"Power" is a visionary drama that straddles the glamorous Manhattan lifestyles of the rich and infamous and the underworld of the international drug trade. The cast is led by Omari Hardwick as James "Ghost" St. Patrick, a man trying to escape his role as a drug kingpin for a legitimized life in the elite of NYC; Joseph Sikora as his brother in arms in the drug business, Tommy Egan; Naturi Naughton plays Ghost's fierce wife Tasha St. Patrick; and Lela Loren is his first love, Assistant U.S. Attorney Angela Valdes.

50 Cent requested some measure of artistic control over the show from Starz executives. These requests particularly pertained to the spelling and usage of the N word in written scripts, memos, and notes. He requested the word be spelled "nigga" as opposed to its traditional spelling and that only black actors use the word unless approved by him or his manager. 50 Cent also wanted some artistic control over how the relations between white police officers and black or Hispanic citizens were portrayed. He wanted the show to reflect how he felt about the issue without being inflammatory. This was prophetic due to the real-life Furguson incident, which occurred toward the end of season 1. See more
