Is 50 Cent in GTA 6? Rapper’s Vice City post sparks speculation
While GTA 6 is still yet to be officially revealed by Rockstar, rapper Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson may have teased that he is set to feature in the hotly-anticipated sequel.
There’s no doubt that Grand Theft Auto 6 is one of the most hyped games currently in development. The follow-up to GTA 5 has been the subject of many rumors surrounding its release date, map size, and when the first trailer could be revealed.
Excitement for GTA 6 only grew when a huge leak surfaced online, showing early gameplay footage of combat, driving, and the game’s playable characters.
Now, we could have another GTA 6 tease from an unlikely source, as rapper 50 Cent may have shared a hint that he is involved with the project.
50 Cent shares possible GTA 6 teaser
On March 2, across his official social media pages, including Twitter and Instagram, 50 Cent posted an image featuring the iconic Vice City logo in its signature pink font. The post was accompanied by the caption: “I will explain this later, GLG, GreenLightGang this s**t bigger than POWER trust me. BOOM.”
While the musician didn’t mention GTA 6 specifically, many fans felt that he could be teasing an upcoming announcement or even his involvement in the game.

The major GTA 6 gameplay leak back in 2022 did seem to reveal that Vice City, based on real-life Miami, would make up at least part of the sequel’s map.
If 50 Cent is set to feature in GTA 6, it’s not clear at the moment how large his contribution would be. It has been speculated that the Grammy Award winner could appear on the soundtrack, or even as the host of an in-game radio station.
On the other hand, he could also voice a character as part of the main story or a side mission. This wouldn’t be the first time a celebrity has shown up in the GTA series; comedians Ricky Gervais and Katt Williams both had cameos in GTA 4, while Ray Liotta voiced Tommy in the original Vice City.
Of course, this is all just speculation for now. Only time will tell if 50 Cent actually has a role in GTA 6, and we likely won’t know until Rockstar finally shares the first official trailer.
