50 Cent takes some more light-hearted shots at Fox's "Empire" in an interview with MTV.
50 Cent hasn't been pleased with FOX's new hit show, Empire, since it's trailer debuted. The rapper feels that the show took a little too much inspiration from his own primetime drama, Power, and has been sporadically taking shots at the series over the last few months. In a new interview with MTV, Fif was asked about the show once again, and while he did have a few nice things to say about it, he found quite a few opportunities to slag the show.
“It’s like Glee,” said 50 with a smirk. "It’s like Glee with a little Hip Hop music in it.”
The G-Unit rapper went on to criticize the series for speeding through the plot. “I was like, ‘Damn. What happened? What happened to the rest of the story?’” He said of Cookie's burst into the pilot. "I don’t know what’s going on. It started moving real fast.”
50 did have a couple of positive things to say about Empire, though it seemed he was peaking more out of respect for personal friends Timbaland and Terrence Howard than anything. “I think it’s good, and I’m happy the show’s successful,” he admitted hesitantly.
