Season 1 will give a behind the scenes look at the beef that transpired between 50 Cent and The Game (real name Jayceon Terrell Taylor), which "led to an all-out street war, pitting G-Unit against music impresario Jimmy Henchman, resulting in a murder-for-hire plot and Henchman serving a life sentence in prison," according to NME.

The Game explains the 12-year beef with fellow rapper 50 Cent.

Before their feud, 50 Cent and The Game were part of the "In Da Club" rapper's G-Unit crew. However, The Game was booted from the popular group in 2005 for alleged disloyalty. 

Following their falling out, the duo released diss tracks about one another and were physically engaged in an all out war, with both camps at odds.

"At one point, me and 50 really wanted to kill each other. I had a deep hate for him and he had a deep hate for me," The Game revealed to NME. "We literally should have been another version of Biggie and Tupac. We both should have died in that beef."

He continued, "There was a lot of dangerous s--t going on. We were shooting at each other; our squads were shooting at each other. It was on sight. It was gunshots and people getting stabbed. It went even bigger than 50 and me and our entourages, it was our fans. The fans had to pick and they were split up and even they were fighting."

After more than a decade fighting one another, the rappers decided to end their ongoing beef and make amends. The Game told the outlet that ending the beef was "the best thing for me and him to do." Adding, "Beefs usually don't get squashed until someone gets murdered. That's just how it is where I come from." 

Though the two have fortunately put their 12-year feud aside, fans are definitely excited for the new series.

"50 Cent is launching a Starz anthology series on his beef with Game.  No one — and I repeat— no one in the history of hip-hop monetized beef more than 50," one person tweeted. Another wrote, "I'm going to subscribe to Starz just for this."

This individual posted, "Now he gets to tell his side of the story cuz we know the game told his a long time ago."

At this time, it remains unclear if The Game will be part of the upcoming project.
