50 Cent has revealed the 'Raising Kanan' theme song and first look footage from the 'Power' spin-off.
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.
