50 Cent has revealed how much STARZ paid him per episode…and it was not a lot of money.
Fif, who has spoken out about his challenges working with STARZ, says he tried to renegotiate his contract.
“Every two years, it felt like we was auditioning for a major carrier,” he said to Vulture. “It’s time to renegotiate, and it would be an issue. So for me at that point, really what it is, is racism. Because the project is a success, but the platforms are not necessarily acknowledging things that have diversity connected to them. I’m outperforming a lot of the shows that they had in the award-show ceremony, and they’re not putting the work in the awards show, even to watch it lose.”
Fif then spilled the tea about his pay.
“There’s no one that could come and tell me to take $17,000 to act and executive produce and make music. I gave them the theme song for Power. I gave them the things that connected, hopefully, in a different way for it. You see what I’m saying? All those things for $17,000 per episode? I get paid more to go to the nightclub and wave.”
So why did he agree to such a low amount?
“I wanted to make it so bad,” he said. “When I was talking to executive producer Mark Canton in the beginning, I was like, ‘Nah, I got to be like this.'”
