50 Cent's television series Power is set to premiere in June.

The show has been executive produced by the rapper and will air on June 7 on the Starz network Stateside. The programme stars actor Omari Hardwick as a successful businessman who owns a New York nightclub called Truth, which is a front for a criminal drug network.

50 Cent performs the show's title theme, 'Big Rich Town'. Speaking about the track, via The Wrap, 50 Cent - real name Curtis Jackson - commented: "For me the musical component of Power is so important; I wanted to let the music speak to the viewers as they are watching the show and being able to create the theme song, 'Big Rich Town', was crucial as it sets the tone of the show."

He added that viewers will also hear songs from his fifth album on the show, which is set for release on June 3. "The audience will also get the chance to hear additional music off my latest album, 'Animal Ambition' as the theme of the album translates into events portrayed in the show," said Jackson.
