Is 50 Cent The Victim Or The Thief?

There is a lot of talk surrounding 50 Cent and his Starz series, Power. The trouble began earlier this month when 50 Cent accused Lee Daniels and his hit show on Fox, Empire, of using the promotional campaign that 50 Cent used for his own show.

According to the Wrap, 50 Cent posted the following on Instagram.

POWER Season 2 is unbelievably good trust me. I have the best writers and show runner. I like Terrence Howard and Taraji Henson. I don’t like that they would copy the marketing.”

50 Cent later deleted the post.

Those are some pretty big accusations for anyone to make, let alone someone who is now being accused of the same thing.

According to AllHipHop News, 50 Cent is being accused of stealing the idea for his show from someone else.

Queens native, Curtis “The Snake Charmer” Scoon, was very vocal on Twitter about the theft of a show concept that Scoon had been developing since 2008. Scoon held nothing back on Twitter, openly accusing 50 Cent of stealing the “idea for Power from a script he developed for a potential project titled Dangerous.”

Scoon commented, at times cryptically, about the whole situation and the unfairness of it all.

Scoon’s rant about 50 Cent and the theft of his idea has been continually updated since news first broke of his accusations. At this time, while he’s quick to accuse others, 50 Cent has not responded to Scoon’s accusations.
