Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson Plays A Hip Hop Mogul On 'The Finder'

Curtis Jackson AKA 50 Cent made an appearance on "The Finder" (Fri., 8 p.m. ET on Fox) as Big Glade a rap mogul who wanted to hire Walter to find the lost music of a hip-hop pioneer named J-Strike who had died almost exactly ten years prior. Suddenly, some of his unreleased tracks were being leaked onto the Internet, only they were the intellectual property of Glade's character.

Walter took the job mainly because Glade's lawyer, played by Salli Richardson-Whitfield ("Eureka"), has some history with Leo and Walter thinks Leo is the loneliest man he knows. And as anticipated, sparks do indeed fly between the two.

It was all a good diversion while Walter took on the real case as he saw it. He was convinced, based on the samples, that J-Strike was still alive. And he was almost completely right. What he uncovered was that J-Strike was a collaboration between two brothers. One the performer and the other the writer. Only J-Strike the performer had died, in a ridiculous publicity ploy orchestrated by none other than that beautiful lawyer. Now, the brother was trying to rekindle interest in his brother's legacy.

In the end, justice was served in that the lawyer was arrested for her role in the shooting, and the writer half of J-Strike was hired by Big Glade to work with his organization. And he was able to start the emotional healing from the trauma of having accidentally killed his brother.

"The Finder" continues, now on Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
