50 Cent is showing off his new power.

The Power star, executive producer, and theme song rapper has dropped first look footage at Power Book III: Raising Kanan via the music video for "Part of the Game," which will serve as the new series' title track.

While 50 Cent's "Big Rich Town" has served as the opening of Power and Power Book II: Ghost, "Part of the Game" picks up the mantle for Raising Kanan, the '90s-set prequel about the early years of Ghost's (Omari Hardwick) friend-turned-enemy Kanan. Mekai Curtis takes over the role from 50 Cent, and will be joined by an ensemble cast that includes Omar Epps (House), London Brown (Ballers), and Joey Bada$$ (Mr. Robot).

"We are patterning it after Marvel, where different characters come in and out of other people’s shows," Power creator Courtney Kemp previously told EW of her world-building plan. "So there’s crossovers and some of your favorite characters will come back, even if they don’t get their own spin-off, they will show up in places. We’re trying to really do it for the fans, to give the most of what they want."

Watch the "Part of the Game" video, directed by 50 Cent and Eif Rivera, above for an extended preview of Kanan, which premieres this summer on Starz.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
