50 Cent is planning on quitting his Power TV series on Starz following a Golden Globes snub. When the rapper found out his show hadn’t been listed amongst the nominees he took to Instagram to express his frustration. Donald Glover’s show, Atlanta, on the other hand received two nominations.

“I’m on the move again,” he posted. “Golden globe’s can suck a d*ck. 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 sh*t to do. #EFFENVODKA.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the season three debut of Power grossed 2.26 million viewers and was the most-watched episode of any Starz original show. The rapper is the executive producer of the drama, which is set in New York. He also plays the character Kanan. The show was recently renewed for a fourth and fifth season.

In addition to his rant, 50 also posted a photo of Floyd Mayweather, a professional boxer, against a backdrop for the show. The post suggests that Mayweather may be stepping in to replace the rapper as Kanan.

“I’m off the POWER train, champ is gonna do the show,” 50 posted under the photo. “Go to him for more info, I gotta do something different.#EFFENVODKA.”

Mayweather has yet to issue a response to the posts.
