But Fif is far from slowing down as he embarks on his next big venture and much to your surprise it’s nothing to do with starting a new beef with some unsuspecting emcee.
50 is part of VH1’s ‘Rock Doc’ series, will be called ’50’s Roots.’ The documentary will find the rap star journeying into the deep south to explore his family history and ancestral slave roots. Venturing a long way from his headquarters in South Jamaica, Queens, 50 will use the show to highlight the importance of learning one’s past by talking to family members and historians that can shed light on his personal history and origins. 50 will allow the world to take this emotional journey of discovery as he follows the steps of those who literally created his path.
