50 Cent Doubles Down on Trump Support: ‘I Don’t Want to Be 20 Cent’
Rapper blasts Joe Biden's 'very bad' tax plan
Hip hop star 50 Cent repeated his support for President Donald Trump by criticizing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's “very bad” tax plan.
50 cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, posted on Instagram on Tuesday.
“WHAT THE F***! (VOTE ForTRUMP)."
“I’M OUT. F*** NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway.”
“I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people,” he added.
“62% are you out of ya f***ing mind.”
As Neon nettle reported on Tuesday, Biden's tax proposals could see those earning more than $400,000 a year hit with rates of 62.6 percent for those who live in California and 62 percent for New York City residents.
The rapper doubled-down on opposition against Biden on Tuesday by agreeing with Trump senior adviser Katrina Pierson that he “don’t want to be 20cent.”
“Yeah, I don’t want to be 20cent. 62% is a very, very bad idea. I don’t like it,” he tweeted.
I guess 50 cent don’t want to end up 20 cent. 🇺🇸 https://t.co/bqAOprgOlP— Katrina Pierson (@KatrinaPierson) October 19, 2020
“In California, New Jersey, and New York City, taxpayers earning more than $400,000 a year could face combined state and local statutory income tax rates of more than 60%,” CBS reported.
50 cent is one of many rappers breaking ranks with Democrats.
Last week, the Trump campaign revealed it was working with iconic rapper Ice Cube to build out its Platinum Plan to economically empower African-Americans.
Ice Cube, whose legal name is O’Shea Jackson Jr., gave permission to reveal he has been working with Trump on the groundbreaking platform for black Americans.
Black Conservative Federation founder Diante Johnson tweeted:
“So @icecube has officially given the Trump campaign permission to reveal that he has been helping us develop President Trump’s groundbreaking black Trump platform: The Platinum Plan!”

Ice Cube tweeted:
“Facts: I put out the CWBA. Both parties contacted me,” he tweeted Wednesday.
“Dems said we’ll address the CWBA after the election."
"Trump campaign made some adjustments to their plan after talking to us about the CWBA.”

CNN exit polling from the 2016 election showed Trump with just 8 percent support among black voters.
Trump's approval rating among black registered voters jumped 9 percentage points from a survey taken earlier that same month to 24 percent.
