50 Cent is working on putting together a Tekashi 6ix9ine docuseries.

But it looks like he got beat to the punch.

Today, Showtime and Rolling Stone announced a three-part 6ix9ine docuseries called SuperVillian. SuperVillain is based on the Rolling Stone article, “Tekashi 6ix9ine: The Rise and Fall of a Hip-Hop Supervillain.”

“Tekashi 6ix9ine’s story fits into Rolling Stone’s history of epic narratives about the most important and controversial artists of our times,”  said Gus Wenner, President and COO of Rolling Stone. “We are thrilled to work with Showtime, Imagine and Lightbox on the definitive docuseries of Tekashi’s meteoric rise and spectacular fall.”

“The bizarre and complicated rise of Tekashi 6six9ine is a story of our times,” added Vinnie Malhotra, Executive Vice President of Nonfiction Programming at Showtime. “Beyond becoming one of the most notorious hip hop artists of this generation, his story speaks volumes of the impact of social media and manufactured celebrity in our society. We’re thrilled to be partnering with such heavy hitters in the world of music and documentary to bring SuperVillain to life.”

No word on when SuperVillian drops.

When it does, 6ix9ine will likely be out of prison and flooding streaming services with new music.
