50 Cent isn’t here for your ‘Power’ theme song complaints
They say this is a big, rich town, but there apparently isn’t a need for it to have more than one theme song version.
The sixth and final season of the hit Starz series “Power” debuted Sunday night and while there was plenty to grapple with in the story lines (no spoilers here), there was also some drama over the opening credits.
The theme song for the show, “Big Rich Town,” was remixed with singer Trey Songz and didn’t go over as well as the original featured singer Joe.
“I need @Power_STARZ to keep the original version of their theme song cause Trey songs version ain’t it,” one person tweeted.
Former star of the show and executive producer, rapper 50 Cent, raps on both versions and didn’t appear to appreciate the criticism.
“Y’all just wanta f**k with me today, talking bout put my song back or I’m a f**k you up 50,” he wrote in a NSFW Instagram posting. “Chill out alright, did you like the episode?”
In a video making the rounds on social media, Fiddy also used some colorful language to explain that Songz did the remix as a favor for him, but that if people keep complaining he’ll have to go back to the original song.
