(AllHipHop News) Two of the most popular dramas on cable television are about to go head-to-head.
With season 7 of Game Of Thrones debuting on July 16, HBO’s monster hit will be in the same time slot as the Starz record breaker Power.
The program’s executive producer and star Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson was questioned about Power competing against the fantasy series on Sunday nights.
“The only show on premium cable, period, that Power‘s behind is Game Of Thrones,” said 50 during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! “That’s why I started it early.”
Starz brought back the fourth season of Power on June 25, nearly one month before G0T is scheduled to make its highly anticipated return.
When Kimmel asked who made the decision to put Power up against Game of Thrones, 50 replied, “That’s what I wanted to do.”
The Queens-raised entertainer added, “Game of Thrones – you might not be into that age of things. You’re talking about a different period piece. You wanna go back way over there? Or you wanna see something that’s happening now?”
50 Cent is no stranger to competition.
His music career included feuding with numerous other rappers, and he took repeated shots at Empire when that Fox series debuted in 2015.
