Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson is a successful rapper, actor, entertainment mogul, and investor . . . and now he's a famous director also.

50's directorial debut happened last night. He directed episode 3 of his hit Starz show, Power, and the overwhelming response was that 50 did a great job.

It was a risky move for the rapper/mogul - who had never directed a full length TV project before. But the risk paid off, and fans are saying that episode 3 was the best episode of the season so far.

50 went on Instagram yesterday to thank the cast and crew from Power, for helping make his transition from actor to director so seamless.

Here's 50, telling fans what it was like to direct the show:

50's first decision as director of episode 3 - was to change the theme song. The new season of Power replaced R&B singer Joe with Trey Songz. But after an outpouring of support for the old theme - 50 switched gears are re-instated the old "Joe" song.
