“Power Book III: Raising Kanan” is a series that’s primarily about raising a child in the 90’s and how their growth is affected by his or her surroundings.
However fans discovered a very extraordinary point about this sequel. It seems to many that this series may be analogous with the life of 50 Cent, an American rapper who portrays Kanan in the chronicles.
Find out how much similarities there are between the rapper and ‘Kanan Stark.’
This movie is like a chronicle of the original crime series “Power,” released in 2014, and “Power Book II: Ghost,” released in 2020.
Now, the latest spinoff of the series is titled “Power Book III: Raising Kanan,” which has not yet been released but is said to be available by July of this year.
The show has a list of executive producers including, Courtney. A. Kemp, Gary Lennon, David Knoller as well as Curtis Jackson himself.
The spinoff “Raising Kanan” is centered around Kanan Stark, a role earlier played by 50 Cent in the original series in the Power universe.
Kanan Stark is a 15-year-old kid growing up in Queens. The movie is set in the 90s and depicts a series of events that turned an innocent soul into a gangster.
However, 50 Cent is acting in this spinoff, but it’s still unknown if there are future plans to include himself in the plot.
Are 50 Cent & Canan Stark The Same?
Producer Courtney Kemp made the fact known that “Power Book III: Raising Kanan” is not the same as the original “Power” series that involved Ghost, his family and his best friend.
Speaking about the character, Kanan to “Deadline,” 50 Cent said;
“You’ll see his very first fight, things that eventually turned him into the character that you see in Power.”
Because of this and many other details that pointed at 50 Cents’ upbringing, fans are certain that the Kanan character tells the story of the rapper when he was younger.
