50 Cent is set to create a television series about the murder case against Snoop Dogg, who was acquitted of the charges in 1996. He announced the news on instagram, I’m afraid this is going to be a problem for everything on Tv,” 50 Cent wrote. “A moment in time ( MURDER WAS THE CASE ) when the dream you have been wishing for feels like a nightmare. You think you know you have no idea. @snoopdogg story is crazy BOOM Green Light Gang I DON’T MISS.”

In 1993, Snoop Dogg and McKinley Lee, his former bodyguard, were charged with murder. When Lee shot and killed 20-year-old Philip Woldemariam in Los Angeles, the multi-platinum selling rapper was in the driver’s seat of a car.Prosecutors claimed Snoop Dogg and Lee hunted down Woldemariam, who was allegedly a rival gang member. During the lengthy trial, defense lawyers said Lee acted in self-defense after Woldemariam reached for a gun, while Snoop Dogg was also found not guilty.

Per Billboard50 explained why he approached Snoop for the role in BMF. 

“I was like, ‘Snoop would do a great job at this’– and I was able to reach out to him, and get them to commit to it because he was already a big fan of Power and a big supporter of me publicly. He was like, ‘Yo, this is like my favorite s—t.’ He would be saying that constantly.”
