It is no secret the rap community doesn’t have cleanest vocabulary. Frequently, they degrade women and minorities by using trashy curse words that would probably make their grandmothers want to pour whole bottles of soap in their mouths. 50 Cent is not foreign to this concept, as he so gracefully puts it in his song, “In Da Club.”
“Don’t try to act like you ain’t know where we been either n—– /In the club all the time n—– / its about to pop off n—–,” 50 says at the end of the song after referring to girls wanting to have sex with him as “hoes.” These words do not say in his songs, however. They also show up on his Twitter account.
In a September tweet, the rapper said “If you a man and your over 25 and you don’t eat p—- just kill your self damn it. The world will be a better place. Lol.”
On the surface, this only seems somewhat shady. He could be talking about men who are pretty stingy on reciprocating oral sex. I mean, this was a follow up tweet to one talking about how bad he wanted a blow job. The thing that makes this really messed up is that it happened days after the untimely death of gay college student, Tyler Clementi. Regardless his intention, advising anyone to kill themselves is pretty wacked.
If this is not enough to convince you that 50 Cent has word vomit when it comes to anti-gay remarks, try this on for size. In a 2004 interview with Playboy magazine, he said, “I ain’t into f——. I don’t like gay people around me, because I’m not comfortable with what their thoughts are. I’m not prejudiced. I just don’t go with gay people and kick it–we don’t have that much in common. I’d rather hang out with a straight dude. But women who like women, that’s cool.” In the same article, he claimed his own mother, the woman who gave birth to him, was a bisexual.
50 Cent: Stop saying stupid shit!
How do you know what you have in common with people? Not only people in your band G-Unit like cars, having sex, drinking expensive alcohol, and working out. Wow, it sucks being judged based upon your exterior, doesn’t it? If there is more to you, then how can you say that there aren’t people out there like you? Individualism is great, but I find it hard to believe that only straight people like the things you like.
Secondly, if you’re going to be against something, you can’t only support half of it. How is a woman/woman relationship different than a man/man relationship in your eyes? The double standard thing is a little strange. Being a lesbian doesn’t make you any less gay.
Third, don’t worry 50. I’m sure a lot of people don’t want to hang out with you, gay and straight men as well as gay and straight women.
Lastly, did you kiss your bisexual mother with that homophobic mouth of yours? (His mother was killed when he was 12. You’d think he’d honor her by not trashing the LGBT community, which she was apart of).
