‘Power Book IV: Force’: 50 Cent Calls Starz ‘Incompetent’ for Episode 9 Leak

Power Book IV: Force Season 1 only has two episodes remaining before it goes dark. Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) is starting to find his way in Chicago. However, he’s already made some enemies in the Windy City. He’s found himself at odds with the Chicago Brothers Incorporated (CBI) which is headed by brothers Diamond (Issac Keys) and Jenard (Kris D. Lofton). He’s also caused some issues for the Flynn family, headed by Irish mob boss, Walter Flynn (Tommy Flanagan).

Now, ahead of the season finale, Force episode 9 has leaked and executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is calling Starz out for it.

‘Power Book IV: Force’ Episode 9 has leaked

“Trust”, the penultimate episode of the first season of Force has leaked. The episode is supposed to debut on Sunday, April 10, 2022. However, it has somehow hit the airwaves ahead of its scheduled premiere according to 50 Cent. The official Starz description for the episode reads, “Vic faces a devastating loss. Walter is ready to go to war and sends for heavy hitters. Tommy soon realizes he needs more power but is turned down by one of his closest allies and is forced to turn to an unlikely resource.”

Fans were thrilled to see Tommy branching out on his own in the Power Universe, but took some time for Force to catch its stride. Now that it has, an episode leak is probably one of the last things anyone at the network would have wanted.

50 Cent is absolutely furious about it.

50 Cent has called Starz incompetent for the leak

There is no word yet on why or how Force episode 9 leaked. However, this isn’t the first time something like this happened. One of the executive producer’s other series, BMF had an episode leak ahead of time. It made 50 Cent especially angry since he’d directed the episode and Eminem had a cameo in said episode.

Now, 50 Cent is dealing with the leak of Force episode 109. On Instagram, he screenshotted several tweets that not only announced the leak but also shared major plot points and spoilers from the episode. “Somebody leaked episode 9 of Force and I’m telling u this is the best episode this season,” the Twitter user shared. If you have STARZ you can watch episode 9 of Power Force.” Another tweet summed up the plot of the episode entirely.

50 Cent commented on his post, “See they leaked the episode again these people are incompetent. I went to Harvard, so the f*** what ! SMH.”

At present episode 9 does not seem to be available on the Starz app, but it’s clear that some people were able to see it early.

The ‘Power’ Universe will go on hiatus for six-months

The season 1 finale of Force is set to air on April 17. Though filming for Power Book III: Raising Kanan Season 2 is complete or very near to it, there won’t be another 50 Cent series on TV for six months. This is probably the reason why the network stretched out the tail end of Force.

This gap in programming is also likely adding to 50 Cent’s fury over leaked episodes, but with the high praise of “Trust” it may also push more people to tune in.
