50 Cent’s ‘Power’ vs. ‘Empire’ Marketing Promotion

Idea theft in the entertainment industry? Well, that’s nothing new.

Folks get accused of stealing ideas all the time while the accused “borrowers” dismiss the similarity by calling it “inspiration.”

Whatever the case, it’s bound to happen.

In the latest battle, rapper and creator of Starz drama series Power, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is accusing the upcoming Fox drama Empire of stealing their marketing strategy.

A man of various business ventures, 50 hopped on Instagram and dished a twisted applause to the hip-hop drama series scheduled to premiere in January.

Power will see its second season in January 2015.
