50 Cent loves trolling and beefing on Instagram but when he’s not doing that, he is busy making power moves behind the scenes.
His Starz show POWER has seen a rise in popularity every season and with the fifth one running at a solid viewership as well, the executive producer of the show has a big guest lined up on episode 5 this Sunday. After he teased on Instagram that an unexpected guest will appear on this week’s show, it has now been announced that the person is none other than Kendrick Lamar.
“Yeah you know I’m different, wait till you see Power this Sunday. Your not going to believe who we got on the show,” 50 wrote on Instagram on Tuesday. The Pulitzer Prize winner will make a special appearance in the Courtney A. Kemp-created show that airs Sunday, July 29th at 8PM ET/PT on STARZ and will be available for download and streaming on the STARZ app and STARZ ON DEMAND starting at 12:01AM ET.
Said executive producer Mark Canton, “Kendrick is a once in a generation talent and Courtney, 50 and I felt it would be exciting to create a role for him in ‘Power.’ Everyone involved is thrilled to have him join the family.” The upcoming episode 505 is titled “Happy Birthday” where the St. Patricks celebrate Tariq’s birthday for “the first time without Raina and Tasha finds a shoulder to cry on in Terry Silver. Ghost is on the outs with Tate and the Queens Child Project and discovers Dre is ready to replace him in the legitimate world, driving him toward reckless behavior. Kanan drops Tariq back at school, the two of them bonding over their shared mistrust of Ghost.”
