Moneybagg Yo is taking his writing talents to the big screen — and he wants 50 Cent to be a part of the project.
In a series of Instagram Stories posted on Monday (June 6), the Memphis rapper gave his 8.2 million followers a first glimpse of the script for a new movie in the works called If Pain Was a Person, named after his A Gangsta’s Pain album cut.
The front cover of the script reads “written by Marcus Harris and Joe Clabough” and “story by Moneybagg Yo,” while inside fans get a preview of dialogue between characters named AJ, JR, Mario, Peewee, Marcus, Vegas, Kendra and Backend.
“Aye 50, let’s talk about it,” Moneybagg says in one video, pinging the Get Rich or Die Tryin’ rapper, whose popular Power universe and BMF series have established him as a TV mogul.
If Pain Was a Person appears to be scheduled for a third-quarter 2022 release, with Moneybagg’s caption reading, “Hope y’all ready!! Big Screen Bagg #september.”
The G-Unit general famously entered the beverage industry in 2004 when he launched Formula 50 with Glacéau and became a minority shareholder in the company. He pocketed a cool $100 million when Coca-Cola purchased Glacéau for $4.1 billion three years later.
