50 Cent wants to work with Taraji P. Henson after revealing she fired her entire 'Empire' team: "They dropped the ball"

50 Cent tells Taraji P. Henson he's "ready to work" following ‘Empire’ fumble

New York rap legend turned-television producer is now looking to bring P. Henson into the G-Unit Film & TV division fold after seeing headlines that Taraji P. Henson fired her entire team for failing to capitalize on the popularity of her Empire character Cookie Lyon.

“They dropped the ball fvck em @tarajiphenson I’m ready to work let’s get it ! GLG GreenLightGang G-unit Film&Tv,” 50 Cent, wrote.

Fans had plenty of ideas on how to get Henson involved in the Power universe.

“Make her Monet sister from the south in Power,” one person wrote.

Actor Kris Lofton wants to see Taraji possibly cast as his mother in Season 3 of Power Book IV: Force.

“LETS GET HER TO CHICAGO!!!!! @tarajiphenson THE SAMPSON BROTHERS MOM,” he pleaded.

In addition to gaining 50 Cent’s attention when revealing she fired her entire team for not properly capitalizing on her success as Cookie on Empire, which wrapped in 2020, Henson made other headlines during a teary-eyed SiriusXM interview last week.


The 53-year-old got emotional about how much she’s had to work to stay afloat and manage her finances while being paid a fraction of what some of her peers make.

"I’m tired of working so hard, being gracious at what I do [and] getting paid a fraction of the cost. I’m tired of hearing my sisters say the same thing over and over. You get tired. I hear people go, ‘You work a lot.’ I have to. The math ain’t mathing,"
