50 Cent continues his chronicling of Black organized crime.
50 Cent is in talks to develop yet another series for television, confirming his development of a new series chronicling the tale of New York City’s infamous Sex Money Murder Gang and the leader of the group, Peter “Pistol Pete” Rollack.
Taking to Instagram to announce the news, 50 penned a caption in which he wrote, “Oscar award winning producer @nicolerocklin partners with ya Boy 50 to create the hit Tv show Sex Money Murder ( The Pistol Pete story),” he captioned a photo collage of himself, Rocklin and a book cover. “I get the 💰 bag.”
Sex Money Murder is best known as a sect of the Bloods, emerging in the Bronx borough in the late 1980s. The organization, headed by Rollack was well known for its hand in narcotics dealing and violent beef. In 2000, Pistol Pete was charged with at least six murders and was sentenced to life in federal prison without parole. While not considered to be as prominent as it once was, SMM continues to operate throughout New York City as a part of the United Blood Nation.
This now marks Fif’s latest attempt at taking control of the narrative surrounding African-American organized crime. Previously, he was casting for his development of a series based on the Black Mafia Family, notoriously led by Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory, who is currently completing a 30-year bid in prison.
