'Empire' TV Show Cast: 50 Cent Claps Back At Taraji P. Henson, 'She Talking About Me?' [VIDEO]

It looks like rapper and producer 50 Cent wants to keep the social media beef with Empire actress Taraji P. Henson going.

He took to his Instagram to respond to Henson after she dissed him on Twitter (following his shade on Instagram that began the feud in the first place).

Never one to back down from a chance to go at it with another celebrity on social media, 50 Cent made it clear Tuesday that he wants to have the last word.

He shared a video that showed a man showing him Henson's tweet against him and asked, "Is fine Taraji talking about me? I was gonna date [her] I have to think about this now."

But he couldn't help but laugh after his statement.

Interestingly enough, the creator of Empire, Lee Daniels, said 50 Cent agreed to make an appearance on the series long before his feud with Henson was sparked.

"Oh 50 didn't even see the show. I just talked to him...two weeks ago, he said he was going to come guest star," Daniels told Hip Hollywood just days before Empire's premiere Wednesday.

He added that fans will also see Derek Luke, Raven-Symone, Naomi Campbell, Tasha Smith & V. Bozeman this season. And maybe even Oprah! She definitely gave the show her seal of approval, regardless of 50 Cent's comments.

"Oprah said it redefines television. I said well come on and guest star on my show then and shut up."

50 Cent's video comes just days after he called out Empire for copying the marketing tactics for his hit Starz series Power.

He shared a side-by-side photo of the lead male characters of both series (Terrence Howard for Empire and Omari Hardwick for Power), and wrote in the caption, "Empire VS. Power LADIES what's up you be the judge. #SMSAUDIO #FRIGO #POWERTV."

He also shared a video of the new season of Power and added the caption, "POWER Season 2 is unbelievably good trust me. I have the best writers and show runner. I like Terrence Howard and Taraji Henson. I don't like that They would copy the marketing. #SMSAUDIO #FRIGO #POWERTV".

The posts have been deleted but you can see them here.

Henson responded to the messages when a fan asked her to share her thoughts.

She tweeted, "I pay attention to $s NOT cents?" before adding, "IJS I couldn't even find the 'cent' sign!! #ByeB---- #Empire".

Empire airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Fox.
