Grammy-nominated rapper and businessman who wrote “In da Club” has ventures underway to open his own, reports say. According to news reports from the Jasmine Brand, 50 Cent‘s business portfolio includes almost every market imaginable: media, venues, brand partnerships and more, but sources say he’ll be expanding into a market he hasn’t tapped yet, except as a customer.

You can find me in the club, bottle full of bub’
When I pull out up front, you see the Benz on dubsI’m full of focus, man, my money on my mindI got a mill’ out the deal and I’m still on the grind

The 48-year-old Queens rapper, as well as Founder and CEO of G-Unit Records, is said to be opening up his own strip in Detroit with a theme having to do with his ownership. 50 Cent’s ties to Michigan’s biggest city can be traced to his long-time working relationship with Eminem, who was raised in Detroit. Last month, the Best-Selling Hip-Hop Artist of 2007 performed at his Final Lap tour stop in the Motor City with the man who founded him, Eminem, as his surprise guest, to the great excitement of their fans.

“Detroit, make some noise for one of the best friends that I’ve ever known, 50 Cent!” Eminem exclaimed when he appeared on stage in 50 Cent’s recent Detroit show.

“That’s my guy, he put me on!” replied the winner of numerous ASCAP, AVN, BET and Billboard Music Awards. “You know the vibes we don’t switch up over here.”

50 Cent additionally has a number of businesses and financial ties to the city already, meaning that this new opening will only continue to spread his influence and brand.

My flow, my show brought me the doughThat bought me all my fancy thingsMy crib, my cars, my clothes, my jewels

Reports indicate that he has already selected a location and is actively seeking staff to build his team with. No official timeline has been reported as far as when the club will be announced. We as industry’s official trade publication welcome the first-time adult nightclub owner warmly:
