This is because majority of the casts of the Starz produced series are black people.
“I like to say it’s racial. That’s the easy way to get out of things,
“People who are running and are connected to these ceremonies are not cool people.” 50 said.
50 – as he is mostly called – also a producer of the show, made this speech whiles he was being interviewed by the media. After his speech, the creator of the series, Courtney Kemp – jokingly said “Now we will never get one.”
The Rapper-Actor also revealed that he has experienced many racial ‘abuse’ as a black person so he knows when someone has the mark on him or the people around him. He shared his experience on when he released his debut album in 2003 and got no awards for it, even though he did an absolutely phenomenal job that time.
“This project is the same material I used for my music,” he said. “I didn’t receive an award for best new artist when I had the largest debut for a hip-hop album. I sold more records for a first album today. I look at it the same. I’m going to make the numbers. The viewership before we’re done with it, they’ll be looking around saying ‘Yeah, we (expletive) up again.”
