Actress Taraji P. Henson joined T.I. on his “Expeditiously” podcast to discuss among other things 50 Cent ad the Power vs. Empire beef.
50 Cent has taken several public jabs at Henson’s show Empire with 50 the show as direct competition to his hit show Power.
Henson addressed 50’s jabs and pointed out the differences between the two shows, as well as stating that tearing down another black person for competition was a foolish exercise.
Our show has nothing to do with his show, we’re talking two different subject matters. Does he understand what I did to get here? Why tear down another black person for competition? There are a million other shows he can compete with? And to do that publically, it’s embarrassing.”
Some of 50’s shots include him causing Empire of stealing Power’s marketing strategy in a now-deleted Instagram post.
POWER Season 2 is unbelievably good trust me. I have the best writers and showrunner. I like Terrence Howard and Taraji Henson. I don’t like that they would copy the marketing.”
Empire is in its sixth and final season.
