50 Cent might be expanding his repertoire to include a sitcom.
The rapper-turned-producer took to Instagram on Monday to pose a hypothetical Cosby Show successor to his followers.
“I have had a crush on @phyliciarashad for forever,” Fif wrote alongside a screenshot of the Huxtable family, with Phylicia Rashad’s Clair featured prominently and Cosby’s face only half-visible at the bottom. “I don’t know, she can talk with her eyes. she was just it, I think it was the Cosby show it was the only representation of black love on Tv. I gotta make us a new one.”
50 has seen a lot of success from his television career, with his latest shows Power Book II: Ghost and BMF both being hits on Starz. Power Book II even saw the addition of Cosby Show actor Geoffrey Owens, who made headlines a couple years ago for having a job at Trader Joe’s. Owens played Elvin on the Cosby Show and portrays Daniel Warren in Power Book II. He’s also the second slide in Fif’s IG post paying homage to Rashad.
50 Cent posted a screenshot of a tweet about Owens being shamed for working at Trader Joe’s, writing, “Yeah The underdog back on Top @iamgeoffreyowens.”
In June, when Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction was overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and he was ordered to be released from prison, 50 Cent initially celebrated, taking to IG to write, “My son Bill beat that case, These hoe’s be tripping.” He later deleted the post.
