50 Cent is one of hip-hop’s biggest trouble makers, so it was no surprise when the “Get Rich Or Die Trying” rapper threw some major shade at Empire producers and name-dropped Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard on Instagram. Taraji, being the outspoken cookie she is, responded with a simple tweet that shut 50 down in the calmest way possible.

“I pay attention to $’s NOT cents,” she wrote.

Oddly, her ferocity excited 50. At this year’s Billboard Awards, 50 snapped a photo with the Empire star, shooting down all rumors of a rivalry.

“I was getting ready to kiss her,” 50 joked while promoting the upcoming season of Power in NYC. “I just walked up to her,” he explained. “She has a little fiery side to her.”

Watch the “Power” producer/actor gush over Taraji, above.
