Joey Bada$$ made his debut as part of 50 Cent’sPower universe on Sunday (July 18). The Brooklyn native stars in the role of Unique, who is billed as the most powerful drug dealer in all of New York City, for Power Book III: Raising Kanan.
Joey Bada$$ received a solid amount of airtime in the debut episode. He runs the streets as the rival drug dealer to Kanan Stark’s family. The show takes place in ’90s NYC with Kanan growing up in Jamaica, Queens just as 50 Cent did.
“One season isn’t enough to tell the coming-of-age story of Kanan Stark and his mother, Raq, a fierce and successful woman who is a force of nature,” Starz CEO Jeffrey Hirsch said. “The anticipation globally for more of the Power Universe made it clear that the Kanan story needs to continue.”
