50 Cent merged the worlds of hip-hop and entertainment during the screening of the second season of Starz's drama Power at the Best Buy Theater in the heart of Times Square on Tuesday night (June 3). Attendees -- contest winners, media and celebrities -- exclusively mingled with Starz employees and the cast of Power who all celebrated the show's return this summer, June 6 (9 PM ET/PT). The screening was followed by a chock-full performance from 50 Cent and G-Unit, Joe, Elle Varner, Jeremih, Machine Gun Kelly, Remo the Hitmaker and Troy Ave, along with his B$B crew.
Despite the rainy weather and heavy traffic that pushed back the 7 p.m. start time 40 minutes, CEO of Starz Chris Albrecht and the show's executive producer Courtney Kemp Agboh opened the night with a round of thanks to everyone involved. "Of course, when you have a TV show, it takes a few important people to do it -- mainly the cast and the crew," Albrecht said. "We have an amazing cast; I’m not going to mention names. You know who they are. You will see them on screen. You will see them in a lot of places. It's an amazing crew."
"I just wanted to say, to my crew, it is so cold in New York in the winter and I appreciate it," Agboh added. "And for those of you who love the show and don’t know they are the ones who make my dream come true."
