Another week, another Instagram clash featuring 50 Cent.
Power and Being Mary Jane are two hugely successful drama series that feature black actors and storylines. Both have famous executive producers: 50 Cent and Gabrielle Union, respectively.
Recently, 50 Cent announced his new late night talk show coming to BET which will be featuring a lot of black comedians.
The rapper took to Instagram and fired shots at an unnamed TV series (we’re guessing Empire) he described as the primary competition for his Starz TV series Power, implying that the show was getting irrelevant and he was going to take over BET.
A short while later, Gabrielle Union, who stars in her own BET series, Being Mary Jane, responded to 50 cent’s caption, saying that the rapper should abstain from negativity and that there was enough space for everyone to shine.
The controversial actor who plays Kanan in Power quickly took a screenshot of her comment, which he replied to with another contentious caption
You keep it up I’m a tell Dwyane, because I feel like your picking a fight with me. He ain’t gonna like this s**t. LOL #50Centralbet
The rapper is known for stirring up drama, he pulled a similar stunt in June when he compared Empire to American comedy series Glee.
