Irv Gotti is doing big things these days. Murder Inc.’s head honcho is not only revitalizing the record label he made famous, but he’s venturing into TV with a brand new show on BET titled Tales.
Described as “a series distilling hip-hop records, envisioning them as cinematic love letters,” Tales is Gotti’s brain child and his way back to the top. And when you’re on top, inevitably, there will be haters. However, Irv’s hater is one he’s had for the last two decades or so — 50 Cent.
With their on-going beef, art may actually end up imitating life. Gotti says episode two of Tales focuses on Meek Mill’s song “Cold Hearted” and tackles issues of jealous and hate in hip hop. In his latest verbal attack, Fiddy claimed he would “slap the sh!t out of” Irv, to which Gotti responded by saying, “Ain’t no one running up on me and slapping me.”
Aside from beef, Irv is really focused on folks tuning into Tales, which premieres Tuesday, June 27th, on BET at 8p/7c. The debut episode is set to explore NWA’s “F- The Police” in a way you might not expect.
