50 Cent’s latest offer to Howard sparked excitement in the comment section from fans eyeing up a potential role for the two former Empire actors in his TV universe.

Terrence Howard: “Sooner Or Later You’ve Got To Stand Up”

“I can’t say for certain this was a racial issue, but I can’t imagine another counterpart – a white counterpart – with the same accolades, name recognition and numbers that I had, receiving the lowball pay that I was receiving,” Howard explained to Rolling Stone

He continued, “I drank the Kool-Aid. I believed that I was going to get paid, or that I was getting compensated properly, but I wasn’t. I just didn’t want to p### off CAA and Fox. They’re big companies to go to war against. But sooner or later you’ve got to stand up, because they’re just trampling over the rights of the artists.”
