New York rapper 50 Cent wants everyone to put some respect on “Power” – even “Game of Thrones” fans. The hip-hop stud has stepped up to flex his hit series’ numbers.
50 went to Instagram Thursday (August 3) and explained why more attention should be placed on “Power” going up against HBO’s signature series every Sunday.
This week, 50 Cent suggested “Power” fans cut off their Starz subscriptions when season four wraps up.
Earlier the same day, 50 also fired off some warning shots at Starz.
A few nights ago, “Power” creator Courtney Kemp explained why Sunday’s episode felt so crammed with storylines.
“We only have 10 episodes, so we’re often in a situation where we have to pack in a lot of story because we want to get certain places by the end of the season. In the case of episode six, it was originally conceived of as a Tommy only episode. We were going to do two separate episodes: One was going to be Ghost, Kanan, Tariq, Jukebox, and the kidnapping; and one was going to be just Tommy on his journey to Chicago and what happens there. Unfortunately, Starz would not give us the extra episode. I asked them for 12 episodes for season 4 and they would not do it. So because they would not do it, we had to make it one episode. That’s the real answer. The upshot was that we had to lose some story lines and some story.” (EW)
