50 Cent Accuses FOX’s ‘Empire’ Of Copying His ‘Power’ Marketing


You gotta hand it to 50 Cent: at least most of his trash-talking has to do with his business ventures.

In his latest comments, 50 Cent accuses FOX’S upcoming series Empire, starring Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard, of copying the marketing scheme for his Starz series, Power. Taking to Instagram, the rapper/mogul promoted the upcoming second season of Power. Noting that he “likes” Henson and Howard, he also pointed out what he didn’t like:

“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.”

Empire is the story of a record label executive who finds out he has three months to live and must get his affairs in order with his company. Power chronicles the life a drug lord who secretly wants to leave the game and earn a legal living. Both shows will hit the small screen in 2015.
