50 Cent Thanks NAACP After “Power Book II: Ghost” Wins Multiple Image Awards


50 Cent posted a thank you video on Instagram following the 52nd NAACP Image Awards, during which Power won three trophies. 

Power Book II: Ghost was named Outstanding Drama Series.  Mary J. Blige took home the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role in the show. Wu-Tang Clan’s Method Man won the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his role.

“I’d like to thank the NAACP for recognizing the work of the cast and crew of Ghost: Michael Rainey, Mary J. Blige, Clifford Smith better known as ‘M-E-T-H-O-D Man.’ We are excited that the fans are still continuing to support the Power universe,” 50 says in the video posted to his Instagram.

The wins were clearly important for 50, who previously called out the Emmys for showing a lack of love for the series: “Ok here it is Emmy’s, My Black ass for your consideration to kiss,” he said last August. “Fuck your organization I only care about NAACP awards.”

Power was never nominated for an Emmy, but it won several NAACP awards.

50 also went after the Emmys back in 2019: “The EMMY’s can kiss my black ass in slow motion. Fuck em I’m #1 They a bunch of Bengay my back hurt smelling ass old people anyway.”
