Recently, Joe Budden took to Twitter to comment on the hit shows, Empire and Power.

After Power's Twitter sent out a tweet that included their new slogan, "Empires are built on Power," the New Jersey rapper stated, "Empires are built on Power"….They petty LOL." This caused the G-Unit general and producer of Power, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, to react by replying to Joe Budden's initial tweet with, "@JoeBudden what you say bitch!!. I thought we was cool."

Apparently, 50 Cent thought Joe was taking shots at his show Power, which caused the misunderstanding between both MCs. Budden would eventually follow up with a tweet of his own directed to Fifty clearing up the confusion his initial tweet created and stated that Power was his favorite show.


The problems between 50 Cent and Joe Budden first began in 2004. Eventually, both MCs managed to patch things up and reform onstage together in 2008. Luckily for fans, this misunderstanding won't be escalating to another level and will stay in the Twitter world.
