50 Cent has always been one to speak his mind especially when he doesn’t agree with the doings of others. It was no surprise when the outspoken rapper-turned-businessman took to Instagram and vented about FOX’s new television series, Empire, seeming to be similar to his Starz series, Power.

Posting a promotional video of Power’s 2015 return, 50 Cent captioned: “POWER Season 2 is unbelievably good trust me. I have the best writers and show runner. I live Terrence Howard and Taraji Henson. I don’t like that they would copy the marketing. #SMSAUDIO #FRIGO #POWERTV”

In a post prior to that, 50 shared a picture of Terrence Howard – the main character in Empire – and Omari Hardwick, the main character in Power side-by-side with a caption reading: “Empire VS. Power LADIES what’s up you be the judge LMAO #SMSAUDIO FRIGO #POWERTV”

Do you think 50 is overreacting or is Empire a regurgitated version of Power?
