he planned to leave Starz.

On Friday (Sept. 16), the hip-hop mogul shared on Instagram that his production company’s contract with the network ended and he was moving on.

He made the announcement with a GIF of the Pittsburgh Pirates celebrating by showering each other with champagne in the team’s locker room. “This is my vibe right now! Starz deal done, we had nothing but success so no hard feelings. I’m out. I’ll let you know where we are going shortly,” he captioned the post.

In a follow-up post on Saturday, the rapper and actor shared a photo of a calendar marking the end of his contract. “09-17-22 official day of really owning my content & deciding where and how I do it moving forward!!!” he wrote.

Starz did not immediately respond to Urban Hollywood 411′s request for comment.

The Lionsgate-owned premium cable channel had a successful partnership with the rapper, who executive produced a string of hit shows for the cabler, including Power, Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, Power Book IV: Force and BMF.

But the hip-hop star went public in a March 1 Instagram post, saying he was having issues with Starz.

“This is me packing my stuff, Starz. Sucks, my deal is up over here I’m out. They renewed Hightown and Force is the highest-rated show they have [but] it’s sitting in limbo. If I told you how much dumb sh– I deal with over here,” he wrote in the since-deleted post.

The show he called out is the critically-praised Starz crime drama Hightown, starring Chicago Fire alum Monica Raymund, which had just been renewed for a third season.

Power Book IV: Force debuted in February, and was the “most-watched premiere” in Starz history, as previously reported. Force was renewed for a second season a week after 50 Cent’s post.
