The Cast of Power Needs You To Chill with All the Empire Comparisons

"Elevate yourselves, people," says star Joseph Sikora.

On June 6 Power is set to kick off its highly anticipated second season, and to say we’re excited is an understatement. The gritty yet sophisticated Starz series looks to pick right back up where last season left off. But the drama isn’t just relegated to what we see on screen every Saturday night.

Constant comparisons to Fox’s hit Empire, combined with Power’s executive producer 50 Cent’s public trolling of Empire star Taraji P. Henson has helped create a rivalry that simply doesn’t exist, at least according to the cast of Power.

Watch as cast members Joseph Sikora, Naturi Naughton, Lela Loren, and Omari Hardwick dispel any thoughts of an Empire beef, as well as give their two cents on why any comparisons between the shows should cease.
