Fiddy (real name Curtis Jackson) is an executive producer on the Starz drama and also co-stars as Kanan. “I’m on the move again, Golden globe’s can suck a dick,” begins the caption to his Instagram post (below). “I accept my series POWER was not intended to be a signature show for the network but it is the highest rated show. I know my audience very well, I’m done promoting this out side of contractual obligations. SEASON 4 KANAN MUST DIE, I got other shit to do.” He then includes the hashtag “#EFFENVODKA” for good measure.

The official response from Starz was slightly more diplomatic. “We are grateful for the excellent work being done on ‘Power’ by the producers, cast and crew,” a spokesperson from the network told Variety in a statement. “We certainly think this exceptional show has been overlooked by various awards committees, but the fans have made it the second most watched show on premium cable in 2016…and those are accolades that mean just as much if not more.” The third season of “Power” recently concluded, and the series has already been renewed for two more.
