50 Cent is giving the Golden Globes a piece of mind after the 2017 nominees were revealed and Power was shut out—again.

The actor, rapper and executive producer of the Starz crime-drama spoke about the series failing to be recognized yet again, despite it being the network's most popular show to date. "The Golden Globes can suck a dick," he wrote in the caption of an Instagram photo hours after the nominations were announced. He seemingly declared he wanted his character, Kanan, killed off. "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 shit to do."

Fiddy followed up with another photo, captioning it to indicate he would leave the show entirely. "I'm off the Power train," he wrote. "Champ is gonna do the show. Go to him for more info, I gotta do something different.

As Entertainment Weekly points out, Power had record-breaking ratings for Starz despite the failing to snatch any major recognition in past awards seasons. As for 50's part, his character Kanan has continuously grown in prominence for each season. 

This summer, Starz renewed Power for two more seasons, so there's no indication of what to expect next from 50 or Kanan next. 

Take it back to happier times in this interview where 50 Cent and Power director Courtney Kemp Agboh gave us an inside look at the series:
