Is 50 Cent Still Trying To Get In On The Empire Hype?

50 Cent has been talking a lot of junk about Fox’s popular show Empire; he even went as far as calling it the Hip-Hop version of Glee. While 50 Cent may really hate the show it seems more like the attention seeking rapper is trying to get more attention and publicity while the show is hot (by talking about it). Before the show even aired 50 was saying that the show stole the marketing campaign of his own show Power. At the time that accusation led to a back-and-forth exchange between 50 and Taraji P. Henson. 50 has since stated on MTV that he would like to date Taraji and that she shouldn’t listen to people when he says things because he says things he doesn’t mean (another attention seeking interview). Then last night during the Empire finale. 50 Cent posted a picture with the words “Are Built” with the caption saying “Empires are built on POWER and Power returns on June 6.” A fan replied to 50 saying the two shows aren’t the same and to let them eat. 50 replied saying, “I don’t watch that sh*t.” Seeing how shady the Power commercials that were shown during the Empire finale were, and 50’s post, 50 cent is trying to get some publicity off it’s hype anyway he can.
