50 Cent Blasts Starz For Giving Him $17K Per 'Power' Episode

50 Cent has called out Starz many times over his show Power, which he executive produces, and now we know why.

During an interview with Vulture, 50 said the network underpaid him and he chalks it up to racism.

“Every two years, it felt like we was auditioning for a major carrier,” he explained. “It’s time to renegotiate, and it would be an issue. So for me at that point, really what it is, is racism. Because the project is a success, but the platforms are not necessarily acknowledging things that have diversity connected to them."

"I’m outperforming a lot of the shows that they had in the award-show ceremony, and they’re not putting the work in the awards show, even to watch it lose," added 50.

The G-Unit honcho then said he took a large pay cut when he went from the music industry to television.

“There’s no one that could come and tell me to take $17,000 to act and executive produce and make music,” said 50. “I gave them the theme song for Power. I gave them the things that connected, hopefully, in a different way for it. You see what I’m saying? All those things for $17,000 per episode? I get paid more to go to the nightclub and wave.”

Did you think Starz was paying 50 more than that?
