50 Cent, the American rapper, says he is making a series about Hushpuppi, the embattled internet fraudster.
50 Cent did not, however, reveal the nature of the series.
“For my scammers I gotta do this one, Hushpuppy series coming soon!” he wrote while sharing a photo of Hushpuppi.

50 Cents wouldn’t be the first to consider making a movie off Hushpuppi’s brush with global law enforcement.
In 2021, Will Packer Productions, a US company, and EbonyLife Studios owned by Nigeria’s Mo Abudu acquired rights to make a movie based on Bloomberg’s article about the self-confessed international fraudster.
Hushpuppi was arrested in the United Arab Emirates back in June 2020 alongside 11 of his associates over allegations bordering on hacking, impersonation, scamming, banking fraud, and identity theft.
In 2021, Hushpuppi pleaded guilty to money laundering.
He admitted to attempting to steal over $1.1 million from an individual who sought to fund a children’s school in Qatar.
Hushpuppi, according to a statement on the US justice department’s website, tricked his victim into providing funds for the school by playing the roles of bank officials and creating a bogus website.
The convict was, last Monday, sentenced to 11 years and three months in US federal prison for money laundering.
