Last week, Rap icon 50 Cent surprised fans when he spoke in favor of same- sex relationships, revealing he himself had engaged in- as he put it- ‘fetish areas’ in the past.
Commended for cosigning with popular opinion, the MC’s remarks on the matter followed support for gay marriage by President Obama and ROC President Jay Z. However, what many do not know is that 50′s comments on the matter did not end there.
His full statement below…

“I smell a follower… is that you?”
Ever since President Obama announced his support of same sex marriages, it seems those previously opposed to the issue have suddenly had a change of heart.
Take 50 Cent for one. Indeed, after joking about ‘shooting up a gay wedding’ in 2010, he has spoken out in support of same sex relationships, but challenges its supporters to provide evidence as to where it endorsed by any major religion.

As has been making news all day via boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, ‘Just A Little Bit’ rapper 50 Cent has been a little under the weather. Taking to Twitter, the
former hit rapper still assured fans of his forthcoming efforts by stating:

Check out 50 Cent, playing the role of Hip Hop mogul ‘Glade‘ in FOX’s ‘The Finder‘.
Directed by ‘Bones’ star David Boreanz, 50 starred in last night’s episode which saw him hit flex his oft overlooked acting chops.
His stint in the series comes months after he engaged in a public spat with label exec Jimmy Iovine, over the release of a new LP, an LP he accused Iovine of withdrawing support from.

Remember when 50 Cent‘s music was inescapable on radio? Remember when 50 Cent was the biggest rapper in the game? Remember when 50 Cent was relevant to music? Think hard…
Since the early 00′s rap music has mutated to an unrecognizable Pop/Dance hybrid with only subtle traces of authentic Hip-Hop. It’s all about production, auto-tune, and a stuttered chorus. Can 50 Cent restore Hip-Hop’s integrity with his long-awaited fifth studio album? Only time will tell…
Still, read his plans after the jump and sound-off below.

Undeterred by the backlash that greeted his last lavish showing, 50 Cent is still keen to show that he’s still making it rain – even if his career isn’t.
Taking to his trusty Twitter account, the rapper – real name Curtis Jackson – tweeted the shots of him and his green. Yet, this time, was keen to show that it wasn’t to make folk green with envy.
Of the money (which he says he won betting on Sunday’s 49′ers game), he wrote:
“Just watched a 500,000 dollar foot ball game get on my level, I’m giving this money to my nana she gonna faint LMAO all she do is go to the church”.
“Nana” or no nana, this is still all flavours of tacky. Yes, he’s rich, but clearly oh so poor in the confidence category. Indeed, who would have thought the man who – quite literally -had it “all” 5 years ago, wouldn’t be able to sell any records today; now forced to prove his worth by flashing his cash online? How the mighty have fallen. Thud.

50 Cent may have less than 50 fans left, yet one thing the rapper is keen to show he does have is money. And lots of it.
Taking to his trusty Twitter account (which has been the site of many a label rant as of late), the G-Unit general shared these humble shots with his followers.
Surrounded by stacks of cash, the former chart-topper (said to be worth over $250 Million) is believed to have taken the pics in his Las Vegas hotel room last night. He was in Sin City to promote his new headphone line at the Consumer Electronics Show.
Speaking of sins, the 36 year old was joined by boxer and woman-beater Floyd Mayweather. Mr Weather is on the way to jail for laying the smackdown on his baby’s mother – not, of course, before returning to the ring for a blockbuster showdown with Manny Pacquiao.
Sam’s 2 Pence:
On a serious note, displays such as this are dually disgusting and embarrassing. It’s elementary mindsets such as 50′s which function to hold the Afro-diaspora back. Oh, and if there’s any doubt: yes, I went there.
How often do the Steve Jobs and Bill Gates’ of the world sit counting stacks and “making it rain”? The answer to which highlights a potent point. It’s always those who have the least, who stay claiming to have everything.
Of course, 50′s dripping green. Everyone knows that. Yet, the fact he has to flaunt what the masses already know he has, shows insecurity in other areas. One look at his record sales and all becomes apparent…

Unfortunately for fans of 50 Cent, the drama surrounding his relationship with record executive and long time friend Jimmy Iovine has played out quite publicly within the last few weeks, forcing many to question the Rapper’s future at the label and quite interestingly- his mental state.
