Rapper 50 Cent has hit out at the Emmy Awards after his crime drama “Power” was once again snubbed on the shortlist for the annual ceremony.
50 Cent has slammed the Emmy Awards after his crime drama missed out on a nomination.
The 45-year-old rapper – whose real name is Curtis Jackson – has hit out at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in a foul mouthed rant after his Starz series ‘Power’ was once again snubbed for the annual shortlist.
Sharing a photo of a bare bottom on Instagram, he wrote: “OK here it is Emmy’s. My Black a** for your consideration to kiss.
“F*** your organization I only care about NAACP awards. #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi (sic)”
Despite proving a hit for the network since its premiere six years ago – and being popular with viewers and critics alike – ‘Power’ hasn’t translated that into Emmy success.
The show – which starred the likes of Omari Hardwick, Naturi Naughton, Lela Loren, Lala Anthony, Michael Rainey Jr. and Joseph Sikora – came to an end in February after six seasons, and it was never nominated for any prize during its long run.
50 Cent – who played Kanan Stark and also served as executive producer – previously issued a similar statement on the matter following the reveal of last year’s Emmy shortlist.
Alongside a rundown of the programme’s ratings, he said: “The EMMY’s can kiss my black a** in slow motion.
“F*** em I’m #1 They a bunch of Bengay my back hurt smelling a** old people anyway. LOL. (sic)”
While “Power” has ended, Fiddy will again serve as executive producer on spin-off series “Power Book II: Ghost”.
The show – which premieres in September on Starz – will pick up the story days after its predecessor’s finale.
The sequel will follow Michael’s character Tariq as he looks to step out of his father’s shadow and navigate his new life despite pressure to save his family.
