Rapper 50 “Fiddy” Cent can’t seem to make up his mind who is is supporting for president. Maybe he should flip a coin?
Just weeks ago, America knew where 50 Cent stood in this year’s presidential race: solidly in Camp Hillary.
“I just think she’d do a good job,” the MC said in a widely circulated Fox News video. “There’s nothing bad about Obama in my eyes either, but I just think Hillary would be my choice.
“I’m not sure America is ready to have a black president,” he continued. “I think they might kill him.”
However, after hearing Obama’s stunning speech on race in America earlier this month, the rapper pulled what is now commonly known in political circles as a “Bill Richardson.” In other words, he changed his mind after the speech and switched to Obama’s side.
“I heard Obama speak,” the rapper told the MTV News crew assembled at his Connecticut mansion to hear the new G-Unit LP and talk about his upcoming video game. “He hit me with that he-just-got-done-watching-‘Malcolm X,’ and I swear to God, I’m like, ‘Yo, Obama!’ ” He threw his fist in the air. “I’m Obama to the end now, baby!”
However, he said he’s now not certain which side he’s on. “To be honest, I haven’t been following that anymore. I lost my interest,” he said. “I listened to some of the debate and things that they were saying, and I just got lost in everything that was going on. … Don’t look for my vote, for me to determine nothing on that. Just say, ’50 Cent, he don’t know, so don’t ask Fiddy.’
