Empire may be a new fan favorite for the 14 million people who tuned in for its record-breaking season finale, but not everyone is singing its praises and giving props to Black Hollywood.. In a recent interview with Global 14 Lil Bow Wow decided to a little dry hating towards the show while insinuating that he is above appearing on an urban program now that he is on the cast of CSI: Cyber..
The Breakfast Club’s Charlamagne Tha God caught wind of Bow Wow’s comments and went on to respond to him by saying pretty much everything that we’re all probably thinking right now, except for Love & Hip Hop NY’s Erica Mena who quickly hopped on Twitter to respond with some fiery disses of her own..

“When we were still filming Cyber episodes, Empire‘s first episode premiered. Fans were saying, ‘Man, you should have been on the show.’ But we all don’t rap or play basketball. We can do so many things. There are young African-Americans who are intelligent enough to work at the FBI. That’s what’s so bright. Hopefully, I can help start a new wave of young black actors who don’t want to stereotype themselves.”-Lil Bow Wow/Global 14
