Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) also tweeted a photo with the rapper, lauding him for his TV series “Power,” of which he is the executive producer and star.

Rep. Tony Cárdenas (D-Calif.) also posted photos with the rapper.

Others shared their own photos and videos of the rapper’s visit to the Capitol.

Marisa Schultz, New York Post’s Washington correspondent, tweeted that 50 Cent was advocating for Starz, the channel that airs “Power,” to remain available through Comcast Xfinity.
