50 Cent is not a stranger to the video game industry. 50 Cent starred in a handful of titles before, most notably 50 Cent: Bulletproof and 50 Cent: Blood in the Sands, which came out in 2006 and 2009, respectively. Before this, Rockstar Games was believed to have offered the role of Carl Johnson, otherwise known as CJ, to 50 Cent but he declined because he only wanted to play as himself.
Now, it appears that Rockstar has come to Fiddy with another offer.
50 Cent went on Instagram to tease his involvement in a GTA game, specifically, Vice City.
Naturally, fans are speculating about what this could all mean. After all, the earlier Grand Theft Auto 6 leaks "confirmed" the next GTA installment is set in Vice City, presumably in modern times. Fans have spent the past couple of months mapping out the entire map to try and approximate what a modern version of the city could look like.
Unfortunately, only 50 Cent knows what he's trying to tell us. Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar are stingy about leaks, so we're pretty sure they are aware of what 50 Cent is doing.

The only thing that us fans can do now is to wait for a proper confirmation from either Rockstar, Take-Two, or 50 Cent.
If, however, 50 Cent is working with Rockstar on something for GTA 6, it wouldn't be the first time someone from his close circle of friends has lent their talents to the popular video game franchise. Dr. Dre, one of his mentors in the music industry, appears in GTA Online as himself in both The Cayo Perico Heist and The Contract DLC.
On the other hand, Eminem, one of his best friends, was reportedly in talks with Rockstar to star in a live-action GTA film many years ago.
In any case, regardless of what kind of involvement 50 Cent will have in either GTA Online or the next GTA Game, it's going to be epic.
Some insiders believe GTA 6 will be officially revealed later this year ahead of its presumed release in 2025. Unfortunately, Take-Two Interactive's massive release sales pipeline through FY2025 shows no signs of the highly anticipated installment.
