G-Unit leader 50 Cent is following in the steps of Lil Wayne by releasing his own public service announcement lashing out against corporations and politicians.
Unlike Weezy’s PSA on Apple co-founder Steve Jobs‘ passing, 50 used the opportunity to share his thoughts on corporate America.
“The world is so f***** up People don’t seem to care anymore People seem to have distanced themselves from other people’s problems, they have been programmed not to care! Politicians are corrupt…So many companies are corrupt and taking excessive profits in certain sectors…….and we keep allowing this s*** to happen There are 1 billion plus people living in extreme poverty. You know what that is? You don’t know if your getting your next meal, no shelter, no medical. You have no chance of hustling your way out of it! We have been programmed to not give a s*** about these people! Well I have woken up and Im not turning a blind eye anymore! Im not playing the game anymore. Our Company CEO’s and politicians want us to keep our heads down and not ask questions. Not demand the truth they don’t want us to care, they have trained us to turn a blind eye! Because they control us and profit from us this way! to push back at them questions and threatens their lifestyles.” [sic] (This Is 50)
Fif said his aim is to ultimately address the global hunger problem.
“Children are dying everyday from hunger. Its f***** up, its wrong and I am angry Im not going to shut up or give up – f*** the system, its wrong. wake up we are being used! Innocent children are dying each day…. we need to shout out to companies, politicians that we aren’t playing their games anymore We are waking up to their lies and deceitful dealings Im angry, Im going to make a difference and no one is going to stop me Join me if your tired of being used and manipulated Make this world fair for everyone” [sic] (This Is 50)
Bloggers have speculated over where 50’s public service announcement ultimately stemmed from.
Somebody isn’t happy. Earlier today, 50 vented out his frustration over the hate that he keeps receiving on Twitter in one form or the other. As you can see from his tweets, he is clearly unhappy from the response that he’s been getting on his Street King mission although the page has already clocked over 310,000 Likes. He has now addressed the situation on his Street King Facebook page. (Hip Hop N More)
Last month, the G-Unit leader opened up about his Street King campaign to feed a billion children throughout the world.
“What’s up, it’s your boy 50 Cent,” the G-Unit leader said in a video. “I’m actually out here in Austrailia on tour right now and man, I grew up without money but I didn’t grow up hungry. It’s a lot of people out there that are actually hungry — actually dying ofhunger. And I feel like it’s our responsiblity to come together and do things to create a solution for this actual problem. What I’ve seen from this actual run, when I was out in Africa, was unbeilievable, the devastation and desperation of people who don’t know when they’ll receive their next meal. Or if they’re going to receive their next meal. I want to feed a billion kids and I need your help to do it. I need you to utilize your energy, your voice, to provide additional motivation for me at times. My new project is called SK, Street King and y’all know the plan. I just told y’all the plan. I want to feed a billion kids. It’s your boy 50 Cent.” (Street King)
