Remember this? Well now that Barack Obama looks like he’s gonna be the front-runner for the Democratic party in the November elections, 50 Cent has changed his mind on who he’s rooting for. Go figure. Well, of course that’s not the reason he mentioned. He says “because he heard Barack Speak.” Whatever homie…
During a recent interview with MTV at his Connecticut mansion, 50 Cent told reporters that he has switched from supporting Hillary Clinton for president to backing Barack Obama after hearing his speech on race. “I heard Obama speak,” said the rapper. “He hit me with that he-just-got-done-watching-‘Malcolm X,’ and I swear to God, I’m like, ‘Yo, Obama!'” He threw his fist in the air. “I’m Obama to the end now, baby!” But hold on, 50 also admitted that he’s become bored with the overall race for the White House.
“To be honest, I haven’t been following that anymore. I lost my interest,” he said. “I listened to some of the debate and things that they were saying, and I just got lost in everything that was going on. … Don’t look for my vote, for me to determine nothing on that. Just say, ’50 Cent, he don’t know, so don’t ask Fiddy.’
“I just think there’s people that might not be ready for an African-American president,” he continued. “It’ll be an issue, believe it or not.” [ VIA EUR WEB » ]
I’m not gonna bash shitty cent though. He’s entitled to his own opinion, and he has a right to change it whenever the hell he wants. It’s just strange how all of a sudden he’s all, “Eff Hillary, I’m for Barack now!” just cause he heard one speech. But hey, who am I to judge?
