A little over a week after 50 Cent originally took a jab at Fox’s new TV series Empire for what he claims is a marketing plan that copies his own Starz show Power, Empire actor Taraji Henson fired back at the G-Unit founder on Twitter, writing, “I pay attention to $’s NOT cents.”
Now, 50 Cent has responded himself in an Instagram video making light of the back-and-forth while keeping up a bit of playful banter over the competing shows.
“I’m at CES 2015 working #SMSAUDIO,” he wrote in the post’s caption before adding, “@tarajiphenson don’t be mad at me.lol. I love your work girl.”
The Taraji Henson and Terrence Howard-led Empire premiers tonight (January 7) on Fox at 9 pm EST. Timbaland is the show’s executive music producer.
