"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."

Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson isn't happy that his Starz series Power was overlooked for a Golden Globes nomination again.

The show's star and executive producer took to Instagram to express his displeasure about the snub.

He wrote: "I'm on the move again, Golden globe's can suck a dick. 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. #EFFENVODKA"

Power is Starz's biggest hit. In July, its third-season premiere set a network record for live-plus-same-day tune-in with 2.26 million viewers, a 56 percent increase over the same showing the previous year.

Later, he posted another Instagram image, this time of Floyd Mayweather, with a caption that suggested the "champ" may replace him on the show. "I'm off the POWER train, champ is gonna do the show," 50 Cent continued. "Go to him for more info, I gotta do something different.#EFFENVODKA."

A Starz spokesperson responded with the following statement: “We are grateful for the excellent work being done on Power by the producers, cast and crew. 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."
