Just this Monday 50 the Get Rich or Die Tryin’ star and boss of G-Unit had in an Instagram post endorsed president Trump for the upcoming US presidential election that’s coming up just in a few days.
He will be among the black celebrities to have endorsed President Trump for re election and many of the Trump supporters are happy to have his support, while the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris supporters are throwing shade at him.
This move was motivated by the fact that he saw the Joe Biden proposed tax rates for several states.
He explains that he is frustrated by the fact that the formal Vice President Joe Biden who is currently the Democratic presidential candidate, was seeking to jack up the taxes for New York City, California and some other states.
This move would essentially see those earning above $400,000 yearly been taxed more.
He said “WHAT THE FUCK! (VOTE For TRUMP) IM OUT, FUCK NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway.”
He went further along in his captions to say ‘I don’t care Trump doesn’t like people 62% are you out of ya fucking mind…’
50 cent as we all probably know would supposedly not be happy with an increase In Tax, because of course he a top earner, as he was quote one time saying how he made over $150m in his last TV series Power and he is still making more even from his current show For Life on abc and other business ventures that he controls or have interests in.
Just this year alone many celebrities and influencers have left and some are still planning to leave California because of the increasing tax rates.
The move by 50 may not move the needle a lot for many of the black folks who don’t even earn high figures and so they may not be bordered by the tax rate because it may not really affect them at least for now, but you can bet that the top earners are with fifty on this one even though thy may not voice out to prevent a backlash from their communities.
