50 Cent trolls America again.

The rap mogul and “Power” producer suddenly has had second thoughts about ending the blockbuster cable drama.

Curtis Jackson, 43, who executive produces of the runaway Starz series, wrote on social media that he is pumping the brakes on his initial yearning to end the show after its sixth season.

“I Changed my mind POWER is not going to be over after season 6. This s— is to good #lecheminduroi #bransoncognac #starzplay

The timing of Fifty’s post on Instagram is curious. “Power” showrunner Courtney Kemp and multiple star cast members had just celebrated the series officially coming to a close.

Kemp and Starz don’t seem surprised that Fifty wants to continue the momentum of the dynamic series.

“Season 6 brings us to the end of what we know is just the first chapter of the ‘Power’ story. However, as one chapter comes to an end, another will begin,” Starz’s president of programming Carmi Zlotnik said in a statement obtained by CNN. “Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent have created a world rich with complex and dynamic characters and there are a number of stories we plan to tell as we continue to explore and expand the ‘Power’ universe.”

“Power” was an enthralling and pulse-racing drama — catapulting multiple actors to higher levels of fame, including Omari Hardwick who played the iconic character Ghost, as well as Joseph Sikora, Naturi Naughton, Lela Loren, Rotimi and Michael Rainey. The show also made producer Courtney Kemp a household name within the film industry.

The series will, therefore, return in August.
