Curtis Jackson on 'Power' finale, spinoffs and 'For Life'

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson became famous as a rapper, but he spends a substantial amount of time overseeing a burgeoning TV empire as a producer and actor.

In the next few days, 50 Cent will say goodbye to Starz’s most-watched series, “Power” (Sunday, 8 EST/PST), and hello to ABC’s “For Life,” due Feb. 11 (Tuesdays, 10 EST/PST), a new drama about an inmate turned lawyer who represents other inmates while trying to reverse his own wrongful conviction.

“Power” ends its six-season run by revealing the killer of James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), the nightclub entrepreneur and political hopeful who lived a parallel life as a drug kingpin. The final five episodes have featured the perspectives of potential Ghost assassins.

Jackson, 44, who received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last week, spoke to USA TODAY about the popularity and meaning of “Power,” a planned spinoff starring Mary J. Blige and his newest project.

Producer’s thoughts:50 Cent on why ‘Power’ hasn’t won more awards: ‘I’d like to say it’s racial’

Question: How did you come up with the “Who Shot Ghost?” concept for the final season?
