blame it on Shake July 25, 2018

Back in 2013, 50 Cent and Kendrick Lamar teamed up for a song called “We Up.” Five years later, the duo are back at it—this time, sharing screen time on an episode of POWER.

Although the details of his role are yet to be revealed, TV Line is reporting Sunday’s episode, titled Happy Birthday, “finds the St. Patricks gathered to celebrate Tariq’s first birthday since Raina’s death. Tasha, meanwhile, finds a shoulder to cry on in Terry Silver; Ghost begins acting reckless after learning that Dre is ready to replace him in the legitimate world; and Kanan and Tariq bond over their shared mistrust of Ghost.”

“Kendrick is a once-in-a-generation talent and [series creator] Courtney [A. Kemp], 50 and I felt it would be exciting to create a role for him in POWER,” executive producer Mark Canton said via statement. “Everyone involved is thrilled to have him join the family.”

Tune into STARZ on Sunday, July 29—or Saturday night, if you’ve got the app. Until then, let’s revisit Kendrick’s stellar verse on Rapsody’s Laila’s Wisdom single, “Power.”
