Is There A “Beef” Brewing Between Taraji P. Henson And 50 Cent Over Empire’s Alleged Copied Marketing Techniques?

50 & taraji

50 Cent is infamous for starting feuds with other rappers. Now the hip-hop tough guy is beefing with one of Hollywood’s most beautiful actresses, Taraji P. Henson.

Last week, Fif criticized the new Fox series, ‘Empire,’ for copying the marketing tactics used in his Starz drama, ‘Power.’ Henson stars as Cookie Lyon, the ex-wife of Terrence Howard’s character, Lucious Lyon.

“POWER Season 2 is unbelievably good trust me,” the rapper wrote in an Instagram post that has since been deleted. “I have the best writers and show runner. I like Terrence Howard and Taraji Henson. I don’t like that They would copy the Marketing.”

On Monday (Jan. 5), when a fan asked the Oscar-nominated actress what she thought about 50’s criticism, she gave her two cents on the matter.


Henson then tweeted one more final jab at 50, writing, “IJS [I’m just saying] I couldn’t even find the “cent” sign!! #ByeBitch #Empire.”

50 Cent caught wind of Henson’s comments and posted an amusing video of his response.

In the 15-second clip, the New York rapper reads Henson’s tweet on a smartphone.

“That fine motherf—a Taraji talking about me? I was going to date that motherf—a now I have to think about this s— now,” he says before laughing.

No word on where this beef is headed. At the very least, this is good promotion for ‘Empire,’ which premieres on Fox Wednesday (Jan. 7) at 9PM ET.
