50 Cent has gone public with his choice for President in the upcoming election, Donald Trump.
The rapper caught the internet by surprise when he took to Instagram to share the news that he’s supporting Donald Trump. His endorsement seemingly came out of nowhere as 50 has called out Trump in past social media posts.
In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, he slammed President Trump’s response saying, “you wanted a reality show host as president? Well now you’re on Survivor.”
What caused 50 to change his mind? He shared a screengrab from the CNBC program Power Lunch that showed the top tax rates by state under Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s proposed tax plan.
“WHAT THE F***!” 50 wrote. “(VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT, F*** NEW YORK The Knicks never win anyway.”
“Don’t care Trump doesn’t like Black people 62% are you out of ya f*****g mind,” he added.
While CNBC’s headline is certainly eye-grabbing, it should be noted the tax hike only applies to Americans earning more than $400,000 a year. On average, Americans earning less than $400,000 would receive tax cuts under Biden’s plan.

50 then went on to share another Instagram post where he’s smiling with his hands held together in prayer.
“I just remembered I’m bankrupt, so I’m looking for a gracious loan can anyone help a brother out,” he wrote.
“LOL,” 50 then added.
