(AllHipHop News) Back in 2015, rapper/TV producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson launched a social media assault against Fox’s Empire television series.
Two years later, 50 is claiming his Starz drama Power won the war against Empire, so it appears he’s turned his attention to his new variety show 50 Central on BET.
The New York native wrote on Instagram:
Remember that other show that thought they were in competition with POWER, what happened to it? I don’t hear anyone talking sh-t anymore. ?Now I’m gonna take over BET. LOL #50Centralbet
Gabrielle Union, star of BET’s Being Mary Jane, responded to 50’s message:
I don’t compete with other artists, only celebrate. Enough space for all of us to succeed. Cheers to #Power and cheers to creative folks uplifting each other. ALL our programming could use more shine, so I opt to [uplift]. I know that celebrating other folks in no way dims my shine. Keep shining [50 Cent].
50 then replied to Union:
[Gabrielle Union] ?I’m never gonna argue with you because your [Dwyane Wade’s] lady, I like [Dwayne] I got a lot of respect for him. this post has nothing to do with you but you know I’m gonna be #1 at BET, and I want you to know your Mary Jane show is welcome on my network. LOL
The G-Unit leader then posted the entire exchange as a photo on IG, adding in the caption:
You keep it up I’m a tell Dwyane, because I feel like your picking a fight with me. He ain’t gonna like this sh-t. LOL #50Centralbet
50 also took a shot at Irv Gotti’s BET Hip Hop anthology Tales:
