Last week we told you about 50 Cent’s goal to donate 1 billion meals to hungry children through the UN’s World Food Program, but this week the rapper took to his Facebook page to channel the spirit of Occupy Wall Street protesters and blast greedy corporations.

The world is so f*cked 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 sh*t 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 sh*t 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.

Children are dying everyday from hunger. Its f*cked up, its wrong and I am angry
Im not going to shut up or give up – f*ck 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

Since rapping his way to stardom, Fiddy has become quite the businessman. He has had lucrative endorsement deals with Reebok and Vitamin Water and has become one of the richest men in hip hop. Now, it seems like 50 is trying to use his wealth and fame to help others, but is his rant a little hypocritical?

Can 50 Cent call out corporate America despite benefitting greatly from it and promoting a culture of materialism in his music? 

Sound off!

  • i always think that if you want to do something for someone why does the rest of the world have to know about it? if curtis is so sincere, just do it.

    A genre of music that, on the whole, promotes ‘get rich or die trying’. or ‘all about the benjamins’ or ‘cash money millionaires’ or some other materialistic, empty concept. and suddenly he has a problem with making profits?
    the whole idea of a publicly traded company is that anyone who can afford to can buy stock in the company and become a part owner in the company. very democratic.
    but the people qualified to run the companies, those that went to school to get MBAs or accounting degrees or law degrees paid dues to get there. sorry Fiddy isn’t qualified to run a Fortune 500 company, despite the street education he so proudly boasts of. he could have elected to pursue these avenues, instead of ‘hustlin’. his choice.
    by the way, did he tweet that on his iphone, or post it to facebook? how many tickets did he sell on ticketmaster? Is sony his record label?
    What a joke. Trying to stay relevant. call it what it is.
