Music mogul Russell Simmons knows they say it’s a big rich town. The hip-hop executive has publicly co-signed rap star 50 Cent‘s must-watch “Power” series.

Simmons went to Instagram Friday (September 23) and revealed “Power” had an edge even over the annual Emmy Awards ceremony.


A few hours ago, Fif acknowledged how much his “Power” series has flourished this season.


Last weekend, retired NBA star Allen Iverson came through for a “Power” viewing party.

I ran into bubba chuck, my man A.I came threw to kick it with me.
