Hip hop’s original troll, 50 Cent, is a man who managed to beat all of the odds. When he was on the mixtape scene, few picked him to actually overthrow Murder Inc., until he did it. On the TV scene, he brought the same reckless abandon to “Empire,” and its cast.
50 Cent’s show, “Power,” starring Omari Hardwick, debuted on Starz, a year prior. But, when “Empire,” starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson premiered, it came with record ratings. With them being number one, 50 Cent insulted the show at every turn.
“Empire” has noticeably struggled with ratings, since season two, and when it was renewed for this season, it was announced as the show’s final season. Throughout the show’s run, 50 Cent has feuded with Taraji P. Henson, clowning her for everything, and she emotionally spoke on this, on T.I.’s podcast, last week. Catching wind of this, 50 Cent offered his “sincere” apology, telling her he’s sorry no one watches her show anymore and that his, “The Notorious Cop,” is replacing it, next season.
