Grammy ® , Pulitzer Prize and Hottest 100 winner Kendrick Lamar to appear in the brand new episode of hit series POWER, premiering exclusively on Stan this Sunday, July 29
Stan has today announced that hot on the heels of his sell-out Australian multi-city arena tour which finished yesterday, international superstar Kendrick Lamar will guest-star opposite 50 Cent in this Sunday’s brand new episode of Stan’s hit series POWER, premiering exclusively on Stan at 4pm.
The platinum-selling, Grammy®-award and Pulitzer Prize winner is one of the rare artists who has achieved critical and commercial success while earning the respect and support of those who inspired him. A native of Compton, Calif., Kendrick Lamar released his debut album, “good kid, m.A.A.d city” in October 2012 which debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and earned him seven Grammy Award nominations. His second album, “To Pimp a Butterfly,” released in March 2015 immediately earned rave reviews and topped the Billboard 200, garnering Lamar five Grammy® nominations with a win for Best Rap Album. On April 14 2017, Lamar released his fourth studio album, “DAMN.” which sold 603, 300 copies in its first week and remained number one on the Billboard 200 for four consecutive weeks. Complex Magazine claimed it is his “most ambitious album to date” and Rolling Stone named him “the most gifted rapper of a generation.” Locally Lamar topped Triple J’s annual Hottest 100 earlier this year before going on to make history by winning a Pulitzer Prize for music.
POWER triumphantly returned for its highly-anticipated fifth season on Sunday, July 1. The hugely successful New York-based crime drama from executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and show creator Courtney A. Kemp continues to raise the stakes and in the upcoming episode 505 “Happy Birthday,” The St. Patricks celebrate Tariq’s birthday… the first time without Raina and Tasha finds a shoulder to cry on in Terry Silver. Ghost is on the outs with Tate and the Queens Child Project and discovers Dre is ready to replace him in the legitimate world, driving him toward reckless behaviour. Kanan drops Tariq back at school, the two of them bonding over their shared mistrust of Ghost.
POWER is a visionary drama that straddles the glamorous Manhattan lifestyles of the rich and infamous and the underworld of the international drug trade. The cast is led by Omari Hardwick as James “Ghost” St. Patrick, a man trying to escape his role as a drug kingpin for a legitimized life in the elite of NYC; Joseph Sikora as his brother in arms in the drug business, Tommy Egan; Naturi Naughton plays Ghost’s fierce wife Tasha St. Patrick; and Lela Loren is his first love, Assistant U.S. Attorney Angela Valdes.
POWER is created by Courtney A. Kemp who executive produces alongside Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Mark Canton, Randall Emmett, and Gary Lennon. The show is also produced by G-Unit Films and Television, the production company launched by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, and Canton’s Atmosphere Entertainment MM.
