50 Cent shows some love for two anchors from his TV show "Power."

50 Cent has been trumpeting the success of his premium cable show Power for some time now, pitting it against HBO's powerhouse Games of Thrones as arguably the best show that paid-for-TV audiences have enjoyed over the past couple of years. Recently, the series was bestowed an honor at the NAACP Image Awards, with Nauti Naughton taking home Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her work as Tasha St. Patrick. Fif was, predictably, very happy with this turn of events.

In a couple of Instagram pictures he shared on Sunday (January 14th), the rapper/producer commented on how proud he was of Naughton's accomplishment. "POWER fans your girl Tasha won [...] I’m so happy for @naturi4realshe works hard this is only the beginning," he said. He also boosted the show's creator Courtney Kemp, who was previously a writer for the acclaimed TV show The Good Wife. Check out both those pictures below.


For Kemp, 50 has arguably even more praise in store, calling her "a beast." His caption goes on to read, "hey might be as good as her but they are not better than her [...] no f**king way." For a show that has garnered so much admiration as of late, it's hard to believe that the powers behind the series' big decisions have continued to let in languish at Starz, which was dropped by a major cable provider in New York. Hopefully that doesn't become a trend in other parts of the country, but it's certainly an aspect of their current deal that might need addressing with the network.

Are you a fan of the show? If so, who's been your favorite character to watch? Let us know in the comments.
