50 Cent Slams Emmys for Snubbing 'Power'

Get the strap.

Following the season premiere of “Power,” 50 Cent is going off on the Emmys. Taking to Instagram, the show’s executive producer shared the ratings for the Starz drama, which delivered 1.47 million viewers for its initial airing Sunday, the biggest on-air debut for a premium cable series this summer.

Despite its popularity, the series has consistently been snubbed by the Emmys, which angered Fif.

“The EMMY’s can kiss 😘 my black ass 🎥 in slow motion,” he wrote. “Fuck em I’m #1 They a bunch of Bengay my back hurt smelling ass old people anyway.”

This is not the first time 50 has slammed the Emmys. He previously said that race may play a role in why the show has been overlooked throughout the years.

“I like to say it’s racial,” he said at the Television Critics Association Press Tour last month. “That’s the easy way to get out of things. People who are running and connected to these ceremonies are not necessarily cool people.”

“Power,” which premiered its sixth and final season on Sunday (Aug. 25), has become one of Starz’s most popular shows, but it has not translated into Emmy nominations.

50 compared the snub to his 2003 debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’, which didn’t win any Grammys. “This project is the same material I used for my music,” he said. “I didn’t receive an award for Best New Artist when I had the largest debut for a hip-hop album. I sold more records for a first album today. I look at it the same. I’m going to make the numbers. The viewership before we’re done with it, they’ll be looking around saying ‘Yeah, we fucked up again.'”
