In the world of 50 Cent, there’s not enough space for two successful television programs with Black cast and similar story lines. This week, the rapper continued his social media assault on Empire, FOX’s rival to his executive produced cable program, POWER.
Fiddy took to IG to declare there’s a reason the hit show Empire is on network television:
“EMPIRE is some sh*t you should get for free. Now that power is worth paying for, STARZ premium cable. SAT, 9pm😳 lol #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #SMSAUDIO.”
Fifty and Taraji Henson got into a little social media back and forth in December after the Jamaican Queens native wrote in an Instagram post:
“POWER Season 2 is unbelievably good trust me. I have the best writers and show runner. I like Terrence Howard and Taraji Henson. I don’t like that they would copy the marketing.”
Henson later responded, tweeting: “I pay attention to $’s NOT cents.”
