'Don't want to be 20 Cent': 50 Cent doubles-down on his support for Trump as he slams Biden tax plan


Rapper 50 Cent has urged his fans to vote for Donald Trump and said that Joe Biden’s tax policy will turn him into ’20 Cent.’

The Hip-Hop mogul, 45, sparked a social media circus on Monday when he shared an image of the super tax the Democrat candidate was proposing – 62 percent for those earning more than $400,000 in New York City, 50 Cent’s home.

‘WHAT THE F—! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT.’ 50 Cent wrote. ‘I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f—ing mind.’

Despite the backlash, including from his ex-girlfriend Chelsea Handler, ‘Fiddy’ doubled-down on his support for Trump in a tweet Tuesday: ‘I don’t want to be 20cent. 62% is a very, very, bad idea. I don’t like it!’ 

50 Cent, 45, doubled down on his endorsement of Donald Trump based on his tax policies in another tweet on Tuesday, saying: 'I don't want to be 20cent'

The rapper, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, gave his ex a playful response, tagging Handler and posting a facepalm emoji writing, ‘Oh my God this is effecting my love life now.’

He continued: ‘I love ya Gator, don’t let Trump and Joe Biden come between us girl,’ to which Handler kept the conversation going as she retweeted his response and offered to pay his taxes.

She wrote: ‘Hey f***r! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses. Happily! Black lives matter. That’s you, f***er! Remember?’ 

But Nigel Farage, dubbed ‘Mr Brexit,’ highlighted 50 Cent’s tweet in support for Trump, calling it ‘a big moment.’  

The tax rates would not apply to people who make less than $400,000 annually, which makes for about 98.2 percent of Americans. 

Biden has pledged to hike taxes said for those earning more than $400,000, but has insisted there will be ‘no new taxes’ beyond that.

The current top U.S. statutory tax rate is 37 percent with the average earner in the highest tax bracket paying 26.8 percent after taking into account tax breaks, including loopholes, deductions, exemptions, credits and preferential rates.

It is not the first time 50 Cent has backed Trump – appearing to show his support for the Republican before the 2016 election.

In March 2016 he posted a photograph of the two of them together, with the caption: ‘Me and My President maybe, only in America’.

Lots of love: Despite the split the two have remained amicable

The rap artist was met with a variety of reactions to his controversial post on Monday.

One user wrote, ‘Pay your fair share. You’re rich stop acting broke,’ while journalist David Leavitt called The Candy Shop rapper ‘a selfish piece of shit’ for putting his finances ahead of all other issues.

’50 Cent can go f*** himself for choosing his personal wealth over the health of the nation,’ Leavitt wrote.

The post also garnered support from conservative commentators including Candace Owens and Tomi Lahren, who wrote, ‘Welcome to the Trump Train!’
