Remember that time a few weeks ago when 50 Cent got really, really pissed off that his penis was in an episode of his hit show, Power, in its full, um… glory? He went on Instagram and spazzed out on show producer/creator Courtney Kemp and the two exchanged words on social media.
Well, 50 is sticking to his guns. He went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (Aug. 23) and further explained why he was so angry about his member making a very special appearance during that now infamous scene. Basically, his auntie saw it, and that wasn’t cool, man.
“My aunt sees the show, and she’s like, ‘I’m traumatized. She texted me like, ‘What the f–k? Why didn’t you tell me?’” the rapper said.
Also, he says in the previous edits, the shot was darkened, so you couldn’t see much, however, that certainly wasn’t the case in the final version that aired.
“I knew it was there, but in the original clips, it was darker. It wasn’t on, like, a big screen, like a life-sized version,” 50 said. “It wasn’t like, an accident. Courtney was like, ‘I didn’t want to show it to you in the beginning, because I didn’t think you needed to see it at that point…You just gotta take one for the team.’”
At the end of the day, 50 got over it, fans got a good glimpse of his manhood, and all is well in the world, especially since he’s continuing to build his resume in film and television. He’s currently working on a television series focusing on the drug ring, B.M.F, and recently got personal approval from the incarcerated leader, Big Meech. He’s also executive producing a new show on Starz called Tomorrow, Today.
