Earlier this year the rapper/actor/producer threatened to take “Power” somewhere else and STARZ even allegedly accused the mogul of leaking this season’s episodes once he didn’t get his way.
On Sunday, 50 headed to his Instagram account to prior to the season finale and captioned a photo “I don’t think the Starz network realize your watching POWER because it’s my show.” He also told fans to cut off the network’s service with their cable provider after watching the episode. “So take STARZ out of your cable package after you see POWER tonight. Then they will understand I bet. #50centralbet”
If you were not aware, “Power” is STARZ highest rated program, and Mr. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson just wants part of the credit for the premium cable channel’s competitivness on Sunday nights.
BTW, 50 Cent is no dummy. He has other TV irons in the fire. One of them is a show premiering on BET later this month called “50 Central.”
Meanwhile, back at STARZ, we have the feeling that the net is going to give him what he wants if only to keep its name out of his mouth.
