The stars of “Power Book III: Raising Kanan” looked sharp at the premiere of the Starz hit show — but the cool threads were not seasonally appropriate.
“I’m very hot in this outfit. I’m on fire,” the series’ executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson told Page Six. “This s–t look cool, but it’s way hot.”
The entire cast was wearing ’90s-inspired clothes, that included sweatshirts jackets and long sleeves in 95-degree NYC summer weather.
Fiddy, 46, was the first to admit that the move may not have been the best option on the black carpet.
The casts of past “Power” seasons were also in attendance, and after the screening of the latest episodes, musical acts to take the stage at a Gotham Hall after-party included Big Daddy Kane, EPMD, NLE Choppa and 50 Cent himself.
The new season hits screens on July 18.
“Power Book III: Raising Kanan” is a prequel to the “Power” franchise, exploring the childhood of the series’ villainous Kanan character — which was originally played by 50 Cent, and based on his time in ’90s-era Jamaica, Queens.
He told us, “A lot of things [in the series] were taken from my personal life and put into the show.” But, with “Sascha Penn as the [executive producer], writer and showrunner, it was to his discretion what went in, and what did not go in … but it is loosely based on me. There’s something that’s grounded in South Jamaica, so they needed to know what it was like then.”
The rapper and TV star, whose mother was killed when he was just 8 years old, added, “I feel like my mother’s looking down and smiling at me right now, absolutely … my mother was strongest person in my life.”
