In a plot twist, 50 Cent has put aside the fierce rivalry between two television giants, Empire and Power, set the stage for an unexpected turn of events. Empire is a star-studded family drama centered around a music empire. The show majorly clashed with the gritty underworld depicted in Power where crime and power struggles took center stage.

As the battle of ratings unfolded, so did the tension between the casts, who found themselves on opposing sides of the small screen divide.

Fast forward to the present, and the narrative takes an unforeseen twist. 50 Cent, known for his unapologetic candor, is extending a supportive hand to Taraj. He took to Instagram to say, “They dropped the ball. F--- em @tarajiphenson. I’m ready to work let’s get it! GLG GreenLightGang G-unit Film & TV.”

This unexpected move not only signals a departure from old grudges but it also got fans talking about inequities in Hollywood.
