50 Cent and his G-Unit crew, are coming together to help with housing access to residents in Shreveport, LA. On Wednesday (June 12), KTAL reported that the rapper and G-unit will purchase nearly two dozen properties throughout the city. The goal is to bring a “vibrant community” back to downtown Shreveport. Gerod Durden, a local real estate agent who’s working with Fif says this is a passion project for the rapper.

“We’re looking at a grocery store in the immediate downtown Shreveport area,” Durden told the news outlet. “And those are ideas we’ve come up with together with the whole team and saying, ‘What can help the community?’” According to KTAL, the Power creator’s revitalization plan entails three phases. Revitalization of the city, offering access to affordable housing, and implementing programs for children in the community.


Fif went on Instagram to share his excitement and a clip of the news story of his upcoming projects: “Betting on me is not a gamble, it’s a sure thing Sherevport is up next,” he wrote. G-Unit’s growth advisor, Orville Hall says the three-phase plan will “help low to moderate income families get mortgages.” Hall also noted that the rapper was passionate about offering resources to kids and teens. “We’re gonna go to each high school and we hope to put an immediate program in each high school to start training purposes and mentorships.”

In other news, the rapper has landed himself in hot water. He’s facing major criticism for downplaying Power actor Michael Rainey Jr.’s recent assault caught on a video stream. In a since-deleted Instagram post on June 10, 50 Cent dismissed the incident, writing, “Wait sexual assault [frowning face emoji] from a male perspective this was an aggressive advance. LOL HE’s fine no charges are being pressed.”
