One thing I love about 50 is that he never bites his tongue or minces his words. The Queens rapper recently took to Instagram putting Starz on blast for the treatment of his hit show ‘Power’. Even though Power is Starz’s highest rated show, the network only green lit 10 episodes for this current season, leaving less room to really flesh of the story. Seemingly fed up with the disrespect, 50 is threatening to take his talents elsewhere.

Sunday’s episode, which saw the deaths of two major characters played by Anika Noni Rose and J.R. Ramirez, was originally planned to be a two-parter to include some additional storylines. However, according to showrunner Courtney Kemp, Starz didn’t agree to extend the episode order, resulting in just one packed episode. Kemp said that as a result, the episode lost some story elements.
“Unfortunately, Starz would not give us the extra episode,” Kemp told Entertainment Weekly. “I asked them for 12 episodes for season 4 and they would not do it. So because they would not do it, we had to make it one episode.”
