50 Cent: Black Men Identify With Trump Over Biden

Rapper 50 Cent said this week that Black men identify with former President Donald Trump more than they do with President Joe Biden in this election cycle.

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, made the assertion during an appearance on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, when he met with lawmakers alongside civil rights attorney Ben Crump regarding the creation of generational wealth for black Americans and representation for Black entrepreneurs in the liquor industry.

While Jackson said that he hadn’t made up his mind about who he was voting for in the 2024 election, he told CBS News congressional correspondent Nikole Killion that Black men identify with Trump over Biden because “they’ve got RICO charges [too].”

Trump faces a RICO violation charge in Georgia based on election interference.

Speaking about his meeting with lawmakers, Jackson stated, “This is really exciting for me to be here. I got a chance to meet with both sides today, and it feels really good. [Lawmakers] don’t agree on a lot of stuff, and so to get them to agree on seeing me was an accomplishment in itself.”

“My experience here has been great. I went to talk to them about economic opportunities for everybody, and it’s really exciting. The response I got makes me feel that there’s bright things ahead of us,” he added.

The 48-year-old rapper shared a video of himself with House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) on X.

As caption, he wrote, “Speaker of the house (sic) Mike Johnson (R) my fellow Shreveport friend said he is happy to see me making things happen creating lots of jobs.”

Jackson has weighed in on Trump’s chances in the election in the past, as he said in March that he believed that the Republican presidential candidate would win the election in November.

“I think Trump’s gonna be president again, but I’m not gonna say that,” he said.

In February, the recording artist also suggested that he might support Trump, in reaction to a plan supported by New York City Mayor Eric Adams to give families of illegal immigrants in NYC prepaid credit cards. “Maybe Trump is the answer,” he wrote in a post on Instagram.
