New York rapper Tony Yayo is really ride or die for 50 Cent. The Talk of New York has come through to show support for Fif’s “Power” show amid issues between parent network Starz and TV provider Optimum.
This week, Yayo promised to end his Optimum subscription if the service dropped “Power” and Starz.
Over the past 24 hours, 50 Cent and “Power” co-stars Omari Hardwick and Joseph Sikora reacted to the Optimum fallout.
5: I’m telling y’all…they dropped us. Ace Boom: No comment O: wtf? Kanan/Tommy/Ghost: Thas that dumb shit. -ironically i post this while walking to the locker room to wish my guys luck in the game. I think about the beautiful thing about my former world of sports vs. my present. The ball truly don’t lie. You either make the play or you don’t. You either perform at a high level or you wallow in mediocrity. You either become one of the great teams of all times while becoming a unique player or you are never spoken about. We as a team within this industry of television…have become one of the more special ones to ever suit up. & yet in still….certain folk refuse to not only give us our due, they have stupidly chosen to not even allow us to perform anymore for you the millions of beast coast fans. -Fans: Tell @Optimum to bring back POWER! Don’t miss the next season! Call 844-71-STARZ and tell them no! #KeepSTARZ
This week, 50 Cent announced a separate Starz contract issue.
