50 Cent spoke on more than just his snitch son Tekashi 6ix9ine in his new interview with DJ Drama.

He also discussed Power and its spinoff, which will focus on the 80s, which 50 explains was "the golden era" for hustlers.

"Think Goodfellas, how the story is from Ray Liotta's character," said 50 of the show's narration.

Fif also revealed the show will feature an even bigger star than Liotta: Oscar winner Sean Penn. (50 Cent said it will be the first TV series Penn stars in. It's actually the second.  Last year he was in the British drama The First, which was canceled after one season.)

In addition to his Power prequel, 50 is working on a Black Family Mafia series for Starz. 

No word on when the two shows will drop, but 50 is also currently casting the BFM show.

Listen to him speak on the prequel below.
