50 Cent Tells ‘Power’ Fans Who Slammed Latest (Paz Valdez) Episode: ‘Next Week’s Worst’

50 Cent

*50 Cent has wasted no time responding to backlash over the latest episode of “Power.”

It seems fans of the hit STARZ drama series were hardly entertained by the entire episode being devoted to the character Paz Valdes (Elizabeth Rodriguez), Angela Valdes’ sister. 

50 fired off the following response to critics, “y’all don’t like POWER this week, don’t worry next weeks worst.”

As noted by urbanislandz.com, his follow up statement was a bit more light-hearted, saying, “Nah for real y’all gotta chill out. You can’t just flip on me.”

Peep the post below.

The comments accompanied a post promoting 50’s latest television project with ABC, “For Life,” which will focus on the true story of Isaac Wright, a lawyer who was wrongfully convicted of being a drug kingpin.

“He’s been incarcerated since he was 16. A group of kids that jumped a kid and went to jail and from there, he just never made it out of that scenario,” 50 said of his character on Wednesday, January 8, during the Television Critics’ Association’s winter press tour in Pasaden “He never matured or earned anything. When he got into the penal system and acted out, he started to develop a reputation, and that reputation became more important to him than getting back to nothing. He just learned to comfortably live in that environment, not look forward to getting out.”

The rapper, who will star in the series as well as serves as EP, told Us Weekly exclusively that he plans to drop some new music in the series. 

“There will be new music in the series,” he said, adding that he is hoping to also release new music soon but is waiting for the right time. 

“I just think hip-hop culture is a youth sport,” the Grammy winner said. “I think I’m supposed to put things that are missing into it at points, but not necessarily force my way into being a priority. You see some other guys that still want to have the best verse at 50. You’re not supposed to have the best verse at 50.”

Meanwhile, Paz was unable to pull the trigger on Ghost, so fans will have to tune in to next week’s episode to get closer to finding out whodunit.
