50cent is getting a new ride, and it’s not a Benz or a Bentley. On April 10, the rapper is appearing on the series premiere of SyFy’s “Dream Machines,” a reality show that takes popular vehicles from TV, film, and comic books and brings them to life. Following Floridian brothers Marc and Shanon Parker of Parker Brothers Concepts, each hour-long episode will feature high-profile clientele or large organizations asking the brothers and their quirky crewman to make their fantastical visions a reality, with 50 as their first customer.
Mr. Jackson will appear in the first two episodes of the series, as his request fell nothing short of extreme. In the episode titled“50 Cent’s Jet Car,” 50 asks for a Formula One race car with a futuristic space ship exterior. His request comes at the expense of brother Shanon’s phobia of flying when the duo took to a dog-fight in actual jet-fighters to get inspiration for 50’s new whip. Then, to make things even worse on the Parker bros, 50 moves the deadline for the completed vehicle up, jeopardizing the usable success of his design.
Will 50’s vision become a reality or a nightmare? “Dream Machines” airs on April 10th at 10pm on SyFy.
