    http://contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed.nsf/mndwebpages/50 cent slams kanyes bush is racist comment

    At least he can see past the bullshit thats fed to Blacks. Funny thing is that most in the black community want to emulate "fitty's" gansta profile and persona creating a community of wannabe thugs. If you look at his background though, he's an american success story. His father left his mother before he was born and his mother died before he was 10 years old. He was raised by his grandparents but did whatever it took to succeed. It meant doing criminal but after his son was born he strove to be the best rapper he could possibly be for his sake.

    He's not an ideal role model but with all the rappers talking about gold rims, bling and hoes, young blacks could do worse so long as they look at how he overcame and not glorify his gansta ways.

    The one thing that 50 cent has and will always understand is that he doesn't expect jack shit from anyone. He's come up on his own and has no qualms about letting you know just that.

    He does, just not all the time. Most of the time he's promoting his clothing line. The hip-hop culture has never been about dressing like "normal adults."

    I love how the whole thing is worded: slams Kanye, lashed out against Kanye.

    He just said he didn't know where Kanye's comment came from.

    The article is practically throwing the first punch. Sensationalism much?

    Welcome to Journalism 101. Make the story more sensational than it is in order to sell it better. But if you think about it, 50 does "slam" Kanye because he spoke against him while he was bashing Bush. So thats like a slap in the face of all black people to stop someone from bashing Bush. Thats a slam. Maybe theyll be a beef war now between Kanye and 50. lol

    Uh-Oh! Now 50 Cent will be listed as an "oreo" and and "uncle Tom", he isn't "Diverse" the way the Democrats want him to be!

    Like cans of Copenhagen at a Chris Ledoux concert only for the opposite reason. What a bunch of lunatics. I was a stage guard at one of his concerts, when that song started it was our job to stand in front of the band and knock down as many cans as we could.
