While most networks might frown upon leaks, 50 Cent says he’s enjoying success because of them. In fact, he’s confessing to being the one responsible for leaking a recent episode of his Starz television program “Power.”
Taking to Instagram, the G-Unit General said that his decision to leak the episode was both wise and lucrative. “POWER Ratings up another 10 percent for episode 408,” he wrote. “😈 They glad I leaked the shit now. LOL #SAVAGELIFE Now watch what I do on BET. #50Centralbet.”
This continues Fiddy’s tumultuous relationship with the network. Last year, he threatened to quit the show after it was snubbed at the Golden Globes. This month, he insinuated that he was willing to leave Starz in a since-deleted Instagram post.
“I woke up feeling a little different about POWER this morning,” 50 wrote. “If the biggest show on your net work doesn’t mean anything, what does your network mean STARZ? I’m taking my talents to south beach fuck this.”
Now, the G-Unit boss is prepping for “50 Central,” a late-night variety show set to launch Sept. 27 on BET. Recently, 50 visited the BET offices and threatened to cancel other shows too. “I’m getting rid of a few shows because I have some good ideas,” he wrote. “Watch how this plays out.”
