No one’s safe from 50 Cent’s slanderous ways. Throughout the years, Fif’s gained a reputation as a bully. Rap adversaries might get it the worst but that doesn’t mean that he’ll hold back against anyone else. That means even broadcasting partners and celebrities can face his wrath at any time. Fif targeted Starz over the years yet they continue to work with him because of successful series like BMF and Power. Though he said he wanted to purchase the latter from Starz, the show continues to air on their platform.
It’s clear that Fif’s had grievances with Starz in the past. During his appearance on The Beat, he explained that Fox offered him a non-exclusive clause in his contract. “It’s an opportunity to work with Fox and then, there’s the non-exclusive part of it… ‘Cause my last deal was an exclusive deal with Starz,” he explained. Still, Starz undoubtedly relies heavily on 50’s roster of TV series to help rake in subscriptions and big bucks.
50 Cent Slams New Starz Show
Earlier this week, Starz announced that they picked up the first season of Three Women, starring Shailene Woodley, Betty Gilpin, DeWanda Wise and Gabrielle Creevy. Showtime initially released the show, though the producers of Three Women began to shop it around afterward. The network stated confirmed that they didn’t want to move forward with the series as part of their Paramount+ integration. “The show is anchored by such remarkable talent both in front of and behind the camera and aligns perfectly with our commitment to telling stories by, for and about women,” said Alison Hoffman, President, Domestic Networks, of Starz.
Of course, 50 Cent couldn’t help to chime in on the matter. With knowledge of the behind-the-scenes affair, the mogul described the series as a “dud.” “what do you call a fire cracker that don’t go off? a Dud, Yeah i think this is a Dud LOL,” he captioned a post, which included a screenshot of Deadline’s article featuring Woodley’s face. Evidently, Fif isn’t enthusiastic about the series but he’s undoubtedly excited to debut the next season of Power Book II: Ghost, which arrives later this month.
