50 Cent believes that his popular show, Power has once again been snubbed by the Emmys for “racial” reasons.
Fofty took part in a panel at the Television Critics Association, and did not hold back about his feelings on the rejection:
“I like to say it’s racial. That’s the easy way to get out of things,” said the rapper and executive producer of the series, per AP. “People who are running and connected to these ceremonies are not necessarily cool people.”
But 50 says this is not the first time he’s encountered this kind of thing:
“This project is the same material I used for my music,” he said. “I didn’t receive an award for best new artist when I had the largest debut for a hip-hop album. I sold more records for a first album today. I look at it the same. I’m going to make the numbers. The viewership before we’re done with it, they’ll be looking around saying ‘Yeah, we (expletive) up again,'” he explained.
Power has consistently been the top-rated show on the STARZ network since it’s premiere.
