50 Cent and Starz have squashed their beef and the rapper just announced that more Power and more other shows could be coming your way on the network.
Remember on Sunday 50 Cent urged his Power fans to cancel their membership for Starz after the season four finale. The G-Unit rapper and the premium network have been having issues for the most part this year and he has been very vocal about it on his social media pages. Seems all of that recent rant about Starz paid off because Fiddy just revealed on Instagram that he cut a new deal with the network.
“I just got off with Chris Albrecht, head of STARZ,” he wrote on IG. “New Deal More POWER coming your way, next season there will be less of a Wait. Thanks for supporting me, I can’t believe how much money they just gave me. That sh*t just f***ed with my nerves my hand is shaking. LOL TURN THAT SH*T BACK ON NOW.”
That is a far cry from the bold statement that he made on Sunday just before the Power season four finale aired when he told everyone who watched the show to unsubscribed from Starz as soon as they are finished watching the episode. Power is currently one of the top shows currently on TV in terms of ratings and the highest rated show ever to be on Starz. So you can imagine the leverage 50 Cent currently has with the network. The rap legend is currently gearing up to launch a new show on BET called 50 Central later this month.
50 Cent didn’t reveal how much money he got from Starz to make him so happy but if you should guess it’s 10s of million of dollars. Ghost, Tasha, and Tommy deserve a pay raise. Check out the post that Fiddy made on IG on Tuesday below.
