Chris Brown has anger management issues and 50 Cent – real name Curtis Jackson – says he grew up in the hood selling crack, so it’s not a surprise that they have love for each other.

Both musicians are buddies, which is one reason the “P.I.M.P” rapper reportedly promised Chris a role in the Starz popular TV series “Power”.
Rihanna’s ex-boyfriend was expected to play the role of a drug dealer in the movie.
However, the chance was recently denied because 50 Cent didn’t consult the movie executives before making the promise, and Brown’s recent arrest which complicated his anger management issues didn’t help matters.
The 27-year-old singer who was arrested and charged on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon on Tuesday had his reputation questioned although his lawyer has claimed he’s innocent of all accusations.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: “50 promised Chris a big role on ‘Power,’ playing a drug dealer. But 50 didn’t consult the network first, and execs were not happy when they found out about it…
“The network insisted that Chris’ casting was not going to happen, because of fears about his anger issues. There was a big blowup, and they had to tell Chris he was not going to get the role. The news was delivered to him early Monday. He was livid.”
50 Cent, who’s the movie producer – recently defended the ‘Fine China’ hitmaker following his arrest after a lengthy stand-off with police outside his home.
He wrote on Instagram: “That’s my boy. I watched him come up, a lot of the s - - t he go threw is crazy to me . . . If someone calls 911 and says you pulled a gun on them in your house, are the police coming to creat [sic] a bunker at the end of your drive way for 11 hours to wait for a search warrant? Then live stream it, This must be VIP Treatment. SMH.(sic)”
Despite executives’ reservations, the G-Unit boss is still determined to get his pal on his show.
He said: “Tune into ‘Power’ next season, because you will see Chris Brown.”
Meanwhile, latest reports reveal that rapper, Ray J was apparently involved in the reported events of August 30 that led to Chris Brown’s arrest.
TMZ has now learned that Chris was allegedly in his home with friends, including Ray J, when some “uninvited guests” paid them a visit.
The site reports that Ray J was getting a tattoo while one of the unknown guests Baylee Curran was ordered to leave with a friend, following their weird behaviors around a jewelry merchant. According to the report, the two ladies weren’t invited at the home.
Disappointed Baylee want ahead to implicate Brown out of anger, by claiming he had a gun pointed at her. TMZ says a person inside Chris’s home “insists” the singer was sleeping the entire time everything went down.
